Integration between Accelerite Cloud Platform and Nexenta OpenSDS offers low-cost, scalable, high-performance cloud storage services

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Accelerite, a provider of infrastructure software for cloud, mobility, IoT and endpoint management solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in open source-driven Software-defined Storage (OpenSDS), to provide next-generation cloud storage solutions. The joint solution provides data centers and service providers with a pre-tested, full-featured and cost-effective solution for addressing today’s enterprise cloud storage challenges.

Accelerite CloudPlatform, powered by Apache CloudStack, is the industry’s leading cloud solution, proven in both highly scalable private deployments in enterprises, as well as in large-scale public deployments of cloud service providers.

Nexenta offers two innovative storage products for cloud customers, NexentaStor and NexentaEdge. NexentaStor is Nexenta’s flagship platform delivering unified file (NFS and SMB) and block (FC and iSCSI) storage services and can scale up to multi-petabyte configurations. Its inline data reduction, unlimited snapshots and clones and end-to-end data integrity are key benefits critical to agile cloud deployments. NexentaEdge is the first software-only, scale-out, multi-service storage solution to deliver cluster-wide inline deduplication and compression, offering high-performance, simplified management of petabyte-scale repositories. Now, with the latest updates, the block and object software-defined platform includes additional performance optimizations for all-flash and hybrid configurations.
