SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/13 --
OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that its recently launched ZD-XL SQL Accelerator enterprise storage solution will be showcased at the PASS Summit's SQLSaturday workshop this Saturday, July 27. SQLSaturday events are one-day workshop and training seminars for Microsoft SQL Server professionals or those wanting to learn more about the features and applications of this popular software platform, with focus on local speakers and a variety of high-quality technical sessions.
This free, all-day educational event begins at 7:30 a.m. PT and is located at the Patrick Hays Learning Center in Sacramento, California. OCZ is a silver sponsor of this event and will have representatives on site throughout the day to display and answer questions about the newly released ZD-XL SQL Accelerator, showcasing the convergence of enterprise hardware and software as one tightly integrated, optimized plug-and-play storage solution that accelerates and optimizes Microsoft SQL Server database applications in enterprise environments.
ZD-XL SQL Accelerator includes a high-performance flash-based PCIe solid-state drive that works in combination with intelligent acceleration and caching software to deliver the right and relevant SQL Server data when the application needs it. This ability to partition its flash between local volumes and cache enables data files to benefit from high flash performance and hot database data to be cached on flash for immediate availability by SQL Server. The result is a unique architecture that efficiently distributes random database workloads to provide up to 25 times improved database performance depending on the application load.
Join OCZ this Saturday in Sacramento at the PASS Summit SQLSaturday workshop to view the ZD-XL SQL Accelerator, or visit www.ocz.com/enterprise for more information on this solution.
