Nexenta Continues Asia Pacific Market Expansion via Partnership with the Leading Systems Integrator

Nexenta and Asiasoft Solutions Partner to Provide Scalable Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage Solutions for Fast-growing Cloud Deployments

SANTA CLARA, Calif.— October 26, 2015 — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that leading System Integrator and Cloud Specialist, Asiasoft (@scalenow), will be deploying Nexenta products across the Asia/Pacific region.   Asiasoft is a top integrator for enterprise virtual technologies and environments, including VMware and Citrix. Deployments will begin with NexentaStor and expand to include the entire Nexenta product line.

Asiasoft Solutions provides cloud infrastructure, virtualization and end user computing solutions to enterprise and mid-size companies with an average of 200-500 end users that are experiencing tremendous data growth.  As a result, they need scalable solutions that allow them to get the biggest return possible for each dollar spent on storage. Traditional storage vendors’ solutions, once adequate in the past, are no longer viable for these dynamic, multi-platform environments. They are also expensive and have rigid architectures.

“Nexenta’s unique approach to Software-Defined Storage fits our existing client engagement strategy for our clients in the government, healthcare, media, and research industries” said Moses Yeo, Sales Director at Asiasoft. “All of our customers across the board are demanding products that help them with cloud-based data growth. It’s forcing them to think differently about how storage should be acquired, deployed and used. NexentaStor will allow us to deliver end-to-end virtualization solutions for our clients, offering cost-effective solutions for customers with large capacity requirements of 100 TB and above.  The combination of performance, flexibility and scalability at an excellent price gives us a strong advantage over our competitors.  Nexenta is the perfect answer for both our customers and for Asiasoft.”

Nexenta’s support for a variety of storage protocols and file types, including NFS, CIFS, SAN and NAS allows Asiasoft to more easily deploy NexentaStor across a number of multi-platform environments to improve client value and ROI.

“Working with a top-tier system integrator with tremendous expertise in multi-platform cloud-based environments is giving us inroads throughout the region,” said Anthony Davis, Asia Pacific vice president and general manager at Nexenta. “Asiasoft’s ability to respond quickly to changing customer needs by deploying the latest technology advancements has been a key factor in their success over 10 years in the storage business. We are undertaking several joint deployments and we’re looking forward to many more.”
