The Nasuni Cloud File Services platform is now offered by IBM. Together, IBM Cloud Object Storage and Nasuni provide the modern, cloud-based solution for enterprises 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 IBM COS to be used for all NAS, file server, and archiving workloads.
“Given AECOM’s size, there have been a wide range of file storage challenges, from struggles to collaborate on key apps, to the inability to effectively scale storage to meet business needs, to inconsistent and unreliable backups at the edge. IBM Cloud Object Storage and Nasuni have helped overcome these challenges.”

Nasuni and IBM COS 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 IBM COS 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.
“One of the strengths of our business is the number of engineering specialists we can call upon to support our clients. We need to be able to form dynamic, cross-functional teams made up of these specialists no matter where they are located. This cannot be accomplished without a fast, efficient way to store and share files. We’re now a year into our deployment, and we’re pleased with how much easier IBM Cloud Object Storage and Nasuni is for our IT team to manage.”

Nasuni with IBM COS 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.
