Orchestration Center Virtual Edge Appliances UniFS Analytics Connector Management Console

The Heart of the Nasuni platform

UniFS® is the world’s only global file system designed to scale without limits inside AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud object storage. By storing all files, metadata, and nodes as objects and leveraging the scalability of the cloud, UniFS is free of the capacity, volume, and file size constraints of device-based file systems.

High-Performance File Access at the Edge

Nasuni Edge Appliances are lightweight virtual machines that cache copies of frequently accessed files wherever high-speed access is needed. Install the VMs on your own virtual or hyperconverged infrastructure or in the cloud to replace legacy file servers and NAS devices. Or choose from a lineup of pre-configured hardware models. In addition to providing SMB and NFS-based file access, each Edge Appliance de-duplicates and encrypts your file data, then transmits just the changes to object storage at regular snapshot intervals set by your IT team. With every file change protected as its own immutable version in the cloud, you no longer need separate backup or DR systems.

Single Pane of Glass Management

The Nasuni Management Console provides a complete, centralized view and management of edge appliances, volumes, snapshots, recoveries, protocols, and shares. Use the web-based interface for point-and-click configuration, or the REST API for automated monitoring, provisioning, and reporting. Managing a global file infrastructure across any number of sites is now as simple as managing one file server in a single office.

“Traffic Cop” for File Synchronization and Locking

The Nasuni Orchestration Center is a zero-maintenance cloud service that coordinates multi-site file synchronization and Nasuni Global File Lock®. Unlike competitive solutions that use a Windows Server as their control path, the NOC is built on elastic, multi-region cloud services that enable files to be shared across locations at any scale, without version conflict.

Access to Powerful Analytics

The Nasuni Analytics Connector creates a temporary copy of your file data in native object storage format in the cloud of your choice. You’ll be able to run your favorite BI, ML, AI, and other analytics tools from any cloud to extract the full value from your unstructured data with ease.
