Multi-Site File Collaboration for NAS and File Server Workloads | Nasuni

Multi-Site File Collaboration

Enabling a distributed workforce to collaborate on files across many locations can be fraught with latency and version conflict issues. Unless you have a global file system with intelligent, high-speed change propagation and global file locking.

More Collaboration. Less Waiting.

The UniFS® global file system stores all files and metadata in private or public cloud object storage. High-speed internet bandwidth is used to securely propagate just the changes to active files across Nasuni Edge Appliances. With every appliance kept constantly in sync, users globally will think they’re working on one big, fast local file server.

Share Everywhere

Deploy edge appliances anywhere file collaboration is needed.

Faster File Access

Accelerate file opens, saves, and change propagation.

Lower TCO

Consolidate multi-site file sharing tools and processes to save on costs.

Easier On IT.

No more duplicating full-sized NAS devices in multiple sites. Or trying to provide remote file access with WAN acceleration and extra MPLS bandwidth. Nasuni automates and orchestrates every element of cross-office file storage and synchronization, so you can focus on strategic things.

Central Orchestration and Management

Let the Nasuni Operations Console (NOC) automatically align and synchronize file changes across all edge appliances.

Application Support

Accelerate file open, save, and transfer operations across sites for large file-generating apps such as Revit, Teamcenter, SOLIDWORKS, and more.

Reporting and Alerting

Get notified via SNMP on key events. Tag volume and share utilization for planning and chargeback.

All Versions Neatly Aligned.

Nasuni continuously sends the fragments of files that change on each edge appliance to cloud object storage. Nasuni Global Volume Manager™ technology aligns and stores each change as its own unique, immutable version based on date and time stamps.

Changes are propagated at high speed to every edge appliance to ensure users in all locations are accessing the latest files. But previous versions can be recalled quickly with the click of a mouse.

Version Conflicts Avoided.

Nasuni’s patented Global File Lock™ technology ensures only one user anywhere in the world can make file changes at a time. Architected as a scalable cloud service with redundant lock servers and lock server failover built-in, Global File Lock minimizes the data loss – and productivity loss – caused by version conflict.

Trusted by Leading Enterprises

A corporate initiative to embrace the cloud and reduce IT infrastructure expenditures spurred IT to look for alternative storage and data protection solutions.

File data at IDL Worldwide is growing faster than ever. An initiative to enhance cross-office collaboration and boost design team productivity led the branding agency for Coca-Cola, Nike, and Chick-fil-A to Nasuni.

Walsh

With close to twenty offices worldwide, The Walsh Group needed a global file share that could deliver the same information to all their offices without sacrificing performance or data security.
