OCZ Technology Group is showing off solid-state drives (SSDs) at this year's CeBIT (News - Alert) trade show in Hannover, Germany. OCZ's products will be displayed and demonstrated in Hall 17, Booth D31 between March 6 and 10.
Among other products, OCZ will show the forthcoming Vertex (News - Alert) 4 SSD Series. It is based on the SATA 6Gbps Indilinx Everest 2 platform, according to a company press release. Other products from OCZ are the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ PCI (News - Alert) Express SSDs. They offer original equipment manufacturers and data centers appealing bandwidth, features and capacities, according to a press statement appearing on TMCnet. The Z-Drive R4 will accompany a demonstration of the SANRAD (News - Alert) VXL Storage Accelerator software during the trade show, TMCnet adds.
In addition to SSD technology, OCZ offers components for computing devices and systems. These include enterprise products for power management and computer gaming solutions, TMCnet said.

In other recent company news, OCZ reported that OCZ’s SSDs were used with Acer systems in the winning system design during the Student Cluster Competition at the recent Super Computing (SC11) event in Seattle.
“The Student Cluster Competition at SC11 was an opportunity for students to harness the incredible power of current-generation cluster hardware, where teams of six students built a small cluster of their own design on the exhibit floor and raced to demonstrate the greatest sustained performance across a series of applications,” according to a press release from OCZ. “The winning team from the National Tsing Hua University leveraged the speeds and access times of OCZ SSDs in conjunction with Acer systems as boot devices in the cluster. The use of OCZ's SSDs in the system not only sped up deployment, but dramatically increased IO speeds in subsequent benchmarks.”
Also, during analysis of large data sets, OCZ’s SSDs helped to eliminate bottlenecks when using Xeon CPUs and NVIDIA (News - Alert) Tesla GPUs, the company adds.
