OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that its SAS-based Talos 2 SSDs have been selected by HyVE (Hybrid Virtualization Engine) Systems for implementation within three high-compute platforms targeted for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) academic and corporate end user compute solutions. Providing stellar read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance, high reliability and availability of stored data and desktop applications, the ability to grow with the HyVE Systems platforms, and cost-effectiveness were the key attributes that aided in the selection of OCZ Talos 2 drives.
Combining proven virtualization solutions with state-of-the-art, best-of-breed hardware products that support next-generation cloud requirements, the HyVE System VDI platform provides a cost-effective, high-performance environment that scales to the needs of their customers while providing an extremely low cost per desktop without jeopardizing quality, reliability or performance. A typical HyVE System VDI solution has a fixed cost of approximately $200 per desktop which is significantly lower than traditional virtual solutions that typically start at $1,500 per desktop, and scale down cost to approximately $700 per desktop, depending on infrastructure costs.
HyVE Systems' VDI solutions are smaller, less expensive high-compute platforms that can run either 100+ or 200+ VDI desktops on a single node. For example, many K-12 school districts do not have the budgets to purchase, deploy and maintain brand new computing equipment for their student population and must leverage the existing network infrastructure to cost-effectively extend its life while enabling students and teachers to use their own computing devices regardless of age, operating system or hardware architecture. This approach enables state-of-the-art VDI solutions to be stored as a virtualized desktop on the HyVE central server platform so that students and teachers can work from whatever local computing device they have while the system programs, applications, processes and data are kept on the remote server and run centrally.
Supporting a 6Gb/s SAS interface, capacities up to 1TB, and 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factors, Talos 2 SSDs are designed specifically for mixed workloads in enterprise environments. HyVE Systems leverages OCZ's Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 technology which implements an intelligent complex command queuing structure with unique queue balancing algorithms that improves performance even further. As a result, Talos 2 SSDs deliver the industry's fastest random transactional performance supporting up to 70,000 random 4K read IOPS and 54,000 IOPS for mixed 4K workloads representing 75 percent reads and 25 percent writes.
Unlike many competitive SAS-based SSDs, Talos 2 SSDs are dual ported to provide two redundant data paths, and support OCZ's DataWrite Assurance™ data protection in case of a sudden power loss adding to the product's superior data integrity. Increased security and encryption features (such as AES-256 support and ATA Secure Erase support) coupled with high endurance Multi-Level Cell (MLC) features (such as advanced ECC protection and recovery, minimal write amplification, intelligent block management and wear-leveling) help extend Talos 2 drive life.
"We extensively tested a range of solid-state storage solutions running an intense variety of IO traffic on each and the OCZ Talos 2 SSDs significantly outperformed all other solutions while providing a 10x improvement in performance when compared to a traditional SAN solution with SSD fast cache capabilities," said David Harmon, President of HyVE Systems. "But what really impressed us was the drive's ability to consistently recover from forced failures that we initiated as part of the testing that most of the other SSDs tested could not match. With the industry's best IOPS performance, high enterprise reliability and availability, and a product roadmap that enables this SSD to grow and scale with our HyVE high-compute platforms, positioned the Talos 2 as a best-of-breed product."
"We are very pleased to have been selected by HyVE Systems as part of this highly optimized virtual desktop platform empowering academia with leading-edge cloud solutions that fit within a fixed school budget, meet performance objectives and scale to the needs of the school district and its students," said Alex Mei, CMO of OCZ Technology Group. "We feel that HyVE's concept of building simple and reliable high-compute servers that can run VDI desktops efficiently and cost-effectively will literally provide a VDI hotspot for students that will enhance their user experience."
HyVE Systems has developed three unique VDI high-compute servers that include a standalone VDI-in-a-box solution that supports 8 Talos 2 SSDs and is ideal for small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) applications; a clustered VDI solution that supports 12 Talos 2 SSDs and can scale from 100 to 10,000 VDI desktops; and a tethered VDI solution that supports 16 Talos 2 SSDs and expands the capabilities of the existing VMWare infrastructure without expensive overhead costs. The first of these VDI-specific HyVE Systems have been delivered to school districts in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and are scheduled to go live later this month.

