Computer-Aided Design is used heavily across a variety of industries, from product design and engineering, to landscaping and architecture. It is used in the design of tools and machinery, in the drafting and design of all types of buildings, from residential homes to large manufacturing centers. Computer-Aided Engineering tools are used to analyze the robustness and performance of components and assemblies, as well as in the simulation, validation, and optimization of products and manufacturing tools. Computer-Aided Manufacturing is used to assist in all operations of manufacturing, including planning, management, transportation and storage.

As file sizes grow and creative projects become increasingly more complex, the need for very fast and reliable storage is paramount. Large files must be stored, saved, and shared quickly among large numbers of users, making fast, reliable access vital to an engineering department’s productivity. Storage and access of large files for collaboration ranges from traditional workstations, all the way to database and file servers. Traditional rotational media present performance bottlenecks, hamper productivity, and have high costs associated with maintenance.

OCZ Enterprise Storage Solutions use significantly less power than hard disks, and enable data to be quickly and efficiently accessed electronically rather than mechanically. OCZ Solid State Storage Devices offer such rapid access and response times that they accelerate or eliminate the need for large, costly external storage arrays, such as Storage Area Networks. This translates into significant capital and power savings, while providing substantial productivity gains.
