Dramatically Accelerating Enterprise Applications

The MLC-based Z-Drive 4500 Series, based on Toshiba’s 19nm (nanometer) NAND, is an extension to OCZ’s popular Z-Drive R4 SSD Series. The series features a more robust architecture over its predecessor and supports 800GB, 1.6TB and 3.2TB usable capacities backed by a 5-year warranty. Utilizing OCZ’s proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) Technology, the new Z-Drive 4500 Series delivers industry-leading sustained performance for MLC-based PCIe edge cards so that users achieve fast file transfers, boot-ups and benefit from a more responsive storage experience.

Z-Drive 4500 Features

- Leading MLC-based enterprise PCIe edge card performance driven by OCZ VCA Technology

- Integrates with powerful OCZ software solutions supporting Windows application acceleration (through OCZ WXL Software) and flash virtualization (through OCZ VXL Software)

- Features a more robust design over previous Z-Drive R4 models

- Designed in a Full-Height/Half-Length (FH/HL) format supporting 800GB, 1.6TB and 3.2TB usable capacities

- Bootable as a direct-attached device

- Delivers temperature sensing and thermal throttling to maintain consistent operating conditions even under adverse temperature variances

- Provides complete power loss data protection, end-to-end data protection, advanced ECC and other capabilities that extend drive life and protect data

- New SSD casing for a more stable and cooler thermal environment

- Installation drivers support package files (RPM, DEB) that automate the deployment process

- Backed by a 5-year warranty

Proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture™ (VCA) 2.0

- Provides a multifaceted virtualization layer that interfaces with the host system

- Delivers highly efficient performance aggregation

- Extends NAND flash life at a block level

- Manages redundancy

- Enables TRIM Command support and SMART health monitoring

- Features internal storage controller delivering highly efficient performance aggregation while reducing the burden on host resources

Superior Enterprise-Class Endurance & Reliability

- Power loss data protection prevents data loss in the event of a sudden power failure

- End-to-end data protection performs data integrity checks at every juncture where data is transmitted, received, processed and stored

- Advanced ECC effectively corrects up to 55 bits per 512-byte sector

- Advanced security with 128-bit AES encryption support

- Temperature sensing and thermal throttling maintains consistent operating conditions even under adverse temperature variances

WXL Windows Accelerator Software Integrated

- Z-Drive 4500 is integrated with OCZ’s new Windows Accelerator (WXL) Software – a flash management and caching solution for Windows Server-based applications

- Enables efficient use of the Z-Drive 4500 as a flash volume, a flash cache, or both concurrently

- Performs statistical ‘out-of-band’ processing to selectively determine what data to cache for I/O acceleration while avoiding processing in the data path itself

- Includes advanced cache warm-up and analysis scheduler for optimal flash usage

- Improves performance and latency on SAN and DAS systems making them more available for other applications
