Silicon Mechanics Announces it is Now a Premium Reseller of Nexentastor Open Storage SolutionSuperior customer service and "Expert included" pledge key to selection as top tier partner
Silicon Mechanics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage, and high-performance computing hardware, announces that it is now a premium reseller of NexentaStor, the industry-standard, software-only, open architecture, hardware-agnostic storage solution, which provides enterprise storage features at mid-tier prices. Nexenta, the leader in Software-defined Storage, granted Silicon Mechanics premium status based on its "Expert included" pledge, which takes customer service and consultation to a whole new level, and one highly valued by Nexenta. As a premium reseller of NexentaStor, Silicon Mechanics can help customers save 70 to 80 percent compared to expensive, vertically integrated, proprietary storage technologies. NexentaStor is a fully featured NAS/SAN software platform with capabilities that meet and exceed those of legacy storage systems. It scales further and more cost effectively, and does not force customers to replace entire systems as drive and IO technologies evolve over time. Running on industry-standard hardware, NexentaStor helps organizations implement high-performance, yet cost-effective data storage solutions with features such as inline deduplication, unlimited snapshots and cloning, unlimited file size, and high-availability architecture. In addition, NexentaStor includes full integration with virtualized environments, even with mixed vendor infrastructure. This solution can create shared pools of storage from any combination of storage hardware, including SSDs, and delivers end-to-end data integrity, integrated search, and inline virus scanning. NexentaStor also enables efficient one-click storage provisioning. Nexenta looks for a high level of consultation in premium partners, and Silicon Mechanics fits the bill, offering 24/7 product support throughout the entire process of developing a solution before, during, and after. What's more, with Silicon Mechanics' proven storage expertise, customers can be assured that they will get the right solution for their specific needs. "I am extremely proud that Silicon Mechanics has crossed Nexenta's high threshold to earn this premium partnership designation," said Michael Fein, Sales Director for Silicon Mechanics. "Our 'Expert included' focus means we will be there to design and deliver the best solutions to meet our customers' growing needs. With NexentaStor, we can provide customers with a better long-term investment as storage needs increase." "We're very pleased that Silicon Mechanics has ascended the ladder to become one of our premium resellers," said Evan Powell, CEO of Nexenta. "We are impressed with their capabilities, and we know that their passion for customer service and their expertise in the high-performance computing and storage markets will make them an extremely valued partner."
