Nimbus Data Partners with SK Hynix

Nimbus Data announced a strategic supply and technology alliance with SK Hynix, one of the world’s top suppliers of cutting-edge NAND flash.

Nimbus Data, developer of ExaFlash™, the world’s most advanced flash memory platform for cloud infrastructure and big data, today announced a strategic supply and technology alliance with SK Hynix, one of the world’s top suppliers of cutting-edge NAND flash.

“ExaFlash is the most scalable all-flash array ever conceived, incorporating up to 276,480 NAND dies, or 4.5 petabytes of raw flash memory, in one fully-redundant system,” stated Thomas Isakovich, CEO and Founder of Nimbus Data. “Our alliance with SK Hynix on NAND flash supply ensures that we can meet the needs of our Tier 1 customers, including leading Web properties, media/entertainment companies, and service providers, with the highest capacity, greatest energy efficiency, and lowest cost per gigabyte.”

The ExaFlash platform offers virtually infinite on-demand scalability, 95% lower energy consumption, unmatched multiprotocol support, and over 50x greater rack density, all at less than half the cost of competing approaches. At the high end, the ExaFlash D-series incorporates 4.5 petabytes (4,500,000 gigabytes) in a fully-redundant 4U form factor, a configuration that would require over 250 U (62x more rack space) with competing scale-out all-flash arrays.

“Our strategic partnership with Nimbus Data will help accelerate flash adoption as a true cost-comparable capacity-superior replacement of traditional hard drive-based arrays,” stated YR Kim, Vice President at SK Hynix. “We are delighted to partner with Nimbus Data’s innovative team to further push the envelope of all-flash scalability, energy efficiency, and data center density, the three factors most critical in reshaping tomorrow’s data center.”
