Three years ago, Nasuni made a decision to center our file storage and data protection service around Microsoft Azure, and this choice has had a tremendous impact. On a strategic level, the move has allowed us to leverage the Microsoft field, channel and Go-To-Market (GTM) Services team. Tapping into these kinds of resources has been invaluable for a fast-growing business like ours.
And the results are clear. This past year alone, aligning with Microsoft’s GTM team helped us increase overall revenue by 80% and new customer acquisition by 120%.
We’ve also seen the tremendous power of the Azure brand. The combination of Azure technology, Microsoft’s trusted name and the broad capabilities of Nasuni Enterprise File Services has led to several exciting new partnerships. “With Nasuni being in Microsoft Azure, it just makes our lives easier,” says Jeff Keel, IT Manager for law firm Foran Glennon Palandech Ponzi & Rudloff.
“With Nasuni and the Azure cloud, we can take advantage of the vast resources in Microsoft’s huge datacenters, which is especially vital for a small IT team like ours.”
The Field Museum, a leading exhibitor and an active scientific research institution, chose Nasuni and Microsoft Azure to efficiently store files as it digitizes its collection of 30 million items. “With Nasuni and the Azure cloud, we can take advantage of the vast resources in Microsoft’s huge datacenters, which is especially vital for a small IT team like ours, as we must support not just storage but also a wide range of stakeholders, applications, and operations,” says Rob Zschernitz, Chief Technology Officer at the Field Museum.
The event component of working with Microsoft has been hugely beneficial, too. We hosted more than 20 Azure events at Microsoft Technology Centers around the world. And we’re planning to do many more.
