Delivering Leading Sustained Performance with OCZ’s Z-Drive 4500 PCIe SSD Series and DataCore Software-defined Storage
Validated by PCIe SSD Verification Testing Conducted by DataCore Software (as part of the DataCore Ready Program Certification) Scott Harlin OCZ Storage Solutions
DataCore Software is a global leader in software-defined storage particularly related to virtualization. Its flagship product, SANsymphony-V, is DataCore’s tenth generation storage virtualization solution, and as of this publishing, has been deployed in more than 10,000 customer sites worldwide. The software is designed to maximize IT infrastructure performance, availability and utilization by virtualizing storage assets. Once deployed, it seamlessly manages and scales data storage architectures, combines all available storage into a single storage pool and virtualizes it, delivering large performance gains through a hardware-agnostic model.
As SANsymphony-V software is highly regarded and used extensively worldwide, OCZ’s Z-Drive 4500 PCIe SSD Series complements this software with performance optimization, virtualization, caching, and large densities, amongst a host of other features and capabilities. It is backed by a more robust architectural design (over the previous generation Z-Drive R4 Series), as well as an advanced suite of enterprise-class endurance and data reliability tools expected by today’s IT managers. In the software-defined datacenter, virtualization and system efficiencies are driven through software requiring a cost-effective approach to managing storage growth while maximizing hardware investments, such as SSDs.
To identify those hardware solutions that are trusted to enhance DataCore’s SANsymphony-V software-defined storage infrastructures, the DataCore Ready Program was established. Those solutions listed as DataCore Ready have completed additional verification testing to provide customer confidence of joint solution compatibility. A DataCore Ready designation is awarded to these third party hardware products that have successfully met the verification test criteria.
