Skyera skyHawk Now Shipping in Volume
Press release date: April 30, 2014
San Jose, Calif. – Skyera Inc., founded by an executive and engineering team with unsurpassed backgrounds in the solid-state, storage and networking arenas, today announced volume shipments of its groundbreaking skyHawk, expanding the reach of the all-flash enterprise solid-state storage system to broader customer bases looking to improve their productivity at a price point comparable to legacy spinning disk storage arrays.
Skyera’s skyHawk has received numerous industry acclaims as a visionary and innovative product, substantiating the company’s approach to mainstream enterprise solid-state storage. The skyHawk serves as a direct replacement for traditional spinning disk arrays, bringing unparalleled performance, efficiency and flash capacity to target applications, while consuming less power and floor space.
Since its initial launch, skyHawk’s distribution has been limited to select customers in order to ensure optimal customer experience and supply. Now shipping in volume, skyHawk is well positioned to bring improvements in productivity and competitive advantage to a large number of organizations.
Leveraging a system-wide design approach and the most advanced NAND flash available, skyHawk delivers unprecedented density and efficiency to mitigate the expense of explosive data growth. Combining that with Skyera’s feature rich SeOS software stack, skyHawk delivers superior customer benefits on many fronts.
“The interest in solid-state storage solutions continues to build, but until the debut of the affordable skyHawk, many organizations simply didn’t have the financial resources to replace their legacy disk-based storage systems with an all-flash array,” said Radoslav Danilak, CEO of Skyera. “Initially, we rolled out skyHawk to select enterprise customers and government organizations; the product received enthusiastic feedback and we are very confident in opening up availability of skyHawk to customers looking to benefit from its unprecedented density and efficiency.”
