Nasuni Cloud File Services with the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is the modern, cloud-based solution for organizations needing to store, protect, archive, share, and collaborate on rapidly growing file data.
Object storage can be the more scalable, cost-effective alternative to legacy file storage. But it needs a file system to exploit these advantages. The Nasuni patented UniFS global file system bridges file storage and object storage, with capabilities that enable HCP to be used for all NAS, file server, and archiving workloads.
“Increasingly, we’re seeing customers want to incorporate object storage into their architectures to react faster to change and to optimize costs. Our partnership with Nasuni and integration of the Hitachi Content Platform with Nasuni’s global file system provides the ideal ecosystem to support customers’ expanding cloud use cases and workloads. Customers looking to modernize NAS, remote office file servers, and legacy archives and gain new global file sharing capabilities need look no farther than Hitachi Vantara and Nasuni.”
Peter Sjoberg, VP Global Content and Data Intelligence Business, Hitachi Vantara
Nasuni and HCP deliver a key digital transformation capability not available with traditional NAS and file servers – the ability to share files across any number of locations. The Nasuni platform uses Hitachi Object Storage as the one true source of all files, then keeps active files synchronized on edge appliances so everyone in every office is always working on the latest version. It’s like having one massive global file server.
“We have a strong relationship with Hitachi, given Nasuni’s founder previously founded Archivas, which is now the basis for the Hitachi Content Platform. With many enterprises wanting to move to object storage but also wanting to leverage their existing data center space, the combination of HCP and Nasuni for meeting unstructured data growth challenges is exactly what’s needed.”
Warren Mead, Vice President, Channel Sales & Business Development, Nasuni
Nasuni with Hitachi Object Storage offers another digital transformation capability not found anywhere else – global file lock.
Implemented as a scalable cloud service instead of tied to a single NAS controller or cluster, Nasuni’s patented global file lock ensures only one person in the world can edit a file at a time, helping minimize version conflict and productivity loss.
