Nasuni Filer Wins Top Prize in Storage Management Tools Category

NATICK, Mass., February 16, 2011 – Nasuni®, creator of the storage industry’s leading cloud storage gateway, announced today it was named the Storage Management Tool Product of the Year in Storage magazine and’s annual awards feature.

Editors of TechTarget’s Storage Media Group and other judges named the Nasuni Filer the gold-medal winner in the Storage Management Tools category, giving Nasuni the highest average scores in innovation, ease of use, integration and manageability among eight finalists. Judges include the Storage editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts, and consultants.

“This is a market-disruptive technology,” one judge said. “Unlike the other cloud storage gateways, it’s NAS and a pure subscription play with no dedicated hardware. Pricing and model make this a very high value.” Another judge called the Filer an “elegant way to bridge on- and off-premise storage.”

“What a huge achievement this is, not only for Nasuni, but for the category of cloud storage gateways as a whole,” said Andres Rodriguez, Nasuni’s CEO. “We are proud that the Nasuni Filer has been recognized as a product that makes cloud storage a reality. We give our customers the ability to quickly deploy a file server that needs no backup and never runs out of space. We make it easier than ever before to manage data growth.”

Complete coverage appears in the February issue of Storage magazine and online at 2010 Products of the Year.

The Nasuni Filer, a virtual appliance, delivers primary storage from the cloud that is indistinguishable from local storage. Nasuni offers the benefits of cloud storage to businesses by simplifying file access, security, back-up, and disaster recovery while eliminating the expense of hardware infrastructure expansion. The Filer leverages unlimited storage, while delivering the performance expected of a traditional file server.
