OCZ Technology Pushes Out Talos 2 Enterprise SAS 6G SSDs With Up to 1TB Capacities James White December 5, 2011 Press Release When it comes to storage mediums such as hard drives and solid state drives the devices are often built with additional data protection. OCZ Talos 2 Enterprise SAS SSD is no different. It strives to improve performance, reliability (drive and data on drive), and density to enterprise levels by any using all the tech that is often too expensive for general users. Starting with densities ranging from 100 GB to 1000 GB, the Talos 2 covers any range of applications. These will also be available in MLC, SLC NAND, and eMLC with intelligent command queuing algorithms, OCZ Virtualised Controller Architecture, and DataWrite Assurance Protection. Even with all the data integrity and protection the Talos 2 will still maintain up to 70,000 4K IOPS and 42,000 8K IOPS. These drives should be available in OCZ business channels now with prices varying based on density and memory chips. If you need an SSD and failure or data lose is simply not an option, then you should read more below. [hide-this-part morelink=”Full Press Release”] OCZ Technology Launches Talos 2 Enterprise SAS 6G Solid State Drive Series Second Generation Dual-Ported SAS 6G Optimizes Performance and Increases Capacity to 1TB for 2.5 inch Form Factors OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, announces the Talos 2 Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD Series, the follow-up to the high performance, high capacity Talos Series previously available only in a 3.5 inch form factor. With capacities up to 1TB now available in a compact 2.5-inch form factor, Talos 2 offers increased I/O performance and scalability in enterprise storage environments. Talos 2 leverages OCZ Virtualized Controller Architecture™ 2.0 technology which implements an intelligent complex command queuing structure with unique queue balancing algorithms to provide exceptional performance. Talos 2 SSDs deliver superior random transactional performance at up to 70,000 4K IOPS and features improved mixed workload (75% read; 25% write) performance with up to 42,000 8K IOPS. Unlike many SAS SSDs, the Talos Series is dual-ported to offer superior data integrity and increased performance, along with delivering a robust enterprise feature-set including DataWrite Assurance™ Protection in case of sudden power loss. Talos 2 also includes the option to enable T10-DIF (Data Integrity Field), allowing for the insertion of 8 bytes of additional data during transfers to ensure complete data integrity. “The Talos 2 SAS solid state drives expand on the original series by offering enterprise customers superior performance, reliability, and density all in a compact footprint,” said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ technology Group. “The Talos 2 enterprise SSDs are optimized for the most demanding storage systems and provide clients with an easy to deploy solution that vastly improves application performance over traditional SAS based HDDs.” To address the complete spectrum of applications, Talos 2 SSDs are available in 100GB to 1TBcapacities, in MLC, eMLC, and SLC NAND configurations. OCZ is now sampling Talos 2 to strategic customers and the drives will be made available to SMB and enterprise clients through OCZ’s global business-to-business channel.
