OCZ have launched the Deneva 2 and Intrepid Series mSATA SSD lineup for OEM clients. The small form factor drives are designed for a wide range of embedded applications such as slim servers, tablets, dual drive notebooks, and network security devices. They are set to deliver superior performance over hard drives while meeting the stringent reliability, security and cost-saving needs of enterprise storage environments.
Embedded system designers require small format, cost-effective SSD solutions that do not compromise performance or reliability. OCZ mSATA SSDs, unlike standard drives, are much smaller with no outer housing, making them an easy to deploy storage solution for mobile computing, boot modules for virtualization applications, or HDD caching, allowing for high capacities, high performance, and low power consumption in a very compact form factor.
Ryan Peterson, CEO of OCZ Technology Group says:
OCZ Deneva 2 and Intrepid mSATA solid state drives provide OEMs with the flexibility to address storage and caching requirements within innovative form factors, including embedded and dual-drive devices and blade servers. These new SSDs are available in a wide range of capacities and configurations to deliver exceptional scalability, performance, and endurance, all with a compact and energy efficient design.
The new OCZ Deneva 2 mSATA SSDs include key enterprise reliability features such as best-in-class endurance, and advanced encryption and ECC. For maximum bandwidth, the Deneva 2 drive offers SATA 3 6Gbps connectivity, with up to 80,000 random 4k write IOPS and 550MB/sec bandwidth. Likewise, the OCZ Intrepid mSATA Series sports Indilinx Arowana Flash Transition Layer with Hyper-Queuing, resulting in increases sequential write speeds and IOPS. The Intrepid series also maximizes the lifespan of low-endurance flash with Indilinx Ndurance Technology with sophisticated wear-leveling algorithms for reduced write amplification and advanced over provisioning.
The Deneva 2 and Intrepid Series mSATA solid state drives are now available for sampling to OEM customers.
