Nasuni Enables Enterprises to Centrally Manage and Securely Share the Storage of Recently Acquired Companies in Days, Not Months

NATICK, Mass. – May 29, 2012 – Nasuni®, a provider of enterprise storage to large, distributed organizations, now offers a storage solution for organizations that are rapidly growing through mergers and acquisitions (M&A). With Nasuni, it takes days, not months, to bring the data of acquired companies and new offices under secure management while at the same time providing full read-write access to those files throughout entire global organizations. Nasuni is the only storage solution that effortlessly integrates with multiple Active Directories to enable secure, simple sharing of files across remote and branch offices.

When one organization acquires another, integrating the file storage systems has traditionally required an enormous amount of time consuming, expensive work.  Each organization has its own unique Active Directory setup and, depending upon the number of locations, may also have an extensive WAN optimization or replication scheme to give users shared access to files. Integrating different file storage and file sharing systems has typically required IT teams to transfer massive amounts of data, tediously and slowly reconfigure the Active Directory settings and re-architect the file system. The process can take weeks, even months to complete, and, until it is finished, the two businesses do not have common access to critical files.

With Nasuni, organizations need only install an instance of Nasuni’s on-site appliance at each location. Within hours, every location with a Nasuni appliance will have complete read-write access to all files, and all files will be under secure, central management.

“We are a global business with several companies located throughout the world, and we need to share files quickly between our businesses,” said Jason Benway, Data Center Architect at JSJ Corporation. “This has been complicated by our complex Active Directory Forest, but with Nasuni’s multiple domain support, we can easily share files across globe. So when we open a new office, I can easily give them local speeds to the global file system. Nasuni saves my team an astonishing amount of time and headaches.”

“Rapidly growing organizations should not have to put their business on pause because their storage systems can’t work at the same speed,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “With Nasuni, the day after the acquisition closes, IT can bring the acquisition’s files into the fold and give all employees full read-write access to the combined organization’s files.”
