I was at VMworld last week and bumped in to the Nexenta team. They told me about this great promotion they are running (limited time!) for NexentaConnect. NexentaConnect provides you NFS storage on top of VSAN, Cormac wrote an article about it a while back which I suggest reading. The promotion gives you NexentaConnect for $ 0,- and that includes:
- NexentaConnect for VMware Virtual SAN license (s)
- Unlimited raw storage capacity to match VMware VSAN Licenses
- Nexenta technical support for first 12 months included
Now I have seen many companies giving away software for free, but can’t recall having seen anyone include free support for 12 months. If you are a Virtual SAN user, or about to deploy/implement Virtual SAN, and looking to include some form of file services on top of it, then NexentaConnect may just be what you are looking for. I definitely recommend giving it a try, it is free and comes with support… what more can you ask for?
