Nexenta and Your Public Cloud

Moving data to a public cloud can help expand your capacity. Secondary data stored in the cloud makes sense for protection or seldom used data. However, primary data located in the cloud may also make sense if you also plan on migrating the workloads to run in the cloud where they can share a LAN connected backplane.

NexentaCloud in AWS delivers a rich data storage solution increasing storage efficiency for public cloud through data reduction, enhanced visibility, and management of your cloud workloads. To learn more go here

Nexenta Hybrid Cloud

Interoperability for cloud-deployed applications and cloud-hosted data remains a crucial part of the continuity equation. Industry analyst researchers found that 80% of applications remain “non-cloud’ while the 20% that are cloud-native are driven by more externally facing applications, such as mobile and web applications, where most back-office applications evolve more slowly.


Nexenta’s complete portfolio of solutions makes it easy for enterprises looking to build an end to end hybrid cloud storage environment to do so. By leveraging NexentaStor and NexentaCloud organizations can easily replicate between their public and private data centers. Then leverage NexentaFusion as you centralized management for day to day tasks along with the comprehensive analytics of your hybrid cloud storage.
