OCZ launches new enterprise Deneva SSDs

By on June 15, 2010, 7:30 AM
Discontent with the plethora of solid-state drives it already has on the market, OCZ has pushed out a new enterprise line based on SandForce's SF-1000 family. The Deneva SSD series makes use of the SF-1500 controller and are said to be "the first to deliver Tier-0/1 Enterprise level reliability using a range of lower cost flash technologies including eMLC and MLC in processes as low as 3xnm." The use of MLC NAND is interesting, considering that most enterprise-grade SSDs rely on SLC flash memory.


OCZ says its Deneva drives offer customers a high degree of flexibility because they can be designed to use a variety of interfaces, including SATA, SAS, FC, and PCIe, along with an assortment of form factors and custom firmware. Other enterprise-specific features include emergency power loss protection with supercap, best-in-class endurance, as well as top-notch encryption and ECC protection. Drives in the series have a max read/write of 285MB/s and 275MB/s with 4KB random writes up to 50,000 IOPS.
