London, UK—10 October 2013—Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage), today announced that it will highlight the benefit and value it brings to virtual storage accelerator (VSA) strategies at VMworld® Europe 2013 (@vmworld) October 14 through 17 at the Fira Gran Via.
Nexenta has been certified as part of the Cisco (@cisco) and VMware (@vmware) reference architecture program which provides a comprehensive environment with compute, networking, storage and virtualisation functionality. Nexenta allows for the ability to deploy the latest virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution which independent tests have shown give improvements in physical SAN data retrieval reduction of up to 38X, in SAN write I/O reduction of up to 2.5x and an outstanding 72 percent increase in VM density per host. Further detail on these results can be found in whitepapers co-developed with Cisco and VMware which include full specifications on the reference architecture.
Nexenta’s VSA for VMware Horizon View™ and NexentaStor™ (#nexentastor) solutions integrate with VMware Horizon View, providing enhanced acceleration for storage infrastructure. This policy-driven, high performance and scalability on-demand approach for VDI environments is easy to use, while delivering a fundamentally lower total cost of ownership for both Desktop-As-A-Service (#desktopasaservice) and enterprise VDI infrastructures.
Nexenta will be showcased at the following VMworld sessions, highlighting the benefits received from the joint VMware-Nexenta solution:
- EUC5708 – Low-Cost, High-Performance Storage for Horizon Desktops.
Wednesday, 16 October. 11:00am-12:00pm
- EUC5434 – Enterprise Architecture Design for VMware Horizon View 5.2.
Wednesday, 16 October. 3:30-4:30pm
“The combination of VMware Horizon View™ and NexentaVSA provides a powerful solution to our customers that can increase performance and reduce costs”, said Erik Frieberg, vice president, Product Marketing, End User Computing, VMware. “Partnering with Nexenta allows our customers to improve the end-user experience without having to worry about underlying infrastructure.”
Visit Nexenta at Hall 8, Booth S-300 where we will be demonstrating the latest Software Defined Storage solutions for virtualisation (#virtualisation) deployments. See how Nexenta’s simple, secure, scalable data centre infrastructure solution works and how that is relevant to today’s storage requirements for the “real” software-defined data centre implementations. (#softwaredefineddatacentre). Nexenta will also be presenting on storage solutions at Dell’s booth each day. Come by to learn how you can incorporate Nexenta’s technology into your storage needs.
“We are excited to be working with Cisco, Dell and VMware on such a powerful offering to the market,” said Bridget Warwick, CMO of Nexenta, “By delivering greater performance, Nexenta and its partners offer powerful value to enterprises, no matter what storage infrastructure they have deployed. The combination of View and VSA for Horizon View truly enables the promise of VDI.”
Nexenta has worked with and provided unified storage solutions for many organisations in public and private sectors worldwide, including; Schuberg Philis, Yale New Haven Hospital and Larkin Hospital in Miami, Florida.
“Nexenta’s software is a robust platform with data protection features that all of our technical team love using, but it also offers very high performance that will support our customers’ needs whilst still giving us the ability to easily scale up and out when needed”, said Funs Kessen, Mission Critical Engineer at Schuberg Philis. "With its interoperability and scalability, Nexenta is an important component for our platform. We expect a lot of our customers to take up the opportunity, and as we see exploding data growth rates, Nexenta is our secret weapon.”
