The performance of current magnet hard drives particularly reaches its limits in the server sector. Therefore OCZ offers its own SSD Flash based storage device for the PCI-Express 4x slot.
OCZ's Z-Drive will offer a raid controller and 256 MiByte cache. The storage drive will be available with 250, 500 and 1,000 GiByte. In comparison to other similar solutions prices are said to be very moderate.
As usual with SSD Flash memories the Z-Drive will offer very fast response times. Depending on the version the Z-Drive will offer a write speed between 300 and 480 MiByte/s and a read rate between 450 and 510 MiByte per second.
