The Nimbu ExaFlash platform provides almost unlimited on-demand scalability, unmatched support for multiple protocols, 95% lower energy consumption, and 50% greater shelf density, and at less than half the price of competing storage methods . When maxed out, the ExaFlash D-series provides 4.5 petabytes (4,500.00 gigabytes) of raw flash storage in an excessive 4U form factor. This configuration requires more than 250 U (equivalent to 62 X more rack space) with competing flash arrays when scaled to the same capacity.
YR Kim, Vice President at SK Hynix, stated that “Our strategic partnership with Nimbus Data will help accelerate the adoption of flash as an enhanced capacity comparable to traditional superior hard drive replacement We are delighted to partner with Nimbus Data’s innovative team to further push capacity envelope flash, energy efficiency and data center density, the three most important factors in reshaping data centers tomorrow. ” Nimbus Data announced cooperation Flash Supply
