OCZ Launches Three New Enterprise SSDs

CES 2011, Las Vegas - OCZ has a trio of new SandForce drives for the enterprise market. The new Vertex 3 EX, Vertex 3 Pro and Z-Drive R3 all made an appearance at their suite.




The new Z-Drive R3 is a bootable PCIe SSD similar to a RevoDrive but designed for the enterprise market.




The spec sheet shows the Z-Drive R3 being able to read at up to 1,000MB/s and writing data at 950MB/s.




The new Vertex 3 EX is a 2.5" form factor model with SLC flash.




OCZ states that the Vertex 2 EX is capable of delivering 550MB/s read and 525MB/s write speeds. The IOPS go all the way to 80K at 4K random write.




The Vertex 3 Pro is the entry level next generation SandForce enterprise drive and uses MLC or eMLC flash.




The Vertex 3 Pro delivers the same maximum read and write speeds as the Vertex 3 EX but loses around 5K IOPS per second. With 75K random 4K IOPS the Pro model should deliver blazing fast performance at a much lower cost than the other two drives.
