OCZ have announced the release of their new RevoDrive Hybrid PCI Express (PCIe) storage solution a combination of SSD and HDD technology powered and connected via a PCIe slot.
The drive comes bundled with Dataplex caching software which dynamically manages the 100GB SSD with the 1TB HDD for superior storage performance, this combination prioritises data into “hot” frequently used data which will utilise the SSD’s faster operating speeds and “cold” data which remains on the higher storage capacity HDD.
The device uses advanced caching algorithms to learn and optimise storage policies increasing overall performance for each user, it also eliminates the SATA bottleneck “unleashing ground-breaking bandwidth up to 910MB/s”, offering up to 120,000 IOPS (4K random write) for high transactional workloads brining SSD level performance, the drive also incorporates the added features of OCZ’s proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0.
The RevoDrive Hybrid leverages the best attributes of both solid state drives and traditional hard drive technology to deliver dynamic data-tiering on a single easy to deploy PCIe storage drive,” said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. “Leveraging Dataplex software to efficiently manage frequently accessed data delivers superior performance and capacity, making the RevoDrive Hybrid the ideal solution for high performance computing and media content creation.
The OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid 1TB comes with a three-year warranty and will be available worldwide for an MSRP of $499.99.
