Move File Storage to the Cloud with AWS & Nasuni
With the power of AWS and Nasuni, you get everything you need to get started with moving your files to the cloud including backups, high performance local access, and 15-minute disaster recovery. With the world’s only global file system, UniFS®, Nasuni consolidates Network Attached Storage (NAS) and file server silos in the cloud all at half the cost of traditional file infrastructures.
Nasuni & AWS Solutions
Combined with cloud object storage, Nasuni provides VDI file storage that costs up to 50% less, and offers greater scalability, higher performance, and more flexibility than hardware-centric file services built on traditional NAS file server, backup, replication, and disaster recovery technologies.
The world’s biggest brands have prepared for the future by modernizing their file storage and data protection with AWS and Nasuni.
“The AWS and Nasuni solution saves our resources on site, allows access from anywhere in the world, removes hassle from our site, and gives us some breathing room by allowing the maintenance to be on another provider. ”
“When we ran file servers on-premise we had to worry about backups and restores. Moving to Nasuni + AWS has made this a thing of the past. ”
“Nasuni is helping us to seamlessly share files globally – it’s been very helpful given the distributed nature of our org.”
“The thing we like most about the Nasuni + AWS solution is Uptime. We have 100 percent uptime off all shares all the time. If people makes mistakes with a file or folder, due to editing or deletion we can restore any folder or any file every 2 minutes. There is nothing like Nasuni out there that has the performance or redundancy like this.”
“The AWS and Nasuni combination has had a huge improvement on our ability to provision storage on demand. The snapshot feature allows us to retrieve previous versions of files in seconds, no need to access tapes from storage. We also have piece of mind that data is spread across multiple data centers providing us with much needed HA.”
“Being able to have users across the country and globe access and share files via the cloud and AWS has worked well beyond expectations. One of the things we find most valuable is how quickly we can restore a deleted file. An unexpected byproduct of this feature is the ransomware protection that Nasuni provides as well.”
“The performance we see from Nasuni on AWS so far has been great, much better than expected by myself and the user community. The fast storage in mix with bigger faster internet pipes to facilitate updating the cache has increase performance and response time to the Nasuni filers in comparison to on prem filers. On top of that we can get significantly more users per filer.”
“Nasuni and AWS just work together. If you can set up an S3 bucket, you can connect Nasuni into it and start using this like traditional storage. No extra need for APIs (unless you want to) to make things work. It's like having the best of a traditional file server, with all the benefits of what Nasuni does (Web, SFTP, Backups, etc.) all built in.”
“We’re considering using filers to replace file servers for AWS in-Region needs. Nasuni + AWS is extremely easy to manage, immutable storage offers easy ransomware recovery, and it's integration with Varonis eliminates the costs and permits full file system scans without any performance impact.”
