MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZeroStack, the leader in making self-driving private cloud affordable for all companies, and Nexenta, the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced a joint solution that integrates ZeroStack’s Intelligent Cloud Platform with Nexenta’s storage systems to create a pre-tested, completely automated, and fully supported converged private cloud solution. With this solution, enterprises and managed service providers can now leverage Nexenta’s industry-first hardware and protocol-agnostic Software-Defined Storage (SDS) portfolio, delivering complete freedom from storage hardware vendor lock-in, to build a highly resilient and high performing cloud for application development, running packaged enterprise applications and hosting.
The combined ZeroStack/Nexenta solution offers these unique advantages:
- Nexenta users can simply plug their storage devices into the ZeroStack Intelligent Cloud Platform via Nexenta’s REST API technology to access existing storage resources in a self-driving, on-premises cloud.
- Nexenta provides a multi-site disaster recovery solution that can back up ZeroStack cloud data.
“ZeroStack makes on-premises cloud simple and affordable, and this solution allows our customers to combine Nexenta solutions with the ZeroStack platform,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman & CEO at Nexenta. “Our OpenSDS solutions give customers the storage agility they need, and ZeroStack’s cloud platform extends storage into the cloud for self-service use on a self-healing infrastructure.”
Both Nimble Storage and ZeroStack will market the solution to their customers and resellers. With this combined solution, Nimble Storage and ZeroStack resellers can offer their customers strategic advice on cloud and storage options while retaining customers who might otherwise have no choice but move to a public cloud provider.
“Nexenta has a unique storage solution for enterprises that want high performance and scalability,” said Ajay Gulati, CEO and Co-Founder at ZeroStack. “By combining our products into a single converged solution, we give our customers the fastest, most reliable access to data in a turnkey on-premises cloud solution.”
ZeroStack uses smart software and artificial intelligence to deliver a self-driving, fully integrated private cloud platform that offers the agility and simplicity of public cloud at a fraction of the cost. On premises, ZeroStack’s cloud operating system converts bare-metal servers into a reliable, self-healing cloud cluster. This cluster is consumed via a self-service SaaS portal. The SaaS portal also collects telemetry data and uses artificial intelligence to create models that help customers make decisions about capacity planning, troubleshooting and optimized placement of applications. The integrated App Store enables one-click deployment of many applications that provide the platform for most modern cloud native applications. This solution is fully integrated with public clouds to offer seamless migration between clouds. Founded by senior engineers from VMware and Google, the company is funded by Formation 8 and Foundation Capital, and is based in Mountain View, California.
