Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Software Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage) solutions, today announced the publication of an IDC “Hot Vendor” profile on the technologies, products, and go-to-market strategy of Nexenta. According to analyst firm IDC, the emergence of SDS will help to address top CIO and IT concerns around convergence, big data, hybrid architectures, cloud, and agnostic platforms, while helping companies to avoid vendor lock-in, and achieve performance and scalability, all with attractive economics. IDC views Nexenta as well-placed to take advantage of the growing SDS trend.

"The volume and type of data being collected by enterprises today is moving storage to the forefront of CIO and IT agendas," according to Donna Taylor, Research Director, IDC. "Storage is becoming a strategic company-wide issue and companies are eager to find solutions that balance security, price, performance and reliability; Nexenta is one solution worth examining further."

“Nexenta’s view and vision for a Software Defined future is progressing along with the industry; our SDS solutions have already established a beachhead that is 5,000 customers strong,” stated Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta. “We fully expect that our next steps will continue to develop this amazing market opportunity as we ride at the front of the SDS wave.”
