Nasuni’s Customer Base Grew 78 Percent in Q2 2011
Storage Services Company Experiences Strong Growth in All Key Verticals, Including Manufacturing, Engineering, Legal and Education
NATICK, Mass. – September 15, 2011 – Nasuni®, the leading provider of storage data services, announced today that the company experienced strong growth in the second quarter of 2011, increasing its customer base by 78 percent and pushing the number of customers it serves to more than 100. The amount of data that Nasuni protects for its customers in terabyte increments also grew by more than 130% and much of this growth was driven by the existing customer base.
Customer growth was strong across all of Nasuni’s key vertical markets, including manufacturing, architecture, engineering, construction, legal and education. In addition, a significant number of existing customers expanded their use of Nasuni by adding more virtual appliances to support remote offices or in-field consulting groups.
Nasuni’s market traction reflects the serious challenges posed by accelerating data growth to enterprise IT. According to a Gartner press release regarding a November 2010 report on 2011 data center trends, “Data growth is the biggest data center hardware infrastructure challenge for large enterprises.”
The pain of managing that data and ensuring that the enterprise has enough capacity to handle exponential data growth has led IT decision makers to look at alternatives to traditional on-site and off-site solutions. In addition, enterprises are looking for ways to simplify data storage with a unified approach to reduce cost and overhead. But except for large organizations with truly massive storage needs, pure cloud storage providers have largely neglected to provide the kind of customer service, security and control over data that enterprises require.
Nasuni’s data services for storage appeals to these customers because it provides a solution with the benefits of cloud storage – unlimited capacity, automatic backup and offsite storage – while simultaneously providing the on-premise control via a virtual appliance, security through the encryption of all data, and 100 percent data availability backed by the industry’s most stringent storage service level agreement.
Nasuni’s market momentum continues into Q3, as it added hardware options for customers to access its storage services and accelerated the growth of its channel program that allows resellers to deliver innovative storage solutions and also affords them best in class deal registration and protection, online sales and technical certification, and co-marketing activity.
“The enterprise wants to embrace cloud storage, but raw cloud storage does not provide the level of security, service or control that IT demands,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “Nasuni addresses this by bringing storage services right to the edge of an organization’s infrastructure to deliver a complete, secure enterprise-grade solution that unifies primary storage with built-in backup and offsite replication. Our growth in Q2 and the intense interest from the channel community in our service offering is a testament to the strength of this new industry and the market need for secure, reliable and cost-effective cloud storage.”
Nasuni, the leading provider of storage services, offers a new breed of data protection, accessibility and support to organizations that require their data be available 100 percent of the time with no risk of data loss. Nasuni’s storage services network offers IT an all-in-one solution that unifies primary data storage, offsite disaster recovery, and data backup with a 100 percent reliability guarantee that is supported by the storage industry’s most stringent service level agreement. With Nasuni, organizations can simplify IT, ensure business continuity, and reduce the total cost of storage. For more information, visit www.nasuni.com.
