Manufacturing Organizations Are Increasingly Trusting Their File Data and Its Protection to the Nasuni File Data Platform with Data under Management Growing by 243%

BOSTON, March 28, 2023Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services, today announced strong momentum within the manufacturing industry, with data under management growing by 243% since Q1 2021. In order to modernize operations and remain competitive, the manufacturing industry is accelerating its pace of digital transformation and its move to the cloud. This has resulted in increased demand for the Nasuni File Data Platform.

The manufacturing industry is immersing itself in the revolution to modernize its operations by embracing emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, digital twins, and the Internet of Things. The digitalization of production, assets, and data have emerged as critical necessities, and Gartner reports that 36% of manufacturers experience “above-average business value” from investments made toward this effort. As more information and data become digitalized, organizations are realizing they must seek solutions that enable them to break down silos and collaborate around data.

In addition, the Industry 4.0 revolution is creating an exponential data growth. This is causing manufacturers to become more heavily targeted by cyberattacks, like ransomware, with The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) reporting that in 2021 manufacturing represented 65% of industrial ransomware attacks. Furthermore, the industry as a whole was targeted six times more often than the second leading group (food and beverage), making the protection of data from advanced and persistent threats (APT) like ransomware, business-critical.

To solve these challenges, leading organizations including Alcoa, Hybrid Apparel, JSJ, Morton Salt, SAS International, Western Digital, and Yazaki are modernizing their storage infrastructure into a data services model with the Nasuni File Data Platform. Nasuni enables them to gain more business value from their IT investments, reduce storage costs by 60% over legacy storage, and recover from ransomware attacks in minutes. The platform works seamlessly with massive Dassault CATIA CAD (computer-aided design) files, Adobe InDesign, Siemens Teamcenter, Windows® File Copy, Linux® File Copy, and Robocopy®. Since the start of 2021, Nasuni has experienced a 66% growth in manufacturing customers. Today, Nasuni manufacturing customers are able to efficiently collaborate on, manage, and protect their critical data at more than 1,800 locations in 55 countries worldwide.

“Nasuni covered cloud storage, backup, ransomware, and more,” said Mark Valpreda, IT infrastructure consultant, Hybrid Apparel. “The whole solution of Nasuni on top of Google Cloud object storage saves us money, but what these savings don’t account for is that the solution gives me back the ability to sleep at night.”

Headquartered in California with offices in three main regions globally, Hybrid Apparel is a creative design and manufacturing firm that specializes in making licensed t-shirts for some of the world’s most recognizable brands. Their previous file storage system was a persistent headache with users needing to manually move files and folders when they ran out of capacity. Replication and recovery were also complex and unreliable. With the Nasuni File Data Platform deployed, Hybrid Apparel’s Adobe Creative files and other unstructured data, scale in Google Cloud object storage, while Nasuni Edge Appliances cache files locally for fast access. Backup, replication, and other technologies have been eliminated, as Nasuni delivers all of these capabilities and more in one cloud-native platform – all with significant cost savings.

Nasuni transforms legacy file infrastructure with a set of file data services that consolidates siloed information, provides 24/7 business continuity, optimizes user productivity, delivers game-changing business insights, and offers the ability to choose any or multiple cloud providers. Hybrid cloud technology is especially important in manufacturing as performance at the edge for collaborating on data around the globe is critical. Nasuni’s intelligent edge caching enables manufacturers to leverage the power of cloud object storage while maintaining local high performance.
