May 30, 2023 Cloud-Native Technology As a Service

What does it mean to deliver a technology as a service? The "as a Service" moniker has become an irresistible marketing tag. What we used to call Software as a Service (SaaS) has mushroomed into Web Services, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Cloud Services or just Cloud. The challenge is how to distinguish real “as a Service” technology from cloud-wash or lipstick-on-legacy imitations. Here are 6 things to look for in technology that has been architected to be delivered as a Service.

May 17, 2023 Stop Managing Infrastructure, Start Managing Unstructured File Data

For the last several decades, data has been inextricably bound to hardware. The stewards of data within large organizations were forced to focus on procuring, managing and maintaining the infrastructure on which that data resided. The cloud-driven evolution of capabilities in data storage and protection has rendered much of that once-critical legacy technology obsolete. Organizations can leverage more advanced data services through the cloud and do so without investing in hardware. You can stop managing infrastructure and start managing data.

April 17, 2023 The Data Center is Not the Center: Gartner Analyzes the Future of Unstructured Data Management

The growth of unstructured data is accelerating. More people in more places are creating more files, and for organizations that continue to rely on traditional storage and data protection solutions, this is quickly becoming a very serious problem. At Nasuni we hear about unstructured data growth all the time from new and incoming customers, partners, first-time prospects, and IT leaders who switch to new companies and bring Nasuni with them. Gartner has taken the lead in tracking these trends and advising their clients on how to evaluate infrastructure and operations platforms in preparation for the years ahead.

April 12, 2023 The Unstructured File Data Gold Mine

When people in the technology industry talk about big data, they are typically referring to structured data. If you swipe or tap your credit card at a specific location, the information associated with that transaction will be logged and stored in structured form in a traditional or cloud warehouse. The technology solutions developed to store, analyze, and transform this structured data into business insights and advantages have been tremendously successful over the past decade. The industry has a handle on structured data.

Nasuni recently published a case study detailing how Hybrid Apparel is benefitting from their platform, but I’d like to distill that story to four reasons I prefer Nasuni.

March 16, 2023 Microsoft Q&A: How Nasuni Fits Within the Azure Cloud File Services Portfolio

As part of the launch of our new Buyer’s Guide to Storing Files in Azure, I connected with Tim Kresler, Product Manager at Microsoft Azure. While Azure is certainly an ideal destination for migrating file data off your end-of-life Windows file servers, NetApp, and Dell Isilon, there are multiple file services solutions in the Azure portfolio, and some of them sound the same. So I talked to Tim about Azure file services, what makes Nasuni with Azure Blob object storage unique, and how the partnership between Nasuni and Microsoft has grown over the years.
