Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., a committed technology leader, announces the immediate availability of dual-port functionality on OCZ's award-winning Z-Drive 6000 NVM Express (NVMe) Solid State Drive (SSD) series. The Z-Drive 6000's addition of dual port connection enables two host systems to concurrently access data from the same storage device or provides a redundant access path to the drive, providing SAS-like features such as High Availability (HA) that storage architects have come to rely on.
Now dual-ported, the Z-Drive 6000 series represents a complete solid state storage solution that supports the real-time I/O needs of business-critical enterprise applications and virtual infrastructures which require high bandwidth and low latency performance, but also need redundancy. The Z-Drive 6000's dual port capabilities enable redundant data access that eliminates a single point of failure and when two hosts are using the same drive, maintains Quality of Service (QoS) in an event when one data path is compromised. In addition to the dual port upgrade, the Z-Drive 6000 series now includes feature enhancements such as multiple namespaces, non-binary sector sizes, and self-encrypting drive (SED) with Crypto Erase.
"OCZ is excited to offer our customers this robust new firmware that enables the Z-Drive 6000 series to be a compelling solution, not only for low latency, high performance compute applications, but now also for storage-class applications where the additional enterprise class features are required to compliment latency and performance," said Daryl Lang, Vice President, SSD Product Enablement, Toshiba America Electronic Components.
The Z-Drive 6000 is a consistently high-performing NVMe SSD with sustained I/O performance over 700,000 IOPS for 4K random read, consistent low-latency of 30 Ã,Âµs, and features selectable power envelopes. In addition to dual port functionality, the U.2-based Z-Drive 6000 SSDs are hot-swappable, further distinguishing this next generation PCI Express technology from the traditional add-in-cards of the past. Designed for a wide range of storage infrastructures, this Z-Drive SSD series is available in 800GB to 6.4TB capacities in both read-intensive and mixed workload models.
Customers who have deployed final hardware and firmware Z-Drive 6000 SSDs and wish to upgrade to dual port firmware should contact OCZ Product Management for more details.
