File Storage – The Stack is Odd Against You

By on November 19, 2014

Wait what? Isn’t that ‘the odds are stacked against you’? Yes, that too, but actually I wanted to address how odd today’s storage stack has become. It’s a mishmash of technologies layered on one after the other, each designed to address a shortcoming of its predecessor, none fully solving the problem. It reminds me a… Continue Reading »

Just What Is File Data Virtualization?

By on October 17, 2014

You haven’t heard of File Data Virtualization until now? That’s OK. At Nasuni we are here to change that. Given that we created the term earlier this year, I am not surprised you haven’t heard of it. What I am pleasantly surprised by is the number of people who now know it and how well… Continue Reading »

Cloud Storage: DON’T Do It Yourself!

By on October 1, 2014

Around my house, I have quite the reputation as a do-it-yourselfer. Unfortunately, it’s not a good reputation. So when the front steps need to be fixed or the walkway has to be replaced, my family tells me to slowly lay down the Sawzall and back away. Some IT departments might be tempted to take a… Continue Reading »

Collaboration with Global File Locking

By on September 24, 2014

As companies have become more geographically distributed, collaboration among employees at different locations has become a fact of life. IT infrastructure has struggled to keep up with this trend. Employees working together in different locations need to share files and information they are working with to collaborate, but there has been no good way to… Continue Reading »

Are You Ready?

By on September 5, 2014

Are you ready for some football? Opening day is Sunday and I certainly am. This sign is not just something that I found on the net, it’s on a bookshelf in my living room as (mostly) a joke from my wife. I was not a sports fanatic growing up, but I became a football fan… Continue Reading »

Was Azure Down?

By on September 3, 2014

Was Azure down? This was the reaction of Nasuni customers to the recent azure outage . To be honest, I am speculating as to their reaction because we did not log a single support incident as a result of the outage. This despite the fact that The Nasuni Service uses Azure to provide management services… Continue Reading »

The Many Faces of Virtualization

By on August 27, 2014

It’s that time of year again, when most of the IT world does one of two things: enjoy a final week of vacation before everything kicks off again after Labor Day … or attend VMworld. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger opened his keynote with a speech that repeated “brave” as mantra, specifically, “brave new IT.” It… Continue Reading »

Storage that’s bigger on the inside and can travel through time? Must be a TARDIS.

By on August 22, 2014

I recently had the pleasure of being on a panel at the ILTA 2014 Educational Conference. At the conference they open the exhibit hall the first night with a comic-con theme, which is a lot of fun. Exhibitors and attendees dress themselves and their booths like it’s comic-con so there are all sorts of sci-fi and super-hero… Continue Reading »

And Then There Were Three

By on August 18, 2014

Everyone has a view of the IaaS market as of late, at least if you go by Twitter and the major trades. In particular, a recent Network World story caused quite a stir, because it described Rackspace’s decision to sell “managed services” as a retreat from the commodity IaaS market.   At Nasuni, we see this… Continue Reading »

Cloud Storage: The Most Important Part Isn’t the Storage

By on August 13, 2014

Cloud storage is an amazing technology. The cloud storage provided by Amazon, Microsoft and others offers an unlimited pool of raw storage that can grow on demand and never needs to be backed up. Cloud storage is intrinsically redundant, protected and scalable. You definitely want to consider it for your enterprise. But the most important… Continue Reading »
