NexentaStor is an OpenSolaris distribution optimized for virtualization, storage area networks, network-attached storage, and iSCSI or Fibre Channel applications employing the ZFS file system. Like OpenSolaris, NexentaStor is a Unix-like operating system. Nexenta Systems started NexentaStor as a fork of another OpenSolaris distribution, illumos. NexentaStor supports iSCSI, unlimited incremental backups ('snapshots'), snapshot mirroring (replication), continuous data protection, integrated search within ZFS snapshots, and an API. Nexenta distributes the operating system as a disk image. The cost of a license is calculated per terabyte or per server.[2] The Community Edition is available free of charge for users with less than 18 terabytes of used disk space who deploy the operating system in a non-production environment.[3]

Community Edition
NexentaStor Community Edition includes all the common storage area network features of the production version, but if the amount of disk data addressed by the system exceeds 18TB, the operating system locks most administration functions. Features excluded from the Community Edition: Auto sync and continuous data protection Cloud storage archive Cluster software Namespace cluster Target for virtual logical unit number mapping Virtual Machine Direct Connect (VMDC) Write once read many (WORM)
