OCZ announced that the new Deneva 2 and Intrepid series mSATA SSDs are now an option to be included in manufacturers’ products today. Carryimg a small form factor, the SSDs are made to fit several media, including tablets, slim servers, dual drive notebooks, and network security devices. OCZ states that they not only deliver better performance than hard drives because they have no moving parts but that they provide security, reliability, and save money in the enterprise storage environment realm.
The Intrepid and Deneva 2 OCZ SSDs contain no outer housing, slimming down the form factor to make for easier use in boot modules or with hard drive caching. They also provide a lower energy consumption. OCZ states that they meet storage and caching requirements for OEMs. OCZ states that they provide faster sequential write speeds and IOPS due to a feature called the Indilinx Arowana Flash Transition Layer.
