OCZ Technology, a leading provider of solid-state drives, has demonstrated a number of its advanced SSDs for enterprise environments at the Consumer Electronics Show. Among the novelties are new products with record performance and capacities aimed at the most demanding environments.

"CES represents a great opportunity for us to showcase our latest storage technology, and highlight next generation cloud-optimized solid state solutions that address today's enterprise needs," said Ryan Petersen, chief executive officer of OCZ Technology.

Among the most impressive technology showcases by OCZ is Z-Drive R5, which uses the OCZ and Marvell co-developed Kilimanjaro platform for enterprise SSDs. As the world's first PCI Express x16 3.0 solid-state solution, the Z-Drive R5 supports up to 16GB/s of total bandwidth, 2.52 million IOPS and 7.2GB/s sequential transfers per card, with unlimited scalability and performance aggregation capability. OCZ promises that R5 will be available in a range of form-factors this year and will the "2012's most advanced SSD".

At the consumer electronics trade-show OCZ also demonstrated Z-Drive R4 CloudServ RM1616, the world's first 16TB SSD based on a single PCIe card. The solution offers performance of up to 6.5GB/s and over 1.4 million IOPS.

OCZ also shown Chiron, the world's first 3.5" enterprise-class Serial ATA-600 solid-state drive with 4TB capacity. Chiron delivers speeds above 560MB/s and 100,000 IOPS. Eliminating the need for high capacity HDDs as anything other than backup devices, the Chiron-series enables mass SSD storage and is capable of deploying up to 96TB of storage in a 4U rackmount server chassis, according to OCZ.

"Once again we have been able to leverage our increased R&D strength and our understanding of client needs to change the face of solid state storage and deliver innovative new solutions far ahead of our competitors, demonstrating technology leadership across all product categories," added Mr. Petersen.
