Nexenta Sponsors OpenZFS Developer Summit for Second Year

Software-Defined Storage Leader Key Player in OpenZFS Movement

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – November 6, (5am) 2014 — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage), today announced sponsorship support for the second annual OpenZFS Developer Summit in San Francisco, CA, November 10-11, 2014.   Nexenta is continuing their support as returning sponsors from the inaugural summit.  Nexenta’s Saso Kiselkov also will present a session on Compression on Monday, November 10, 2014 at the Children’s Creativity Museum.

Nexenta is proud to sponsor lunch for both days of the event on Monday, November 10, 2014 at the Children’s Creativity Museum, 221 Fourth St., San Francisco, CA, and Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at Delphix office, 604 Mission St., San Francisco, CA.  In addition, Nexenta is sponsoring prizes for the Hackathon on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. The goals of the OpenZFS  (#openzfs) 2014 Hackathon are to collaborate with and connect ZFS engineers and to start work on some of the projects that OpenZFS would like to accomplish, including projects begun at last year’s inaugural event.

Nexenta has been a pioneer in using ZFS for its Software-Defined Storage portfolio. OpenZFS combines DRAM, flash, and hard disk drives to achieve the right balance of cost and performance for any given working set, while reducing the need for administrators to constantly monitor storage for I/O bottlenecks. By reducing both read and write latency with the use of flash in a ZFS hybrid storage pool, Nexenta ends up with a system that performs far better than legacy storage systems, while having a much lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
