@Nexenta Announces Unique #SoftwareDefinedStorage Implementation for Leading #Healthcare Cloud Provider

Nexenta, the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (SDS), today announced the deployment and case study for VM Racks. VM Racks delivers enterprise-class virtualization, government and HIPAA compliant web hosting solutions worldwide.

“VM Racks is a great example of a growing company that was potentially held back by the price and complexity of legacy storage solutions,” said Craig Cagle, VP and GM of Americas at Nexenta. “We are very pleased to be able to work with VM Racks and help them deliver their innovative HIPAA compliant hosting solution.”

Established in 1997, San Carlos, CA-based VM Racks handles the management, security and storage of medical information from healthcare companies and is know for delivering outstanding customer service and value-based web hosting plans. VM Racks’ enterprise-class virtualization solutions and managed hosting services support government, healthcare, and business organizations worldwide. As a certified HIPAA hosting provider, VM Racks' maintains the highest level of audits and certifications including SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, and SOC 3 Type 2. As the need for HIPAA compliance continues to grow, VM Racks' business continues to demonstrate strong growth.

Lowering their total cost of ownership was the single largest benefit to VM Racks.

"Had we gone with one of the market leaders, we would have been paying 10 times the cost for our storage solution and that cost would have been passed on to our customers," according to Gil Vidals, CEO at VM Racks. "Nexenta allowed us to implement an enterprise-quality solution, but let an entry-level company like us get our foot in the door. I've found that bigger storage vendors don't let growing companies like ours get a toehold the way that Nexenta did. Nexenta didn't say 'come back when you are big enough for us.' Because of the cost savings we've realized, we've been able to keep our HIPAA pricing the lowest in the industry and that's something that makes us very proud."

VM Racks now has more than 200 terabytes under management and is still growing. As the company grows, Nexenta's solution continues to scale.

"Nexenta took an interest in the success of our business and helped us to grow to where we are today," added Vidals. "Their sales, service, and engineering teams have all been a pleasure to work with.”
