OCZ Technology today launched the SandForce-based Deneva 2 SSD line for enterprise the market.
The new SSDs are taking advantage of the SATA 6Gb/s interface and have been designed for a wide range of enterprise applications including servers, cloud computing, and data centers.
Deneva 2 features several enterprise-critical options not available in OCZ's consumer product lines, including power loss data protection, endurance (e.g., minimal write amplification, intelligent block management and wear-leveling), and advanced encryption and ECC.
"Deneva 2 SSDs are optimized for high-volume storage applications, offer industry-leading reliability, and leverage the latest NAND and controller technology to deliver superior performance. This combination means that enterprises can overcome previous roadblocks, and use their data in real-time," said Ryan Petersen, CEO at OCZ Technology Group.
Deneva 2 SSDs are based on SandForce SF-2000 SSD processors and deliver up to 80,000 4KB random write IOPS and 550MB/s of potential bandwidth. In addition, the series includes enterprise-grade multi-level cell (eMLC) NAND flash technology, which offers improved endurance for write-intensive applications. Deneva 2 SSDs can also be customized, come in a wide variety of interface options including PCIe, and are available in 2.5, 3.5, and 1.8 inch form factors for use in very high density computing environments, including blade servers.
