PALO ALTO, Calif. and MIDDLESEX, England, July 16 /PRNewswire/ — Nexenta Systems, Inc., developer of NexentaStor(TM), the leading open storage solution based upon the revolutionary file system ZFS, has announced a partnership with Broadberry Data Systems, a leading manufacturer of high-end custom NAS and SAN storage servers with offices in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Broadberry and Nexenta are partnering to deliver complete enterprise class storage solutions.
"We view NexentaStor as a critical enabler for our NAS storage solutions to shatter scalability and performance limitations of existing approaches," said Colin Broadberry, CEO of Broadberry Data Systems. "We're excited about the opportunity to bring high-value open storage solutions to enterprise users. The Broadberry XLstore storage systems combined with industry-leading server and storage hardware and NexentaStor offer an unbeatable price/performance solution."
Based upon NexentaStor, these solutions leverage the revolutionary ZFS file system and offer many advantages versus alternatives including: no limits on file system sizes or on the number of snap shots; inherent virtualization including the use of storage pooling to improve performance and enable thin provisioning; integrated search to manage highly granular backup policies; and end to end data integrity that eliminates the risk of silent data corruption that impacts many SATA based solutions.
"The storage industry is poised to go through a sweeping transformation that mirrors what the server market underwent starting the late 1990s," said Evan Powell, President and CEO, Nexenta Systems. "NexentaStor leverages ZFS and the work of the Nexenta community, including partners like Broadberry, to deliver enterprise-class reliability and value, putting enterprises back in control of their storage and their storage spending without sacrificing performance, scalability or reliability."
Broadberry has developed a reference architecture that is proving popular with medium and large enterprises. This reference architecture utilizes NexentaStor to stripe across multiple iSCSI targets, thereby improving the performance and availability of iSCSI targets while allowing the full suite of NexentaStor services to be used on the iSCSI stored data, such as replication to off-site locations for disaster recovery.
