ScaleMatrix, Dell, Nexenta, and Leading Technology Analyst to Deliver a Panel Discussion on the Latest Trends in Software-Defined Data Centers

Nexenta, the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), will be hosting a complimentary webinar, “Delivering the Software-Defined Data Centers via Open Software-Defined Storage,” in partnership with global enterprise storage leader, Dell; premier global analyst firm, IDC; and the pioneering public cloud service provider and Nexenta customer, ScaleMatrix. Together this dynamic panel of industry leaders will share diverse perspectives on the Software-Defined Data Center of the future and the pivotal role of OpenSDS.

Featuring Eric Burgener, Research Director for IDC’s Storage Practice; Chris Orlando, co-founder of ScaleMatrix; Alan Atkinson, VP, GM for Storage at Dell; and Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta, the webinar on March 10, 2015 will offer insights into how mobile, social media, enterprise big data and cloud computing are driving demand for greater flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness in the data center.

During the webinar, the presenters will outline the challenges that face today’s modern infrastructures and how to solve them in their respective arena. Attendees will learn the difference between real industry trends and the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) hype. They will also discover how Open, Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS) can ensure lower TCO and help organizations achieve the power, capacity and space efficiencies they need to operate the data center of the future. Through a series of use cases on OpenSDS, attendees will hear how organizations – whose data is one of their most important assets -- are already achieving a high level of efficiency, flexibility and scalability with OpenSDS solutions.

“Flash, cloud and software-defined storage technologies are key components in agile, software-defined computing environments,” said Eric Burgener, Research Director for IDC’s Storage Practice. “Enterprises are clearly moving in this direction, and this session with Nexenta, Dell, ScaleMatrix, and IDC will help IT practitioners better understand the key concerns in building more performant, available, cost-effective and manageable Software-Defined Data Centers.”

“We’re pleased to announce this highly informative session – offering a 360 degree view of the latest strategies for keeping up with new volumes of critical data and performance that are driving the need for more agile, dynamic storage resource provisioning in the enterprise,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta. “This webinar will offer key insights into how to simplify and optimize network and storage management for organizations looking to move to a Software-Defined Data Center.”

“We are thrilled to share what we’ve learned with companies that are looking to take the next step towards an Open, Software-Defined Data Center,” said Chris Orlando, co-founder of ScaleMatrix. “At ScaleMatrix, moving to OpenSDS and the Software-Defined Data Center gives us the high performance and flexible back-end that is integrally tied to our ability to deliver a number of services and out-perform 90 percent of other data center providers in our market.”

“We are pleased to be part of this webinar, offering innovative strategies for dealing with the diverse group of applications, data and systems that are fast becoming standard in today’s data center,” said Alan Atkinson, vice president and general manager, Dell Storage. “Software-Defined Data Center interest has gained significant momentum, and software-defined storage will play a key role in managing data and the network efficiently. We look forward to working with customers to help them develop a more open, flexible architecture across the data center.”
