Nexenta Announces New OpenSDS Innovation For VMware Solutions

Today Nexenta announced innovations for VMware Solutions along with their OpenSDS solutions they plan on showcasing this year at VMworld. These new innovations will enhance interoperability with VMware for Nexenta’s entire portfolio. Nexenta will also be showcasing NexentaStor 5.0.

Nexenta’s flagship SDS solution, NexentaStor, has been successfully deployed in a diverse set of industries, including higher education, hosting, media, and virtual servers. Nexenta has been testing NexentaStor 5.0 through its community preview and will be showcasing it at VMworld. 5.0 will connect NexentaFusion and VMware vCenter Server to deliver simplified deployment, configuration and on-going management of Software-Defined Storage infrastructures.

Nexenta has a new, built-from-the-ground-up, high performance management framework that provides an easy to program, self-documenting REST API for new levels of orchestration and integration with end-user and partner ecosystems. For VMware environments, NexentaStor builds on its existing VAAI Block support with a new vCenter Plug-in. This enables multi-tenant management of NexentaStor systems, deployed on physical hardware or in VMs for easy to scale multi-tenant file services.

At VMworld 2015, Nexenta will showcase:

  • NexentaStor 5.0 and NexentaFusion for simplified management, automation and real-time performance analytics of OpenSDS storage infrastructure
