OCZ Technology, a leading supplier of solid-state drives, plans to showcase its next-generation high-end SSDs for consumers at the forthcoming CeBIT trade-show. The new drives will belong to Vertex family and will be based on OCZ's Indilinx latest controllers, which means that they are likely to be considerably faster than predecessors.

OCZ will display the upcoming Vertex 4 SSD Series based on the Indilinx Everest 2 controller. The manufacturer promises the new solid-state drive to deliver "industry-leading performance and superior data management for all file types and sizes". The Everest 2 controllers provides up to 550MB/s sequential read speed, up to 500MB/s sequential write speed and 90 000 random write IOPS [input/output operations per second]. The new controller is fully compatible with 20nm-class NAND flash memory and supports up to 2TB capacities.

It is likely that OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs will be available already this spring or in early summer as the company plans to show them live in early March and because client SSDs do not need qualifications from OEMs, live demo usually means availability in short time frame.

OCZ will also address the growing demand for cloud computing in the enterprise space with the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ PCI Express SSDs with the SANRAD VXL storage accelerator software and its innovative use of flash which transforms VMware and Citrix Xen environments and eliminates the need for costly tier-1 SANs in application virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

When OCZ can actually deliver a fully compatible and reliable SSD, call me. Until then it's just marketing to the sheep.

I bought a few Everest based Octane drives from OCZ because I had issues with Sandforce based drives and so far they work very well. If Everest 2 is as compatible as the first iteration but faster it will be a great alternative to the Sandforce drives.
