Data Center And Storage
Besting storage giants HP and Dell in Interop's Data Center and Storage category was OCZ Technology, an SSD maker based in San Jose, Calif.
OCZ took home the gold for its ZD-XL SQL Accelerator, a plug-and-play flash acceleration solution for SQL server deployments. According to OCZ, the product is a unique mix of enterprise-grade hardware and software that works to ensure the appropriate data is on an SSD flash whenever an SQL server needs it. The ZD-XL Accelerator can be plugged into either an existing or new SQL installation, and it provides flash caching for SAN or DAS database volumes.
