Today, large enterprises and SMBs alike are looking for cost-effective storage that allows them to seamlessly and painlessly scale capacity by adding the most suitable solution regardless of the brand behind it, said Robert Townsend, Director at NexStor. Thanks to their open design, the ONStor Bobcat and Pantera enable us to enter accounts that were previously off-limits because of the legacy devices users wanted to retain. ONStor has literally opened new doors for us.
With the ONStor award-winning Pantera Clustered NAS system, customers can increase performance and capacity simply, quickly and non-disruptively by adding either filer nodes or disk. ONStor NAS systems integrate features such as file server virtualisation and modular clustering, and can be deployed across a number of enterprise applications to consolidate data from hundreds of servers into a single, easy-to-manage environment. In addition, Pantera supports both SAS and SATA drives allowing for tiered storage in the same chassis.
On the back of storage capacity growth we have seen the demand for consolidation rise because organisations cannot keep adding IT administrators at the same rate as they are adding storage, said Raffaele Persico, founder and CEO at Terasystem. With this partnership we get the products, support, and services we need to help our customers do more with their existing resources. ONStor is great vendor to do business with.
