NIMESA for Nexenta

NexentaStor delivers full featured unified file (NFS and SMB) and block (Fibre Channel and iSCSI) storage services and can scale from terabytes to petabytes. As the leading software-defined storage solution on the market, NexentaStor can be deployed on bare metal hardware to replace legacy all-flash, hybrid and all-disk storage appliances, or in virtual machines on private cloud to add enterprise grade file services to traditional SANs and hyper-converged infrastructure deployments.

Nimesa has integrated effectively with NexentaStor to protect the data in NAS & SAN. Nimesa identifies replicated volumes, which makes it easy for storage admins to handle them more efficiently. Using Nimesa with NexentaStor not only boosts RPO/RTO but also reduces your datacenter’s TCO.
