EE Times - Memory Week in Review Featuring OCZ ZD-XL
July 23, 2013
"Meanwhile, OCZ just released its ZD-XL SQL Accelerator, a flash-based PCIe solid state drive that delivers capacities as high as 1.6 TB. The accelerator architecture exposes its PCIe-based on-host flash as both local and cache volumes, and efficiently distributes random database workloads in parallel between its available flash to boost database performance by a factor of 25."
"Partitioning the flash between local volumes and cache enables data files like tempDB to benefit from high flash performance while hot database data is cached to flash for immediate availability by SQL Server. 'By deploying ZD-XL SQL Accelerator in our database servers, we reduced the run time of key SQL Server jobs from 2.5 hours to 45 minutes, without replacing our SAN,' said Lars Ketting, ICT, Cartal Rijsbergen Automotive."
