With best in class VMware integration, NexentaStor is designed with a multi-tenant VMware vCenter Plug-in and VMware Virtual Volume (VVOL) support. The VMware vCenter Web Client Plugin simplifies day-to-day operational tasks for VMware Administrators by allowing customers to incrementally scale storage by adding datastores from within the vCenter interface, identifying performance bottlenecks and reviewing capacity utilization trends.

Integration with vCenter’s role-based authentication mechanism provides an added level of segmentation and security options for multi-tenant solutions, branch offices and even departmental storage solutions. It is a perfect complement for NexentaStor 5.0 VMware Virtual Volume support, allowing all storage operations on NexentaStor to be performed with Virtual Machine granularity.

We also offer advanced support for Docker, via the Docker volume driver, and full support for OpenStack, with OpenStack Cinder drivers for iSCSI and NFS for a broad set of OpenStack releases, you are able to easily snap in NexentaStor into a variety of use cases and take advantage of the innovation happening in the data center.
