Business continuity at a fraction of the cost of legacy HA cluster SAN solutions – without sacrificing enterprise storage capabilities.

Impulse Advanced Communications Case Study "We replaced EMC with Nexenta, which was superior and provided best-in-class features. The license and support cost was actually less than the support cost renewal of the EMC storage appliance."
 – Jessie Bryan, Impulse, Dir. of Systems Engineering
