Skyera Named One of World’s Most-Innovative Emerging Companies by the World Summit on Innovation & Entrepreneurship

San Jose, Calif. – July 31, 2012 – Skyera Inc., founded by an executive and engineering team with unsurpassed backgrounds in the solid-state, storage and networking arenas, today announced that it has been named a Global Hot 100 Company by The World Summit on Innovation & Entrepreneurship (THEWSIE), which recognizes the world’s most-innovative 100 emerging companies.

Launched at the United Nations in 2006 under the support of key multinationals, The World Summit on Innovation & Entrepreneurship focuses on a vision of what’s yet to come in lifestyle, health, energy, cities, technology, education and communication, and inspires and empowers knowledge leaders, aspiring entrepreneurs, government officials and established enterprises. Summit partners include Deloitte, Dassault Systemes, Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development, MIT Enterprise Forum, and Akira Foundation. More info can be found at www.thewsie.org.

Skyera will be recognized for its achievement at the Summit’s biennial event in Boston Sept. 26-28.  The company will take place in THEWSIE’s Global Hot 100 Innovation Showcase in the Future Pavilion, which features the most-fascinating enterprises and next-generation solutions that are changing the world.

“We are proud to announce the inclusion of Skyera as one of the World Summit’s Global Hot enterprises. Skyera posses the innovation will and technology skills to lower the world power consumption by 1%, serving as the catalyst for disrupting the future of the storage industry.” said Sam Hamdan, CEO of tranzishen, and the Chairman and Chief Architect of The World Summit.

Skyera is providing global innovation through the development of disruptive system-level solid-state storage technology that combines storage and networking to achieve greater speed, reliability and efficiency than both traditional and solid state solutions on the market today. By building an entirely new architecture from the ground up, rather than taking an incremental approach, Skyera will fully leverage the benefits of next-generation flash memory while overcoming the limitations faced by solution vendors that shoehorn SSD devices into existing systems.

“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the world’s most-innovative companies by an organization like THEWSIE that fosters innovation the world over,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Skyera CEO. “By enabling a large class of applications with unparalleled high performance, exceptionally lower power consumption and density at a price equivalent to currently available hard disk drive-based enterprise SANs, Skyera’s enterprise systems are leading the emerging solid state storage sector.  We look forward to showcasing our innovation at this year’s Summit.”
