Nexenta: The Global Leader in Software Defined Storage

Tarkan Maner, CEO
Applications traditionally required externally shared data storage systems to supply them with capacity, performance and data protection. Most data storage systems perform these functions reasonably well. Their big problem is limited automation and an inability to adapt in real time to dynamic change requirements from the applications.

Nexenta has become the industry leader for Software Defined Storage which is a key component of the Software Defined Data Center. The company has separated the control plane from the data plane by delivering a full featured storage operating and file system based on open source that can be deployed on any server to create a storage head driving almost unlimited amounts of storage at a fraction of the price charges by proprietary legacy storage vendors.
