NexentaStor 2.1 Released: Improves Industry-Leading Hardware Independent NAS/SAN Storage Solution for Virtual Environments

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - Nexenta Systems, Inc., delivering on its promise to continuously improve functionality and performance, today announced the release of NexentaStor 2.1. NexentaStor is a unified storage solution delivering enterprise class NAS and SAN functionality, based on the revolutionary ZFS file system. Now with over 11,000 users and in excess of 500 paid customers, NexentaStor offers an unmatched combination of enterprise class features and an open technology and business model that promises to end storage vendor lock-in forever.

A webinar will be co-hosted by Nexenta and Alyseo Systems tomorrow, August 18th, at 12pm eastern time, to review the experience of customers with NexentaStor 2.0 and to discuss new features of NexentaStor.

The focus of the webinar will be the use of NexentaStor to virtualize underlying storage in order to provide high performance, low cost, vendor independent enterprise storage to virtualized environments, including Citrix / Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware. With NexentaStor almost any underlying storage can be managed and presented to virtual servers via NFS or iSCSI or Fiber Channel. The management of the storage for these environments is improved through the use of the VM Data Center optional module from Nexenta that allows for one click storage provisioning and virtual machine cloning.

Alyseo Systems is a Paris, France based solutions provider recently named Citrix / Xen partner of the year for France. Their Director of Technology will co-present the webinar with Nexenta Systems.
