OCZ intros Z-Drive 6000 NVMe SSDs

OCZ Storage Solutions, which is now owned by Toshiba, has announced the new Z-Drive 6000 SSD line, which combines PCI-E Gen 3 and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) technologies to create an almost universal enterprise SSD, which offers a rich feature set, reliability and endurance.

The inclusion of NVMe means that the new Z-Drive 6000 SSD line offers specific benefits to its users. The SSDs in the line come with streamlined memory interfaces, command sets and a queue design that delivers faster data access and improved storage resilience. This is the place to say that the Z-Drive 6000 SSD line includes three sub-lines – the Z-Drive 6000 SFF Series, the Z-Drive 6300 SFF Series and the Z-Drive 6300 AIC Series.

The Z-Drive 6000 SFF Series is designed for read-intensive applications – the drives in the line come in the popular 2.5-inch form factor and offer capacities of 800 GB, 1.6 TB and 3.2 TB. They reach up to 2900 MB/sec of read speed, up to 1900 MB/sec of write speed, random read performance of up to 700K IOPS and random write performance of up to 160K. The SSDs will be available in Q2 2015.

The Z-Drive 6300 SFF Series is for mixed workloads – the line supports the 2.5-inch form factor and offers capacities of 800 GB, 1.6 TB. 3.2 TB and 6.4 TB. The SSDs here reach up to 2900 MB/sec of read speed, up to 1400 MB/sec of write speed, random read performance of up to 700K IOPS and random write performance of up to 120K IOPS. The 800 GB – 3.2 TB models will arrive this quarter, while the 6.4 TB model will be available later in 2015.

The last Z-Drive 6300 AIC Series is also for mixed workloads but it comes in the Half-Height/Half-Length (HHHL) add-in card form factors and offers capacities of 800 GB, 1.6 TB, 3.2 TB and 6.4 TB. The drives will be available in H2 2015. Unfortunately there’s no data on the performance levels achieved.

The new Z-Drive 6000 SSD line is currently sampled by OCZ partners and customers. There’s no information on how much the SSDs in the line will cost.
