OCZ Launches Intrepid 3000 Solid State Drives
OCZ has announced a new series of solid state drives targeted at enterprise users, the Intrepid 3000 Series. The new drives use the SATA 3 standard and are able to achieve read and write speeds up to 520MB/s and 470MB/s, respectively. The drives will also be able to handle 91,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for random reads and 40,000 IOPS for random writes, up to five times faster performance than previous enterprise offerings from the company. Senior VP of Product Management Daryl Lang said, "Our new Intrepid 3000 Series leverages in-house firmware with an impressive enterprise feature-set to enable customers with unprecedented performance, data management, endurance and reliability, and cost flexibility resulting in an optimal storage environment." A number of reliability and data integrity features are also included in the drives including multi-level BCH error correction coding, 256-bit AES encryption, and end-to-end data path protection. With capacities up to 800GB available, the Intrepid 3000 Series is also the highest capacity SATA 3 enterprise offering from OCZ to date. The drives are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014.
