OCZ Technology Signs SED International To Distribute Consumer-Based Solid-State Drives In Latin America And The Caribbean

Stocks in this article: OCZ SED

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that SED International (Amex: SED), an established multinational distributor of leading computer technology products, is now authorized to distribute OCZ’s complete line of consumer-based SSDs in Latin America and the Caribbean. This includes OCZ’s popular SATA-based Vertex and Agility SSD Series, the PCIe-based RevoDrive SSD Series, and the recently announced Vector SSD Series featuring OCZ’s new Barefoot 3 controller that delivers advanced I/O performance and enhanced endurance for personal computing environments.

The distribution agreement with OCZ represents SED International’s first SSD brand for the Latin American region providing an alternative storage technology to hard disk drives (HDDs) given today’s performance disparity between servers and HDDs. As data traffic continues to exponentially increase, the mechanical and physical limitations of HDDs result in system bottlenecks that compromise the end user experience necessitating the need for faster, more reliable storage solutions.

“As one of the first major providers of solid-state drives with a rich history of technological innovations, OCZ became our SSD vendor of choice as they offer a well-rounded consumer portfolio focused on high-performance, improved reliability and greater affordability,” said Ronell Rivera, Senior Vice President-Latin America for SED International. “We are very pleased to partner with OCZ as a key strategic distributor in the region and with a rich line-card that extends to high-performance enterprise applications, enables the partnership to grow into other areas of the data center.”

“We are pleased to build upon our distribution strategy in Latin America and the Caribbean with such a high-profile and customer-oriented value-added distributor as SED International,” said E. Zeke Olazaba, Director of Sales-Latin America for OCZ Technology. “The combination of our reseller programs, coupled with extensive service and support and a comprehensive product line-up, will help SED expand its storage solutions presence in a burgeoning region.”
