The well-known and successful SSD manufacturer OCZ Technology Group, Inc. has just announced
, toghether with IceWEB Storage Corporation, that OCZ's SAS-based Talos 2 SSDs and SATA III-based Deneva 2 SSDs have been selected by IceWEB for inclusion in IceWEB's complete line of unified data storage systems.
Considering that usually a SSD
offers over fifty times the IO performance of an SAS HDD, while consuming only a fraction of the power typical for a HDD drive, it’s obvious why with IceWEB Storage Corporation is oriented towards the high performance level of the solid state discks.
After testing and evaluating several competitive SSDs on the market, IceWEB selected enterprise-class SAS and SATA-based SSDs from OCZ
Technology Group, Inc. to enable all storage arrays in its unified storage platform with a choice of storage interfaces.
"The inclusion of OCZ SAS and SATA-based enterprise SSDs enables our unified data storage arrays to be used as high-performance primary storage, or as a performance boost for Tier 2 storage, or as a hybrid system that cost-effectively combines HDDs for bulk storage capacity with SSDs for high I/O performance in the same array. With complete data protection and performance optimization through OCZ SSDs, our unified storage systems are a great fit for customers that need high availability, as well as enterprise scalability, robust features, reduced power consumption and cooling, all at competitive prices,"
said Steven Toole, CMO of IceWEB, Inc.
solutions come with DataWrite Assurance so data protection is also supported in case of a power loss, and with several enterprise-critical functions that are not available in OCZ's consumer product lines.
ECC advanced error correction coding is also supported, along with the AES-128/256 encryption support.
OCZ seems to be well on the track of doubling their revenues
again this year.
