OCZ will also present its VXL Software that provides application-optimized flash caching to accelerate virtualized environments. Combined with the 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 to the needs of VMs.
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 Everest 2 controller architecture developed by OCZ.
For SAN acceleration of I/O intensive workloads, OCZ will present its 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 high sequential throughput and IOPS performance, and support enterprise-class endurance and reliability tools.
