The engineering team here at Nasuni is putting the finishing touches on version 4.4 in preparation for release next week. The updates in this release fall into two main categories: improvements to the Nasuni Filer user interface (UI) and changes to the licensing and installation process.
Regular users of the Nasuni Filer will immediately notice the improvements to the user interface. The overall look is cleaner – content is more organized, colors are more consistent and text is easier to read. While these changes may seem minor, we’ve made it much easier to navigate through the system and execute repeat tasks. More importantly, the changes reflect our commitment to responding to customer feedback and requests for improvement. We heard from our customers that the UI needed some tweaking and we’ve implemented their suggestions.
The second category, changes to licensing and installation of the Nasuni Filer, is designed to improve the security and customer management of multiple filers. We see this change as an improvement in both the product and the customer experience, a win-win for everyone. Especially for companies managing many Nasuni instances in the field, this streamlines and simplifies the process.
The 4.4 release also includes expanded support for the mobile module, which we released in the last update and many customers have adopted with enthusiasm. In this release, we add support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
Lastly, as with all products releases, there are hundreds of changes and bug fixes that most of our customers will never see. With each release your system becomes more mature, stable, and will deliver even more consistent performance.
To our customers, keep the ideas and feedback coming and you may see your ideas announced in a future release.
