HP Z Turbo Drive Optimises Storage for Workstation Workflows

The HP Z Turbo Drive G2 PCIe SSD, an M.2 PCIe connected SSD powered by Samsung’s NVMe specification, can output up to four times the performance of a conventional SATA SSD for a similar cost. It was developed with the new NVMe protocol, designed for flash memory to achieve higher bandwidth and shorter latency in SSDs.

The result is faster sequential performance, and more than twice the random read performance of the original G1 drive. In particular, this second generation HP Z Turbo Drive attains fast I/O response to process large data sets.

The HP Z Turbo Drive G2 is supported on theZ440, Z640andZ840 Workstations, which can be expanded by integrating the HP Z Turbo Drive G2 with high capacity SATA HDDs and SSDs. HP supports several other storage components and controllers to enable various storage set-ups. Most of these component configurations are technically supported, although they may not be available from the factory.

Like other NVMe devices, the Turbo Drive G2 requires a driver for correct detection and operation. Microsoft Windows 8 and higher have an inbox NVMe driver. For Windows 7, HP recommends using the Samsung NVMe driver, available online. For Linux, the NVMe driver has been merged into version 3.3 of the Linux kernel.

HP Z Turbo Drive is expected to be available in Australia inJuly 2015in two capacities, 256 GB and 512 GB, pricing to be confirmed. www.hp.com
