Designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), enterprise clients and system integrators, the VeloDrive optimizes high-performance computing and storage applications, providing unparalleled versatility and simplified integration. The VeloDrive can be run in either hardware or software RAID mode and can be deployed in half-height or full-height system requirements. When compared with competing PCIe flash-based solutions, the highly-efficient VeloDrive has a minimal impact on system resources including CPU utilization and the system’s DRAM footprint. Eliminating the SATA/SAS bottleneck, the PCIe-based VeloDrive has the ability to deliver transfer speeds of up to 1GB/s and 130,000 4KB random write IOPS, and features SandForce SF-1565 SSD processors for enhanced reliability and power loss data protection. The VeloDrive utilizes MLC NAND flash and will be available in 300GB, 600GB, and 1.2TB configurations.
More Performance, Less System Resources However you look for best-in-class performance, the VeloDrive delivers. With incredible, well-rounded speed (bandwidth, IOPS, and accesslatency), this drive can help optimize any IT environment without the heavy burden on the CPU and large host memory foot print that plague other PCIe solutions.
Versatile –Hardware or Software RAID The VeloDrive provides unparalleled flexibility with the ability to run either hardware or software RAID stacks depending on your application or unique needs. Increase performance with software RAID or minimize the CPU utilization with hardware RAID. In either case, the VeloDrive offers seamless deployment with this unique configuration option (OCZ does not provide the RAID software).
Incredible Performance and Reliability Driven by four SandForce enterprise SSD controllers (SF-1565), the PCIe-based VeloDrive (600GB) delivers incredible 4KB random write up to 130,000 IOPS under software RAID mode, or up to 75,000 IOPS under hardware RAID mode (Factory-direct configured for hardware RAID with onboard RAID controller). In addition, the highly innovative DuraClass Technology featured in the SF-1500 offers DuraWrite technology (which enables enterprise SSD deployment using MLC/eMLC Flash without sacrificing performance), Intelligent Block Management and Wearing Leveling, Intelligent Recycling, RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) and superior ECC protection, to deliver best-in-class endurance, performance, and security.
