Massive Growth Spurs Nasuni’s DACH Expansion

October 12, 2022 | David Grant Massive Growth Spurs Nasuni’s DACH Expansion

This has already been a tremendous year for Nasuni and today I am very excited to announce a major strategic investment in the DACH market. We have had a significant presence in Europe for many years now, but demand for our file data platform is rapidly expanding across the region as enterprises continue to shift away from network-attached storage and data protection technologies and modernize in the cloud. The rise of hybrid work models, the persistent threat of ransomware and the need for speed in today’s global business world are all accelerating adoption of Nasuni’s file data services platform, and we are seeing tremendous momentum in DACH. A few highlights:

  • Revenue in the first half of 2022, is up 30% compared to all of 2021
  • 2X growth in the number of customers since 2019
  • 3X growth in Nasuni headcount in the region

Our success in the region has centered largely on the manufacturing and automotive verticals that require a new way of delivering file data services to make data accessible anywhere around the globe and protected from any threat. Nasuni has proven transformative across a range of industries, from healthcare to media, and as DACH enterprises aggressively adopt cloud solutions, we want to be certain we have the people and resources ready to capitalize on that interest. To respond to growing demand in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, we not only increased our workforce, but also established core business functions in Germany. One of our recent additions to the Nasuni DACH team is Channel Sales Manager Michael Wappler, who will work alongside Ann Thueland, Head of EMEA Marketing (based in Germany), to nurture and develop our ties with partners in the area.

The driving forces behind our DACH growth are similar to what we are seeing elsewhere around the globe. Enterprises are looking to strengthen cyber resilience, support hybrid work models, and scale cost effectively. The Nasuni File Data Platform delivers on all of that and more and we have a growing list of highly respected customers in the region. One such firm, German engineering giant Vössing, has called Nasuni one of the best IT investments they’ve ever made. “There were three areas where we were looking for new options: file backup, branch disaster recovery and multi-site file collaboration, all separate solutions within a traditional IT infrastructure, but Nasuni solved all three problems for us at once,” says Bernd Gewehr, director of IT at Vössing.

Our DACH investment comes at the perfect time. Nasuni is regularly adding exciting new features, including in-line ransomware detection. We had record-breaking results in 2021. We secured an additional $60 million (€56 million) equity investment in March to fuel our continued growth, launched a new Innovation Centre in Ireland, and acquired the Europe-based company Storage Made Easy in June. I’m excited to see what happens as we put more strategic focus on the DACH region and continue our mission to be the leading global provider of file data services.
