Topic: Cloud Gateway/Storage Controller
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.
Natick, Mass.-based Nasuni, a cloud-based data storage service firm, was awarded a patent that covers the company’s core technology and ensures that Nasuni’s file system can grow indefinitely without the capacity limits of traditional hardware-based file systems, the company announced Thursday.
Nasuni Corp. today rolled out its first cloud storage controller with flash storage and unveiled a virtual machine that works on Amazon EC2, Amazon S3 and Microsoft Windows Azure clouds.
Call them cloud controllers, cloud storage enablement or maybe cloud-integrated storage. Just don't call them cloud storage gateways, at least not when you're talking to any of the vendors who sell these intelligent cloud storage systems.
