Message Text: OCZ Technology has released a refresh of the Talos Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) 6Gb/s SSDs with OCZ's proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0.

OCZ's Talos with VCA 2.0 technology provides an enterprise feature-set while substantially increasing mixed workload performance. Talos now utilizes VCA 2.0's command queuing and queue balance algorithms to address the demands of today's I/O intensive enterprise applications, which require high levels of sustained IOPS and bandwidth, across file sizes and read/write ratios. While traditional SAS SSDs can only perform one read or write at a time, OCZ Talos drives with VCA 2.0, can read and write simultaneously, substantially increasing performance.

"With superior mixed-workload performance Talos SSDs provide clients with increased throughput and flexibility to address their most demanding enterprise storage applications," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group.

Talos SAS SSDs promise to deliver high mixed-workload performance with up to 66,000 IOPS (burst) and 50,000 sustained read/write IOPS with incompressible 4K files sizes, and 34,000 sustained mixed read/write IOPS with incompressible 8K files. As a result, Talos can be used as a full duplex SAS solution for applications that may benefit from increased 8K and 16K sustained IOPS, including databases which use a default block size of 8K, or increased incompressible performance such as the growing need of datacenters to provide fast access to compressed video and audio files.

Additionally, Talos' SAS 6Gb/s interface enables easy deployment with existing devices and appliances and the drives themselves provide reliability features including superior power loss protection, endurance, encryption, and ECC protection.

The refreshed Talos Series with VCA 2.0 is now available for OCZ's customers in capacities up to 960GB, and the drives will be made available to SMB and enterprise clients through OCZ's business-to-business channel.

In related news, OCZ will host a conference call on Tuesday, August 2 at 5:00pm ET (2:00pm PT). Ryan Petersen, CEO, will provide an overview of the market for PCIe based SSDs as well as unveil the company's newest enterprise-class PCIe storage solution, the Z-Drive R4.
