SAN JOSE, Calif.—April 5, 2018 — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today launched NexentaCloud, a new product family of cloud native storage solutions. Designed and built as an organic extension of Nexenta’s award-winning Open SDS solution, the new family of solutions allows user to extend the numerous benefits of Nexenta’s solution onto the cloud. The first product to be announced is NexentaCloud available in AWS Marketplace. 

NexentaCloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows enterprises to run their core business applications, which utilize file and block storage native to AWS, while fully integrating with on premises solutions. Offering enterprise-class features such as snapshots, cloning, thin provisioning and data compression, NexentaCloud for AWS delivers a comprehensive data storage solution that supports business-critical functions including business continuity and self-service test/development.

“By further extending our enterprise OpenSDS technology to the cloud, NexentaCloud for AWS lets organizations, especially those who have historically utilized on-premises NAS and SAN server platforms, continue their journey to a hybrid cloud environment,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO at Nexenta. “NexentaCloud is the next step in our vision to disrupt the status quo. NexentaCloud is the next step in our evolution. It enables customers to expand their data storage assets from on-premises to the cloud, and deliver improved manageability, reliability, and scalability with predictive intelligence.”

NexentaCloud for AWS offers a simple and effective way to manage on-premises and cloud based IT infrastructure. It provides:

  • Replication: integrated management of replication and storage operations for all workloads
  • Advanced Analytics Insights: utilizes deep storage analytics across data centers and cloud environments
  • Pre-configured AWS instances: optimized for size and performance
  • Lower TCO: optimizes storage costs with rapid deployment and removal of storage solutions

Nexenta’s uniquely integrated software-only “open source” collaboration is shaking up the storage market with more than 2,000 petabytes of storage under management. NexentaCloud is 100% Software-based and fully supported with enterprise-class support.

"As a modern music company, Ingrooves has been increasingly storing more and more content, and we were looking for a storage solution which also had the right data protection strategy in place," explained Nicolas Ratineau, Director of Systems Engineering for Ingrooves. "With the use of NexentaCloud, combined with NexentaStor on-premise, we are now optimized to remove our older data center from our bottom line costs, and instead utilize the benefits of the public cloud to create a true hybrid strategy. This gives Ingrooves a reliable DR in the cloud model and more importantly a more cost-effective, scalable option to handle growth, a few terabytes at a time."

“NexentaCloud is the next step in the evolution of our OpenSDS journey. Not only does it support numerous use cases including disaster recovery, backup and data protection in the cloud, but it’s so simple to use. Users get one integrated way to replicate and manage their storage operations,” said Michael Letschin, Field Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Nexenta. “The storage analytics we can now offer, work across on-premises and cloud environments, which means users have access to the most in-depth knowledge, creating peace of mind that everything is stored and protected, and most importantly keeps costs optimized. Our customers love it as illustrated by Ingrooves.”

NexentaCloud for AWS is available globally in AWS Marketplace.
