Nexenta’s products are being embedded into a growing set of products and solutions created and sold by hardware vendors, software developers, systems integrators, OEMs, and resellers. Nexenta products are available in many languages and character sets, and are sold worldwide.

Nexenta’s core storage platform, NexentaStor™, is a software-only storage operating system and a storage-optimized file system based on OpenSolaris / OpenStorage ZFS technology. With this unique combination, Nexenta products provide unparalleled capabilities in managing multi-vendor environments, extreme efficiencies in storage administration and management, and core storage capabilities for content management, compliance, and more.


In 2005, founders Alex Aizman and Dmitry Yusupov saw an opportunity to pioneer components of Linux with the OpenSolaris and Open Storage codebases and founded Nexenta. These products were among the first open source storage products to be brought to market in mid-2008.
