[gpfsug-discuss] Texas Memory Systems Metadata Proposal - Request for interested parties

Dear GPFS User Group members.

No one wants the GPFS user group to turn into a sales marketing list, so this will be the one and only email on this subject from me in 2012.

I was at the user group meeting in Warwick when every speaker seemed to mention solid state storage as a requirement for GPFS metadata and I met a number of people interested in using our systems for metadata at MEW.

I am trying to create an Academic and Research offering in the UK, which would allow for academic and government research institutions to purchase a pair of RamSan systems specifically for metadata, at a special price.

(FYI - Currently a pair of 2TB systems each providing perhaps 250,000 IOPS would be close to £108,000. I would hope to be able to offer this solution for something below £50k, if there is enough interest from the community. )

TMS normally does not discount at all, so I need your declaration of interest to create a large enough community to initiate an exception.

This email is therefore trying to gauge how much interest there is in having a special offering for this metadata solution.

May I ask that you send me a personal email at the address below, if you would be interested (no commitment) in such an offering.

Thank you.

Kind regards
