Nexenta to Present on Leveraging Lenovo Solutions with Open Source-Driven Software-Defined Storage at the Lenovo Server Roadshows

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—August 9, 2016— Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced its participation and sponsorship of four upcoming Server Roadshows presented by Lenovo.

In March 2016, Nexenta and Lenovo announced a strategic partnership as part of Lenovo’s StorSelect program and introduced the Lenovo Storage DX8200N powered by NexentaStor solution, integrating Nexenta’s award-winning, software-defined storage with Lenovo x86 servers. The combined solutions offer Lenovo customers both scale-up and scale-out reference architectures on all flash, hybrid, and spinning media systems. At the Lenovo Server Roadshows, Nexenta will discuss the ways in which their partnership with Lenovo has enabled the successful implementation of powerful products to simplify IT infrastructure, reduce costs and increase reliability, in the face of industry transformation.

Lenovo server roadshows are one day conferences that bring together Lenovo customers and partners looking for ways to handle growing demands on their technology infrastructure and the growing costs associated with maintaining it. Speakers will educate partners and customers on the Lenovo enterprise story and provide awareness of the data center market. There will be a product onsite with virtual tours and demos of all Lenovo products, integrated throughout the various presentations.
