Nexenta Announces Namespace Cluster

Jun 21, 2011

Nexenta's new Namespace Cluster promises to scale out storage capacity and performance while also allowing users to connect to thousands of nodes to work together as one file system.

Namespace Cluster adds horizontal scalability to NexentaStor, can migrate data and associated workloads between nodes without end-user disruption, simplifies management of files across up to 256 storage machines, and manages multiple nodes from a single node.

Nexenta also announced an upgrade to its enterprise-class storage platform, NexentaStor, which now includes stretch cluster capabilities.

NexentaStor 3.1 is available now and Namespace Cluster will be available by August 2011. For a free NexentaStor trial, visit:
