Nexenta to Demonstrate Open Source-Driven Software-Defined Data Center Solutions at Cisco Live 2015

Santa Clara, Calif.—June 8, 2015—Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced its participation in Cisco Live 2015, including a live demo of the Multi-Tenant File and Block Services on the Cisco UCS Server.

Service providers are leading the way in the transition to the Software-Defined Data Center but it is the customers that drive the security and infrastructure needs of these providers.  Having storage isolation and flexibility with the cloud is key for most hybrid cloud customers. Utilizing the NexentaStor solution both for backend file and block services, service providers and enterprises can gain independence from the vendor lock-in of traditional storage.  Combine this with the Nexenta Virtual NAS solutions, and customers can manage and provision file and block services within their own virtual realm. The advanced memory architecture of the Cisco UCS Server solutions allow for more virtual servers and virtual NAS per host providing for a lower total cost and higher density of VMs than with traditional commodity hardware.

Nexenta’s technical team will demonstrate these benefits throughout the conference at Booth #1225 on the Cisco Live exhibition floor. The demonstration will feature the Multi-Tenant Virtual NAS and NexentaStor, displaying NexentaStor running on the Cisco UCS platform.  Additionally, we’ll be highlighting integration with VMware vSphere, vCenter, vCenter plugins and VSAN.

The company will also be offering raffle tickets to booth attendees for a chance to win an Apple Watch. The drawing will take place on Wednesday, June 10, at 5:00pm PDT in Nexenta booth #1225.
