Combining fast data transfer rates with instantaneous access times, OCZ Octane S2 SSDs are designed to provide improved application performance for SATA 3Gbps systems. Octane S2 leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, with exclusive page mapping algorithms mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications. The Octane S2 also includes advanced features unique to Indilinx, including latency reduction technology to enhance system responsiveness and enable instant-on boot-ups. In addition, Octane drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data, bringing unique enterprise features within the reach of enthusiasts.
Octane SSDs also deliver the energy efficiency, durability, and reliability that traditional hard drives cannot provide, a perfect choice for performance users and first-time SSD upgraders.
High performance SSD architecture The Octane series leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform, which combines a dual-core CPU, SATA 3Gbps interface, and support for the latest, most advanced NAND flash memory technology available. The Octane's proprietary page mapping algorithms ensure superior performance across all file sizes and mixed workloads. The Octane series also includes a number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency reduction technology, enabling low access times for both read and write operation. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast boot" in consumer applications.
Enhanced performance and endurance over the long term Octane SSDs come equipped with Indilinx's exclusive NDurance technology, increasing the lifespan of the NAND flash memory, ensuring the most consistent and reliable performance as well as minimizing performance degradation even after the drive's storage capacity is highly utilized. Efficient NAND Flash management including dynamic and static wear-leveling, and background garbage collection ensures close to ‘fresh-out-of-the-box’ performance even after continual use. In addition, Octane series drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data.
TRIM Support The OCZ Octane Series SSDs offer native TRIM support that can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
