Nasuni and Microsoft partner to help businesses benefit from digital transformation

Microsoft named Nasuni its 2017 Azure Global ISV of the Year for being one of the top drivers of Azure object storage consumption worldwide.

Microsoft partner

Our strong partnership offers enterprises:

  • Best-in-class storage, protection, and access for fast-growing unstructured file data.
  • Compliance with strategic cloud-first initiatives.
  • Deep integration with Azure, Active Directory, and Microsoft operating systems.
  • A shared vision for enabling business agility, global growth, distributed workforce efficiency and massive cost savings.

Nasuni unlocks the potential of Azure Hot and Cool storage.

Nasuni on Azure brings multi-site file sharing, data protection, and global file access to the next level. Enterprises looking to refresh Network Attached Storage (NAS), enhance file collaboration, and extract more value from their file data with analytics are turning to our joint solution. By replacing costly on-premises NAS, backup, replication, and disaster recovery (DR) silos with a simple, affordable, and flexible cloud-native solution, we also radically reduce costs. Backed by Azure, Nasuni is “NAS Unified.”

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

Azure+Nasuni Partners

We built the world’s first global file system that “lives” in – and scales with – the cloud. By storing all metadata and files in Azure 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

We complete the Azure storage portfolio.

For Azure-based enterprise file services, scalable NAS, and limitless archives, Nasuni has you covered.
