Nexenta Certifies SMART Storage Systems’ Optimus SSDTweet
Industry-Leading Enterprise-Class SAS SSD Improves Performance of Storage Appliances Leveraging NexentaStor Software Platform While Lowering the Cost Per Terabyte Written
26 February, 2013 – SMART Storage Systems, an innovative enterprise solid-state drive (SSD) technology provider, today announced that Nexenta, the leader in software-defined storage solutions for the enterprise, has certified the company’s Optimus SSD. An industry-leading, enterprise-class SSD utilising the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) 6Gb/s interface, the SMART Storage Systems Optimus improves performance of NexentaStor-enabled storage appliances while lowering the total cost per Terabyte Written (TBW) for enterprise applications through enhanced endurance.
- Fully featured NAS/SAN software platform, NexentaStor is designed to make data storage more cost-effective
- Enables organisations to leverage industry standard hardware rather than proprietary systems
- Software features include inline de-duplication, unlimited snapshots and cloning, unlimited file size and high-availability support
- When paired with SMART Storage Systems’ Optimus SAS SSD, data storage systems can achieve consistent high-performance when compared to legacy storage systems
- In addition, the Optimus decreases the cost of high-performance storage
The combination of the Optimus SAS SSD and NexentaStor software platform will be on display as part of the Boston Igloo NX Series Solid State Appliance (SSA) in the SMART Storage Systems booth (Hall 2, Stand E57) during the upcoming CeBIT 2013 conference. If you would like to arrange to speak to SMART Storage Systems at the show, please contact us.
Our customers require high-throughput, high-capacity storage solutions to support the datasets bogging down their data centres. The Optimus SSD with NexentaStor software allow our Igloo NX Series to take performance to a whole other level without requiring the use of higher-cost components and hardware. This enables us to not only meet the performance-related requirements of our customers, but their budget restrictions as well.

This enables us to not only meet the performance-related requirements of our customers, but their budget restrictions as well. Our Optimus SSD was designed to provide industry-leading performance and endurance from the lowest-cost MLC Flash. When combined with the NexentaStor software platform, data centre managers can raise the bar on performance, while lowering the bar on cost, resulting in the best value proposition for any enterprise application.
John Scaramuzzo, president of SMART Storage Systems
SSDs play a very critical role in most of Nexenta's deployments, therefore we continue to research, test and certify upcoming SSDs. We are proud to partner with SMART Storage Systems because it gives our customers an additional choice when selecting enterprise class SSDs for their Nexenta configurations.
