"Over the course of the last few years, we have met the demand for a better storage option head-on, by delivering high performance solid state disk drives to a wide array of customers globally" said Ryan Petersen, President and Chief Executive Officer of OCZ Technology Group. "This round of funding will enable OCZ to continue its growth in SSDs and accelerate the development of next-generation solutions."
Mr. Petersen further commented, "We believe that OCZ is well-positioned to advance the deployment of flash-based storage solutions. OCZ will continue to design, develop and implement SSD technology with its current base of over 300 customers while opening up new markets through targeting enterprise and OEM customers seeking to adopt flash media as primary storage."
