OCZ Technology has extended its Deneva 2 Series which now utilizes 19nm NAND flash.
The new models are 2.5-inch, 6Gbps Multi-Level Cell (MLC) drives that implement the Deneva 2 SSD Series feature-set and are built around a smaller NAND flash process geometry. This drive solution also features 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.
The new Deneva 2 SSDs continue to employ the LSI SandForce SF-2281 processor and deliver exceptional performance with 19nm toggle mode NAND flash. The performance specifications support read bandwidth up to 550MBps, write bandwidth up to 520MBps, random read throughput (4K blocks) over 45,000 IOPS, and random write throughput (4K blocks) over 34,000 IOPS.
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. Power consumption has been also lowered in the new models.
The Deneva 2 SSD Series are now available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB.
