Customers can count on Dell and Nexenta to help them in their journey.”

“We were looking for a storage solution that could scale out as we grew. Dell, who already worked closely with the institute, suggested that Nexenta’s Software-Defined Storage (SDS) combined with its servers could provide the solution we needed.

The result is a storage solution that can manage data efficiently and cost effectively."
