Virtualization Data Management

Virtualization has changed the game when it comes to how enterprises deploy and manage their IT infrastructures. However, more often than not, its potential is not fully realized. When I/O and random access demands increase, traditional storage methods are challenged thereby creating a data bottleneck that can bring an enterprise to its knees.

OCZ's Solid State Drive storage solutions eliminate I/O bottlenecks, delivering the full power of virtualization without sacrificing any of its inherent benefits. The Solid State Drives are completely flexible to allow for use as direct storage devices, as well as software accelerators in virtualized environments. These breakthrough solutions enable beyond ten times the number of Virtual Machines on the same physical host, bringing virtualization to life.
