Release date- 27012014 - SANTA CLARA, California and LONDON, UK - Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage) solutions, today announced a distribution deal with leading UK distributor Getech Ltd.

The agreement is set to disrupt the UK storage market, providing more enterprises with access to a SDS solution that provides innovative enterprise features at a significantly lower cost than the traditional storage vendors.

Getech works with most of the leading resellers throughout the country, wrapping its superior value-added services solutions and provides and helps all of its vendor partners to dramatically grow their market share.

'Nexenta is looking forward to working with Getech as we take Software Defined Storage technology mainstream in the UK market. We want to disrupt the MESS (massively expensive storage systems) providers that are currently holding storage users hostage,' states Tarkan Maner, Nexenta CEO. 'With data volumes growing at record rates and austerity biting hard, customers are looking for innovative and cost effective approaches to storage and data management.'

Guy Watts, Managing Director, Getech Ltd, said: 'Nexenta's SDS solution offers an exciting opportunity for us in the storage arena. Our goal is to disrupt the stranglehold that the likes of NetApp and EMC have on the market. After meeting and speaking to a number of key resellers and customers it is clear the market is keen to explore new alternatives to the big hardware storage providers. The software-defined world offers a real alternative and Nexenta's storage is underpinning the data centre of the future. As with all the solutions we supply, Getech will be offering a fully certified technical support team to support the roll out of Nexenta, providing a total supply and support service.'

NAS UK Ltd, one of Nexenta's largest UK resellers, welcome the appointment of Getech. Barry Griffiths, Managing Director of NAS (UK) Ltd, concluded: 'Nexenta's Software Defined Storage platform NexentaStor enables us to disrupt the vendor lock in commonly associated with industry giants such as EMC and NetApps. It also allows us to deliver well supported, high performance, feature rich and flexible scale out solutions for our demanding Enterprise customer base using affordable, commodity, server and storage hardware from tier 1 partners such as Dell.'
