Nexenta Receives 2015 Cloud Storage Excellence Award for Its Storage Solutions from Cloud Computing Magazine

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.”

cloud-storageNexenta’s NexentaStor and NexentaEdge solutions 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 would be able to 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 one of the first object storage integrations 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.
