LONGMONT, CO, January 12, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Burlywood, Inc., a tech firm specializing in innovative data storage solutions today announces its new FlashOS is designed with Microchip’s Flashtec™ third generation NVMe 3016 Controller. The technology enables leading enterprises and data centers to realize the highest-performance Solid-State Drives (SSDs) utilizing next-generation NAND technologies.

We are the right SSD solution for organizations striving to drive every millisecond of latency out of their storage system performance, being impacted by spikes in latency, and requiring consistent performance over life. Organizations also benefit when experiencing drive failures too early in the life of their drives or are frustrated by the costs of over-provisioning. These are impacts that cannot be tolerated by organizations running virtual machines, AI, or content-rich applications. Improve the performance of your storage solution with a workload-aware SSD.

“Our FlashOS architecture provides best TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and QoS (Quality of Service) for real-world production applications, while Microchip’s high-performance Flashtec NVMe Controllers offer a programmable architecture to optimize product differentiation through firmware customization,” says Tod Earhart, Founder & CTO, Burlywood. “Together, we offer an SSD with the industry’s lowest write amplification, resulting in lower latency and higher performance through the life of a drive.”

Sustainability and future-proofed performance is the foundation of Burlywood’s architecture and Microchip’s Flashtec™ Controller in the design. In addition to high performance technology, Burlywood offers outstanding technical support along with dependable delivery and quality. Whether you are an SSD provider or build your own in-house SSD, the FlashOS architecture offers real-world application performance to validate your end-product.

Microchip’s Flashtec NVMe 3016 Controller can achieve greater than 2 million random read IOPS on 4 KB operations and supports U.2, U.3, add-in card, EDSFF and custom form factors. The device is equipped with SLC, MLC, Enterprise MLC, TLC and QLC Flash with Toggle and ONFI interface and PCIe® Gen 4 x8 or dual independent PCIe Gen 4 x4 (active, active/standby) host interface.

“Continuous innovation in the storage industry is vital to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Pete Hazen, corporate vice president of Microchip’s data center solutions business unit. “Our collaboration with Burlywood demonstrates our commitment to enable SSD solutions that deliver high performance for real-world applications through a flexible architecture and innovative technology.”

“In our commitment to industry innovation, working with Microchip enables us to offer custom solutions that truly provide the best-performing SSDs at the best endurance,” says Jay Bradley, Chief Revenue Officer and VP of Customer Success, Burlywood. “Together we are committed to serve the industry and address the unmet requirements for rapidly growing data storage. And we have a shared value for ensuring supply chain diversification.”
