In recognition of their partnership, both Nexenta and SanDisk will also showcase the market’s first OpenSDS All-Flash Array. NexentaStor has been integrated with the rack-mountable all-flash InfiniFlash IF100, to provide customers with a pre-tested, full-featured, cost-effective, high-performance system, capable of scaling from 64 Terabyte (TB) to two Petabyte (PB) configurations. This unique software and hardware solution supports a broad range of deployment scenarios and workloads including, virtualization, Big Data analytics, data warehousing, and dynamic modelling, providing enterprise customers with peace of mind and the assurance needed around functionality and performance.

Nexenta will also lead a seminar alongside technology partner, Ascentech. In this session, attendees will discover how NexentaStor, the market-leading block and file SDS solution, delivers the ideal storage foundation for any workload across the enterprise. Based on the ZFS file system, the file configuration that has been proven and trusted to support mission critical storage deployments, the OpenSDS solution standardizes traditional storage hardware. This means NexentaStor and, therefore, the same x86 servers can be deployed to all potential workloads, delivering users more powerful and fluid infrastructure, but at a fraction of the traditional cost.
