OCZ Technology Group has introduced the RevoDrive 3 and RevoDrive 3 X2 lineup of solid-state drives that incorporate an advanced data management feature-set based on OCZ’s proprietary virtualized controller architecture (VCA) 2.0 technology. The drives are aimed at workstations as well as high-performance PC enthusiast.

The RevoDrive 3-series incorporates a set of features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. According to OCZ, VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.

With its all-new architecture, the RevoDrive 3 (which is powered by SandForce SF-2281 controllers) shatters its predecessor’s performance record and is faster than comparable solutions that are up to ten times the price. Available in two different models, the Revo3 delivers up to 1.5GB/s of bandwidth and up to 230 thousand IOPS (4K random write) under HPC or workstation workloads with a single-card solution. Additionally, the Revo3 X2 960GB offers ample capacity for users in media development and management looking for more storage room.

“OCZ RevoDrive 3 PCIe SSDs use our VCA 2.0 technology to deliver superior performance and functionality for everything from scientific computing to high availability clustering. This exciting new workstation-class storage product accelerates application performance and takes full advantage of today’s multithreaded processors and software, providing customers with greater throughput in an easy-to-deploy, single card solution,” said Daryl Lang, vice president of product management of OCZ Technology.
