200GB Mercury Enterprise® Pro 6G SSD
2.5" Serial-ATA 9.5mm Solid State Drive

Offers Highest Storage Performance and Reliability for:
  • Mission Critical 24/7 Server usage
  • I/O-intensive storage arrays and high-end workstations
  • Small to medium-sized businesses (SMB)
  • Professional media creation/editing industries
OWC's Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G Solid State Drives are designed and built for mission-critical deployments that demand the highest performance and data reliability. With data rates exceeding 500MB/s, up to 100x greater data protection, and up to 90% lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to the highest-rated hard disk drives, the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSD is the new standard of Enterprise-class storage.
  • Proprietary OWC Paratus™ Power Technology ensures any existing writes will be committed/retired to prevent data loss and the drive will be shut down properly during an unexpected power interruption.
  • Enterprise class processor maximizes high-density NAND flash memory performance
  • Toshiba Enterprise Toggle Synchronous (eMLC) 10K PE NAND Flash Storage for more than 3x the reliability and lifespan of standard MLC NAND
  • Maintains highest levels of balanced read/write performance (up to 60K IOPS & over 500MB/s data rates)
  • SATA Revision 3.0 (6Gb/s) interface with NCQ
  • Qualified for use with all RAID levels
Built Specifically to Handle I/O Intensive, Mission Critical Uses
Designed for I/O-intensive enterprise servers, storage arrays, and high-end workstations as well as small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) in the financial, telecom, web/mail, gaming, public security, retail, and professional media creation/editing industries, the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G is ideal for:
  • Highest performance, lowest latency
  • Intense input/output (I/O) workloads
  • Online transaction processing (OLTP)
  • Data warehousing, data mining, and web serving
  • Dynamic tiered storage solutions
  • Transaction intense Tier 0 storage
ROI as Fast as the Drive
By deploying Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSDs for an I/O-intensive task such as an Extract Transform Load (ETL) process, an IT department can reduce data sessions involving up to 25 million records from eight hours to two hours. With six hours of newfound data analysis, an IT staff can execute multiple sessions on the same day. That's a competitive advantage that can be used to deliver an immediate ROI impact on the bottom line.
Double the Data Security
Highest-level security protocols are used to ensure data stored in the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G is safe from loss, theft, or repurposing. Data is automatically stored in a highly secure AES-128 hardware double encrypted format.
Up to 90 Percent Lower Total Cost of Ownership
The Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G offers up to 90% lower TCO compared to traditional hard drives because fewer SSDs are required to achieve the same IOPS performance level that multiple hard drives provide. With fewer drives required:
  • Power consumption is dramatically reduced by up to 90%
  • Drive environment cooling requirements are significantly reduced
  • Fewer storage racks are needed
  • Data center space expansion can be delayed or even eliminated
works in racks, sub systems, servers or workstations
OWC Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSDs can be used anywhere you can use 2.5" or 3.5" (with adapter) SATA Revision 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0 drives.

Release Candidate (RC) firmware set

There are two kinds of firmware for SSDs Mass Production (MP) and Release Candidate (RC). Prior to an MP firmware release, there are beta firmware releases and an RC firmware release. Often, the RC is the same as the MP release, however there can be small changes and bug fixes made between the two. OWC has evaluated the RC for the 6Gb/s SandForce 2281 Processor and found it to be stable with no issues reported during our testing. However, as with any evolutionary product, issues may surface as different usages and configurations are employed and it is important to understand that there will be further updates and revisions.

Since no firmware update is currently offered for the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD, no update page exists. To see the typical steps involved with a self performed field firmware update, please visit our 3Gb/s product update page at: http://eshop.macsales.com/Customized_Pages/Framework.cfm?page=sf_firmware.html

It is important to note that the current firmware update tool requires the use of Windows XP/Vista/7. OWC is currently working on a Mac OS based update tool, but we do not have an exact availability date.

  1. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). The actual total capacity will depend on your own defined file settings/preferences. 
  2. In terms of standard gigabytes, 1GiB ≈ 1.074GB and refers to the actual formatted capacity of shown under Mac OS 10.5 or earlier and Microsoft Windows OS.
  3. Specific application environments such as temperature and duty cycle will affect the overall reliability.
  4. Specifications provided by SandForce.
  5. Temperature reporting is currently an unsupported feature because due to the operating characteristics of SSDs, it is highly unlikely one would ever exceed an OWC Mercury SSD's stated operating temperature ceiling of 158F/70C. However, we are looking into supporting this feature in the future via a firmware update. Firmware updates can be found here: http://eshop.macsales.com/tech_center/OWC/SSD.
