SANTA CLARA, CA and LONDON, UK – August 24, 2016 Nexenta (@Nexenta) the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that it is a gold sponsor of Dell's EMEA Be Future Ready ‘16 City Tour, alongside technology partner SanDisk, a Western Digital Corporation brand.

Covering 38 cities across 19 countries, Dell’s EMEA Be Future Ready ‘16 City Tour will bring together industry experts and the leading technology organisations to showcase, demonstrate and discuss the latest trends and innovations that are shaping the ‘future-ready’ enterprise. The one day event will split its focus between five business themes;

  • The enterprise-wide orientation towards IT-as-a-service
  • Metric-based service-centric IT
  • Cross-functional teams and their enablement
  • Increasing visibility of end-to-end IT service
  • Implementing consistent vendor selection processes and criteria

As joint gold sponsors, Nexenta and SanDisk will co-exhibit at each event, providing attendees with the opportunity to discover how Nexenta’s growing portfolio of industry disrupting OpenSDS solutions is leading the charge towards the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). Nexenta executives will also be on-hand to discuss how the SDS solutions are freeing businesses from the expensive shackles of vendor lock-in, while providing storage architectures with unparalleled reliability, agility and scalability.

Alongside SanDisk, Nexenta will also be presenting at a number of the events. Attendees will be able to hear first-hand how the companies’ flagship technologies have been combined to create the NexentaStor/SanDisk® InfiniFlashTM storage solution, the industry’s first all-flash SDS offering. In addition, Nexenta will demonstrate the power of NexentaEdge, its award-winning block and object storage platform, which has recently received significant enhancements for seamless integration with OpenStack and Docker environments.
