Partnership to Focus on Joint Go-to-Market, Service, and Support of OpenSDS-Based Enterprise Storage Solutions for Fast-Growing, Big Data-Driven Public, Private and Government Clouds
SANTA CLARA, CA – March 30, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), in association with Intel’s Storage Builders Program, today announced a strategic partnership with Lenovo, the world’s number one PC maker and third largest worldwide x86 server provider, to drive broader adoption of next-generation software storage solutions.
“Rapid data growth coupled with modest budget increases are forcing vendors and customers to rethink their storage strategies by leveraging software-based storage as an alternative to traditional storage to meet their business demands,” said Henry Baltazar, Research Director, Storage at 451 Research. “Lenovo is an established server provider with extensive international reach and by now leveraging a partnership with Software-Defined Storage pioneer Nexenta, the company is in a position to offer customers comprehensive storage solutions unavailable via legacy storage companies.”
The companies are working together to introduce solutions that integrate Nexenta’s award-winning, Software-Defined Storage, with Lenovo x86 servers, and joint go-to-market strategies. The combined solutions will offer Lenovo customers worldwide, both scale-up and scale-out reference architectures on all flash, hybrid, and spinning media systems. These solutions with Lenovo’s industry leading service and support will deliver a new standard for Software-Defined Storage.
“We are super excited about our partnership with Lenovo, as they enter the fast-growing and market-disruptive Software-Defined Storage market with a strong server market share and global presence,” said Tarkan Maner, CEO and Chairman at Nexenta. “We believe Lenovo and Nexenta’s partnership around joint go-to-market and service and support will transform the enterprise storage market with an innovative, collaborative, and enterprise-ready Software-Defined Storage vision and execution. They share our passion for providing their customers with a wide range of app and infrastructure-agnostic low-cost, Software-Defined solutions, service, and support delivering total freedom to customers.”
The collaboration between Lenovo and Nexenta offers flexibility to customers and introduces additional options for existing ones, by providing Nexenta customers with a new choice in servers and Lenovo customers with customizable enterprise storage solutions. Lenovo servers with NexentaStor will deliver file and block storage services. The future offerings are planned to expand to include NexentaEdge for scale-out block and object services with cluster-wide inline deduplication and compression.
“Lenovo recognizes Software-Defined Storage as the strategic storage solution to deliver revolutionary economics for enterprise and cloud storage needs,” said David Lincoln, General Manager of the Storage Business Unit at Lenovo. “With Nexenta we will deliver innovative, trusted, and scalable enterprise storage solutions, leveraging Nexenta’s deep storage software R&D skills and Lenovo’s proven enterprise servers. The solutions will give customers the freedom to scale their data to meet business needs today and tomorrow.”
The Lenovo and Nexenta solutions will be based on Lenovo’s award winning System X and NexentaStor, for storage from 100s of terabytes to petabyte scale. These solutions will address storage requirements for a wide range of enterprise workloads including virtualization, OpenStack clouds, general file sharing, and backup and archiving. While pricing will vary on capacity and media types, customers can expect cents per gigabyte for complete systems including 3 years of technical support. NexentaEdge solutions will follow soon thereafter.
