Storage Controller

“We found that from a functionality and performance standpoint, the Nasuni Storage Controller (Filer) was better than our current infrastructure. At first, I had a hard time believing a storage solution that securely incorporated the cloud could match the performance of a local NAS.” – Matt Donehoo, Director of IT

At the heart of the Nasuni offering is our on-premises storage controller, the Nasuni Filer, which provides both the point of control and access for shared storage in Nasuni deployments. Available through a variety of protocols (CIFS/NFS/iSCSI/HTTPS), the Nasuni storage controller delivers storage capacity for NAS or SAN workloads and will support files, databases, and even VM storage – it’s the perfect storage solution for remote and branch offices. Fully integrated to Active Directory, the Nasuni Filer enforces access using the methods already deployed in the enterprise. The storage controller also manages the critical link to cloud storage and shared volumes of data. Using best-of-breed compression and deduplication technologies, Nasuni can ensure that traffic over the wire is kept to a minimum and end users can store and share large datasets without impacting your existing WAN bandwidth. The Nasuni Filer provides the complete suite of enterprise-grade storage functionality needed in remote and branch locations.

  • Support for NAS and SAN workloads (CIFS/NFS/iSCSI)
  • Access to files through the Nasuni Mobile app (HTTPS)
  • Unlimited snapshot history – eliminating the need for backup
  • Integration with Active Directory and support for multiple forests
