Nexenta and Mirantis Collaborate on Innovative OpenStack-based Cloud Deployments

Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions, and Mirantis (@Mirantisit), the number one pure-play OpenStack vendor, today announced a partnership to develop and deliver enterprise-class solutions that help cloud solution providers and enterprises simplify and harden large-scale, cloud deployments based on Nexenta's industry-leading Software Defined Storage platform and Mirantis OpenStack distribution.

Through this partnership, NexentaStor, the number one Software Defined Storage platform on any commodity hardware, will integrate with Mirantis OpenStack to help simplify customer experience for large-scale and complex OpenStack deployments in both public and private cloud environments.

Nexenta and Mirantis solutions help customers escape from vendor lock-in, in cloud deployments and tap into the innovation of the OpenStack community. Customers include ScaleMatrix, the leading large-scale cloud service provider based in San Diego, CA. ScaleMatrix is a premier provider of cloud services to public and private sector organizations along with infrastructure technologies from leading systems vendors, including Nexenta, Mirantis and Dell. "Augmenting Nexenta's Software Defined Storage model with Mirantis OpenStack helps us simplify and accelerate our business service delivery to customers without being forced to rely on the cloud offerings of just one vendor. Our partnership with innovative leaders like Nexenta, Mirantis and Dell, helps us to do what we we've always been focused on: providing superior customer services and results," said Mark Ortenzi, Founder and CEO at ScaleMatrix.

"Nexenta has tapped into the dynamism and innovation of the open source community by making significant code contributions to the upstream OpenStack codebase and enabling its innovative storage technology to work well with OpenStack," said Adrian Ionel, President and CEO of Mirantis. "We see a lot of interest in Nexenta storage management from our customers, and this partnership will help us provide the best possible experience for them. Through this partnership, Mirantis and Nexenta will be able to free the data center by providing customers with the greatest amount of choice in cloud solutions, allowing them to take advantage of the latest and greatest open source innovations on the fly."

"Mirantis has a great track record in helping customers deploy OpenStack," said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta. "By integrating Nexenta's leading Software Defined Storage platform with the Mirantis OpenStack platform, we are providing enterprises and cloud service leaders like ScaleMatrix with simplicity, agility and efficiency in their cloud deployments so that they can achieve levels and profitability for their customers."
