2TB SSD Upgradeable...up to1.4gbs


PCI-E Solid State Drives / p88 / 512GB - 2TB / 8 x PCI-E / 8 x SATA / MLC NAND / Customizable Enterprise Solution

The innovative Z-Drive p88 R2 SSD maximizes bandwidth by taking the SATA bottleneck out of the equation and utilizes the speed advantages of the PCI-Express interface. Unlike competing solutions, the Z-Drive family is bootable and with 8 PCI-E lanes and an eight-way RAID 0 configuration, the R2 delivers performance ideal for enterprise applications that are limited by HDD technology. What also makes the R2 especially exceptional is the use of interchangeable modules in the place of permanent, surface-mounted NAND; this unique feature-set is designed to make the Z-Drive field-serviceable and field-upgradeable.

Addressing the emerging performance demands of storage area networks (SANs), workstations, and servers, the Z-Drive p88 R2 creates new possibilities in enterprise data management. The R2 delivers extremely fast transfer rates up to 1.4 GB/s, while offering enhanced reliability and durability compared to mechanical hard drives.

Promoting greater productivity for a broad range of applications spanning across virtualization, caching, and high-end storage, the Z-Drive p88 R2 can also provide cost savings when considering the total cost of ownership (TCO) versus complex and hard to maintain HDD infrastructures. With capacities ranging from 512GB to 2TB, the p88 R2 makes SSDs a viable alternative to large, power-consuming hard drive arrays. Furthermore, OCZ offers customization options for OEM clients that may require tailored hardware or firmware solutions for their business.

Are those SO-DIMMS....or a special non-volitile memory? It would suck to use regular SO-DIMMS with no on-board battery backup. Unplug your computer? BUH-BYE EVERYTHING!

Yeah, maybe they didn't think about that for this ENTERPRISE SOLUTION. :cool: You should email them and tell them of their possible gaffe. :p

I'd imagine that SO-DIMM doesn't imply what kind of memory is contained in its package, rather it simply implies that it is a memory containing package.

Anyone remember that PCI card that took SDRAM sticks that you could use as temporary storage? I think it was called the i-RAM.

This reminds me of that, only a lot more expensive, and probably a lot less sucky.

It uses 5 y/o flash memory technology, Compact Flash/MP3 player consumer grade...
1G x 8Bit / 2G x 8Bit NAND Flash memory (K9L8G08U0M)
6 MBps Seq Write & 302 KBps Random write (4K) per chip. 1.5K Program/Erase Cycles :eek:

No wonder they have to use a massive 8 way RAID 0 array. (lee63)

Sux for that amount of money
