OCZ: Flash Acceleration For Microsoft SQL Server
SSD pioneer OCZ, which early this year was acquired by Toshiba, used Microsoft TechEd North America 2014 to showcase two accelerated flash-based storage solutions.
The first was a beta version of OCZ’s next-generation ZD-XL SQL Accelerator, a device that targets optimized and efficient flash acceleration for Microsoft SQL Server environments. Working with SQL Server 2014, the solution provides improved storage performance, availability and manageability, OCZ said. The second was a solution jointly developed with business intelligence software developer Panorama Software, which provides high-performance business analytics for SQL Server applications using OCZ’s ZD-XL SQL Accelerator.
