Features

Nasuni® is a file services platform built for the cloud.  Powered by the world’s only global file system, Nasuni consolidates NAS and file server silos in cloud storage, delivering infinite scale, built-in backup, global file sharing, and local file server performance – all at half the cost of tradition file infrastructures.
