OCZ Technology today launched the Indilinx Everest-based Octane SATA 3.0 and SATA 2.0 SSD series. In addition to being the world's first SSD to achieve up to a 1TB capacity in a compact 2.5 inch format, OCZ's Octane SSD series combines high-speed data transfer rates with record-breaking access times to provide a superior user experience and improved application performance.

"OCZ has reached an important milestone in the development of its own controller technology," said James E. Bagley, Senior Analyst with Storage Strategies NOW. "The high sustained performance, even with compressed files, the rapid boot feature and high access speeds using SATA 3.0 protocol puts their controller technology in the major league."

"Until now SSDs have been tailored for specific applications, forcing users into a product which maximizes performance for a narrow band of applications, but is significantly lacking in others," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology. "The Octane Series solves this problem by providing the highest level of performance across varied workloads including mixed file sizes and mixed compressible and uncompressible data, all while nearly doubling NAND flash endurance."

The OCZ Octane series leverages the Indilinx Everest platform to deliver up to 560MB/s of bandwidth and 45,000 IOPS and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes. In particular, the Octane's proprietary page mapping algorithms allow for steady mixed-workload performance, mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications. The Octane series also includes a number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency reduction technology, enabling both read and write access times as low as 0.06ms and 0.09ms respectively, the lowest of any commercially available SSD. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast boot" in consumer applications.

OCZ Octane SSD features:

- Dual Core CPU

- Up to 512MB DRAM cache

- 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB models

- High sequential speeds:

Octane (SATA 3.0) Read: 560MB/s; Write: 400MB/s

Octane-S2 (SATA 2.0) Read: 275MB/s; Write:265MB/s

- High transactional performance - Optimized for 4K to 16K compressed files

Octane (SATA 3.0) 45,000 random read 4K IOPS

Octane-S2 (SATA 2.0) 30,000 random read 4K IOPS

- Industry-low latency:

Read: 0.06ms; Write: 0.09ms

-Strong performance at low queue depths (QD 1 --3)

- Up to 8 channels with up to 16-way Interleaving

- Advanced BCH ECC engine enabling more than 70  bits correction capability per 1KB of data

- Proprietary NDurance(TM) Technology: increases NAND life up to 2X of the rated P/E cycles

- Efficient NAND Flash management: Dynamic and static wear-leveling, and background garbage collection

- Boot time reduction optimizations

- NCQ support up to 32 queue depth

- End-to-end data protection

- TRIM support

- Industry standard SMART reporting

Octane SSDs also come equipped with Indilinx's proprietary 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. In addition, Octane series drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data. 

The OCZ Octane SSD Series will be available November 1st in models ranging from 128GB-1TB capacities throughout OCZ's global channel.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
