Posted by: STAFF
With its Trion 150 SSD, OCZ takes another stab at a low-cost TLC drive by putting Toshiba's 15-nm NAND under the hood. We tested out this drive to see if it fares better than the Trion 100, OCZ's first TLC SSD.

Seagate Demonstrates Fastest-Ever SSD Flash Drive
     Fri, Mar 18 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate Technology plc today unveiled a production-ready unit of the fastest single solid-state drive (SSD) demonstrated to date, with throughput performance of 10 gigabytes per second (GB/s). The early unit meets Open Compute Project (OCP) specifications, making it ideal for hyperscale data centers looking to adopt the fastest flash technology with the latest and most sustainable standards.

The 10GB/s unit, which is expected to be released this summer, is more than 4GB/s faster than the previous fastest-industry SSD on the market. It also meets the OCP storage specifications being driven by Facebook, which will help reduce the power and cost burdens traditionally associated with operating at this level of performance.

“Your data is only as good as how easily you can access it and put it to use,” said Brett Pemble, Seagate’s general manager and vice president of SSD Products. “Seagate is committed to providing the full spectrum of technologies to help meet the diverse needs of organizations so they can unlock this value. Whether for consumer cloud or business applications, this SSD will help improve on demands for fast access to information, where split seconds drive incremental value gains.”

The technology would work with any system that supports the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocol, which was developed by Seagate and other consortium vendors to replace the legacy Serial AT Attachment (SATA) standards and eliminate informational bottlenecks. NVMe helps reduce layers of commands to create a faster, simpler language between flash devices.

Organizations that would most benefit from this solution include those processing data for object storage or in real-time, where speed matters most for results, such as large-scale cloud providers and web applications, weather modeling, or statistical trends analysis. The unit could be used in an all-flash array or as an accelerated flash tier with hard-disk drives (HDDs) for a more cost-effective hybrid storage alternative.

“Technology advancements continue to stretch the limits of SSD speed and performance due to growing enterprise demands that require fast data processing at scale,” said Gregory Wong, founder and principal analyst, Forward Insights. “Seagate has effectively rewritten the rules for performance with this latest SSD unit. Based on our latest analysis, Seagate is already the leading provider to the emerging PCIe OCP market.”

In addition to the 10GB/s SSD technology, which accommodates 16-lane PCIe slots, Seagate is finalizing a second unit for eight-lane PCIe slots, which still performs at the industry-leading throughput of 6.7GB/s, and is the fastest in the eight-lane card category. The eight-lane solution will provide an alternative for organizations looking for the highest levels of throughput speed but in environments limited by power usage requirements or cost.

Both the 16 and eight-lane SSD units have been made available to Seagate customers and are expected for product launch in summer 2016. They will be on display at the upcoming Open Compute Project Summit 2016 in San Jose, Calif. March 9-10 at Seagate’s booth [#C12].

Zotac Premium Edition SSD Review (480GB)
     Wed, Mar 16 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac has been in the computer industry since 2006 and has made quite the name for itself in the gamer market. Better known for their graphics cards, motherboards, and Mini-PCs, Zotac isn't typically a name one would associate with solid state drives, especially high-performance ones. Last year, however, they expanded their product portfolio with the release of the Zotac Premium Edition SSDs. While their name is anything but exciting, their stats are. Built with Phison's very reputable quad-core S10 controller and Toshiba's A19 MLC NAND flash, the Zotac Premium Edition SSDs promise to deliver great quality and performance, but do they have what it takes to take on the top performing giants? Read on as we find out in today's review.

WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra NAS Review
     Sat, Mar 12 2016 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD launched their My Cloud EX2 dual-bay network-attached storage (NAS) series back in March 2014 and just last month announced that they were updating this popular model by releasing the My Cloud EX2 Ultra, a high-performance, two-bay network attached storage (NAS) system. The original My Cloud EX2 featured a Marvell A370 1.2GHz single-core SoC and 512MB of DDR3 RAM. That was respectable at the time, but prosumers today are looking for more power for multitasking and smooth HD video streaming. WD saw this coming though and upgraded the processor and memory...

With the Q300 Pro series Toshiba has SSDs in their portfolio which offer convincing performance, maxing out the SATA interface.

OCZ Triton 150 480GB SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Storage Solutions, a subsidiary of Toshiba, has a new entry into the burgeoning field of low-cost consumer TLC (triple-level cell) NAND SSDs: the Triton 150. Featuring a new (and somewhat mysterious) Toshiba controller backing up also new Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND, the Triton 150 is aimed squarely at the consumer who’s been waiting for prices on larger SSDs to drop to this level. Historically, drives based on TLC NAND have suffered from significant performance and durability compromises. Benchmark Reviews will run this drive through our gamut of tests to see if these issues are still a factor you should be aware of.
