Accelerate Research Collaboration

At many large pharmaceutical and life sciences companies, file data is siloed at different locations, rendering efficient file sharing and collaboration all but impossible. By modernizing with Nasuni’s global file system, industry-leading firms are accelerating research collaboration and global workflows. High-speed file synchronization ensures the latest copies of files are rapidly available to every global site, reducing transfer times for large files from hours to minutes or even seconds.

Unlimited, On-Demand Capacity

Critical research and manufacturing processes generate unstructured data at a scale that traditional storage cannot manage cost-effectively. New projects can place unexpected strains on traditional infrastructure, forcing unexpected capacity upgrades. With Nasuni, every site has access to unlimited, on-demand file storage capacity in the cloud, allowing companies to expand as needed and meet the needs of research and business units with speed and efficiency.

Reduce Global Hardware Footprint

Our pharmaceutical and life sciences customers store PBs of file data in the cloud. Previously, these files were typically siloed at dozens or even 100+ locations around the world. Nasuni consolidates all file data in the cloud, which simplifies management, strengthens security, enables unmatched file sharing and collaboration, and drastically reduces hardware. Our customers have exited major data centers, shut down DR locations, consolidated dozens of remote sites into a handful of regional locations, and more.

Reduce Risk Across All Global Sites

The file growth common to many large pharma and life sciences firms also strains existing backup and disaster recovery (DR) plans. Large data sets are difficult to back up within a reasonable window, leaving sites vulnerable to outages, data loss, and ransomware attacks. This research data is one of a company’s most valuable assets, and Nasuni makes it easier to protect in a robust, resilient manner with backup-less, continuous file versioning to the cloud and cloud-based 15-minute DR.

Leverage Cloud Applications

By consolidating global file data in the cloud with Nasuni, our pharmaceutical and life science clients have the ability to securely leverage third-party cloud applications to uncover hidden insights. A cloud-based file system also prepares firms for an hardware-light future in which more user applications shift to the cloud, where they can operate closer to key file data, resulting in optimal performance.


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

Moving our 3D tomography images to the Nasuni/Azure platform has protected our capital budget from large and lengthy storage procurement requests every two to three years. In the first year alone, we estimate we saved $1.2 -1.3 million in storage costs with the Nasuni/Azure solution.
