Leading OCZ Enterprise-Class SATA-based Deneva 2 SSDs Now Qualified on NETGEAR’s ReadyDATA™ 516 NAS Device

SAN JOSE, CA – May 20, 2013 – / — OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that its 100GB SATA III enterprise-class Deneva 2 SSDs are now qualified on NETGEAR® (NasdaqGM:NTGR) ReadyDATA™ 516 networked-attached storage devices.  Announced on May 7, 2013, the ReadyDATA 516 is a 6-bay desktop NAS device designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) without a data center or for branch offices requiring powerful on-site storage capabilities.  Delivering complete ‘data center storage in a box’ functionality, NETGEAR’s ReadyDATA 516 enables simplified storage at a price that is cost-effective for even the smallest business sites.

The ability to provide simplified, cost-efficient storage for business customers through a high-performance, enterprise-class, SATA III flash-based drive was a priority for NETGEAR in their selection of OCZ’s Deneva 2 SSDs.  SMBs looking to meet capacity requirements and boost performance require advanced features, like ReadyDATA’s SSD caching, which automatically copies frequently accessed data to SSDs.  The high-performing Deneva 2 drives are ideally suited for the ReadyDATA 516 platform delivering up to 80,000 IOPS performance (random 4K writes), a maximum throughput up to 550 MB/s with support for 100GB capacities in a 2.5-inch eMLC NAND format.  Providing power loss data protection, strong error correction for enhanced data integrity and data fail recovery provides the superior endurance and reliability that ReadyDATA 516 customers require.

“We are very pleased that our Deneva 2 SSDs are qualified on NETGEAR’s ReadyDATA 516 platform enabling small businesses to improve IT efficiency and reduce the risk of data loss as a result of a disaster, human error or system interruption,” said Wayne B. Eisenberg, Senior VP of Sales for OCZ Technology.  “We anticipate that the ReadyDATA 516 device provides the desktop storage capabilities that this business segment requires and should enhance NETGEAR’s position as one of the leading NAS vendors worldwide.”

“The OCZ Deneva 2 SSDs help to provide our ReadyDATA 516 customers with the performance benefits of hybrid storage and advanced data management features in a small form factor that is cost-effective and easy-to-use,” said Matt Pahnke, Senior Product manager for NETGEAR Storage.  “The ability for small businesses to achieve high I/O access, accelerated application performance and data protection were key capabilities in the selection of OCZ drives into the ReadyDATA 516 platform.”
