Micron Flash Storage Drives to be Leveraged across WHIPTAIL Arrays to Increase Efficiencies for Customers
WHIPPANY, N.J. – August 21, 2012 – WHIPTAIL, the world leader in high performance, 100 percent silicon storage arrays, has joined forces with Micron, a leading provider of advanced flash storage solutions, to offer Micron flash storage across all WHIPTAIL arrays. The news further supports WHIPTAIL’s dedication to helping customers achieve massive multipliers in time and money saved while significantly improving performance of any application request that drives their day-to-day business activities.
“As the most critical component in our solution-set, having a tightly aligned flash drive supplier keeps us ahead of the curve in product development, allowing us to collaborate and build even faster, more reliable arrays,” said James Candelaria, Chief Technology Officer and co-Founder of WHIPTAIL. “After meeting with and testing several drive manufacturers, we selected Micron due to its superior drive performance as well as our combined alignment on company culture and corporate values.”
WHIPTAIL is transforming the way companies turn IT capital and operational expenditures into a savings and profit engine through the use of flash or solid-state disk (SSD) drives. WHIPTAIL’s flash-based storage solutions – driven by Micron NAND flash – dramatically change the way applications are deployed and consumed by consolidating existing, cost-heavy storage arrays onto a smaller, yet more powerful footprint. As a result, power, cooling and floor space costs go down while performance goes up and businesses have money and time back in the bank.
“WHIPTAIL has clearly distinguished itself as a best-in-breed storage array vendor and we look forward to working together to provide customers with the fastest and most reliable solution for their performance-driven applications and IT tasks,” said Ed Doller, Vice President & General Manager of Enterprise Storage at Micron. “Organizations can no longer ignore the tremendous benefits flash storage plays and the combination of WHIPTAIL and Micron will help drive this next big wave of innovation.”
Micron has a strong history of innovation and leadership in Flash storage and memory solutions that are ubiquitous across computing, networking, server and mobile applications.
