Nexenta Systems Powers LeaseWeb’s Cloud Platform

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – 24 October 2012 – Nexenta Systems, the leader in Software-defined Storage solutions for the enterprise, today announced that LeaseWeb, a leading global hosting provider, has chosen its flagship solution NexentaStor to underpin its new cloud platform.

LeaseWeb provides a portfolio of hosted infrastructure solutions, including traditional dedicated servers, cloud, colocation, and hybrid solutions, all backed by a first-class worldwide network with a network uptime of 99.999% and capacity of 2.5 Terabytes per second.

With particular emphasis on its public cloud solutions, LeaseWeb officially launched its new cloud platform in March of this year. With a reputation as a provider of quality infrastructure with high availability, it needed a storage solution that was agile, reliable, and could handle the IOPS requirements for its new platform. After installing NexentaStor on top of commodity hardware, the company also cut out vendor lock-in, reducing LeaseWeb’s long-term storage costs.

Marek Lubinski, virtualisation engineer, LeaseWeb, explains: “We needed an enterprise feature-rich storage solution. Nexenta’s OpenStorage software provides advanced caching and, when coupled with SSDs, it offers the performance we needed. It also offers enterprise-class redundancy with replication capabilities, including unlimited incremental snapshots and cloning, meaning we can scale up and out without the worry of escalating costs.”

Powering LeaseWeb’s Cloud service are multiple NexentaStor SANs providing the company with more than 450TB of raw capacity. Other enterprise-class features include hybrid storage pooling, deduplication, and thin provisioning. NexentaStor also offers high availability, synchronous and asynchronous replication and, most importantly, airtight end-to-end data integrity with the ability to find and detect silent data corruption.

Robert van der Meulen, Manager Cloud with LeaseWeb concludes: “In a world in which data growth rates are exploding, innovative storage technologies have become the secret ingredient to rolling out cloud services. With its scalability, interoperability, and cost-effectiveness, Nexenta was the answer for our new cloud platform.”

Evan Powell, CEO of Nexenta says: “No other approach to storage can match the scale and flexibility of the commercially supported OpenStorage-based NexentaStor. NexentaStor helps make it possible for public clouds to be financially viable for companies that have massive scale and yet do not want to undertake the risk and cost of writing their own storage solution.”

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
