OCZ Technology Group, a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory modules, has announced the company's enterprise storage solutions are now qualified with Adaptec MaxIQ SSD caching products. The move comes weeks after the company proclaimed compatibility with LSI controllers and emphasizes OCZ’s expanding presence on the market of enterprise SSDs.

 

The optimization of MaxIQ storage controllers allows OCZ SSDs to perform at even higher levels, maximizing performance and cost-savings.

Combined with Adaptec's MaxIQ SSD caching, OCZ SSDs can deliver up to eight times the I/O performance of hard disk drive-only arrays, and can reduce capital and operating expenses up to 70%by allowing integration of high-performance hybrid arrays (HPHAs) consisting of both hard disk drives (HDDs) and SSDs. MaxIQ SSD caching tools are available to analyze I/O data flows and predict performance, plus I/O instrumentation allows for easy configuration, monitoring and management for data centers and cloud computing customers.

"OCZ is constantly looking for new opportunities to provide our customers with innovative ways to integrate SSD technology into enterprise class storage solutions that meet the demanding performance and reliability requirements of data center and computing applications. MaxIQ Caching Software together with OCZ SSDs will increase I/O performance and lower the total cost of ownership while reducing energy consumption, offering a considerable improvement in overall value and performance,” said Alex Mei, chief marketing officer of the OCZ Technology Group.
