Dramatically Accelerating Cloud Computing Applications
Introducing the OCZ Z-Drive R4 CloudServ Series. With increasing emphasis on cloud computing and the sheer growth in data, PCIe-based flash storage systems have the ability to bypass traditional storage overhead by reducing latencies, increasing throughput, and enabling efficient processing of massive quantities of data. The Z-Drive R4 CloudServ is capable of transferring multiple gigabytes per second and delivering over a million IOPS with a level of concentrated performance that enables system architects to design more productive and less complex infrastructures while lowering costs associated with hardware failure, maintenance, structural footprint, and energy consumption.
Melding hardware and software managed solutions with OCZ's integrated Virtualized Controller Architecture™ (VCA) 2.0 and OCZ's SANRAD VXL virtual acceleration caching software, the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ can be employed as a high-performing host-based flash cache that works in conjunction with OCZ's VXL to dynamically allocate flash resources to accelerate all virtual machines.
OCZ Z-Drives integrate seamlessly with servers at the system bus and kernel level, creating a new flash memory tier and dramatically increasing data throughput and cloud application performance all while slashing capital and operating costs.
