Nexenta and Canonical Extend Partnership to Develop, Deliver and Service Joint Software-Defined Storage Solution for Enterprise-Ready OpenStack Environments

Nexenta Logo 

Nexenta, the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), and Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu and Ubuntu OpenStack, have today jointly announced an extension of their partnership, creating a joint solution which pairs Nexenta’s award-winning SDS solution with Canonical’s Ubuntu OpenStack platform.

At last year’s OpenStack Summit, the companies announced their strategic alliance to support enterprise OpenStack customers and accelerate mainstream adoption of both software-defined storage and OpenStack technologies. Today, more than half of the world’s OpenStack deployments are built on Ubuntu, and the company has selected Nexenta to help expand its enterprise storage portfolio. Canonical and Nexenta integrated NexentaEdge, which delivers high performance object and block storage services, with Juju, a high-level service model for automating the deployment and management of applications. The joint solution allows Ubuntu customers to leverage NexentaEdge as their choice in storage solutions and provides seamless integration with Canonical OpenStack clouds.

Canonical customers can now purchase NexentaEdge in two unique ways: directly from the Juju Charm Store, a collection of immediately installable workloads which allow customers to deploy whatever services they need with Juju, or from their preferred Canonical sales representative or partner.

Nexenta and Canonical are both attending the OpenStack Summit hosted in Austin, Texas from April 25-29. In association with OpenStack Summit, Canonical’s CEO, Jane Silber, will be a keynote speaker at Nexenta’s OpenSDx Summit on Monday, April 25th at 6:30pm at the Four Seasons Hotel. This night will continue the industry-wide dialogue on the next big thing: Open Source inspired collaboration and "Software-Defined Everything" innovation. Nexenta OpenSDx Summit will be an exciting evening of stellar networking opportunities, special guest speakers, delicious cocktails and dinner.

“We’re proud to support Canonical in accelerating mainstream adoption of OpenStack technologies and are excited to provide customers with advanced and enterprise-ready scale-up and scale-out solutions, service and support they need for their OpenStack environments,” said Tarkan Maner, CEO & Chairman at Nexenta. “We joined forces last year and will continue to extend our strategic partnership to meet the needs of an evolving market requiring better scale, service and support via Open Source inspired collaboration and Software-Defined Data Center innovation on certified, tested and packaged reference architectures and beyond.”

“Nexenta is a commercial leader in software-defined storage and we are delighted to offer their comprehensive solutions to our enterprise OpenStack customers, and in addition, to collaborate on optimizing ZFS for Ubuntu,” said Mark Shuttleworth, Founder, Canonical. “Together, we’re combining the benefits of OpenStack and software-defined storage to deliver flexibility unparalleled by anyone else on the market.”
