Cirrascale launches SM4490D with NexentaStor 4.0, the industry's first enterprise-class Software-Defined Storage solution

27 May 2014 San Diego - Cirrascale Corporation, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage data centre infrastructure for conventional and modular data centres, has expanded its CirraStor storage product line to include the SM4490D supporting NexentaStor 4.0, the latest Software-Defined Storage solution from industry expert Nexenta.

The Cirrascale SM4490D storage rackmount server is a highly available, fully redundant, and fault tolerant storage solution delivering up to 280TB in a single 4U, 70-bay enclosure with dual server nodes. These nodes support the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family for increased performance and reliability. Additionally, the SM4490D can scale-out to support up to 3PB of storage and is architected to support massively scalable Big Data and private Cloud deployments.

As the industry's first enterprise-class Software-Defined Storage solution, NexentaStor 4.0 is simpler, faster and stronger than its previous version. Its extended petabytes scaling abilities, NexentaStor 4.0 offers improved features over previous versions including 4x faster performance and over a 50% reduction in HA failover times.

"With its improved security, availability, and manageability, NexentaStor 4.0 is absolutely a game changer in the storage market", stated David Driggers, Chief Executive Officer, Cirrascale Corporation. "When this level of Software-Defined Storage is installed on our versatile, open-architecture CirraStor storage platforms, it becomes an extremely disruptive solution in an industry where customers have been looking for the right storage solutions that can provide lower TCO while delivering investment protection for years."

"The Cirrascale CirraStor platform provides a great hardware foundation for customers selecting NexentaStor 4.0 for their Software-Defined Storage requirements", stated Thomas Cornely, VP of Product Management at Nexenta. "Both companies provide a product that is robust, reliable, scalable and cost-effective. When used together, customers are sure to experience the true benefits of an enterprise-level Software-Defined Storage solution on reliable, open-architecture hardware."

The Cirrascale CirraStor rackmount storage solution, the SM4490D with NexentaStor 4.0, is immediately available to order and will begin shipping in high volume later in June 2014.
