"Revenue and gross margins declined in the second quarter as revenue for our client SSD products continued to be impacted by our challenges in procuring flash. Revenue from our enterprise solutions accounted for roughly half of our SSD revenue, compared to about 60% in the first quarter, as a major data center customer completed its installation during the quarter," said Ralph Schmitt, CEO of OCZ Technology. "This has been a difficult quarter as demand for our products continues to be greater than our ability to supply, given our capital constraints."
"Over the course of the quarter we continued to add strategic channel partners that help extend the reach of both our high-end client products and enterprise solutions worldwide. During the second fiscal quarter we also announced the general availability of our PCIe-based ZD-XL SQL accelerator which is a new way for OCZ to go to market with a total solution consisting of both our enterprise solid state storage and virtualization software. This innovative product is primarily targeted at our channel partners and offers an optimized plug-and-play storage system solution for enterprise customers," added Schmitt.
