the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (#softwaredefinedstorage)
(SDS), today announced that ADN,
one of Central Europe’s leading value added distributors, will be
offering value added solutions and products throughout its partner
network, based on Nexenta’s award winning SDS solutions.
ADN distributes IT solutions that focus on the virtualisation & cloud,
storage & server, networking, security and unified communications
market. The company is widely regarded as a market leader in the sector
and is, among other firsts, Microsoft commercial distributor and largest
SPLA-Reseller in Germany, Central Europe’s leading Citrix distributor
and Dell’s first German distributor for end-to-end-infrastructures.
Additionally ADN also provides its partners with a number of value added
services including training, consulting, support and logistics. Working
with more than 4,800 resellers, including the top system integrators in
Germany, ADN expands Nexenta’s existing channel market.
Herrmann Ramacher, CEO of ADN, said, “As a Value Added Distributor, ADN
constantly analyses the IT market for forward-looking technologies and
vendors. In collaboration with Dell, our attention was drawn to Nexenta
and its SDS solution based on ZFS. One of Nexenta’s SDS offerings,
NexentaStor, is Dell certified, and the combination creates a
technologically mature storage solution that is yet to be matched
anywhere else in the market when it comes to flexibility and
Udo Schillings, Vendor Manager at ADN, added, “Nexenta’s innovative
technology is an important addition to our solution-oriented portfolio.
Using our extensive Citrix experience in combination with NexentaStor on
Dell hardware means we can now offer our partners a cost effective,
reliable enterprise storage solution to really revolutionise the
performance and management of their customers’ VDI environments. Since
Nexenta sells 100% through the channel too, it was a perfect match.”
Sofware-Defined Storage solves many of the storage challenges faced by
enterprises in the cloud and virtualisation world, and particularly in
the VDI space. Nexenta was recently verified as part of the Citrix
Ready® VDI Capacity Program Verified for Citrix XenDesktop®. As
Citrix’s number one distributor in the region, ADN will be able to offer
solutions that specifically address the storage needs of customers who
already have or are thinking about implementing VDI using XenDesktop.
Johan Van Den Boogaart, Sales Manager at Nexenta, concluded, “ADN has so
much experience in this market and their relationship with Citrix and
Dell makes it a perfect fit for Nexenta. Over the last three years,
Germany has become an important market for Nexenta as public and private
sector organisations realise the benefits of using SDS to underpin their
date centres. The partnership with ADN helps us to continue to expand
our market presence. With growing demand and a strong base of partners,
ADN and Nexenta are natural partners to offer flexible, highly scalable
and affordable storage solutions with excellent features and leading
performance for enterprise customers.”

Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve.
Digital Transformation means:
handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
