NexentaStor 4.0 now available with Silicon Mechanics systems

Silicon Mechanics has adopted NexentaStor 4.0 Software Defined Storage (SDS) from its partner Nexenta.

With NexentaStor 4.0, companies can move away from traditional hardware-centric storage to a unified storage solution that scales to meet storage requirements on any platform. With critical enhancements around controller performance, media error handling, replication and ecosystem integration, NexentaStor 4.0 delivers data integrity and provides customers with the flexibility to select their storage operating system independently from the hardware on which it runs, without compromising on features, reliability and availability.

‘The latest version of Nexenta reflects the close relationship that Nexenta has with our channel partners and joint customers as we add features and functionality to help businesses save time and money, and eliminate any storage hurdles that they may face,’ said Don Lopes, Director of Channel & Inside Sales, Nexenta.