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that its PCI Express (PCIe) SSD platform, featuring all Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD models and VXL software, accelerates virtualization of Microsoft’s cloud-ready SQL Server 2012 database. Providing enterprise, host-based flash performance and support for all virtualization capabilities, this combination of OCZ SSD hardware, with acceleration and virtualization software, is an optimal and cost-effective solution for the data access requirements of SQL Server 2012.
The combination of Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSDs and VXL software enables the full potential of SQL Server 2012 in virtualized data centers through the following key capabilities:
Delivers live, on-demand business data exploration and analysis by combining SQL Server 2012 xVelocity column store indexes with OCZ host-based flash virtualization and caching.Enables auto-detection, hot-zone caching that automatically identifies frequently accessed data pages within SQL Server 2012 to deliver on-host flash caching capabilities.Divides database file groups between virtualized all-flash drives, storage area network (SAN) drives, and flash-cached drives to deliver optimal performance and a reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO).Places performance critical files (such as SQL Server 2012 tempDBs) on host-based flash while retaining network accessibility.Drives dynamic SQL Server 2012 VM migration from one server to another through VMware vMotion support, end-to-end mirroring, high availability (HA) and fault tolerance to server and flash failures.
VXL software enable Z-Drive R4 PCIe cards to be virtualized as a highly available network resource through its ‘SAN-less Data Center’ mode so that the flash can be exposed to any VM in the virtualized cluster without negating any of the virtualization capabilities of the hypervisor layer. This flash-only level performance sets the precedence for an all-silicon SAN-less data center that delivers all the benefits of virtualization without the need for costly backend HDD SANs.
"Our PCIe Z-Drives and VXL software distribute the flash between VMs based on need, making sure that no VM inefficiently occupies flash when it can be better used elsewhere in the SQL Server 2012 environment and that the flash cache itself is optimally used regardless of how many VMs are running concurrently," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology. "Even though the flash cache resource is located in one server, it can be shared across multiple servers making VXL the only fast cache and virtualization software that can deliver this unique capability, especially when VMs do not typically reach peak workload requirements concurrently."
OCZ’s successful fourth generation Z-Drive R4 PCIe card provides a compact, power-efficient solid-state solution that fits directly into a server’s PCI Express slot to increase server application performance while delivering fast and reliable access to data without burdening host CPU and memory resources. When combined with OCZ’s VXL software, any OCZ PCIe-based Z-Drive R4 model (including the Z-Drive R4 CloudServ™) enables the delivery of a complete virtual performance system for enterprise customers looking to efficiently distribute flash resources across VMs as a means to maximize performance of key applications. With the Z-Drive R4 PCIe cards deployed at the host layer of virtual servers, data access is not a limiting factor since VXL software can run up to 10 times the number of VMs and can keep up with the random IO requirements of all the VMs in the system.
For more information on how the combined OCZ hardware/software virtualization solution is optimized for MS SQL Server 2012 applications, dramatically increasing MS SQL Server transactional IOPS performance and query completion times, while reducing database read latencies, please access the following white paper, "Accelerating MS SQL 2012 with OCZ Flash Virtualization"

The excessive downloading of product comparisons and pricing scenarios by subscribers, in conjunction with loading database indexes at 30 to 50 million web pages per day, combined with general network I/O activity, caused considerable disk strain in Dynamite Data’s initial enterprise storage environment. Using conventional hard disk drives (HDDs) penalized system performance and caused disk I/O bottlenecks and latency delays. In addition, the MySQL comparative product databases did not adequately scale when stored in conventional HDDs and required additional drives to satisfy server workload demands, RAID redundancy (in the event of hard drive failures) and more power, cooling and maintenance costs, all of which drove up total cost of ownership (TCO).
