Beginning in 2004, Alex Aizman and Dmitry Yusupov wrote the iSCSI storage stack, as well as founding the Open iSCSI development community (http://www.open-iscsi.org). In 2005, they saw the opportunity to pioneer by combining components of Linux with the OpenSolaris and Open Storage codebases and founded Nexenta. As a result of being one of the earliest companies to work in this area, Nexenta’s products were among the first open source storage products to be brought to market in mid-2008.
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, NexentaStor delivers ease-of-use and developer friendly aspects in tandem with the power and scalability needed for enterprise class storage.
