OCZ Technology Group, a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs), has announced the latest addition to the popular Deneva 2 series which now utilizes NAND flash memory produced using 19nm process technology. With a priority on reliability and flash-optimized enterprise endurance, the new Deneva 2 includes advanced features such as data fail recovery, intelligent block management, wear leveling and robust error correction
The new Deneva 2 SSDs continue to utilize the proven LSI SandForce SF-2281 processor and delivers high performance with 19nm toggle mode NAND flash. The performance specifications support read bandwidth up to 550MB/s, write bandwidth up to 520MB/s, random read throughput (4K blocks) over 45000 input/output operations per second (IOPS), and random write throughput (4K blocks) over 34000 IOPS. The new models come in industry-standard 2.5” form-factor with Serial ATA-6Gb/s interface.
It provides consistent sustained performance over time so that users can achieve faster file transfers, boot-ups and benefit from a more responsive storage experience. With a priority on reliability and flash-optimized enterprise endurance, the new Deneva 2 includes advanced features such as data fail recovery, intelligent block management, wear leveling and robust error correction. Additionally, power consumption has also been lowered in the new models as well. This Deneva 2 drives also feature a completely new power architecture that was designed from the ground up to optimize server back plane functionality, providing enhanced management of in-rush current and power fluctuation. The result is an advanced SSD series that delivers superior storage performance, enterprise-class endurance, reliability and quality, and excellent total cost of ownership for customers.
“Our Deneva 2 has been a popular SSD series among IT professionals not only as an HDD replacement but to dramatically accelerate I/O access of such popular enterprise applications as OnLine Transaction Processing, database warehousing, read intensive data caching and server boot-ups. By implementing new features and the latest NAND flash process geometry we are able to deliver an optimal balance of I/O performance and cost-efficiency to our customers,” said Daryl Lang, senior vice president of product management for OCZ Technology.
The new Deneva 2 SSD series are now available in three models supporting 120GB capacity (D2CSTK251M3T-0120), 240GB capacity (D2CSTK251M3T-0240) and 480GB capacity (D2CSTK251M3T-0480).
