Nexenta Systems Launches Nexenta EcoSystem Alliances Program (NESA)

Nexenta® Systems, the leader in Software-defined Storage solutions for the enterprise, today launched its Nexenta EcoSystem Alliance (NESA™) program to facilitate and grow the market for OpenStorage solutions that provide enterprise-class features.

More information about the Nexenta EcoSystem Alliance can be found at: http://nexenta.com/corp/nexenta-ecosystem-alliance-program-nesa.

Working with an ecosystem of technology partners is fundamental to the objective of providing “enterprise class storage to everyone,” a main tenet of Nexenta’s business philosophy.

This program was created to address the growing breadth of Nexenta’s technical partners. Its mission is to provide technical and marketing assistance to those partners that help to deliver a complete Software-defined Storage solution to the market. It also provides customers of Software-defined Storage guidance on the products and vendors that make up the Nexenta EcoSystems.

By joining NESA, partners can extend the sales and market reach of their organizations and promote their products to Nexenta’s resellers and customers. NESA is designed to co-market joint solutions through collaborative marketing, selling, and lead-generation activities. Partners also can take advantage of the Nexenta lab for certification, customer demos, and proof of concept (POCs).

Nexenta’s long standing technology partners immediately become charter members of the program and can start taking advantage of its benefits.

“Our technology partners play a huge role in Nexenta’s overall success,” Evan Powell, CEO of Nexenta. “Investing in programs like NESA allows us to reward our existing partners with a variety of benefits and attract additional partners to deliver complete storage solutions.”

“We are excited to see Nexenta, a key partner in Software-defined Storage, take this next step in its growth by launching the NESA program,” said Brent Blanchard, senior director of worldwide channel sales and marketing, LSI Corporation. “We have been working closely with Nexenta since its earliest days and believe that the NESA program will help drive adoption of certified OpenStorage solutions using our HBAs, SAS Switch and Nytro™ portfolio of PCIe flash adapters.”

“The exceptional level of storage performance with NexentaStor and STEC’s SSDs is a reflection of the close, symbiotic relationship between STEC and Nexenta,” said Farzin Baz, director of channel sales at STEC. “The NESA program gives STEC the opportunity to certify more products quickly and take advantage of multiple options for joint marketing, leveraging both of our storage expertise.”

“We at SuperMicro have seen Nexenta as a natural ally in the mission of delivering Software-defined Storage with industry standard, Intel-based hardware. We always have seen the benefit of testing and certifying solutions together so as to give our customers and channels the confidence they seek in their enterprise storage solutions,” said Wally Liaw, vice president of sales and co-founder of SuperMicro. “We see the NESA program streamlining this process. It gives us a perfect way to grow our market share in storage while promoting our joint value through Nexenta.”

Along with formalizing partner relationships with key existing partners, NESA will address the growing list of new partners wishing to join in the OpenStorage revolution. Nexenta’s goal is to not only accommodate system, HDD, and SDD vendors but also vendors in areas that complete the data center storage ecosystem.

The NESA program offers a tiered model with three membership levels: Affiliate, Certified, and Elite. Each level provides an increasing number of benefits and commitments from Nexenta, and serves as the foundation for a technical relationship with the company.

This program assures Nexenta customers that there is a solution in the ecosystem to address all their needs. Some of the recent additions to NESA include CommVault and LakeSide Software.

The program also includes product certification to ensure interoperability and time-to-market delivery of the latest innovations in Software-defined Storage solutions. As the result of a stronger relationship with technology partners, customers can focus on growing their OpenStorage infrastructure, confident in their technologies’ interoperability.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
