The Connected Device and the Evolution of NAS

By on February 10, 2015

The connected device has changed the way we live our lives. Take for example our music. Anybody younger than high school age cannot remember a time where music came primarily on physical media, let alone listening to music not digitized into a device (occasional nostalgia for vinyl records notwithstanding). But take that device and connect… Continue Reading »

Groundhog Day – The Storage Version

By on February 2, 2015

We all know the movie – Bill Murray plays an annoyed and despondent weatherman sent to Punxsutawney Pennsylvania to cover Groundhog Day for yet another year! On awaking the ‘following’ day he discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. There are parallels to Groundhog Day with the way we look at IT… Continue Reading »

Overcoming The Data Deluge [Infographic]

By on January 23, 2015

You’ve heard it before: data is growing at an exponential rate. This isn’t news to most individuals in the IT space, but the extent at which all this data is growing is simply astounding. It is predicted that by the year 2020 we will have seen a 4,300 percent increase in annual data generation. Not only are devices,… Continue Reading »

Bigger Isn’t Always the Answer

By on December 23, 2014

In storage we often talk about scalability because ‘more’ and Moore drive big vendor revenue. The variants of Moore’s law for storage are amazing to watch. The amount data we can store and move and the technology required to achieve these constant advancements continues to amaze. Since our file data is always growing we always… Continue Reading »

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.

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 »
