SANTA CLARA, Calif. and AMHERST, N.Y. – July 21, 2015— Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Open
Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS) solutions and ATTO Technology, a leading storage connectivity
and infrastructure solution company, today jointly introduced NexentaStor MetroHA. Nexenta’s
award-winning software now supports MetroHA configurations to deliver
unparalleled availability, scalability and performance across multiple data

This proven solution gives data center managers the ability to protect
business critical applications and eliminate the risk of data loss.
MetroHA synchronously mirrors data between sites and ensures that in the event
of a total site disruption, data services are restored at the secondary
location or remote site within a matter of seconds, without any data loss.
ATTO’s FibreBridge® 6500 Storage Controller, which supports the MetroHA,
currently has more than 25,000 deployments worldwide with a failure rate of
less than 0.1 percent, improving up-time by 75 percent on average and
ultimately, significantly reducing maintenance costs. An accelerated engine
maintains priority for data transfers and eases the workload of attached
central processing units (CPUs), increasing process efficiency. The controller
allows multiple nodes to attach to the same group of storage, streamlining
server commands and increasing scalability.
Nexenta’s flagship OpenSDS platform that delivers unified file and block
storage services for demanding storage infrastructures by increasing
flexibility and scalability, simplifying data management and dramatically
reducing costs without sacrificing reliability. NexentaStor has been deployed
by more than six thousand customers globally.
“Software-defined storage was a key requirement in creating a successful
stretch cluster and as the market leader, Nexenta was the clear choice,” said
Thomas Kolniak, Director of Products at ATTO Technology. “Nexenta’s technical
superiority and comparatively low cost added tremendous value. NexentaStor
allowed us to deliver the highest levels of scalability, reliability and data
integrity, eliminating the geographic constraints of the past.”
“Our Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage solutions maximize
flexibility and choice for our customers. By partnering with ATTO Technology,
we continue to expand the set of enterprise applications that can benefit from
Nexenta solutions” said Thomas Cornely, Chief Product Officer at Nexenta. “With
zero data loss and continuous operations in the event of site failures,
NexentaStor MetroHA is designed to meet the most stringent availability
requirements of our enterprise customers.”
The NexentaStor list price per GB ranges for larger capacity (1PB) levels is
$0.18/GB including support. Prices can decrease with volume and per year based
on support. Nexenta also provides a two tier distribution model. When
purchasing NexentaStor with the separate MetroHA license, a Gold Level or
higher support starting a $4,900, as well as on-site installation from a
certified partner starting at $25k, is required.
