Nexenta Awarded 2015 InfoTech Spotlight Data Center Excellence Award for Software-Defined Storage Innovation in Partnership with ATTO Technology

NexentaStor MetroHA Recognized for Excellence in Data Center Scalability and Performance

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Jan. 12, 2016 — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named NexentaStor MetroHA as a 2015 Data Center Excellence Award winner, presented by infoTECH Spotlight.

Nexenta and ATTO Technology, a leading storage connectivity and infrastructure solution company, jointly introduced NexentaStor MetroHA in July 2015, delivering unparalleled availability, scalability and performance across multiple data centers. NexentaStor MetroHA serves as a stretch cluster—a cluster configured with host systems located at multiple sites—allowing data to scale across different floors, buildings or cities, located up to 50 kilometers apart. The solution also delivers zero data loss and continuous operations in the event of site failures by synchronously mirroring data between sites.

“We are honored to be continually recognized by TMCnet for storage and data center innovation,” said Thomas Cornely, Chief Product Officer at Nexenta. “By partnering with ATTO Technology to develop NexentaStor MetroHA, we delivered the cost benefits of software-defined storage to business critical applications, ensuring complete data protection while advancing scalability and performance.”

SanDisk, the global leader in flash storage solutions and a proud partner of Nexenta, was also awarded the Data Center Excellence Award for the company’s InfiniFlash™ System. NexentaStor has been integrated with InfiniFlash to create an all-flash joint solution, providing data center customers with a cost-effective, high-performance system for addressing today’s increasing Big Data challenges.  Refer to the SanDisk blog for more info.

The 2015 Data Center Excellence Award recognizes the most innovative and enterprising data center vendors who offer infrastructure or software, servers or cooling systems, cabling or management applications.

“Nexenta has displayed its commitment to quality and innovation in the development of the data center industry,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to witnessing continued excellence from Nexenta and their efforts toward improving the future of the data center industry.”
