This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2017.04.18
ZeroStack Inc. and Nexenta Systems, Inc., announced a joint solution that integrates ZeroStack's Intelligent Cloud Platform with Nexenta's storage systems to create a pre-tested, automated, and supported converged private cloud solution.
With this solution, enterprises and MSPs can leverage Nexenta's hardware and protocol-agnostic software-defined storage (SDS) portfolio, delivering freedom from storage hardware vendor lock-in, to build a resilient and performing cloud for application development, running packaged enterprise applications and hosting.
Combined ZeroStack/Nexenta solution offers these advantages:
- Nexenta users can plug their storage devices into the ZeroStack Intelligent Cloud Platform via Nexenta's REST API technology to access existing storage resources in a self-driving, on-premises cloud.
- Nexenta provides a multi-site DR solution that can backup ZeroStack cloud data.
"ZeroStack makes on-premises cloud simple and affordable, and this solution allows our customers to combine Nexenta solutions with the ZeroStack platform," said Tarkan Maner, chairman and CEO, Nexenta. "Our OpenSDS solutions give customers the storage agility they need, and ZeroStack's cloud platform extends storage into the cloud for self-service use on a self-healing infrastructure."
Both companies will market the solution to their customers and resellers. With this combined solution, resellers can offer their customers strategic advice on cloud and storage options while retaining customers who might otherwise have no choice but move to a public cloud provider.
"Nexenta has a unique storage solution for enterprises that want high performance and scalability," said Ajay Gulati, CEO and co-founder, ZeroStack. "By combining our products into a single converged solution, we give our customers the fastest, most reliable access to data in a turnkey on-premises cloud solution."
