The Enterprise Edition of NexentaStor is expected to be released on the 31st of March and will feature, for example, commercial plug-ins and High Availability (HA) Clustering.
More details about the latest NexentaStor Community Edition can be found in the release announcement. NexentaStor 3.0.0 CE is available to download as a CD or VMware image. According to the developers, a Xen image "will be available shortly".
