OCZ Storage Solutions Adds Host Managed SSD Technology to Saber 1000 Models

The new HMS-driven platform enables system level management of SSD background operations for greater system performance and consistency.

Toshiba Group Company and SSD manufacturer OCZ Storage Solutions has announced the addition of Host Managed SSD (HMS) technology to its Saber 1000 Series SSDs. The technology enables host controls over internal SSD background processing tasks that were previously not exposed to host-level software. System-level software control of background processing tasks, such as Garbage Collection, boosts overall storage performance and provides a consistent and predictable latency across a large pool of SSDs, states the company.

“Our new Saber HMS SSD, together with a software library and API, enable for the first time software orchestration of internal housekeeping tasks across large pools of SSDs, thus overcoming performance barriers that were simply not possible to address without this technology,” says Oded Ilan, general manager of OCZ’s R&D Team in Israel.

The HMS-enabled Saber 1000 SSDs are managed by software APIs, providing control over the HMS functionality within the Saber HMS SSD. The company is providing a reference design and demonstration platform which showcases the functionality of Saber HMS and enables benchmarking of the HMS system performance in real time. OCZ also provides a software library and a Programmer’s Guide so HMS can be integrated into storage stacks of storage OEMs or software defined storage applications.

The Saber 1000 SATA Series is OCZ’s first product to support HMS controls and includes usable capacities of 480GB and 960GB in a 2.5-inch x 7mm enclosure.
