OCZ Technology today launched the Deneva 2 and Intrepid Series mSATA SSD lineup for OEMs.
These small form factor drives are designed for a wide range of embedded
applications including slim servers, tablets, dual drive notebooks, and
network security devices.
OCZ mSATA SSDs are small in size with no outer housing, making them an easy
to deploy storage solution.
The mSATA industry-standard design combined with OCZ's firmware support
provides high levels compatibility for simplified system integration, with
proprietary caching software made available to OCZ's OEMs for data
management appliances. OCZ Deneva 2 mSATA SSDs include key enterprise
reliability features such as endurance (e.g., minimal write amplification,
intelligent block management and wear-leveling), and advanced encryption and
ECC. For maximum performance, the Deneva 2 mSATA series offers 6Gbps
throughput rates with up to 80,000 random 4k write IOPS and 550MB/s of
bandwidth. Likewise, the OCZ Intrepid mSATA Series features Indilinx Arowana
Flash Translation Layer with Hyper-Queuing, resulting in increased
sequential write speeds and IOPS. The Intrepid Series also maximizes the
lifespan of low-endurance flash with Indilinx Ndurance Technology with
wear-leveling algorithms for reduced write amplification and advanced over
OCZ is currently sampling the Deneva 2 and Intrepid Series mSATA solid
state drives to OEMs.
