NATICK, Mass., May 3, 2010 – Nasuni™, creator of the industry’s first gateway to the cloud for primary storage, was named a finalist in the Cloud Computing 2010 category of the 7th Annual MITX Technology Awards, which recognizes and celebrates innovative technologies developed in New England.  Winners will be announced at an awards program attended by the region’s top technology and business professionals at the Boston Marriott Copley Place June 2.

Finalists competed in two rounds of judging and were assessed on their product’s business solution, technical merit, future development and innovation. In addition to being selected as a finalist in the Cloud Computing category, Nasuni is eligible for the organization’s “Best of” award and for a “Promise” award, which recognizes start-up companies whose emerging technology solutions show promise to make a significant business impact.

“Being named a finalist in the MITX Technology Awards is an important achievement,” said Kiki Mills, president of MITX.  “This recognition translates into increased exposure with media, industry analysts and investors, and provides them a higher profile in their industry. We congratulate all of the finalists on their achievement and wish them luck in the competition.”

Finalists represent the spectrum of innovation in New England’s technology sector, demonstrated by eleven categories at this year’s awards, which include: Analytics and Business Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Devices, E-Commerce/Alternative Retail, Marketing/Customer Relationship Technologies, Mobile Application, Mobile Infrastructure, Online Advertising, Rich Media, Social Media and Technology Enablers.

“We are pleased to be included among the Cloud Computing finalists of the MITX Tech Awards and consider it an honor to be thought of as among the most innovative companies of New England,” said Nasuni CEO and co-founder Andres Rodriguez. “By developing a simple and secure gateway to the cloud, we are enabling businesses of all sizes to take advantage of the benefits of unlimited file storage with built-in file protection without the need to buy or maintain additional storage hardware.  The cloud is the future of storage and the Nasuni Filer is the most complete solution for businesses to capitalize on the strengths of the cloud.”

The Nasuni Filer leverages the resources of the cloud to simplify file access, storage and protection, while eliminating the expense of storage hardware and infrastructure expansion. Because it provisions storage capacity automatically and includes high-performance caching for quick retrieval, it can be used as primary storage instead of or in combination with traditional file servers. It features synchronous snapshots, deduplication, and encryption plus key management for security. Those not ready for a complete transition to all-in-one cloud storage can use the Nasuni Filer for storing second copies offsite for disaster protection. Nasuni’s cloud storage partners include Amazon Web Services, Iron Mountain, Nirvanix and Rackspace.
