Nasuni is a winner of Microsoft’s Global Azure ISV Partner of the Year award for helping enterprises store, protect, archive, share, and collaborate on rapidly growing file data using Azure object storage.
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 first global file system designed to scale inside object storage, Nasuni patented UniFS brings all the capabilities of traditional NAS, file server, and archiving technologies to Azure.
“Moving our 3D tomography images to the Nasuni/Azure platform has protected our capital budget from large and lengthy storage procurement requests every two to three years. We estimate we saved about $1.3 million in storage costs in the first year alone.”

Nasuni and Azure 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 Azure 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.
Nasuni with Azure offers another digital transformation capability not found anywhere else – Nasuni Global File Lock®.
Implemented as a scalable cloud service instead of tied to a single NAS controller or cluster, Nasuni Global File Lock ensures only one person in the world can edit a file at a time, helping minimize version conflict and productivity loss.
Nasuni consolidates all file data in scalable, secure Azure Blob Storage. In each Azure region that is hosting Windows Virtual Desktop, small footprint virtual machines — Nasuni Edge Appliances — cache just the frequently used files. Since the Windows Virtual Desktop instances are close to the files, end-users enjoy high-performance, LAN-speed file access.
