Leading Healthcare Network Selects Nexenta Software Defined Storage and VMware Virtualization Solutions to Deliver Innovative Private Cloud

SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage), today announced that Yale New Haven Hospital, one of the nation's leading healthcare innovators, has selected NexentaConnect™ as their storage solution for the innovative private cloud deployment.

The VMware Horizon View, Cisco (News - Alert) UCS and NexentaConnect solution provide Yale with one platform, one architecture, one solution for an innovative cloud deployment. This integrated offering has been validated in the Cisco IVT (Interoperability Verification Testing) Lab, and demonstrated increased desktop density, thereby eliminating crippling I/O bottlenecks. This integrated offering delivered a solution that met Yale's aggressive budget expectations.

Nexenta worked with ePlus, a leading provider of advanced technology solutions and a valued partner of both VMware and Cisco, to successfully deploy thousands of virtual desktops across multiple industries and organizations.

"We were faced with a significant challenge at Yale," said Dave Franco and Matt Openshaw, System Managers, Yale New Haven Hospital. "We needed a solution that was high performance, scalable and cost effective. Wit an Integrated Solution including NexentaConnect we were able to have a single architecture that met the needs of our users. We were very pleased with both the solution and the support we received from all the vendors in this project."


"Working with Nexenta to meet Yale's requirements has been a great experience," said Mason Uyeda, Senior Director, End-User Computing-Solution Marketing and Management, VMware. "Yale has a great reputation of being at the leading edge of technology adoption. Their implementation of Horizon View was a great endorsement of our solution and the NexentaConnect assures that storage challenges will not be an issue."

Jim Fitzgerald, Vice President of Business Development, Nexenta states, "NexentaConnect delivers on all the promise of Software Defined Storage. The NexentaConnect deployment tool allowed Yale to define their storage needs, which then enabled the software to intelligently synch the storage and desktops for deployment, and monitor the storage with real-time feedback to synch the entire environment. Software Defined Storage for desktop virtualization and all applications is the future and Yale is showing the way in the healthcare industry."

NexentaConnect provides a 38x physical SAN data retrieval reduction, a 2.5x SAN write I/O reduction and a 72 percent increase in VM density per host. It is able to do this by effectively utilizing compression, de-duplication and advanced caching methods that are core design characteristics of NexentaConnect. Additionally, NexentaConnect's application defined deployment tools are the industry's first implementation of true Software Defined Storage, allowing the IT manager to define the needs of the applications and then having NexentaConnect automatically deploy the storage for the maximum performance and benefit.