As part of its recent IT refresh, Dynamite Data researched competitive enterprise SSDs for inclusion and selected Deneva 2 SSDs from OCZ. With the industry’s fastest transactional performance for SATA III-based drives, Deneva 2 SSDs deliver up to 80,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance (random 4K writes), a maximum bandwidth of 550 MB/s, and support up to 480GB capacities. Supporting best-in-class enterprise endurance and reliability, Deneva 2 SSDs include power loss data protection, minimal write amplification, intelligent block management and wear-leveling, security encryption, and advanced error correction code (ECC) algorithms and techniques.
Dynamite Data conducted a battery of tests on the Deneva 2 SSDs to gauge improvements in database performance and data access. The tests included generating excessive product comparisons and pricing downloads, loading millions of unstructured web buy pages into structured MySQL indexes, all while concurrently running general network I/O activity. In comparison to its original HDD storage configuration, the Deneva 2 SSDs delivered the following performance improvements:
430 percent improvement in read performance;400 percent improvement in write performance;420 percent improvement in total read/write performance; and430 percent improvement in the average number of MySQL queries handled per second.
“By configuring system level applications and database indexes on Deneva 2 SSDs, we eliminated the disk I/O bottlenecks our subscribers experienced in favor of solid-state flash storage that delivers significant and noticeable improvements in system application performance and access to comparative product information,” said Kristopher Kubicki, Chief Architect for Dynamite Data. “With this improved performance, scalability and endurance, the Deneva 2 SSDs will enable us to data warehouse even more web-based retail channel products while providing our subscribers with heightened experiences.”

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, is pleased to announce the Deneva 2 Series SSDs will be used as the storage device of choice in a pending 'Data-Scope' research project at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) to create servers for scientific data processing. This initiative to maximize data processing power is spearheaded by Dr. Alexander Szalay, Alumni Centennial Professor in the university's Department of Physics and Astronomy and Director of the JHU Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science.
With the goal of creating an affordable, powerful computational environment that can be used as a blueprint for future science applications, the JHU project comprises a system of nearly one hundred servers using hundreds of OCZ Deneva 2 SSDs combined with regular hard disk drives with two tiers for storage and computing. These powerful yet inexpensive systems also serve to expose students and researchers to leading-edge technology at an early stage.
"We are extremely pleased to collaborate with The Johns Hopkins University and contribute some of our technical expertise to projects that are on the cutting edge," said Dr. Michael Schuette, V.P. of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "The Data-Scope project using OCZ Deneva 2 SSDs as key components is an important step towards revolutionizing scientific computing, and we are proud to be a part of it."
One of several projects on the Data-Scope is a digital "multiverse" which will contain a database of the most astronomical objects ever detected. The project will allow every astronomer in the world to perform their own data analyses through remote access to the entire database, without the need of downloading tens to hundreds of terabytes of data through the Internet. Similar projects are in progress to analyze hundreds of terabytes of genomic data, and petabyte-scale numerical simulations in turbulence, cosmology and ocean circulation, all "Big Data" problems which do not fit the traditional models of scientific computing.
The completed Data-Scope will drive a new approach to science, where discovery is driven by large data set analysis. In order to be successful, scientists must be able to simultaneously build statistical aggregations over petabytes of data, yet explore the smallest aspects of the underlying collections. The unique advantage of this system is its ability to function both as a "microscope" and as a "telescope" for data, as well as its storage capacity of 6 petabytes, and its 500 gigabytes per second sequential I/O performance and 20 million IOPS. In addition to raw bandwidth, SSDs provide a smaller operating footprint over traditional HDDs, greatly reducing power consumption while still delivering the same amount of IOPS performance .
Leveraging the benefits of General Purpose Computing on GPUs (GPGPU) for scientific and engineering computing, random access data is streamed directly from SSDs into the co-hosted GPUs over the system backplane. The two major benefits of this architecture are the elimination of access latency by the SSD tier of the storage hierarchy, and the elimination of the network bottleneck by co-locating storage and processing on the same server.
OCZ Technology continues to deliver high-performance storage solutions that are a faster and more cost effective to deploy over traditional HDDs in any application, from client and business systems to educational and scientific research purposes. The JHU Data-Scope project, which is scheduled to deploy in early spring, is the ideal showcase for the strengths of SSDs in efficiently and reliably processing multiple petabytes data.
