Skyera Inc. has revealed that it has selected 16nm NAND Flash from SK hynix for its new skyEagle all-Flash enterprise storage array. SK hynix innovations in NAND process and design are key factors to enabling high performance and reliable 16nm Flash comparable to 20nm offerings.

"We believe that building a strategic partnership with Skyera will open a new window to bring broad and deep expertise in Flash technology system-level issues to complement the world-class semiconductor excellence of SK hynix," said Young Joon Choi, Senior Vice President of SK hynix. "This pairing ensures that the industry's very best Flash technology experts will be guiding this collaboration as the two companies continue to produce Flash chips and systems that raise the bar for the rest of the market."

"This is an exciting partnership that combines the expertise of one of the leaders in NAND Flash and the leader in all-Flash enterprise storage systems to ensure that the technology is optimised for new generations of enterprise applications," said Radoslav Danilak, CEO of Skyera. "The information exchange between Skyera's team of elite Flash storage system designers and the chip design expertise and cutting-edge manufacturing process optimisation of SK hynix offers staggering potential for the future of enterprise Flash storage."

Skyera's third-generation adaptive Flash controller, as implemented in the company's new skyEagle solid-state array, provides a 5 year Flash life cycle at a price point now even lower than HDD-based enterprise storage arrays. To achieve comparable performance and durability with conventional Flash controllers requires other array vendors to use older generation, more expensive eMLC or SLC Flash and sacrifice the density and capacity of the newest 16nm Flash chips.
