OCZ Technology to Present at the Silicon Valley VMUG Conference on May 1 
Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Session Discusses the Benefits
of Deploying a SAN-less, All Flash, Fault Tolerant Cluster in a
VMware Environment Presented by Dr. Allon Cohen  
SAN JOSE, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/13 --  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 www.ocz.com/enterprise. OCZ is a Gold Sponsor of the
Silicon Valley VMUG Conference.
