London, UK —April 13, 2011—Nexenta Systems, the world’s leading provider of OpenStorage solutions, today announced a closer partnership with Supermicro (NASDAQ: SMCI), to offer value-added resellers worldwide an improved process to bring NexentaStor-powered devices to their customers. Additionally, the company has launched its Platinum Support service.

Hardware Partnership with Top Tier Provider Supermicro
As a continuation of the companies’ growing partnership, Supermicro, the industry leader in server technology innovation and green computing, will carry the combination of Supermicro’s 3U Super Storage Bridge Bay (SBB) solution and NexentaStor as a SKU in their price list – streamlining the sales process for Nexenta certified resellers. Supermicro became a premier-level partner in Nexenta’s Technology Partner Program in August 2010.

“By adding the combination of Supermicro’s Super SBB and NexentaStor software into our catalogue, we’re essentially removing any technical limitations for our resellers, so they can provide what their customers are demanding – performance and reliability at a reasonable price,” said Wally Liaw, Supermicro’s vice president of international sales.

Platinum Support
Nexenta has launched Platinum Support, a high-end support service targeted at enterprise customers who are using NexentaStor for mission critical use cases, and require Nexenta certified support staff to assist them in managing complex environments. Platinum users benefit from an assigned technical account manager, frequent operational reviews and Nexenta reviews of important configuration changes.

Channel Momentum
Based on NexentaStor’s OpenStorage platform, a number of certified resellers are responding to the strong customer demand for a better-priced alternative to NetApp, EMC and Hitachi. For example, Boston Technologies, in the United Kingdom, sells NexentaStor as a part of the Igloo NXStor SBB product, which recently received the ‘Stamp of Approval’ from Storage Magazine in the UK.

“Nexenta’s unique software-only storage approach drives higher margins for our resellers by allowing them to add NexentaStor and its implementation, integration, configuration and other value-added services to industry standard storage hardware,” said Jason Yoho, vice president, business development, Nexenta.
