OCZ Technology Showcases Its Flash-Based Virtualization Solutions at VMworld 
Europe 2013 
Exhibit B414, Fira Barcelona Gran Via -- North Entrance, October
SAN JOSE, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 --  OCZ Technology Group,
Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid
state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, is showcasing
its VMware-based solid state virtualization solutions at VMworld
Europe 2013, located in Booth B414, Fira Barcelona Gran Via -- North
Entrance, from October 15th through 17th.  
OCZ's fourth generation Z-Drive R4 PCI Express (PCIe) SSD Series and
VXL Cache & Virtualization Software will be presented in the
Company's booth, as this combined hardware/software solution enables
flash data caching and application acceleration into VMware
virtualized server platforms to provide all of the benefits of flash
without compromise. This VMware Readyâ„¢ solution distributes flash
caching resources on-demand across virtual machines (VMs) to maximize
application performance, and distributes the flash between VMs making
sure that no VM inefficiently occupies flash when it can be better
used elsewhere in the environment. The end result is optimal
delivery, management, and utilization of flash resources and flash
caching in the software-defined data center (SDDC) regardless of how
many VMs are running concurrently. 
"Our proven Z-Drive SSDs and VXL Software are combined to deliver a
complete virtual performance system that accelerates VM applications
enabling flash resources to be dynamically deployed exactly to the
needs of VMs," said Dr. Allon Cohen, Vice-President of Software and
Solutions for OCZ Technology. "The result is that business users get
faster and more reliable access to the applications and data they
need while IT reduces operating and capital costs, and with
simplified operations, has more time to devote to data center
Support for VMware Fault Tolerance (FT) without the need for a costly
back-end storage area network (SAN) is one of the unique and key
differential advantages of OCZ solid state virtualization. In this
High Availability (HA) 'SAN-less' enterprise, flash data is
synchronously replicated by VXL Software between Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD
cards residing on redundant cluster servers assuring that host-based
flash is treated as a continuously available storage resource across
VMware clusters. This approach yields no data loss and no VM downtime
even during complete server, system or power failures. 
Another key differential of OCZ solid state virtualization enables IT
managers to pre-load the flash cache in advance and at pre-determined
schedules to ensure that critical data is available on Z-Drive PCIe
flash at the precise time it will be required by the application.
