OCZ Introduces Octane SATA 6Gbps and Octane-S2 SATA 3Gbps Solid State Drives with up to 1TB Capacity
OCZ Technology today launched the Indilinx Everest-based Octane SATA 3.0 and SATA 2.0 SSD series, striking the ideal balance between capacity, physical size, and speed. In addition to being the world’s first SSD to achieve up to a 1TB capacity in a compact 2.5 inch format, OCZ’s Octane SSD series combines high-speed data transfer rates with record-breaking access times to provide a superior user experience and improved application performance. The Octane series leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform to deliver up to 560MB/s of bandwidth and 45,000 IOPS and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes. The Octane’s proprietary page mapping algorithms allow for steady mixed-workload performance, mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications.
The Octane series also includes a number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency reduction technology, enabling both read and write access times as low as 0.06ms and 0.09ms respectively, the lowest of any commercially available SSD. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as fast boot in consumer applications. Octane SSDs come equipped with Indilinx’s proprietary NDurance technology, increasing the lifespan of the NAND flash memory. Octane series drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data.
