OCZ Storage Solutions and Panorama Software Announce Extreme Performance Technology Collaboration

Collaborated Demonstration at the PASS BA Conference, May 7th to 9th, Delivers Real-Time Big Data Analytics of Data Stored in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Databases

SAN JOSE, CA and TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 05, 2014) - OCZ Storage Solutions - a Toshiba Group Company and leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, and Panorama Software, a global leader in Business Intelligence (BI) 3.0 solutions, have established a technology partnership to deliver real-time Big Data analytics of data stored in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 databases.

The companies have jointly developed a solutions demonstration for the upcoming PASS Business Analytics (BA) Conference showcasing Panorama's leading Necto BI capabilities with OCZ's ZD-XL SQL Accelerator's ability to accelerate SQL Server applications. The collaborated demonstration showcases how the power of data transforms businesses through data-driven insights and business intelligence and will be presented during exhibit hours in OCZ's booth E-11 at the PASS BA Conference, San Jose Convention Center, May 7th through May 9th.

"The combination of our Necto BI solution coupled with one of the industry's fastest acceleration cards for SQL Server delivers an advanced business intelligence solution that unleashes the value of enterprise information whether that information is structured, semi-structured or unstructured," said Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software. "We are pleased to partner with OCZ to help solve those critical challenges associated with Big Data analysis so that efficient and relevant insights can lead to informed decision-making and invariably better business decisions."

"We are pleased to join forces with Panorama Software to deliver real-time, self-service analytics of large database data sets that reside in SQL Server," said Dr. Allon Cohen, Vice-President of Software and Solutions for OCZ Storage Solutions. "The ability to analyze, visualize and collaborate data in an infographic format while accelerating I/O and the application itself provides an extreme performance analytical solution from two visionary leaders in enterprise BI and storage."

Analyzing large data sets has become a key issue in today's enterprises as organizations have gained the ability to get access to Big Data and to make it more useful and meaningful. Advanced tools, such as Panorama Necto, enable additional data exploration and advanced analysis to be performed in a matter of minutes providing a powerful combination of in-memory performance coupled with advanced data discovery tools. Powered by in-memory engines, self-service interactive analytics, infographics and dynamic dashboards, the Necto BI solution enables business users to easily access, analyze, visualize, track performance, collaborate with colleagues, and share data for quick, efficient and relevant insights that lead to informed decision-making with minimal IT involvement.

To provide accelerated Microsoft SQL Server performance of these large database data sets, OCZ's ZD-XL SQL Accelerator leverages its proven PCIe SSD hardware and application-tuned software to deliver low latency flash that can be deployed as a local flash volume, a flash cache for HDD volumes, or as a combination of both. It provides a potent combination of fast flash performance, a unique cache mechanism that makes advanced and statistically-optimized decisions on what data to cache, a dynamic cache warm-up scheduler that enables workloads to be placed on flash cache in advance of demanding and critical jobs, and a wizard-based GUI that enables DBAs to setup caching policies that optimize performance based on SQL Server workloads.
