SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 4 -- OCZ Technology Group, Inc. announced that it will showcase its leading enterprise storage solutions at the Gartner Symposium/ITXpo, Booth #219, Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, October 6th through 10th. As an annual gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives seeking the latest tools, technologies, and information to improve IT capabilities and data center effectiveness, the ITXpo is an excellent opportunity for OCZ to present its leading portfolio of enterprise storage solutions to this targeted audience.
Headlining OCZ’s product presentations at ITXpo is the award-winning ZD-XL SQL Accelerator that delivers the convergence of hardware and software as one tightly integrated, optimized plug-and-play storage solution. This innovative solution accelerates and optimizes Microsoft SQL Server database applications and its high-performance flash-based PCI Express (PCIe) solid-state drive works in combination with intelligent acceleration and caching software to deliver the right and relevant database data when the application needs it.
OCZ will also present its feature-rich VXL Software that provides application-optimized flash caching to accelerate virtualized environments. Combined with high-performance OCZ Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD hardware, VXL 1.3 Software delivers a complete virtual performance system that accelerates virtual machine (VM) applications enabling Z-Drive R4 PCIe flash resources to be dynamically deployed exactly to the needs of VMs. Business users get faster and more reliable access to applications and data they need while IT reduces operating and capital costs and has more time to devote to data center innovation as a result of simplified operations.
Also previewed at ITXpo will be OCZ’s next generation enterprise SATA III and SAS SSD solutions scheduled for general availability later in the year. This includes the upcoming addition to the Intrepid SSD Series (for SATA III interfaces) which features the advanced Everest 2 controller architecture developed by OCZ and optimized to deliver the industry’s best transactional performance with highly developed flash management capabilities that extend NAND flash life and enhance drive reliability.
For SAN acceleration of I/O intensive workloads, OCZ will present its leading Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSDs supporting both full-height (FH) and half-height (HH) configurations, enabling the CPU with direct access to data and zero-latency storage. For HDD replacement in storage arrays and appliances, OCZ will also present its SATA III-based Deneva 2 SSD and SAS-based Talos 2 SSD. These SSDs provide industry-best sequential throughput and IOPS performance, and support a complete arsenal of enterprise-class endurance and reliability tools to protect data integrity and enhance drive life.
