San Jose, Calif.– Skyera Inc., founded by an executive and engineering team with unsurpassed backgrounds in the NAND flash, solid-state, storage and networking arenas, today announced that beta unit shipments of its skyHawk series of enterprise solid-state storage systems have been successfully implemented at a variety of organizations looking to leverage the solution’s next-generation enterprise computing capabilities.
The higher-than-anticipated demand for skyHawk enterprise solid-state storage systems has resulted in a raised sales forecast and rapid expansion of operational capabilities as the company prepares to make its systems generally available to the public. Priced at an industry breakthrough price point of less than $3 per gigabyte, skyHawk marks the first time that the latest generation 19/20nm solid-state technology can be used as a direct replacement for traditional enterprise hard disk-based systems.
Skyera’s skyHawk has received industry acclaim as a visionary and innovative product, substantiating Skyera’s approach to mainstream enterprise solid-state storage. Its SEOS™ solid-state operating system combines hardware, storage and data management into a unified solution that provides top performance, cost and power consumption attributes.
By introducing a solution that represents a 95% reduction in space and and power consumption over equivalent hard disk-based systems, Skyera is changing the face of the data center. Two PBs of disk storage would normally require up to 12 or more racks to house the thousands of drives needed to attain this capacity. Equivalent capacity on skyHawk systems would require less than a rack – a significant reduction of floor space and operational expenses.
“The amount of capacity installed in such a short period of time has convinced us that skyHawk satisfies a need in the marketplace and is a solution that many organizations truly desire,” said Radoslav Danilak, CEO of Skyera. “A revolution in the industry is coming and we are working hard to make sure it gets here as soon as possible for as many enterprise customers that are interested in leveraging the price/performance attributes of our solution.”
Skyera Inc. is a disruptive provider of enterprise solid-state storage systems designed to enable a large class of applications with extraordinarily high performance, exceptionally lower power consumption and cost effectiveness relative to existing enterprise storage systems. Founded by the executives who previously developed the world's most-advanced flash memory controller, Skyera is backed by key technology and financial partnerships designed to position it at the forefront of the hyper growth in the solid-state storage sector. The company was chosen by Flash Memory Summit as a Best of Show award winner for 2012 in the category of Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application.
