July 26, 2022 The Mendacious Magic of Cloud Tiering

In the words of the great Arthur C. Clarke, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This is a brilliant maxim, but it doesn’t mean that a solution which appears to be magical must be backed by sufficiently advanced technology. Instead, the inverse is often true, and companies develop simple, appealing, even magical taglines to mask the underlying flaws and complexity of their technology.

July 19, 2022 New Beginnings: Realizing Potential

As one journey comes to an end, a new chapter begins with Nasuni. I have always felt that there had to be a better way to surface data, protect data, while making data searchable, productive, and accessible for any employee regardless of what type of data and where it is located. The combination of Nasuni and SME provides that solution.

June 07, 2022 VMware Highlights Nasuni as Horizon File Data Solution

This has been an exciting year for Nasuni on several fronts. We’ve signed on some of the largest companies in the world as new customers. Our existing customers are expanding their use of the platform. The investment community has given us another huge vote of confidence, our rapid ransomware recovery capabilities are pulling in unprecedented business, and our engineering team continues adding new features to the platform. As the VP of Strategic Alliances, though, I’m particularly excited about how our partnerships with some of the top technology providers in the world continue to get stronger.

May 24, 2022 The Sanctity of Data: Why I Joined Nasuni

If the energy industry teaches IT professionals one thing, it’s the importance of respecting the sanctity of data. Whether you devote internal resources to acquire seismic data or purchase it from another organization, this data is gold. Highly paid geoscientists and engineers need to be able to analyze it quickly and securely, wherever they might be in the world. If this data is lost, corrupted, or incomplete, these professionals can’t do their jobs, and the company loses money.

May 17, 2022 One Global Customer’s Cloud Journey

Our customers typically come to us with an eye on solving one or two major, pressing problems. Maybe a StorSimple array is approaching EOL or they need to exit a handful of data centers. A ransomware incident may have sparked their interest. Or it could be that the high costs and extreme hassle of managing backup across multiple locations sent them searching for a more efficient cloud alternative.

May 10, 2022 You Asked, We Listened:  Nasuni File Data Platform 9.7 Delivers Ransomware Detection & Performance Dashboards

The product team at Nasuni is constantly working to make the platform simpler, faster, and more powerful, but our new 9.7 release reflects one of the company’s larger guiding principles: at Nasuni, we truly listen intently to our customers. On the product team, we want to understand what’s important to them and what they would like to see from the platform.

May 04, 2022 What We Get Wrong About Ransomware

Information security focuses its efforts around three pillars: prevention, detection and recovery. With ransomware, the first two receive far more attention than the third. This misguided focus results from a lack of understanding about how ransomware really works. This article will explain how ransomware operates at the file system level, how this impacts ransomware recovery and why paying the ransom is not a viable option.

May 03, 2022 Accelerating Multi-Cloud Migrations at the Petabyte Scale

The UniFS cloud-native file system, the Nasuni Analytics Connector, Global File Acceleration and the many other tools that power our file services platform have all been conceived and built in-house. But, as we continue to grow our base of multi-PB customers, and more of these large global companies adopt multi-cloud strategies, Nasuni made the unusual but exciting decision to accelerate our capabilities through an acquisition. The product team is extremely excited to onboard the technology of DBM Systems and expertise of Dr. Joseph Slember to ramp up our cloud-to-cloud migrations.

April 26, 2022 Simple Migrations, Scale & Savings with Google Cloud

A year has passed since we announced our strategic partnership with Google Cloud and I’m thrilled to report that the first 12 months have been a tremendous success. The goal of the partnership was to provide more organizations with simple, reliable, low-cost enterprise file storage, and we truly hit the ground running. We recently achieved Premier Partner Status within the first twelve months and our deal flow has exceeded our expectations.

April 13, 2022 7 Things That Take Longer than Restoring a Million Files 

The rise and evolution of ransomware is throwing a pretty harsh spotlight on the recovery times of traditional file data protection. Recovering from a ransomware attack using traditional backup can take days or weeks. Even if you have a modern online backup solution, you’re still in for some serious headaches.
