    After dedicating a big chunk of its resources to the SSD market, OCZ's R&D became a fertile ground for new SSD solutions. The company put up its latest high performance, high capacity SSD for enterprises at CeBIT, the IBIS XL. This monstrosity supports OCZ's very own HSDL interface, and comes in the 5.25-inch form-factor (about the size of a PC optical drive). It offers a humongous 4 terabyte of storage, higher than even the highest PC hard drive in the market, which offers 3 TB. IBIS XL offers transfer rates of 1800 MB/s read, 1700 MB/s write, and up to 200,000 IOPS 4K random write performance.

    There's no way I'd put something that ugly in one of my front bays. Though if you can afford it I'm sure you could also afford a custom faceplate.

    I'm pretty sure this thing also costs about the same as Bugatti Veyron...

    This is pretty great news though! Other manufacturers now probably want to compete with this SSD meaning that they will put more resources in producing higher capacity SSD's, which will eventually result into cheaper SSD's for consumers :)

    I can see this disk being used by buisnesses that have to process petabytes of storage(Blizzar,google etc)

    Bugatti are some ugly cars.

    This SSD looks like a DVD drive with a vent instead of a tray. As this is a enterprise product, it will land in a server somewhere. Do enterprise servers have a lot of 5.25 bays?

    But the engine is SO sexy!

    What is the speed of DDR anyways? PC2100 or something? It's faster! Don't forget SSDs degrade over time when TRIM starts kicking in. Mine went from 620MB/s to 408MB/s in a week. =( DDR will stay fast forever! (as long as the backup batteries hold out)

    this is aimed at servers. no need for a RAID array with this beast. one of these could probably handle all of TPU's load without breaking a sweat.

    Well, in the article it says for enterprise. Anytime a product is marketed for enterprise, it's for large businesses who wipe their arses with fistfuls of hundred dollar bills.

    As for running all of TPUs content off this ... OCZ is known to put out beta products, and let the users do the testing. While charging them for fully functional product.
    Don't know if I'd trust these for anything important.

    Nice. Though with it being a drive + HBA... I'd rather just have PCIe SSDs.


    If you all like this drive that much. Hold on to your butts.

    ioDrive Octal: 5.12TB, 6GB/s read, 4GB/s write. Double-height PCIe 2.0 x16.

    Don't send anything less than your all female personal army for it!

    no way. ddr3200 ocd to 466mhz (2.5-3-3-6) in dual channel on athlon64 churned out over 7000mb/s read. and the latency was ridiculously small... damn i miss it. :cry:

    So, who is stocking them so that I place an order for a couple or so? :laugh:

    Kidding apart, one day they'll become affordable. One day...

    Yeah, but the Octal is over $300,000 USD. If you're gonna spend that kinda scratch, get the 2.56TB SLC version that does 6gb/s read and write.

    I need the space. < Most serious comment in this thread ;)

    If I moved over everything on my box now to the 2.56TB model, only have around 80GB of free space. That's not counting drives I have in other machines where I move overflow to.

    Long way brother.

    The DDR1 @ 100MHz has a peak transfer rate of 1600MB/s

    The DDR1 @ 133MHz has 2133MB/s

    Imagine that average DDR3 has a transfer rate of ~13GB/s

    So we are far before we are to close, hehe! :D
