The OCZ Z-Drive p84 is one of two plug-and-play, bootable PCI-E SSD drives released in September 2009. Designed as a “cost-effective means for enterprise customers” seeking to employ SSD technology, the Z-Drive retails in multi-level cell (e84) and single-level cell (p84) formats. The MLC Z-Drive p84 offers an increased capacity up to 1TB, but it offers reduced performance speeds of 640MB/s write and 770MB/s read. Like its predecessor, the p84 works by combining high-speed, 8-lane PCI-E architecture with a four-SSD, enterprise-grade RAID 0 configuration that essentially eliminates the SATA bottleneck. The result is lowered power consumption, enhanced shock resistance, and superior durability, which in turn equates to reduced maintenance costs and more energy savings.
