OCZ Technology - Going Beyond a Rebadge
OCZ Technology has led the charge for consumer solid state drives. No other company has released so many different SSD products in the two years that I have been covering the market. Currently the OCZ website shows nine different product names that are currently available and several others that have passed EOL (End of Life). This is a staggering number and something that we couldn't overlook in the State of Solid State II.
Recently it has come to light that OCZ has been working closely with Indilinx. Of the nine current life SSDs OCZ offers, six are based on the Indilinx Barefoot controller, so it is of little surprise to see the two companies working so closely together. To date, OCZ has been the first to release any new firmware updates for Indilinx controlled drives; they have also been a leader in distributing beta firmware for end users to use.
OCZ sells some of the most advanced Barefoot SSDs on the market. The Vertex EX drive appears to be a cut above all other Barefoot drives since it uses very fast single level cell memory that also extends the drives overall life. The Agility EX is also an SLC drive and a very close cousin to the Vertex EX.
The OCZ Technology forum is also a great place to start if you are researching solid state drives since it has one of the largest user groups to date.
OCZ Technology has also announced they will be publically displaying next generation products based on Marvell technology at CES 2010.
