Icy news: OCZ: Synapse SSDs for High-Performance Caching

2.5-inch, 6Gb SATA, 64GB and 128GB, 80,000 IO/s, Dataplex software

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. launched its Synapse Cache Series 2.5" SSDs.

The new Synapse SSDs are optimized for caching applications and leverages Dataplex cache software to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard HDDs, to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD.

"The industry has shown that it craves the performance advantages that SSDs provide, however, many users still value the high capacities associated with HDDs," said Tobias Brinkmann, Director of Product Management, OCZ Technology Group. "We see the Synapse Cache SSDs integrated with Dataplex software as a big win for a large number of customers who value SSD performance but still require HDD capacity. We are proud to be the first to offer this no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform."

This caching solution prioritizes the most frequently/recently used 'hot' data on the Synapse Cache SSD, while 'cold,' less frequently used data is stored on the larger capacity HDD. The OCZ Synapse series features the hardware and software technology to deliver storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity.
