Cisco UCS + NexentaVSA for View = Complete VDI Solution
The Cisco UCS platform solution, with NexentaVSA for View, enables rapid virtual desktop deployment, improves scalability, and simplifies provisioning of storage for VDI. Running with NexentaVSA for View software, the solution can deploy up to 1600 desktops in one UCS blade chassis and UCS C240s providing storage. Running on an all Cisco UCS platform, this solution provides comprehensive compute, networking, storage, and virtualization functionality.
This is the only VDI solution running entirely on a Cisco UCS platform.
Nexenta Enterprise Storage Solutions: NexentaStor Release
NexentaStor helps organizations implement high performance, yet cost-effective data storage solutions by taking advantage of inline deduplication, unlimited snapshots and cloning, hardware-agnostic solutions, and high availability support.
NexentaVSA for View: Making VDI Simple and Affordable
NexentaVSA for View introduces a number of new features, which further improve both the economics and performance of your VDI projects and further simplify implementationand management. Along with delivering 45-100+ IOPS to each desktop, NV4V can dramatically reduce overall costs, which historically can run to more than 40% of VDI budget just for storage.
Cloud Storage with NexentaStor
Amplify cloud benefits with advanced storage and data management technologies. Performance and IT efficiency improve while administrative costs drop dramatically.
Nexenta Cloud Archive Plug-in
Storing and securing data has become a dominant industry requirement. This has made cloud archival solutions one of the fastest up and coming areas in the storage sector. And with the exponential explosion in data creation, many enterprise data storage administrators are re-evaluating storage solutions, processes, staffing needs, and cost efficiency.
Nexenta Cloud Strategy: Unified Storage for Public and Private Clouds
The Cloud can mean many things to many people. For some, it’s the ability to run an application “somewhere” on the Web. For others, it is “webtone”, the ability to use an elastic computational and storage resource when it is needed and where it is needed. For still others, it means the ability to have internal resources that can be shared with an enterprise, with a minimum of management overhead. For Nexenta, it means all this and more. Our strategy is to deliver rock-solid, high-performance storage, securely, so that you don’t lose your data in the cloud. Ever.
Nexenta Fights Against Bit Rot
Bit rot is an under-reported disease that can corrupt data within documents and cause application data to degrade over time. In other words, one or more file bits have changed, causing silent data corruption. A key component of any file system is to return the exact data that was previously written. If it cannot do that, it must be able to detect and report the data error. But the pernicious fact is that most modern file systems cannot detect these changes.
ZFS hybrid storage pools intelligently combine DRAM, flash, and hard disk drives to achieve the right balance of cost and performance for any given working set, while reducing the need for administrators to constantly monitor storage for I/O bottlenecks.
Nexenta Virtual Machine DataCenter (VMDC) Plug-in
Simplifies storage for system administrators by setting storage policies for virtual environments and performing common tasks, such as stopping and starting VMs and performing template-based clones.
Optimizing VDI Storage Using NexentaStor
Based on the power of the ZFS technology, NexentaStor offers superior price/performance over traditional storage solutions for VDI, overcoming limitations of many traditional storage solutions and supporting a virtually unlimited numbers of files, file systems, and snapshots.
VMworld 2011 — Hands-on Lab: Nexenta squares up to EMC and NetApp over performance
Cost-effective and effective storage from Nexenta matched EMC and NetApp’s multi-million-dollar systems in VMworld 2011’s Hands On Lab."
High-Availability Cluster Plug-in
Consists of NexentaStor appliances running a defined set of services and monitoring each other for failures. It enables two NexentaStor instances to be configured as an active / active pair.
Nexenta Archiving / Backup & Recovery: Data security and availability
Archiving / Backup & Recovery facilitates and safeguards company-critical information for extended periods of time, significantly lowers corporate costs and risks, and increases end user productivity and organizational efficiency.
Nexenta Target FC Plug-in
Provides enterprise-grade control and monitoring that allows system administrators to govern the appliance during software and configuration upgrades and updates.
Nexenta Auto-CDP Plug-in
The Automatic Continuous Data Protection (Auto-CDP) Plug-in replicates storage volumes between two different NexentaStor appliances in real time, at block level.
NexentaStor, built upon ZFS technology, runs on industry standard x86 servers, and provides NAS and SAN capabilities, including support for CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel storage access.
