The OCZ Talos C Series a line of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSDs designed for enterprise applications that require ultra-fast, high capacity solutions equipped with multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology. Talos SAS SSDs are specifically optimized for enterprise storage applications and deliver superior performance and cost-savings to enterprise clients who require high transactional performance. Talos SAS series drives deliver both speed and high density with up to 30,000 random write IOPS and up to 230GB of storage, making it high capacity 6Gbps SAS solution on the market today.

The Talos SAS interface offers the benefits of interoperability and integration with existing SAS devices, flexibility for traditional storage environments, and the ability to scale greater amounts of drives, providing larger aggregate pools of storage. The drives also deliver exceptional bandwidth and world-class reliability features including superior endurance, encryption, and ECC protection.

Talos SAS drives leverage OCZ’s unique Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) technology which provides customers with robust enterprise features including TRIM (SCSI unmap with SAS drives), SMART monitoring, native command queuing (NCQ), tagged command queuing (TCQ), power fail management, and wear-leveling; all within a single streamlined solution. With Talos and VCA technology, clients can now deploy an SSD solution that delivers superior application performance, all the necessary enterprise features, and substantial power savings, at a better overall total cost of ownership.

  • newegg 3.5 inch, Dual-port SAS 6Gb/s Design With a cost-effective MLC-based design with best-in-class endurance & reliability, the OCZ Talos C Series delivers a premium full duplex, dual-port SAS 6Gb/s storage solution with 3.5” form factor for drop-in deployment. These leading-edge SAS SSDs far surpass the throughput capabilities of even the most advanced enterprise hard drives, making them ideal for applications that benefit from increased 4K, 8K, and 16K sustained IOPS.
  • newegg Mixed-Workload Power House Talos SAS SSDs deliver excellent mixed-workload performance (75%R; 25%W) with up to 50,000 sustained IOPS with incompressible 4K files sizes, and 34,000 sustained IOPS with incompressible 8K files. As a result, Talos is the ideal full duplex SAS solution for applications that may benefit from increased 8K and 16K sustained IOPS, including databases which use a default block size of 8K, or increased incompressible performance such as the growing need of datacenters to provide fast access to compressed video and audio files.
  • newegg Proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 Featuring intelligent complex command queuing structure with unique queue balancing, OCZ’s VCA 2.0 optimizes Talos SAS SSDs for enterprise environments and mixed-workloads ensuring excellent overall performance. VCA also offers robust enterprise features including TRIM (SCSI unmap with SAS drives), SMART monitoring, native command queuing (NCQ), tagged command queuing (TCQ), power fail management, and wear-leveling.
  • newegg Reliable, Longer-Lasting, and Secure The OCZ Talos SAS SSDs provide clients with world-class reliability features including superior data fail recovery, maximized product lifespan with write amplification as low as 0.3, intelligent block management & wear-leveling for increased endurance, advanced security with 128-bit AES encryption support, and strong error correction for enhanced data integrity.
