The info on this page shows only an outline of the
company's 2.5" SAS SSDs. OCZ's web site can be confusing because of the
way that consumer and enterprise SSDs are mixed up in some of the same overview
pages. A useful starting point for navigation is
OCZ's enterprise SSD page.

A note on
terminology:- many other publications blab on about "enterprise SAS SSDs".
In fact all SAS SSDs (in the current state of the SSD market) are enterprise
SSDs. So the prefix "enterprise" - in front of SAS - is a tautology.
note on SSD software:-
the apps performance which you can leverage from SSDs nowadays is no longer
simply dependent on the internal characteristics of the SSD. You can get very
useful leverage and flexibility by also looking at what virtualization and
caching support is also available.
OCZ has a strong offering in the
software space which has been optimized over many years to suit the needs of
small to medium size installations. For details see
software acceleration page.
