Offering expert pre-sales consultation and advanced technology to decrease storage costs
Silicon Mechanics, Inc., announces that it has been designated as a Cloud Builder Alliance Partner by Seagate a worldwide leader in storage solutions.
As a Cloud Builder Alliance Partner, Silicon Mechanics will design, integrate, and sell shared storage for virtualization, using the Silicon Mechanics zStax unified storage appliance. Powered by NexentaStor™, a fully featured NAS/SAN software platform, the zStax family of storage management solutions delivers high-capacity, high-performance, reliable, unified storage, while lowering the total cost of ownership for cloud-based storage infrastructures.
The zStax software-defined storage model is deployed on enterprise-class, industry standard hardware. Silicon Mechanics relies on Seagate enterprise SAS hard drives, with speeds from 7.2K to 15K RPM, for fast and reliable storage. The zStax unified storage appliance family of products is ideal for applications ranging from archival storage to enterprise tier 1 implementations.
Using NexentaStor™, the software-only, open architecture, hardware-agnostic storage solution, Silicon Mechanics can help customers save 70 to 80 percent compared to expensive, proprietary storage technologies. As a fully featured NAS/SAN software platform with capabilities that meet and exceed those of legacy storage systems, NexentaStor™ scales further and more cost effectively, and does not force customers to replace entire systems as drive and IO technologies evolve over time.
"Seagate is delighted to welcome Silicon Mechanics as a Cloud Builder Alliance Partner, which will help them deliver custom, flexible, and scalable server and storage solutions for the cloud," said Mark Wojtasiak, Senior Global Marketing Manager of Seagate. "Working with Seagate's broad portfolio of enterprise products, Silicon Mechanics will be able to offer custom configurations to meet any specific customer application need."
