OCZ Z-Drive R4 PCI Express SSD Performance Preview

Today, OCZ is letting fly with the second coming of a VCA 2.0 product, this time squarely targeting the enterprise, datacenter and high-end workstation markets. Where OCZ's RevoDrive line targets more consumer-like price points, their Z-Drive line is about no holds barred performance for the enterprise. The Z-Drive R4 with VCA 2.0, the same SuperScale Storage Accelerator, and now an octet of SandForce SF-2200 controllers, has landed on our testbeds for a few cycles of the benchmark gauntlet. And oh yeah, it's packing a full 1.6TB (that's Terabytes) of usable capacity on board. As the old saying goes, let the games begin!

Yep this looks like a crazy card, you have to pay to play! I wonder if they will start to package these cards with single slot custom coolers/fans in the future.

@Inspector - We would LOVE to give away a stack of these things. Not sure we could get OCZ to sponsor them though. :)

I wonder how much it's going to cost when it released; I have my bets down on "a really, really lot."

These with IBM's multi level cpus that they are working on would be instant or near instant computing?

If I was rich, I'd buy 2 and put them in RAID 0. Or maybe RAID 10 to be safe. :)
