Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"One of the factors that ruled out several providers was cost. They were way too expensive for the volume of data that we needed and the speed at which we needed to be able to manage it. There aren't a lot of providers that can do that.""If you just take the street price of Zadara Storage Cloud and look up the price or cost per hour, then you could think that Zadara Storage Cloud is extremely expensive or a solution only for enterprise use. That is not true. You need to compare the entire system. This means that you don't stop looking at just the street price, but you need to consider all the features, requirements, and costs of support as well as the extra cost that other vendors have. Other players just play with hidden, additional costs. Everything is included in Zadara Storage Cloud's licensing cost; what you get is what you pay for.""For our use, it's appropriately priced and overall, it's proved to be very cost-effective against other tier-one vendors.""The pricing and licensing are very simple and the cost is predictable, although, like everything that you pay for as you use, you have to be mindful of what you're using.""It is a nice licensing model and it makes it quite simple because we just pay for what we use, and the bill that comes shows us exactly what customers are using what resources.""The pricing is very competitive and the fact that they have very compelling discounts for multi-year commitments is great."

Overview
Nexenta is the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage - what we call Open Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS).We uniquely integrate software-only "Open Source" collaboration with commodity hardware-centric "Software-Defined Storage" (SDS) innovation.

Zadara is a complete enterprise storage solution because it has all the functionality you expect in enterprise storage — and so much more. It starts with our patented virtualization software running the same industry-leading storage you can buy from a legacy vendor. It’s OpEx, so you pay only for what you use. And it's fully managed by us 24/7. In other words, Zadara can do everything your legacy storage can do, just a whole lot cheaper and easier.

With the Zadara Storage universal solution, you can deploy storage of any data type (block, file, object), in any location (cloud, on-premise, hybrid - worldwide), and via any protocol (FC, iSCSI, iSER, NFS, CIFS, S3, Swift).
