Cloud storage upstart Nasuni has been granted a patent for its UniFS file system, which layers a filesystem onto a public cloud storage provider’s object storage systems.
On-premises backup is expensive, complex and a bear to manage. To be safe, you need multiple layers of backup, what EMC calls Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), and every one of these tiers need to be built and maintained. Large enterprises often begin with a SAN and then add tiers to backup the SAN – sometimes in essence a whole other SAN. Nasuni says it can replace of these tiers with its cloud storage platform – they’ll do the grunt work for you so you can devote IT time to more forward thinking projects.
Nasuni, a provider of enterprise storage-as-a-service, has received US patent 8,566,362 on the core file system used in its Nasuni Filer products. The file system is UniFS, and unlike most object store file systems, it generates a stream of snapshots that can take the place of backup systems, according to CEO Andres Rodriguez. "It's a file system born for the cloud," he said in an interview at Amazon's Re:Invent event in Las Vegas last week.
