OCZ Technology to Showcase Its Award-Winning ZD-XL SQL Accelerator at PASS 
Summit 2013 
Tightly Integrated Flash-Based PCIe Hardware/Software Solution
Designed Specifically to Accelerate and Optimize Microsoft SQL Server
SAN JOSE, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 10/14/13 --  OCZ Technology Group,
Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance
solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, will
showcase its award-winning ZD-XL SQL Accelerator at this year's PASS
Summit 2013 conference and exhibition, at the Charlotte Convention
Center, Charlotte, North Carolina, from October 16th through 18th.
The Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) Summit is the
largest focused conference for Microsoft SQL Server and Business
Intelligence (BI) professionals. 
OCZ's ZD-XL SQL Accelerator represents the convergence of hardware
and software as one tightly integrated, optimized plug-and-play
storage solution that innovatively accelerates and optimizes SQL
Server database applications. It features a high-performance
flash-based PCI Express (PCIe) solid-state drive that works in
combination with intelligent acceleration and caching software to
deliver the right and relevant data when SQL Server needs it. 
"The ZD-XL SQL Accelerator's unique ability to flexibly partition its
flash between local volumes and cache through our proprietary Direct
Pass Caching technology is unrivaled in the industry as it enables
tempDB files to benefit from fast flash performance while hot data
from production databases can be cached in flash for immediate
availability by SQL Server," said Dr. Allon Cohen, Vice-President of
Software and Solutions for OCZ Technology. "This advanced
architecture efficiently distributes database workloads in parallel
between available flash resources enabling up to 25 times improved
SQL Server performance." 
ZD-XL SQL Accelerator is also designed to enable complete High
Availability (HA) through Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn technology,
so not only can SQL Server databases function at the speed of flash,
but in the event of planned or unplanned downtime, can continue
operations and retain all of its data as if no downtime had occurred.
For true plug-and-play deployment, the user-friendly ZD-XL SQL
Accelerator graphical user interface (GUI) features simple
step-by-step implementation wizards that guide database
administrators (DBAs) through best practice models for deployment of
its flash-based resources while enabling seamless connection into
existing or new SQL Server installations.  
Join OCZ Technology at PASS Summit 2013 to see the latest
acceleration solution designed specifically for SQL Server
applications. For more information on this award-winning product,
