OCZ released its new PCI Express solid state drive 2.0, the Z-Drive R4, a product for companies that need the most cutting edge hardware and is the fourth revision of a product that people talked a lot about.
These new drives present the VCA 2.0 OCZ’s interface which is able to develop new levels of bandwidth managing more effectively access to the unit and being compatible with standard SCSI commands in a high performance virtualized environment.
Each Z-Drive unit will be formed of 8 combined SSD controllers, with the PCI Express 2.0 interface with an entry point and multiple additional technologies, like TRIM, security systems and data cipher, or secure data storage systems in case of power interruption.
There are 2 versions of the Z-Drive R4, named “R” and “C”. The difference between both is physical size. The storage capacities are: 800 GB, 1.6 and 3.2 TB.
