OCZ Technology Group has  announced the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ PCI Express (PCIe) flash storage solution designed to accelerate cloud computing applications and significantly reduce operating expenses in the data center. The new Z-Drive R4 CloudServ features monumental data throughput, and raises the bar in performance and capacity.

The Z-Drive R4 CloudServ PCIe SSD will be available in models with 800GB, 1.60TB, 3.20TB, 6.4TB or even 16TB capacities throughout OCZ's global channel in the coming weeks. The Z-Drive R4, the CloudServ,is specifically designed for demanding cloud computing applications with increased capacities and greater bandwidth capabilities delivering up to 1.4 million IOPS. Melding hardware and software managed solutions with OCZ’s integrated Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 and OCZ’s Sanrad VXL virtual acceleration caching software, the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ can be employed as a high-performing host-based flash cache that works in conjunction with the VXL to dynamically allocate flash resources to accelerate all virtual machines.

“The Z-Drive R4 CloudServ PCIe solid state drive delivers game-changing performance and enables clients to process massive data-sets with up to 16TB of storage capacity on a single, easy-to-deploy card. With this new solution, system architects are able to design more efficient and dynamic cloud computing infrastructures while simultaneously reducing system complexity and the high maintenance costs associated with traditional infrastructures,” said Ryan Petersen, chief executive officer of OCZ Technology.

With increasing emphasis on cloud computing and the sheer growth in data, PCIe-based flash storage systems have the ability to bypass traditional storage overhead by reducing latencies, increasing throughput, and enabling efficient processing of massive quantities of data, according to OCZ. The Z-Drive R4 CloudServ is capable of transferring up to 6000MB/s and delivering over a million IOPS with a level of concentrated performance that enables system architects to design more productive infrastructures while lowering costs associated with hardware failure, maintenance, structural footprint, and energy consumption.

As with all OCZ enterprise products, customer-specific configurations and functionality are available upon request.
