OCZ Technology Group, a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today introduced the Vertex 4 SATA III SSD series featuring the company’s advanced Indilinx Everest 2 controller platform. The Vertex 4 delivers the industry’s highest input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance for SATA-based drives across a wide variety of application workloads making this fourth generation flagship product-line ideally suited for demanding computing and workstation environments. It consistently accomplishes superior real world performance over the long term, regardless of whether the data streams are in compressed or uncompressed formats. The Vertex 4 SSD will be available through OCZ’s Indian channel partners in 128GB/256GB/512GB capacities. OCZ Vertex4 128GB SSD is priced at an MOP of INR 14,900.
Their new series, now in India
The Vertex 4 features sequential bandwidth up to 535 MB/s, maximum random performance up to 120,000 IOPS. In comparison to OCZ’s previous generation Vertex 3 SSD, rated at 60,000 sustained 4K random write IOPS; the Vertex 4 doubles typical transactional performance. The Vertex 4 also generates best in class latency, as low as 0.04ms for read operations and 0.02ms for write operations, delivering an improvement of approximately 80 percent over the Vertex 3. Powered by its new Indilinx Everest 2 controller platform, featuring a dual core architecture and 400MHz clock speeds, the Vertex 4 eliminates the need for internal data compression, further enhancing drive reliability. This advanced controller architecture also includes key features, such as an advanced error correction code (ECC) engine, dynamic wear-levelling, auto encryption, and Indilinx’s next generation Ndurance 2.0 NAND flash management technology, enabling OCZ to support the Vertex 4 SSD line with a 5-year warranty.
Ndurance 2.0, embedded within the Everest 2 platform overcomes NAND flash memory shortcomings to extend NAND flash life well beyond the manufacturer rated program and erase cycle specifications. It ensures that the Vertex 4 can be reliably used in a wide range of computing environments over an extended lifetime. This advanced NAND flash management suite not only radically extends NAND flash memory life, but provides enterprise-class endurance even when commodity-grade NAND flash is used.
