January 10, 2011

NATICK, Mass., January 10, 2011 – Nasuni®, creator of the storage industry’s leading cloud storage gateway, today announced an expansion of its cloud storage provider network with the addition of Vancouver, BC based PEER 1 Hosting, one of the world’s leading IT hosting providers.

PEER 1 Hosting’s CloudOne Storage, offers unlimited capacity and scalability through 17 data centers across North America and Europe.  Built on the EMC Atmos platform, CloudOne provides Nasuni users the capacity, reliability, and stability of the cloud with a proven storage platform. The combination of CloudOne and the Nasuni Filer provides seamless, secure, access to cloud storage with the simplicity of a NAS file server.

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 from leading cloud vendors, while delivering the performance expected of a traditional file server.

“CloudOne Storage is the latest example of our commitment to delivering best-of-breed technology at the best price.” said Adam Weissmuller, Sr. Product Manager for PEER 1 Hosting. “The innovations in the Nasuni Filer take full advantage of our 10 GB backbone, globally load balanced, and highly redundant SuperNetwork. The Nasuni-PEER 1 Hosting partnership painlessly and efficiently transforms CloudOne Storage into primary NAS storage for our customers.”

“PEER 1 Hosting provides a world-class cloud storage environment that, combined with the Nasuni Filer, delivers to our customers’ secure, scalable and highly-available storage with the zero-latency performance of primary storage,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “As we continue to work with the leading cloud providers like PEER 1 Hosting, we are able to ensure that files are stored safely and automatically, allowing companies to expand their existing storage capacity without purchasing additional hardware resulting in considerable savings and increased IT productivity.  Partnering with PEER 1 Hosting allows us to solve file provisioning and protection problems in a single seamless solution.”
