As popular as it has become in enthusiast-class solid-state drives, SandForce's SF-1000 family has a clear enterprise pedigree. OCZ has now introduced a line of SSDs that puts the SF-1500 to its rightful use: the Deneva series.
OCZ says Deneva drives are also "the first to deliver Tier-0/1 Enterprise level reliability, using a range of lower cost flash technologies including eMLC and MLC in processes as low as 3xnm." SSDs for heavy-duty business applications often have single-level-cell flash memory, which has greater durability but also higher costs compared to the multi-level-cell variety.
OCZ goes on to note that Deneva SSDs have several features typically absent from mainstream drives, including "emergency power loss protection with a supercap, best-in-class endurance, and superior encryption and ECC protection." On the performance side of things, Deneva offerings can purportedly hit 285MB/s when reading, 275MB/s when writing, and 50,000 IOPS during 4KB random writes.
The OCZ Enterprise website lists several Deneva offerings, all with 2.5" form factors and 300MB/s Serial ATA interfaces. However, the company's announcement mentions a number of additonal form factor and interface options, including Serial Attached SCSI, Fibre Channel, and PCI Express. "Customized Firmware" is also on the menu.
