Technology vendors that figure out how to partner with Microsoft can reap massive benefits, especially if they align well with strategic Microsoft solutions such as Microsoft Azure. In the recent article Why Storage Companies Are Partnering with Microsoft Azure for Cloud Storage, IT news journal Enterprise Storage Forum focuses on Nasuni as the first of the new cloud-era storage software companies that has cracked the code.
Here’s an excerpt from the article that explains why Microsoft sees so much value in our innovative global file system and why our partnership is mutually beneficial:
“How does Nasuni add value? Without a file system, object stores are merely containers, and it is difficult for enterprises to tap their potential for file sharing and collaboration. Nasuni has developed a global file system that lives in and scales with the cloud. Nasuni enterprise file services, powered by the Nasuni UniFS global file system, leverages Azure object storage to provide primary NAS and archive capacity, backup/recovery, disaster recovery (DR) and global file access in one hybrid cloud solution. By storing all metadata and files in Azure first and using on-premises caching appliances to provide fast, secure access only to the active data, it is said to offer unlimited capacity on demand, pay-as-you-grow flexibility, rapid recovery points and recovery times, DR anywhere you have power and bandwidth, file access through any device, file collaboration without version conflict and centralized management.”
By driving more Azure customer wins in Microsoft’s fiscal 2017 than any other vendor in the world, Nasuni has distinguished itself as a marquee Microsoft partner and top driver of Azure cloud consumption. That’s why, at Microsoft Inspire 2017, Nasuni was recognized by Microsoft with four awards, including Microsoft Azure Global ISV of the Year.
We’re happy to be recognized by leading IT publications like Enterprise Storage Forum – and Microsoft themselves – as a prime example of how to have a successful cloud partnership with Microsoft. But we’re even happier about the value we’re delivering to Microsoft Azure customers.
