OCZ & Marvell to Debut Next Gen PCIe Z-Drive R5 Solid State Solution
OCZ Technology and Marvell unveils the Z-Drive R5.
Designed to take PCIe-based solid state storage to the next level for enterprise environments, the Z-Drive R5 features a jointly developed "Kilimanjaro" OCZ and Marvell native PCIe to NAND flash controller system. This allows for entirely scalable performance and redundancy while eliminating the need for a separate storage controller, thereby reducing costs to deploy high performance solid state storage systems in the data center.
Combining high-performance architecture with OCZ managed software, the Z-Drive R5 enables datacenters to rely on a PCIe-based SSD as their primary Tier 0/1 storage solution and a viable end-to-end SAN replacement.
The Z-Drive R5 will be showcased at the 2012 CES in the Marvell booth (No. 30542) located in the South Hall 3 on the upper level.
