BELLEVUE, Wash., March 28, 2017 -- OSNEXUS announced that its QuantaStor SDS Backup and Archive Solution has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers (https://marketplace.cisco.com/catalog/companies/osnexus/products/osnexus-quantastor-backup-archive-sds). The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, OSNEXUS is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

QuantaStor Software Defined Storage appliances are designed with the high-availability and scale-out features required for business-critical environments while simplifying the archive, backup and recovery process. The QuantaStor SDS Backup and Archive Solution protects critical data in the event of a major hardware or software failure that could be caused by events ranging from human error to a natural disaster. With OSNEXUS grid technology, QuantaStor can also be deployed as a highly-available grid of appliances to deliver up to 64PB of storage in a single scale-out filesystem accessible via major protocols including NFS and CIFS/SMB.

"One of the most compelling use cases for QuantaStor SDS is automating the backup and archiving of business-critical data," said Steve Umbehocker, CEO of OSNEXUS. "The combination of the QuantaStor SDS Backup and Archive Solution with Cisco's UCS C-Series Rack Servers enables OSNEXUS to offer customers a highly-available data storage and protection solution for any use case."
