Shadow-Soft Partners with EnterpriseDB and Tegile Systems to Provide New Open Source Converged Architecture Solution


Shadow-Soft, the Open Source system integration experts, today announced immediate availability of NexxoData, a new compute stack specifically engineered to accelerate SQL deployments and cost effectively protect SQL data for greater business impact.

NexxoData is the first converged infrastructure that enables enterprises to seamlessly migrate from proprietary databases to enterprise-grade open source Postgres on affordable, multi-protocol flash or hybrid storage. It combines leading-edge storage array technology from Tegile Systems and Cisco UCS into a single system optimized for running EnterpriseDB Postgres Database. The resulting solution is designed to avoid the high acquisition costs, operating expenses and software licensing and maintenance of legacy converged systems.

"Our partnership with EnterpriseDB and Tegile provides the core technology for our latest converged solution, NexxoData, which seeks to give customers an alternative to traditional proprietary offerings," said Tony Stafford, Vice President of Technical Solutions at Shadow-Soft. "An enterprise open source approach and cost-effective design make it a great fit to our solution and professional services portfolio."

With NexxoData, enterprises have the ability to scale compute and storage resources independently. Unlike traditional converged infrastructure solutions that are too expensive to support lower tier applications, NexxoData allows enterprises to consolidate any and all application workloads in a single flash storage platform. As a result, enterprises attain an effective cost structure for both mission critical and lower-tier applications.

"Over two thirds of Tegile customers are running databases on our arrays," said Rob Commins, Vice President of Marketing at Tegile Systems. "Through the partnership with Shadow-Soft and EnterpriseDB, customers gain access to a converged system that will accelerate their applications while avoiding the daunting costs of legacy infrastructure."

"Our customers are looking for enterprise-class open source alternatives to traditional stacks in order to gain greater efficiencies in their IT environments," said Lenley Hensarling, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Strategy at EDB. "EDB is delighted that ShadowSoft chose EDB Postgres to work with NexxoData in order to bring its converged infrastructure to our customers."
