OpenStorage Solution NexentaStor Yields Moving Company 148 Terabytes of Storage, a 300 Percent Improvement in I/O Ratio, and Disaster Recovery Solution
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nexenta Systems, a world leader in OpenStorage solutions, today announced it is powering executive moving company Budd Van Lines’ storage area network (SAN) with its flagship NexentaStor storage solution. Budd Van Lines, a leading nationwide independent household goods carrier, recently saw a dramatic surge in storage demand resulting from the company’s switch to 1080p security cameras, designed to better improve freight security and employee safety. Using Nexenta’s OpenStorage technology, Budd Van Lines increased its video storage capacity from one terabyte to 84TB, its VMware capacity from 11TB to 32TB and its replication and archive capacity from 0TB to 32TB – yielding 148TB of raw data in total. This capacity accommodated the new cameras, improved its I/O (input output) ratio by nearly 300 percent, and established an off-site backup location to keep the company online in the event of a disaster.
“Before we discovered Nexenta, choosing a storage area network was a shot in the dark,” said Douglas Soltesz, chief information officer at Budd Van Lines. “Being software-based, Nexenta empowered us to rigorously test their product in the lab first and become comfortable with the solution and its features. Now we cannot believe all the places in which it fits.”
Nexenta’s OpenStorage solutions solve the storage challenges of Big Data by empowering customers to grow and manage their storage capacity cost effectively, while ensuring all of their information is secure today and into the future. With NexentaStor, Budd Van Lines benefits from higher performing storage management, replication, disaster recovery, and the ability to use in-house hardware to make the entire solution cost efficient.

“Budd Van Lines came to us with a common problem – Big Data growth due to the introduction of new applications that are improving their business, but straining their IT systems,” said Evan Powell, CEO, Nexenta. “NexentaStor, with inline compression and deduplication, is the only software-based, enterprise-class unified storage solution capable of solving their video storage challenges as well as their private cloud, replication, and disaster recovery needs all on one system by providing a combination of block and file access. No other solution on the market today comes close to offering that combination of power and flexibility.”
