ADMIN Magazine Features OCZ VXL Software Solution
April 03, 2013
“OCZ’s Storage Acceleration Software VXL is quite an interesting solution because of various reasons; it is compatible with all operating systems as it does not require agents to function, it reduces overall traffic to and from the SAN by up to 90%, and also allows for up to ten times more virtual machines per server."
"With five virtual machines in place the standard speed is normally limited to 100MB/s per VM but with the OCZ’s caching solution in place we experienced an increase of 500%. While this is already very close speed limit of today’s SATA III SSDs, expanding the network with a 10GbE connection would allow for even higher speeds to be attained."
"Next to accelerating the system as a read-cache, VXL will also soon support the partitioning of the Z-Drive. With this added feature the Z-Drive’s capabilities will also be further enhanced to act as a write cache."
"Our tests have shown that OCZ’s VXL solution is very suitable for virtualized environments that contain a high amount of VM’s and simultaneous read operations.”
