“Nexenta’s partnership with Dell is providing our customers the flexibility and scalability they require. Software-Defined Storage is the most efficient and cost effective way to manage data.

Stephane Armanet, System Administrator, Institut Laue-Langevin comments: "We were looking for a storage solution that could scale out as we grew. Dell, who already worked closely with the institute, suggested that Nexenta’s Software-Defined Storage (SDS) combined with its servers could provide the solution we needed. As a Nexenta partner, Dell was well aware of the software’s capabilities and its suitability for our requirements. The result is a storage solution that can manage data efficiently and cost effectively."
