Denver, CO, August 18, 2022 – Burlywood, a tech firm specializing in innovative data storage solutions, is proud to announce the launch of FlashOS™, the industry’s first Software Defined SSD for cloud and data centers that now offers the longest-lasting drive performance in the industry.
FlashOS offers a solution to deteriorating SSD performance and enables better production application performance. The product provides a flash firmware architecture that analyzes application behavior at the flash controller level, tunes SSD performance, and offers features to create a perfect fit for the application.
“FlashOS will transform what the industry expects from an SSD and ignite the next wave in data center storage innovation,” said Burlywood CEO Mike Jones. “We are exceptionally proud to offer this innovative solution to data centers everywhere struggling to realize the promise of flash storage.”
“In the market today, data center workloads are not being met,” said Burlywood CTO Tod Earhart. “We are excited to bring FlashOS to cloud and data centers that are tired of simply accepting SSD performance failure rates.”
FlashOS offers several innovative features including:
- New Self-Adaptive Architecture driven by real production workload analysis, provides visibility for data placement intelligence to optimize performance and efficiency
- Data Stream splitting to NAND Physical Partitions minimizes the noisy neighbor problem
- Longest lasting drive performance in the world.
- Best in class latency consistency, eliminating latency spikes
- Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through higher Endurance
- Advanced software algorithms with a flexible base, enables rapid adaptation to changing production workloads
- Best performing applications in write-heavy workload environments
A premier European storage manufacturer was the first to embrace FlashOS before its public release.
Their production SSD is specifically designed and optimized for typical Data Center workloads. It delivers 2x-5x better consistent steady state performance with a steady state, consistent latency, and endurance over its life under Real World, Complex Workloads without any host modifications.
Customers realize 2x greater drive endurance resulting in a significant reduction in drive replacements over the life of the platform.
Burlywood is committed to transforming the SSD industry from a hardware-centric, one-size-fits-all market to software-defined flash solutions that optimize the needs of individual applications. Burlywood’s patented firmware features combine to provide the innovation needed to address the performance and endurance requirements of the most demanding applications.
Customers can realize the benefits of FlashOS in two different ways. The first is buying SSD drives directly from one of the manufacturers using our controller in their SSDs. The second is by Licensing Flash OS and using Burlywood’s SSD reference design to have one of our contract manufacturing partners build SSD to their specifications.
