Nexenta Implements Software-Defined Storage (SDS) Platform for Leading Cloud Infrastructure Provider

ServerCentral Deploys NexentaStor for SDS Service

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – December 4, 2014 — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage), today announced the deployment and case study for ServerCentral.  Recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in America for five consecutive years, Chicago-based ServerCentral is an established provider of IT infrastructure solutions.

Working with a number of other storage solutions, ServerCentral has a great deal of experience in this area. The growing demand for elastic, highly scalable storage presented the perfect opportunity for ServerCentral to add SDS to their toolkit.

Having a scalable solution in place to handle dynamic storage demands was one of the main benefits to deploying NexentaStor.

“Given the nature of our business, we have to think three to five years out,” said George Nelson, Managed Services Manager at ServerCentral. “Growing demand for elastic, highly scalable storage is the perfect opportunity for us to add Nexenta’s SDS platform to our managed service offerings.”

NexentaStor is now available across multiple locations, with petabytes of data under management.

“ServerCentral has built a successful and growing business helping meet the high availability needs for an impressive roster of customers," said Craig Cagle, VP/GM Americas, Nexenta. “We are very pleased to be able to work with ServerCentral and help provide a solution that is both scalable and economical.”
