OCZ Announces Razer Fast SSD @ 2800MB/s
OCZ has recently shown off their latest Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD, capable of transferring a whopping 2800MB/s of data and competing 500K IOPS. The new drive is optimal for cloud computing and enterprise data applications.
You can get the card in two configurations; a half height card designed for tight spaces, and a full height card that is perfect for those larger multi-node rackmount servers.
Both cards support SLC (single level cell) or MLC (multi level cell) NAND flash. If you are looking for sheer speed, you’re going to want this solid-state drive.
No word on their pricing just yet, but according to their press release,
“The demand for higher performing PCIe-attached solid state storage continues to grow, and our new Z-Drive R4 represents an increased focus from OCZ to meet the needs of its enterprise and data center clients; it also represents a turning point in the evolution of PCIe SSDs,” said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. “The Z-Drive R4 provides the best of both worlds for storage architects by merging the industry-leading feature-sets of both the pure hardware and pure software based approaches to data management, while maintaining user-configurable flexibility not found in other devices.”
