Can a global file system live in IBM Cloud?
Yes, if it’s Nasuni UniFS®.

We built the world’s first global file system that “lives” in – and scales with – the cloud. By storing all metadata and files in IBM Cloud Object Storage first, and using on-premises caching appliances to provide fast, secure access only to the active data, our hybrid cloud solution offers many unique advantages:

  • Unlimited capacity on demand
  • Pay-as-you-grow flexibility
  • Industry-leading recovery points & times
  • DR anywhere you have power and bandwidth
  • File access anytime, through any device
  • File collaboration without version conflict
  • Simple, centralized management
