"The Pinnacle of Storage Performance The OCZ Z-Drive R4 Series CM88 eliminates I/O and bandwidth bottlenecks by delivering up to 2,800 MB/s Max Read/Write and 500,000 IOPS (per SuperScale controller). It delivers the performance of thousands of hard disk drives in a single server." They are priced around $15k to $19k from what I can see. Must be a ton of margin in this!
these items have been beta tested with ocz's new controller (not sandforce) and have started shipping.
no matter what ocz paid for outside acceptance it's a much quicker certification and much better then using an 3rd party controller. doesn't get better then your own, award winning controller and software.
