OCZ has given their solid state drive (SSD) availability a huge shot in the arm with the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Taipei today. The new facility is expected to ramp up OCZ's SSD production from 50,000 to 140,000 units a month.
After over tripling their monthly unit sales between Q1 and August this year, OCZ is looking to keep up with that demand. According to Ryan Petersen, CEO of the OCZ Technology Group, "Our new 20,000 square foot facility was set up in response to increased demand from OEMs for our Enterprise Solid State Drive products and significantly increases our monthly SSD capacity." Offering a wide variety of interface choices including SATA, SAS, Fibre Channel, PCI-Express, USB 3.0, and the proprietary High-Speed Data Link (HSDL), OCZ is making a major play in the SSD industry and with the new facility they can only hope to keep the expansion going.
