Enhancing Storage, Protection, Access and Management with a Unified Global File System

Sound United reduces IT workloads by unifying global storage infrastructure into a single platform with Nasuni

Sound United, the maker of high-end audio equipment brands such as Marantz, Denon and Polk Audio, and the parent company of D+M Group, is a global company providing innovative, high quality sound solutions. With nearly 1,000 employees spread across Asia, North America and Europe, Sound United was facing rising storage and backup costs, struggling with data protection, and failing to meet the file sharing and access demands of users. The company’s growth-through-acquisition strategy created additional IT challenges. At one point, D+M had 62 offices with 62 different storage solutions. Once IT began looking for alternatives, Nasuni was the only platform that met and even exceeded their requirements, and at a fraction of the cost. Sound United now has one infinitely scalable solution for storing, protecting, and accessing all of its unstructured data.
