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.
“As an experienced AWS customer, it just made sense that we look to the AWS Marketplace for solutions that fit out needs. In this case, wanted one that would enable us to radically decrease the complexity and costs associated with our current file storage and protection infrastructure. Nasuni not only had a compelling cloud-based file service platform, the AWS Marketplace let us select from a set of predefined configurations with custom sizing, making a typically complex process incredible easy. Nasuni’s availability on AWS Marketplace simplified the entire process of vetting, selecting, purchasing and producing. ”
“The best thing about this solution is the ability to bring your corporate data and integrate with the entire set of AWS resources and solutions. Additionally, using Nasuni in combination with AWS Workspaces allows us to use AWS as a failover site, and allows us to use VDI solutions designed for public clouds like AWS. Having a Nasuni Filer at AWS allows us to bring corporate data next to servers running at AWS, but also allows us to utilize virtual desktop solutions based on AWS that need low latency access to project files. Nutanix frame is one of those. Also, having a master filer running at AWS provides another layer of protection to your Nasuni infrastructure. It holds the ownership of Nasuni Volumes and can serve as backup file server for failover scenarios.”
“Nasuni is helping us to seamlessly share files globally – it’s been very helpful given the distributed nature of our org..”
“By using Nasuni in conjunction with our AWS cloud, we have established a high degree of disaster recoverability. We rely on the combination of the two platforms to safeguard virtually all of our working data and past snapshots for quick and easy recovery. Nasuni makes it easy to configure a sophisticated system with very little effort which can be relied upon in the most trying of times. A very basic working knowledge of AWS is all that is needed to get everything working in conjunction. There is very strong Nasuni support network that is available within minutes of a mission critical scenario which escalates things directly to level engineers almost instantly.”
“The AWS Workspaces & Nasuni combination benefit us by making it easier to manage storage for users in diverse locations. We love the easy management and access control. It allows superior revision control of the user data. Simple management of multiple storage devices in myriad locations is a huge plus. Excellent support from Nasuni makes trouble shooting a breeze. Speedy access to data makes our users happy. Having the data in the same geographic location as the AWS Workspaces guarantees speedy access to user data. ”
