Nasuni PartnerNAS Program Open to Consultants, VARs and System Integrators Looking to Enhance their Storage, Disaster Recovery and Data Protection Services Portfolio

Natick, MA. – April 11, 2011 – Nasuni®, creator of the storage industry’s leading cloud gateway, today introduced the Nasuni PartnerNAS program, designed to expand access to simple and secure cloud storage services across industries. Building on an already robust network of global partners, the PartnerNAS program is open to consultants, MSPs and system integrators (SIs) looking to enhance their storage, disaster recovery and data protection services portfolio. With the Nasuni Filer, a software appliance, Nasuni partners can help organizations quickly and easily leverage the vast capacity of the cloud to store and protect files offsite, while retaining the functionality and local-like performance of on-premise NAS.

The Nasuni Filer radically simplifies storage and protection of business files, providing small- and medium-sized enterprises with unlimited file server capacity, built-in disaster recovery and backup, while at the same time eliminating the expense of hardware infrastructure expansion. All data is encrypted prior to being moved to the cloud, keeping it completely secure. In the event of accidental file deletion, automatic snapshots of the entire file system ensure that lost files can quickly and easily be restored. If an IT administrator wants to delete snapshots for compliance, legal or security purposes, they can set up time- or volume-based policies that will permanently purge them, ensuring that deleted files remain irrevocably deleted.

“As the volume of data proliferates and companies need to utilize their capital to grow revenues, we’re seeing increased demand for simplified storage options that take advantage of storage-as-a-service architectures,” said Paul Dougherty, CTO for Lellyett & Rogers Services, an IT Services firm supporting the architectural, engineering and construction market. “Nasuni has established itself as an innovator in delivering all of the benefits of locally-managed NAS storage from the cloud in a secure and cost-effective package, and we look forward to bringing this compelling solution to our customers.”

The Nasuni PartnerNAS program offers a global, vertically focused opportunity for partners that want to grow their data services business, or are looking for a leg-up in the hotly contested cloud storage market. The program offers extensive support for qualified partners, including guaranteed price protection, online lead and opportunity management, dedicated account management and joint sales and marketing opportunities. Partners can also access training, support, and sales and technical certification options on demand via an easy-to-use self-service portal.

“The Nasuni PartnerNAS program is a key component of our long-term growth strategy to bring the benefits of cloud-based storage to new customers in technology, law, education, healthcare and other data-intensive industries,” said Jim D’Espinosa, channel manager for Nasuni. “With our PartnerNAS program, we are also empowering our partners to grow by offering a unique solution that complements their businesses, and meets customer demand for simple and secure cloud storage worldwide.”
