The combination of an enterprise-class PCIe flash-based storage with enterprise caching software provides the basic ingredients to a successful flash implementation in the data center. To effectively accelerate application performance, the data on SSD flash must be quickly accessible and relevant to the needs of the application. Caching, virtualization and other techniques are required to assure data relevancy and high availability while providing accelerated server application performance.
By streamlining the data path and integration of advanced cache analysis and storage virtualization modules, OCZ’s unified software and hardware solutions deliver high ‘hit ratios,’ fast data access to on-host SSD flash. This level of intelligent caching and flash virtualization enables all data requests to and from a Storage Area Network (SAN) or DAS volumes to be optimized, reducing external traffic to HDD volumes by up to 90 percent while achieving very high selection efficiencies and ultra-low latencies.
