Skyera, Inc. Key Developments
Skyera Introduces Second-Generation All-Flash Array - skyHawk FS
Oct 29 14
Skyera, Inc. introduced its second-generation solid-state array that allows companies to upgrade their legacy storage platform to flash-based storage at the price of traditional spinning disk technology. Skyera skyHawk FS is purpose-built for high performance and low cost and leverages the most-advanced NAND memory to deliver the high density, lowest power consumption and flash-optimized software features -- all within the industry's smallest footprint. With 136TB of raw flash in a 1U storage system, the skyHawk FS occupies up to 99% less space and consumes as much as 97% less power while achieving price points equivalent to traditional enterprise disk storage systems. Skyera's unique and groundbreaking approach to flash technology allows enterprises to be smarter about how they satisfy their data demands. The solution's small size, weight and power provide measurable OPEX savings while its superior inline hardware-assisted data reduction minimizes storage costs. Unified SAN and NAS in a single platform provides architecture flexibility. The skyHawk FS is designed to enable high performance and low latency to address a broad range of application workloads, including database, server virtualization and Big Data environments. skyHawk FS is the densest solution on the market with up to 136TB of raw flash in 1U. With bandwidth speeds up to 2.4GB/s and up to 400,000 IOPS with microsecond latencies, the skyHawk FS is much faster than disk-based storage solutions. Skyera's latest offering supports both iSCSI and NFS protocols and its lightweight design -- only 25 pounds -- provides unparalleled portability. Skyera skyHawk FS incorporates the Skyera Storage Operating System (SeOS), which offers a wide range of capabilities to access, manage and protect data. The unified all-flash multi-protocol storage solution simplifies storage management infrastructure and minimizes the number of storage systems required, resulting in lower CAPEX and as much as 90%+ reduction in OPEX. Skyera's Life Amplification technology extends the projected life of the flash layer by 100 times while proprietary RAID SE technology protects against any flash chip failure within the unit for increased reliability.
