variety of sources - including its own designs. The info on this page shows only
an outline of the company's 2.5" SAS SSDs. OCZ's web site can be

Talos C Series - 2.5" SAS
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.
A 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.
In the past 2 years OCZ has acquired and integrated enterprise related software and interface IP from several companies. (For details see the SSD acquisitions page on StorageSearch.com.) The result is an industry leading capability from OCZ which is branded under various product names such as VXL. For more info see OCZ's software overview page.
