OCZ Technology Teams With SandForce Inc. to Produce Next Generation Solid State Drives Which Raise the Bar in Enterprise, Industrial, and OEM Storage Solutions
OCZ's SandForce-Driven Deneva Series Implements the Latest Interface and NAND Technology to Provide Maximum Performance and Reliability to Enterprise Clients
OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory modules for computing devices and systems, is teaming up with SandForce(R) Inc. to deliver exceptional new SSD products that leverage Serial-ATA (SATA) III and cost-effective NAND flash components. With the updated architecture, the OCZ Deneva Family will continue to lead the way in the transition from hard disc drives (HDDs) to SSD data storage and IT infrastructures. OCZ is set to begin sample distribution to current and potential clients in the fourth quarter of 2010, with mass production beginning in the first quarter of 2011.
"We have a strong partnership with SandForce and are excited to utilize their new SF-2000 family of SSD processors in our next generation Enterprise and Industrial Solid State Drive products," said Alex Mei, CMO at the OCZ Technology Group. "Together we will be able to offer our enterprise clients a very robust line of ultra reliable 6Gb/s SSDs in a variety of interfaces ranging from SATA to SAS within our customizable Deneva Series."
"OCZ is an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of Solid State Drives with innovative solutions for the storage market," said Jeremy Werner, Director of Marketing at SandForce. "We are pleased to work closely with them as we launch the new SF-2000 SSD Processor Family for the Enterprise and Industrial markets."
The new and improved OCZ Deneva Family will build on its enterprise-class reliability and offer the most cutting-edge technology available, including SATA 6Gbps and 3X-2Xnm SLC, MLC, and eMLC flash memory support. Using SandForce's second generation SF-2500/2600 SSD processors, the drives reach new, unmatched performance with 500MB/s transfer rates and 60,000 random 4KB write IOPS. Furthermore, SF-2500/2600-based Deneva drives feature unparalleled endurance, data protection, and security, giving clients peace of mind when factoring in Tier-0/1 enterprise-level expectations and total cost of ownership (TCO).
Aside from the industry-leading performance and features, the Deneva Series also offers:
-- Variety of Interface options (SATA, SAS, PCIe, and OCZ's proprietary High-Speed Data Link that eliminates I/O bottlenecks known as HSDL)
-- Wide range of available form factors (1.8", 3.5", Custom, etc.)
-- Tailored Firmware and Functionality
-- Locked specifications & BOM
-- Customer-specific factory test requirements
-- Dedicated engineering support
Going beyond the superior speed, durability, and power efficiency over traditional mechanical hard drives, Deneva's ability to provide a custom solution with lower cost flash components ensures ultimate compatibility, performance, and TCO that other SSD lines cannot deliver.
SandForce is transforming data storage by pioneering the use of standard flash memory in enterprise, client, and industrial computing applications with its innovative SSD (Solid State Drive) Processors. By delivering unprecedented reliability, performance, and energy efficiency, SSDs based on patent-pending SandForce DuraClass technology unleash the full potential for mass-market adoption of SSDs using NAND flash memory. Founded in 2006, SandForce is funded by leading venture capital investors and first tier storage companies. For more information, visit SandForce at http://www.sandforce.com.
