Imation, Nexsan’s parent company, has recently undergone a major reorganization, designed to give it greater focus and make it competitive in a tough storage market.

ZeroStack technology significantly reduces both private cloud deployment time and costs as well as the cost of operations by putting the user work flows and operations in the cloud, while the infrastructure and software to manage it are on prem. They are also selling entirely through channel partners.
EMC’s Data Lake 2.0 significantly enhances the original core-focused Data Lake strategy by extending it to the edge and the cloud, as well as strengthening the core. This is also likely to expand partner opportunities somewhat beyond the very limited involvement thought likely when the original Data lake was announced.
