OCZ Technology Ships One Millionth Solid State Drive

When it comes to milestones, this is definitely one that hits home in our industry. Solid state drives have been around for years at this point, and while they're hardly more affordable than they once were, and definitely not nearly as sizable (in terms of capacity) as HDDs, people are splurging on them. OCZ Technology has been a major SSD player for some time now, and the company just recently shipped their one millionth SSD. One million!

That's a pretty big number for a smaller company; OCZ doesn't have the namesake or distribution channels like WD or Seagate, yet the company is clearly getting their SSDs out to performance-minded consumers. Kudos to OCZ for keeping a good thing going, and hopefully we're finally getting closer to a point where SSDs are affordable for the majority, rather than the minority.

OCZ designs and manufactures SSD solutions to address a wide spectrum of applications from personal computers and high-performance workstations to mission critical enterprise storage arrays.

OCZ has become a real driver for this sector at least to me. Everyone has to compete with them, and I would also imagine there either the largest producer or one of maybe 3 in the sector. The thing that really separates them to me is they stay open and they always seem to be either on the front line if not the best performer, which of course they are now as well as have been at many times. This is especially true if you weigh everything such as price performance level availability and the rate at which they push the envelope in the technology specific area.
