  • OCZ Z-Drive 6000 NVMe PCIe SSD can do 3 GB per second

    For a definite ‘whaaat ?’ moment check this out. Over at CES OCZ has put some cool stuff on display, though Enterprise datacenter oriented this little 3000 MB/sec performing puppy caught our attention.

    It is a PCIe based NVMe Flash storage SSD that can manage sustained reads up-to 3000 MB/sec and writes up-to 2000 MB/sec. The PMC Sierra controller supports NVMe connectivity and power modes is switchable to enable even higher performance. Read More

  • OCZ Storage Solutions Z-Drive 6000 NVMe SSD on display at CES 2015

    CES 2015 -OCZ Storage Solutions displayed the Z-Drive 6000 NVMe SSD in their suite at CES 2015. The Z-Drive 6000 sports speeds of 3,000 MB/s for sequential read and 2,000 MB/s for sequential write workloads. Random reads weigh in at an outstanding 700,000 IOPS, and random writes are equally impressive at 175,000 IOPS. The Z-Drive 6000 will provide 1-3 DWPD, which is becoming the standard for most datacenter SSDs, largely due to increased density. The Z-Drive 6000 utilizes the NVMe interface, covered in detail in our Defining NVMe article. Read More

  • Power over Ethernet plugfest planned

    The University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) recently announced some of the steps it will take in 2015, within several of its consortia and collaborative testing programs, to prepare the networking industry for innovations in Ethernet technology. Among the planned activities is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) plugfest the lab will carry out in collaboration with the Ethernet Alliance. The plugfest will be “focused on IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standards relevant to IP cameras, wireless access points, automation, and other applications,” UNH-IOL said. “The Power over Ethernet plugfest will test participants’ devices to the respective IEEE 802.3 PoE specifications, which distinguishes IEEE 802.3-based devices from other non-standards-based PoE solutions.”  Read More 12/03/14
