Modern Cloud Consolidation

Nasuni eliminates risks and dependencies on vulnerable NAS and file server hardware, particularly in remote, inhospitable locations. Modern energy producers and service providers consolidate all business file data, including extremely large seismic data, 3D CAD renderings, and interpretation models across remote locations in a single global namespace. At the same time, Nasuni makes cached copies of file data accessible at local network speeds through lightweight edge appliances.

Faster Time-to-Oil

Nasuni enables exploration sites, drilling fields, corporate offices, and remote geologists to access file data from regional, fast, secure, consolidated cloud storage (e.g. Amazon S3, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage, etc.) instead of multiple, on-premises file servers or NAS arrays. Nasuni greatly reduces the friction built into today’s seismic interpretation process by providing faster, more reliable global access to the data required to make critical and expensive drilling decisions.

Cloud Economics with No More Backups

Energy firms reduce file storage costs by 50% by eliminating NAS and file server hardware along with the mountain of backup and DR infrastructure, and the overwhelming amount of time required by IT. Nasuni replaces traditional backup with modern, built-in file ‘snapshots’ so files can be restored to any point in time from a drop-down menu within minutes. Recovery points (RPO) are reduced to minutes, and recovery times (RTO) are reduced to seconds. What’s more, IT can recover from equipment failures and natural disasters at any location in as little as 15 minutes (not days).

Customers

The world’s biggest brands have prepared for the future by modernizing their file storage and data protection with Nasuni.

An important benefit for Ithaca Energy in deploying Nasuni is the future-proof approach it provides. We do not have to go through a refresh every three to five years or purchase large volumes of tapes. These benefits offered cost efficiencies that played a critical role in our selection of Nasuni.

Malcolm Brown, IT Operations Manager, Ithaca Energy

Penspen’s shift to Nasuni delivered real value as we transitioned our entire global workforce to a working from home model without having to worry about disrupting project delivery, global collaboration or productivity.

Andrew Bond, Director of IT, Penspen

We’ve had a few issues with files or folders that caught ransomware, but we caught it quickly and rolled back to the last Nasuni snapshot within a few hours. Nasuni saves you that time of going offsite, getting tapes, bringing them back, cutting open the tapes, reading them. With Nasuni, it’s just a quick click a box and go, and then all the files are back.

Michael Norman, Infrastructure Engineer, Penspen

To support its growing business, Ithaca Energy traded traditional file infrastructure for scalable, cost-effective cloud file storage.
