Nasuni Promotes David Grant to Chief Commercial Officer
Enterprise Cloud File Storage Leader Advances CMO to Oversee Nasuni’s Go-to-Market Operations
BOSTON – July 28, 2021 – Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today announced the promotion of David Grant to Chief Commercial Officer. For two years, Grant held the position of Chief Marketing Officer and in his new role, he will be responsible for all of Nasuni’s go-to-market activities across sales, marketing and alliances.
“We are coming off a record year for Nasuni disrupting the massive enterprise file storage market with a cloud-based approach. Even before 2020, enterprises had to change the way they enabled remote access to data but the pandemic put fuel on that fire,” said Paul Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer at Nasuni. “Dave has been an integral part of what we’ve accomplished and the sales and marketing machine he’s built will drive our aggressive growth rates.”
In his prior role, Grant was responsible for lead generation, brand, sales enablement and alliances. As Chief Commercial Officer, he will also oversee Nasuni’s global sales, channel, account management and sales engineering operations.
Grant has more than 20 years of experience leading marketing for enterprise software companies at all stages of growth, including multi-billion dollar enterprises. He has proven that he can help innovative companies grow their go-to-market strategies and expand into new markets. Before joining Nasuni, Grant helped Veeam Software accelerate growth in cloud data management as Senior Vice President of Global Marketing. Prior to Veeam he was VP of Marketing at VMware.
“The enterprise file storage market is ripe for disruption. Most infrastructure has benefited from the simplicity and economics of the cloud, but the file server and Network Attached Storage (NAS) markets have lagged behind. Traditional storage vendors have tried to cloud-wash their technology, but they cannot deliver on the promise of the cloud with their dated technology,” said Grant. “Nasuni is the only file storage built cloud-first, using object storage to enable the largest organizations in the world to revolutionize how they store, protect, analyze and access their unstructured data.”
By selecting Nasuni’s file storage built for the cloud, organizations of all sizes are pursuing digital transformation with cloud-first strategies, and realizing significant cost savings as compared to just extending traditional on-premises file storage. Nasuni’s partnerships with Google, AWS and Azure allow enterprises to empower users with local, NAS-like performance, no matter their location, coupled with the cloud object storage platform that best suits the business’ needs, resulting in as much as 70% cost savings over traditional legacy approaches.
Nasuni provides modern, cloud file storage, powered by the leading cloud-first global file system. Nasuni is a cloud replacement for traditional network attached storage (NAS) and file server silos. Nasuni consolidates file data, with instantly expandable cloud storage at half the cost. Eliminating the need and complexity for legacy backup and disaster recovery infrastructure, Nasuni dramatically simplifies IT administration.
