OCZ Technology Group plans to showcase a number of brand-new solid-state storage solutions at the upcoming Computex Taipei 2011 trade-show in early June. One of the leading makers of solid-state drives (SSDs) intends to demonstrate its first hybrid storage device that combines hard disk drive (HDD) with NAND flash memory.

 

"Computex Taipei is the ideal venue to unveil our next generation SSD solutions for HPC and enterprise clients. This year we are pushing the envelope once again, showcasing the newest Serial ATA-600 Indilinx controller, the next generation best-of-breed MLC based enterprise PCIe drives, and innovative hybrid SSDs and caching solutions," said Alex Mei, chief markering officer of OCZ Technology.

At present the details about the hybrid storage solution are rather scarce. What is known is that OCZ will demonstrate the first hybrid HDD/SSD from the RevoDrive family with PCI Express Interface, which utilizes a large high speed NAND flash cache coupled with high density rotational media, to deliver maximized performance to density ratios for workstation usage.

Highlights at the OCZ product showcase include the all-new VCA enabled, Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD line, capable of up to 2.7GB/s and 330 thousand 4KB random write IOPS. This PCIe based enterprise solution enables maximum performance in datacenters and delivers the highest 4K random write performance of any SSD available today, according to OCZ. It supports a host of enterprise features and enables use of the newest low cost Sync Mode 20nm-class NAND flash technology.

The RevoDrive 3, a next generation bootable PCI-Express SSD, designed for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations, will also be on display. Leveraging proprietary VCA technology the RevoDrive 3 can accommodate a wide range of applications including multi-media creation and management applications.
