I was told that in 1990's big freeze a Berkeley Izote was killed by 24f temps.

Looks a lot like a Beuacarnia recurvata with curly leaves. Leaves also tend to be a lot longer, and a bit thinner and shinier than regular Beaucarnia/Nolina recurvata. Otherwise similar hardiness, growth rate and husbandry. Becoming much more available, at least in Southern California 2005 and later (used to be a really rare plant, but now most succulent nurseries have this for sale, and even 'regular' nurseries often offer this plant- prices range incredibly- so shop around!)
