OCZ Intros Deneva 2, Intrepid mSATA Enterprise SSDs

By - Source: OCZ Technology PR | B 11 comments

To expand on its enterprise storage solutions, OCZ has introduced two mSATA SSDs; Deneva 2 and Intrepid Series, for OEM clients.

The Deneva 2 and Intrepid are designed for slim servers, tablets, dual drive notebooks, and network security devices. The Deneva 2 mSATA series utlilizes MLC NAND Flash memory, a SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface and offers throughput rates with up to 80,000 random 4k write IOPS and 550MB/s of bandwidth. The mSATA has a MTBF (mean time before failure) of 2 million hours, supports TRIM and has a 3-Year Warranty with Dedicated FAE/FSE support (includes PM/engineer support through validation cycle).

The OCZ Intrepid mSATA Series features Indilinx Arowana Flash Translation Layer with Hyper-Queuing, resulting in increased sequential write speeds and IOPS. The Intrepid Series utilizes Indilinx Ndurance Technology for reduced write amplification and advanced over provisioning.

"OCZ Deneva 2 and Intrepid mSATA solid state drives provide OEMs with the flexibility to address storage and caching requirements within innovative form factors, including embedded and dual-drive devices and blade servers," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. "These new SSDs are available in a wide range of capacities and configurations to deliver exceptional scalability, performance, and endurance, all with a compact and energy efficient design."

    Looks good. Perhaps we'll see 120GB mSATA SSDs in the 150-dollar range now, and a bit faster than Intel's mSATA X25 implementation.

    OK. What we next is a single PCIe x8 card with 8 SATA controllers that can have up to 8 mSATA cards attached to it and run RAID 0, 10, or 5 (hardware 5, not software) for high performance configurations, for less than $600.

    After that, we need a laptop with 4-6 mSATA slots capable of running RAID 0 or 10 for high performance laptops.

    OCZ for the enterprise? The whole IT department will be filling out rebates, fighting tooth and nail to get their rebates.

    I've had the Vertex 3 MI for about two months now with no issues to report. Are there any issues that I should be aware of?

    I ordered 16 Deneva 2 drives, 12 480GB and 4 240GB, over $17K. After this experience, there is no way I'd spen another cent with this company. We've taken a risk and bought, instead, Crucial M4 drives, which so far are working without a hitch. Here is the OCZ debacle:

    Because of SMART data issues, out of the box, we've ever only been able to use 8 of the 480GB drives (that's over $4,800 we spent that we've not been abl; it's a constant parade of switching out the four *reserve* drives with the 'new' drives that blink with predictive failure. This has been going on since Mid-August. They sent me 'fixes' that do not work - it just turned the amber blinking light to solid green, they have come by to drop of exchanges (4 for 4) and leave me with a bootable USB with the new *fix* on it, but the USB wasn't bootable and I have no way of repairing the 4- 240's and the 2- 480's that still report the issue.

    This has been one big cluster-f**k since day one, and only after figuring out a higher level execs email address and including him on an email did the company start to pick up it's game in dealing with this issue.

    If you value your time, do not ever consider using these drives. Find an alternative
