The OCZ Z-Drive R4 Series represents a turning point in the evolution of PCIe attached solid state storage by merging the best feature sets of both the pure hardware and pure software based approaches to data management. Designed and manufactured for a wide range of enterprise environments including cloud computing and data centers, the Z-Drive R4 features OCZ's Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0, providing the utmost in performance, flexibility, durability and enhanced reliability, allowing data centers to rely on a PCIe-based SSD as their primary tier one storage solution for the first time. Additionally, the Z-Drive R4's level of concentrated performance enables system architects to design more productive infrastructures while lowering operating costs associated with hard drive technology.

VCA 2.0 supports the industry standard SCSI command set and, among a litany of other things, provides highly efficient performance aggregation due to OCZ’s exclusive Complex Command Queuing Structure (CCQS), that handles balancing with OCZ's unique Queue Balancing Algorithm, that extends the NAND flash life at a block level, manages redundancy, and is the software interface with the host system.

Z-Drives integrate seamlessly with servers at the system bus and kernel level, creating a new flash memory tier and dramatically increasing throughput and application performance all while slashing capital and operating costs. The OCZ Z-Drive R4 Series is available in half height and full height configurations (full height form factor for CM88 version).

  • newegg The Pinnacle of Storage Performance The OCZ Z-Drive R4 Series CM88 eliminates I/O and bandwidth bottlenecks by delivering up to 2,800 MB/s Max Read/Write and 500,000 IOPS (per SuperScale controller). It delivers the performance of thousands of hard disk drives in a single server.
  • newegg Proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 The OCZ Z-Drive R4 is truly unique, melding hardware and software managed solutions with integrated VCA 2.0. This brings traditional SSD technology into a new realm and enhances performance, deployment capabilities, and endurance. Included are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA 2.0 offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.
  • newegg SuperScale Storage Accelerator Unique to OCZ The OCZ SuperScale storage controller combines processing and full DMA (direct memory access) cores, as well as internal PCIe, SATA and SAS interfaces, facilitating scalable performance in enterprise & datacenter applications. This controller, combined with VCA 2.0 provides unique benefits to users by allowing certain DMA and data management functions including OCZ’s unique command queuing and queue balance algorithms to be handled by the onboard processing core, resulting in higher performance and reduced burden on the host resource.
  • newegg Superior Reliability, Endurance, & Security Features The OCZ Z-Drive R4 Series provides clients with world-class reliability features including superior data fail recovery, intelligent block management & wear-leveling for increased endurance, advanced security with 256-bit AES encryption support, and strong error correction for enhanced data integrity.

HD video playback is substantial. (YouTube)
Music sounds and feels so much more immersive.
Serves as a great boot drive.

Cons: Doesn't overclock very well.
Limited capacity.
Transfer speeds could be better.
Doesn't play Crysis at max settings.

Other Thoughts: This product is HIGHLY recommended for any power user!!
The price is very fair considering most other SSDs cost far more.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: This is the fastest SSD that I have ever had the pleasure of testing. It seems very reliable as stated. It was very easy to install and required very little knowledge. It is the highest capacity drive that I have ever seen. The previous was a 3 TB Hard disk.

Cons: Most people will only get 2.19 TB out of this drive due to operating system and motherboard limitations. It is really expensive. It can only be a bootable hard drive on windows 7 (with GPT)

Other Thoughts: If I hadn't received this for free to test it out, I probably wouldn't have paid for it. This is an enterprise solid state disk for a reason, and I highly doubt normal users would need something. I recommend that this is used with businesses that have a large amount of important data or consumers that just want the best of the best.
