Nasuni Picked as Top 5 Storage Solution for Healthcare

January 19, 2022 | Mike Pacheco Nasuni Picked as Top 5 Storage Solution for Healthcare

Growth of unstructured file data across industries has been one of the primary engines driving our success over the past ten-plus years. Every industry vertical is dealing with file growth, but it’s no surprise that healthcare is seeing more challenges than most. The rapid increase in the size and complexity of medical images, PACS systems, and organizational file shares has revealed the fundamental limitations of traditional storage.

But with healthcare, it’s not just about storing files. Today’s healthcare organizations need these files to be accessible very quickly. They need to facilitate collaboration between providers in different locations. And they need to protect this data effectively while meeting compliance and data privacy regulations.

It definitely takes a very special storage solution to navigate the needs of modern healthcare organizations, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been recognized as a top five provider by the IT analyst and research firm, DCIG.

DCIG Cites 3 Key Capabilities

The DCIG report summarizes: “Nasuni cleverly combines the best of distributed file storage and cloud object storage to bring customers both the unlimited on-demand capacity and economics of the cloud. Combined with a comprehensive data protection strategy for backup, DR and ransomware, their solution is able to scale to the needs of modern healthcare images and file storage systems.” DCIG cites three capabilities in particular:

1. Scale: Cloud-based scaling, capacity, and economics

2. Speed: Distributed file access with fast edge performance

3. Simplicity: Natively integrated backup, DR, and ransomware protection

The report offers more detail on each, but these capabilities capture our core values perfectly. The combination of our technology and our partnerships with leading cloud providers like AWS, Azure, and Google means we can deliver a truly unprecedented combination of scale and savings. Nasuni’s unique architecture ensures that our customers can maintain fast access to files, while supporting global collaboration and radically simplifying their IT environment. Healthcare organizations that switch to Nasuni can manage storage, global file sharing, data protection, and more, in one compliant platform. Simply put, we’re making life a lot easier for IT.

Take a look at the DCIG report, which includes their take on other top file storage providers, along with more information on Nasuni. To see what happens in practice, check out how this medical imaging leader not only reduced their costs by 50% by switching to Nasuni, but gave clinicians high-performance access to their medical images without latency.

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.
