What is Nasuni?
Nasuni is a hybrid cloud storage provider that offers its clients top-ranking cloud gateway services. In order to replace the traditional file servers and Network Attached Storage (NAS), Nasuni offers a cloud solution through object storage, UniFS global file system, and file catching applications. It can integrate with public platforms for cloud storage, such as Google Cloud Storage, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services. Additionally, it also works with private platforms for cloud storage, such as EMC ECS and IBM Cloud Object Storage. Nasuni UniFS creates a versioned file system on top of the object-based storage infrastructure that the listed platforms provide.
As a part of its extensive cloud storage services, Nasuni offers a cloud storage gateway called Filer, which was created to simplify cloud storage and protection. It is a virtual NAS file server that runs on VMware and that leverages the resources of the cloud, thereby making both file storage and its protection simpler. Nasuni’s cloud storage gateway makes incremental storage hardware redundant and, as a result, minimizes costs.
Nasuni’s cloud storage gateway includes snapshot and data deduplication features, caching, and management of file access, storage, and protection. The solution offers users the ability to keep a second copy of their data offsite in cases of emergency.
The Nasuni cloud storage solution allows unstructured data management to run smoothly. Its features include:
Automatic provisioning: Unlimited capacity expansion and automatic adjustment whenever there is a need to increase or decrease storage.
High-performance caching: Copies of working files are kept in users’ local storage to allow for fast access. File changes are sent to the cloud, allowing for the cloud storage files to be updated and also to take up minimal space in storage.
Synchronized snapshots with an option for fast restoring: Through snapshots, Nasuni maintains frequent replication of the system, which is sent to the cloud. There, the information is accessible but offsite, meaning a user can see it anytime but it doesn't take up any space on their computer. The snapshot feature also allows for reliable backup of the data that is stored in the cloud.
End-to-end encryption: Nasuni cloud storage gateway relies on OpenPGP with AES-256 to ensure the security of users' information in the cloud. The files aren't visible to the company or to any associates, which allows customers to control them fully, using their decryption keys.
Choice of cloud vendors: Users canNasuni has a feature that allows its users to choose between different cloud providers.
The services Nasuni provides regarding data cloud storage and cloud storage gateways make file storage easier for users. The benefits of using Nasuni include:
- Opportunity for simple platform operation
- Recovery and protection features
- Easy consolidation, allowing customers and their large volume of data to migrate to Nasuni in less than two months
Reviews from Real Users
James J., IT Manager at a marketing services firm, says Nasuni’s management dashboard is helpful because he's able to view all of the different filers at once rather than check each one of them individually. He values the software’s security, reliability, good performance, helpful alerting, and responsive support.
According to a Server Engineering Services Lead at a mining and metals company, Nasuni offers good OR and DR capabilities, performs well, offers data security, and continuous file versioning helps recover from hardware failures.
The Managing Director of IT at a construction company appreciates Nasuni because it eliminates a lot of work that was previously done when managing backing up and restoring data files.
