Toshiba purchase of OCZ finalized, first new products released

Toshiba’s purchase of bankrupt SSD manufacturer OCZ, announced last December, has been completed. The acquisition means that both OCZ’s consumer and enterprise products will remain on the market.

What was once OCZ Technology Group is now OCZ Storage Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Toshiba. “Substantially all” of OCZ’s assets are now owned by Toshiba, and OCZ will retain its headquarters in San Jose and its design centers in California, Israel, and the UK.

The bankruptcy and subsequent sale appear to have done little to interrupt OCZ’s operations. The company today announced the latest generation of Vertex-branded SSDs, the Vertex 460. The SATA disks are available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities, with sequential read and write speeds of 525MBps and 525MBps, respectively; integrated AES-256 encryption; and an endurance of 20GB per day of writes for three years.
