Nexenta and Software Defined Storage Solutions Continue Global Expansion in Germany With New Distributor

Nexenta Systems, (@Nexenta), 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 scalability.”

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.”

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers.

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
