  1. LSI has announced that its LSI Nytro flash accelerator cards have been tested to help improve and amplify the performance of SQL Server 2014. The LSI Nytro line of PCIe flash accelerators are specifically designed to deliver high performance, reduce latency and a lower CPU burden for the most resource-heavy database applications and I/O-intensive workloads.

  2. The OCZ ZD-XL SQL Accelerator is a duty-specific combination of hardware and software designed explicitly, as the name implies, to accelerate SQL databases. ZD-XL leverages an OCZ Z-Drive R4 RM series PCIe application accelerator as the flash storage layer combined with a host application to either accelerate a SQL volume on hard drives or accelerate a SQL database by placing it in flash. Its biggest differentiator though is a third option; if the situation calls for it ZD-XL can do both - accelerate a SQL volume on the flash card and cache large databases that reside on HDDs.

  3. We've started testing the OCZ ZD-XL SQL accelerator solution. We're using 16x900GB WD Xe HDDs in an iXSystems JBOD as a baseline and comparing those results against the 1.6 TB ZD-XL (Z-Drive R4 tuned for SQL caching). SQL testing is being driven by up to 20,000 virtual users in Benchmark Factory's TPC-C workload. We'll update this thread as we progress and are open to fielding questions or comments on the solution at large. More background information is available here -
