TEANECK, N.J. and SAN JOSE, Calif., March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Data Dynamics®(@DataDynamicsInc), a leader in intelligent file management and Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced a joint partnership that empowers enterprises to free themselves from legacy storage systems and efficiently modernize their data centers to software defined storage and cloud.
Today’s fast-paced businesses need scalability to keep up with the growth of data consumption and the rapid emergence of new applications. With data-growth outpacing the typical IT budget, businesses are increasingly adopting strategies that leverage open source, software-defined and cloud storage, which can be dynamically provisioned to match business priorities while removing vendor lock-in and reducing capital and operational costs.
StorageX from Data Dynamics helps customers store the data they have, tag the data for analytic review and movement, and determine the best fit and value for the analyzed data. Migrating data from outdated and expensive legacy storage platforms is commonly the immediate challenge that enterprises face.
Organizations are challenged with large amounts of unstructured data that has become isolated and difficult to move across incompatible platforms, and often require multiple IT resources and consultants in the upgrade process. Data Dynamics and Nexenta enable businesses to update their data center, embrace software defined storage and painlessly move their data from legacy storage systems with confidence.
As a pioneer in open source-driven software-defined storage solutions, Nexenta’s core technology enables organizations to run their businesses securely, flexibly, and cost effectively. It helps to deploy web-scale solutions which can run everyday business applications smoothly. In addition, Nexenta storage is expandable enough to respond to fast-changing technology trends from social media, mobility, ever-growing big data solutions, and the emerging Internet of Things paradigm.
“Nexenta is continuing its massive market disruption where legacy hardware storage companies had dominated the industry for the past 30+ years. We are delighted with our solid market growth via our tight customer and partner relations, deep IP innovation and unmatched operational excellence. We are delighted to partner with Data Dynamics in getting customers out of the old and into the new way of doing storage,” said, Tarkan Maner, CEO at Nexenta.
“Enterprises today view file management as a strategic initiative to facilitate business agility, but as content becomes richer and more dynamic, and software-defined storage continues to gain widespread adoption, companies struggle with identifying the appropriate workloads to transition and the best means of automating the workflow,” said Cuong Le, Senior Vice President Field Operations, Data Dynamics. “StorageX automates the lifecycle management of end user and application based unstructured data by providing a centralized dashboard with aggregate and drill down views of global footprints, tied to automated movement based on business requirements. This truly makes it a powerful and must have platform for all enterprise customers.”
