Nasuni Cost Savings

Nasuni uses affordable object storage and an intelligent caching architecture to reduce the IT capital costs of file storage. Add in the operational savings from improved IT efficiency; productivity gains from faster multi-site sharing; reduced downtime due to ransomware, disasters, and other file loss events; and accelerated strategic initiatives like M&A and digital transformation, and the savings multiply.

Here are 3 ways to find out how much Nasuni can save your organization.

Use Our Quick Savings Estimator

Want a quick idea of how much Nasuni can save?

Use this estimator to calculate just the capital cost savings. Fill in the 3 fields to see what eliminating or reducing traditional NAS, file server, backup, archive, disaster recovery, remote access, replication, and file transfer infrastructure can do for your bottom line.

Costs of traditional file infrastructure assume:

  • Traditional NAS or file servers used in the data center for primary file storage
  • File servers used in remote offices to provide local storage
  • Storage refresh will be needed within the 3-year period
  • A subset of file data is shared between main and remote offices
  • Traditional backup is used to protect files, with annual maintenance costs of 20%
  • A remote site or co-location facility is used for disaster recovery

Costs of file infrastructure modernization wth Nasuni and cloud storage assume:

  • Nasuni cost evenly distributed over 3-year subscription term
  • Object storage cost evenly distributed over 3-year subscription term
  • Nasuni de-duplication and compression reduces amount of object storage capacity needed by 40%

Request a Business Value Assessment

Want a detailed cost analysis custom-built for your organization? Our before-and-after spreadsheet model, based on the popular Alinean format started at Gartner, calculates all the potential capital, operational, and productivity savings based on your inputs. It shows what business-as-usual file infrastructure will cost you over the next 3 years compared to modernization with Nasuni and private or public cloud storage.

All it takes is a short interview – and you’ll get the spreadsheet afterward to continue customizing.

The Nasuni Business Value Assessment is a complimentary service for enterprises that want to understand the cost savings and benefits that can be achieved by refreshing traditional file infrastructure with a modern global file system coupled with public or private cloud object storage.
