the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (SDS)
(#softwaredefinedstorage) solutions, today announced it has reduced
storage management times at Rivebit
by 87.5% whilst boosting capacity and performance.
Launched this year by IT and VMware specialist Roberto Bondavalli,
Rivebit is a growing provider of virtualisation and consolidation,
disaster recovery, cloud-based backup and cloud PBX services to SMEs in
Northern Italy. With a focus on becoming the region's leading
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud provider, Rivebit already
manages its customers' data across two sites and has plans to grow this
footprint in the future.
Rivebit was looking for a storage solution that could provide the right
capacity for its needs, combined with strong performance to support its
cloud back up service. The storage solution also needed to preserve the
stability of the infrastructure and be compatible with a number of
horizontal applications including MySQL, Microsoft Exchange 2013 and
VMware Horizon View.
After evaluating the market, Rivebit chose NexentaStor
based on a Supermicro reference architecture. The solution was installed
onsite by Nexenta channel partner, NT
Nuove Technologie. Rivebit then managed the rest of the deployment.
The solution underpins Rivebit's VMware infrastructure across the two
data centres ensuring that data can be rapidly backed up to the
secondary site and restored, in the event of a failure.
"The biggest challenge was to source a storage solution that had big
data capacity and good performance but with traditional platforms - this
is very hard to find," said Bondavalli. "Since implementing Nexenta we
can easily add capacity without having to shut down and failing drives
can be swapped without any downtime. NexentaStor is fast, stable and
significantly cheaper than rival products. I used to spend four hours a
week on storage management issues but this now eight times faster and
start up time on our virtual machines has gone from over a minute down
to just 15 seconds."
Jill Orhun, Vice President of Marketing, Nexenta, said, "NexentaStor
offers the ideal combination of enterprise functionality that Rivebit
needs to support its infrastructure. Organisations are realising that
SDS is the future of storage and we are delighted that cloud service
providers like Rivebit are choosing Nexenta to cater to their storage
needs. We pride ourselves on helping customers to move away from the
Massively Expensive Storage Systems (MESS) provided by the proprietary
vendors and work in partnership with our customers to make sure the
solution they implement is the best fit for them."
