NexentaStor and NexentaEdge with vCloud Air Integration Honored for Superior Innovation in Hybrid Cloud Deployments

SANTA CLARA, CA – November 18, 2015 — / — Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named both NexentaStor and NexentaEdge with vCloud Air integration as 2015 Cloud Computing Storage Excellence Award winners presented by TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine.

The Cloud Storage Excellence Award recognizes companies that have introduced or improved cloud storage solutions.

“We are grateful to once again to be recognized by TMC for our continuous dedication to providing organizations with software-defined-storage solutions through virtualization in the cloud,” said Michael Letschin, Field Chief Technology Officer, Nexenta. “NexentaStor and NexentaEdge with vCloud Air integration leverages both Nexenta and VMware’s leading technology, providing customers with the scalability and accessibility of pure hybrid cloud deployments at a low cost.”

NexentaStor and NexentaEdge can now seamlessly integrate with the latest vCloud Suite, enabling deployments on vCloud ® Air™ to provide true hybrid cloud storage solutions. Current VMware and Nexenta customers can transition existing storage environments to the cloud, creating a virtualized infrastructure and increasing scalability and growth, without purchasing additional hardware. New customers with growing data volumes or backup and recovery needs can avoid purchasing expensive hardware and will benefit from deployment speeds of minutes and hours, versus adding new servers. Additionally, Nexenta delivers the first object storage integration available on vCloud via NexentaEdge. With the introduction of this integration, customers can now deploy their entire storage environments within the cloud, paving the way to a completely virtualized and software-defined data center.

“Congratulations to Nexenta for its ability to show maturity and expansion of the cloud storage market through innovation and product quality,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We are pleased to present NexentaStor and NexentaEdge with vCloud Air Integration with a Cloud Storage Excellence Award for its commitment to advancing cloud storage solutions.”
