Dell invests in enterprise flash start-up Skyera

Skyera, a start-up vendor of solid-state storage systems, has closed US$51.6m in financing in a round by a group of investors led by Dell Ventures. This is the company's second round of institutional capital.

 

Skyera market's its storage systems to enterprises that need high-performing energy efficient storage. Examples of appropriate applications are cloud infrastructure, big-data analytics, mobility and social networking.

 

The company said it will use the investment to accelerate the integration of latest-generation flash technology and drive broader adoption of its solutions.

 

Skyera’s skyHawk storage systems are not in general availability yet. They use 19/20-nanometer solid-state technology, which the company says can be used as a direct replacement for traditional enterprise hard-disk-based systems, priced at less than $3 per gigabyte.

 

Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Skyera, said, “Dell and the investment syndicate bring deep knowledge of the storage sector that will be beneficial to Skyera as we take our next steps.”

 

Marius Haas, president of Dell's Enterprise Solutions Group, said Skyera's technology was innovative across the board in storage, including controllers, memory and software. “We are focused on changing the economics of storage and other systems for our customers by bringing high-end enterprise features to the broad mid-market and solving enterprise problems at a mid-range price point,” he said.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
