Nasuni is the modern, cloud-native solution for primary NAS consolidation and refresh initiatives
On-premises Network Attached Storage (NAS) arrays have long been the solution for enterprise file sharing. Project directories, group shares, and user home drives with NAS for primary storage, backup infrastructure for data protection, and replication or remote access for cross-site sharing have been the standard formula. However, continuing the cycle of NAS refresh, forklift upgrades, backup, replication, and dedicated DR sites can no longer keep pace with the growth rate of unstructured data. Cost and complexity are too great, and digital transformation objectives are not being met.
Nasuni, in combination with a hot tier of cloud object storage (e.g. Amazon S3 Standard, Azure Hot GRS/LRS, IBM Cloud Object Storage), is the modern solution to your NAS refresh and consolidation challenges.
Nasuni breaks the expensive NAS refresh cycle, saving IT budget and staff time. By using durable, scalable cloud object storage in place of disk; on-premises edge appliances for fast access to active files; and the world’s first global file system that scales beyond the bounds of any individual storage array, Nasuni is quickly becoming the new scalable NAS standard.
High performance file access, built-in data protection, unlimited scalability, comprehensive security, and support for any public or private cloud object store are all included at significantly lower cost than legacy NAS infrastructure.
Nasuni addresses the need for scalable file storage with world-class features:
Traditional NAS infrastructure has many drawbacks:
Nasuni overcomes these drawbacks:
Nasuni and cloud storage shift heavy, up-front NAS CapEx to predictable, pay-as-you-grow OpEx. Cloud storage scales in place without limits, eliminating costs related to storage refreshes, forklift upgrades, and data migrations. Nasuni eliminates the costs of backup, DR, and replication.
There is no more guessing about how much primary file storage will be needed for the future. Adding more capacity can be performed on demand with a simple license update.
Backup is built-in. Recovery points can be tight enough to mitigate everything from Ransomware to accidental deletions. Recovery times can be as fast as your business needs mandate.
Provide access to files no matter how many locations are impacted by a disaster or IT outage. Any office with power and cloud connectivity can become a DR site in minutes.
