We are still a few days away from CES 2012, but the eleventh annual Storage Visions Conference is well underway. We were able to take a look at some unreleased products from Intel, Crucial, OCZ and ioSafe that are worth a look if you are interested in storage. The next generation of SSDs promise more performance with additional focus on reliability. Read on to see what the highlights of the show were for us.
OCZ and Marvell have teamed up and are showing off the Z-Drive R5 for the very first time at Storage Visions. The OCZ Z-Drive R5 is the industries fastest PCI Express (PCIe) storage device. The reason that Z-Drive R5 features a jointly developed "Kilimanjaro" OCZ and Marvell native PCIe to NAND flash controller platform, allowing for completely scalable performance and redundancy while eliminating the need for a separate storage controller, thus reducing the cost to deploy high performance solid state storage systems in the data center. It uses a PCI-Express Gen3 x8 slot to get up to 1.6M IOPS!
