Solution Offering

NexentaStor software reduces storage requirements in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments by freeing up space at the back end through SCSI UNMAP, allowing for the shrinking of thin provisioned volumes. Cloning, along with inline deduplication and compression, create a more than 100-to-1 reduction in storage. In addition, NexentaStor enables you to protect data through a range of backup and replication capabilities, including unlimited snapshots and clones. It also allows synchronization to multiple destinations, thereby allowing site-to-site replications across disparate destinations. Running on industry-standard hardware, NexentaStor eliminates vendor lock-in and provides open, unified storage management at a fraction of the cost of legacy systems while delivering enterprise-class storage solutions.
