MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Virident Systems, a performance leader in flash-based storage class memory (SCM) solutions, today announced the company will be exhibiting at the Microsoft PASS Summit November 7-9, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Wash. Microsoft SQL Server is typically the database of choice in Windows environments appealing to database administrators who appreciate the affordability and power of SQL Server and are familiar with the distinctive Microsoft "look and feel." The Virident FlashMAX Drive delivers uncompromising performance to Microsoft SQL Server installations. The PASS Summit is the world's largest, most focused and most intensive conference for Microsoft SQL Server and business intelligence professionals.
SQL Server is becoming the primary choice for a broad range of Web 2.0 and Enterprise database developers who want a high-performance database that is reliable, affordable and easy to use. However, traditional hard-drive-based infrastructures are unable keep up with escalating I/O demands placed on their database deployments. The Virident FlashMAX II, with incredibly high IOPS performance, is a great match for OLTP type applications, while its great bandwidth allows it to replace racks of short-stroked disk drives in DSS type workloads. FlashMAX can increase the CPU core utilization on the database server, maximizing the investment in the hardware. It provides a simple and cost efficient solution, when combined with its vFAS (Flash management with Adaptive Scheduler) software, to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extreme low latencies for very high transaction response times.
