new storage frontier
||Editor:- OCZ offers several different types of
SATA SSDs which have been optimized for different applications within enterprise
At the high end of the range (in Q3 2014) is the
Intrepid 3000 -
rated at upto about 90K / 38K
random R/W IOPS
(4KB). This family uses Marvell
88SS9187 controllers with OCZ enterprise firmware.
There are 2
different models which use different grades of 19nm flash memory and offer
different endurance characteristics.
- the Intrepid 3600 uses MLC and is rated at 1
DWPD for 5 years.
differences between these 2 memory differentiated models is clarified
- the Intrepid 3800 uses eMLC and is rated at 4
DWPD for 5 years.
OCZ's blog -
consistency of performance in the Intrepid 3000 - OCZ says the new drive is
5x faster for 4K incompressible random writes and upto 2x faster
for reads than its previous generation high speed SATA SSD - the Deneva 2.
says the Intrepid SSD offers a 12x improvement in latency with lower jitter
OCZ segments its enterprise SATA SSD offering another step
further - with respect to DWPD - with yet another model - the
1000 - which is cost optimized for read intensive workloads in hyperscale,
web-hosting and cloud computing environments.
|OCZ does that 3rd
generation SSD firmware cloud thing (but gives it a better name)|
|Editor:- October 16, 2015 - It's no longer just
the newcomers to the enterprise SSD market who are doing that 3rd generation /
co-operative (whatever you want to call it) SSD controller firmware and host
stack collaboration thing. |
OCZ this week announced
they're doing it too.
It's available in the
Saber 1000 (2.5"
cloud oriented, read mostly SSDs). And they've got a better name for it too - "Host
Managed SSD Technology".
"Our new Saber HMS SSD, together
with a software library and API, enable for the first time (in OCZ's product
line) software orchestration of internal housekeeping tasks across large pools
of SSDs, thus overcoming performance barriers that were simply not possible to
address without this technology" said Oded Ilan, GM of OCZ's R&D
Team in Israel.
"With HMS APIs, a host can coordinate garbage
collection, log dumps, and drive geometry data" (and graphics too) in
OCZ's HMS product
|OCZ's new 2TB SATA SSD|
|Editor:- March 25, 2015 - OCZ today launched a
higher capacity version of its fast enough enterprise 2.5" SATA SSD
family. The new
3700 SSD - has 2TB capacity, R/W speeds upto 540MB/s and 470MB/s
(128KB blocks) and 91K / 13K random
(4KB blocks) .
The graph above shows the improvement in latency and access time
jitter in OCZ's Intrepid 3000 - compared to its previous generation product -
the Deneva 2 - which was aimed at the same market.
how fast can your
SSD run backwards?
