Other World Computing announced today its new OWC Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G Solid State Drive. Certified for mission-critical deployments that demand the highest performance and data reliability, the drive delivers data rates of more than 500MB/s, up to 100x greater data protection, and up to 90 percent lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to the highest-rated enterprise-class hard disk drives (HDDs). For added protection, OWC’s new Enterprise SSD completes data writes during unexpected power outages and is backed by the SSD industry’s longest warranty—seven years. The OWC Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G will be available by the end of Q1 2012 in 50, 100, 200, and 400GB capacities with pricing from $629.00. OWC will highlight the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G along with its broad line of award-winning SSDs in its booth #5231 in the LVCC North Hall during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which begins Tuesday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSD combines the latest SandForce 2500 Series processor with endurance-optimizing SandForce DuraClass technology with Enterprise Toggle Syncronous (eMLC) 10K PE flash NAND to deliver more that 3x the reliability and lifespan of standard MLC NAND. The SandForce Driven SSD also delivers up to 60K IOPS, and over 500MB/s data rates. By ensuring the highest levels of balanced read/write performance, the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSD keeps the all important cost per IOPS ratio at the lowest possible level while still providing the critical reliability and performance metrics required by demanding applications.
