Reliable, scalable storage is a key component of cloud deployments. Those deploying an infrastructure cloud frequently opt for network-attached storage (NAS) over local storage, to make it simpler to implement enterprise-grade features.
By combining OpenStack Compute, today's industry-standard open source cloud platform, with NexentaStor, the most popular open storage solution, companies can build clouds that are feature rich, avoid vendor lock-in, offer complete control of the stack, and reduce costs by unlocking the ability to use less expensive commodity hardware.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Boris Renski, Co-Founder & Executive Vice President of Mirantis, will discuss how Mirantis, a leader in engineering services for OpenStack Cloud, and Nexenta, which provides enterprise-class storage solutions, integrated NexentaStor with OpenStack Compute.
Operationally responsible for Mirantis' marketing strategy, he works to ensure that the marketing dollars the company spends don't just promote Mirantis' brand, but also help further global awareness of the OpenStack community as a whole. To that effect Mirantis is a regular sponsor of OpenStack summits, promotes OpenStack at unaffiliated trade shows such as CloudConnect and OSCON and helps facilitate regional meet-ups in the Bay Area, Washington DC, Russia and Ukraine.
Renski continuously helps evangelize OpenStack community by regularly blogging about it (blog.mirantis.com), talking on behalf of the community at various conferences and engaging in business development activities to attract new member companies and contributors.
During 15 years of his professional career he held several executive positions with technology companies he helped establish. He was a founder and CEO of Selectosa Systems - an IT consulting company which was subsequently acquired in 2006; and is a co-founder and angel investor at AGroup.lv - now a venture backed enterprise software company headquartered in Europe.
