Leading Merchandise Optimization Software Company Realizes $120K in Savings via Nexenta Open Software-Defined Storage Solutions

Revionics Achieves Rapid Scalability to Meet Growing Business Needs and Support Retail Customers Worldwide

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—December 12, 2016 Nexenta (@Nexenta),the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that Revionics, a proven leader in end-to-end merchandise optimization solutions,leveraged NexentaStor to achieve rapid scalability at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO)to support their growing customer base.

Revionics’ customer base includes leading retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods, Michael’s Stores and Cabela’s, which require the support of robust systems for their price, promotion and markdown optimization capabilities delivered via SaaS, using science-based predictive analytics. Revionics was traditionally a storage attached network (SAN) vendor shop, relying on various storage solutions to support customer data.Revionics wanted a longer-term solution that could scale robustly to keep pace with the growth of both their customer base and in data volumes from existing customers. Revionics lookedforalternative storage solutions that scale on a shelf-by-shelf and head-by-head basis, remove the required minimum buy-in cost of a traditional SAN purchase, and deliver a seamless transition that maintains performance levels and reduces TCO.

Sunny Nair, VP of Information Technology (IT) at Revionics, was familiar with Nexenta,andhe also evaluated other software-defined storage (SDS) solutions from established vendors.Revionics selected Nexenta because of its maturity in the SDS space; an estimated drastically lower TCO; and increased performance with less requiredconfiguration. Revionicsinitially deployed NexentaStor to support an additional 20-30 TB of customer data by simply purchasing and adding a Nexenta shelf to their existing system. Subsequently, Revionicstransitioned to solid state disk (SSD) and purchased two more Nexenta storage units for ultra-high performance.

“The IOPs have been phenomenal,” saidNair. “We didn’t need to buy one of the high-end SSD systems because Nexenta was experimenting with SSD as well; their engineering team was instrumental in helping us build out our SSD.”

Revionics realized immediate benefits from their NexentaStor integration, achieving unmatched performance levels at scale and a calculated $120K in savings, all without any transition time or inconvenience to their IT team. Revionics’ customers are also realizing benefits of the Nexenta integration. NexentaStor allows the Revionics IT team to turn up the performance, as needed, when configuring customer systems and to remain competitive in pricing, thanks in part to the cost savings.

“If we hadn’t selected Nexenta, with the same $135K we spent, we would have only been able to buy half the storage, which would have potentially diminished our business scalability,” said Nair.

“As complex technologies such as SaaS and predictive analytics continue to advance, companies are forced to meet the demands of unprecedented data growth, which legacy storage solutions cannot support,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta. “We worked with the Revionics team to configure a system that could support their customers’ robust systems with the flexibility to scale as their data and customer volumes continue to grow.”
