All-flash storage, which was co-developed by South Korean hardware (HW) business and software (SW) company, has been included in top 5 of international performance evaluation.
A product co-developed by Taejin Infotech and Gluesys recorded the world's highest response speed (mili second) at the International Storage Performance Evaluation (SPC) that was recently pushed by the Korea Telecommunication Technology Association (TTA).
All-flash storage 'JetSpeed HHS3124F/2112F', which was co-developed by Taejin Infotech and Gluesys, ranked fifth in the world after Huawei and others in the certification of 'SPC-1'. This is the first time when a South Korean storage company has been evaluated globally.
Storage Performance Council (SPC) is a standardized performance certification body for global storage performance evaluation. Forty companies, including NetApp, IBM, and Huawei are members. In South Korea, TTA has participated in the body since 2014 in order to secure competitive edge in South Korea's HW.
SPC-1 certification is a benchmark test that measures data input & output performance and is targeted at database (DB), mail server, and storage for online transactions. SPC certification is not only used for evaluation of performance of products, but also used as a criterion for evaluation of RFP (Request for Proposal) from institutions and companies.
"Although South Korean businesses had technical skills in the HW field, they had difficulties in targeting South Korean and foreign markets due to lack of product recognition compared to global competitors." said a TTA official, adding, "After entering the top 5 in the SPC official test, Korean companies will be able to expand their market with competitive technology power."
