OCZ Technology to Present at the Silicon Valley VMUG Conference on May 1

SAN JOSE, CA – April 29, 2013 — / — OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that Dr. Allon Cohen, Vice President of Software and Solutions, will present a Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery session at the Silicon Valley VMUG Conference on the benefits of deploying a SAN-less, all flash-based fault tolerant cluster in a VMware environment.

Dr. Cohen’s presentation entitled, “Going All-Flash, SAN-less, and Staying Fault Tolerant” is scheduled on May 1, 2013, 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm, Meeting Room 210, during the Silicon Valley VMUG Conference, Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

The presentation discusses the benefits of using server-based SSD flash in conjunction with advanced virtualization software to accelerate Virtual Machine (VM) access to storage in VMware® environments. This approach is becoming more common as supported by the widespread deployment of on-host flash in virtualized data centers.  Utilizing PCIe flash-based solutions, low latency storage is closer than ever to the host’s CPU, providing the random access advantages of NAND flash and a perfect option to address the hypervisor I/O ‘Blender Effect.’

“As IT managers implement on-host flash into virtualized environments, the local host storage resource can negate key virtualization capabilities such as end-to-end mirroring, High Availability, Fault Tolerance, and vMotion, if not deployed correctly,” said Dr. Cohen.  “Our VMUG presentation will show how a completely fault tolerant clustered environment can be setup on on-host PCIe-based flash to attain its high-performance benefits while providing uninterrupted services to end-users.”

Dr. Cohen is a frequent contributor to industry publications on the subject of flash usage optimization in virtualized environments, and his thoughts on this subject may be followed in blogs and videos available at  OCZ is a Gold Sponsor of the Silicon Valley VMUG Conference.
