Nasuni Corporation Key Developments

Saint Michael's College Selects and Deploys Nasuni Service for Infinitely Scalable and Secure Primary Storage

Nasuni announced that Saint Michael's College is using the Nasuni Service to provide more than 3,000 users with fast and secure access to more than 12 TB of operational and academic data. The college's IT organization replaced its existing storage infrastructure with the Nasuni Service in an effort to provide an even higher level of support to students, faculty and staff even as the amount of data on its network continues to grow exponentially. Prior to deploying the Nasuni Service, the IT team at St. Michael's faced two big challenges. The amount of data it had to manage was growing rapidly, putting an increasing strain on the college's network resources. In addition, while a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Project completed several years ago had ensured the redundancy of all critical systems, the cost of scaling the college's storage infrastructure at the production data center and the failover was exorbitant. The IT team at St. Michael's looked to the cloud for a solution, with several caveats. High performance for end-users was crucial. The solution also needed to be easy to manage, intuitive, cost effective and secure, with the college maintaining complete control over all of its data. Finally, the team at St. Michael's wanted a partner with a proven track record for fast and thorough support. In light of these criteria, St. Michael's chose and deployed the Nasuni Service. Because Nasuni caches the most frequently used data inside the Nasuni Filer appliances on-site, users noticed no difference in performance. In addition, the Nasuni Service backs up the environment automatically, as often as every 60-seconds, and recovery of any data, from word processing documents to multi-terabyte data volumes, requires just a few mouse clicks enabling St. Michael's IT department to do in minutes what used to take hours or days. Scalability also ceased to be an issue. When the need for more storage capacity arises, IT simply contacts Nasuni to request more capacity, which can be available in minutes. And with built-in anti-virus support and all encryption keys held only by St. Michael's, the security of the college's data is never in question.

From 2007 through 2013, Mr. Dussault served as CFO for Demandware Inc.

TBG Partners Uses Nasuni Service

Nasuni(R) announced that TBG Partners is using the Nasuni Service to give all of its office locations fast access to a 20 TB storage volume, much of which consists of AutoCAD, SketchUp and 3D Studio Max files that are several gigabytes in size. Nasuni also automatically protects the entire storage infrastructure with instant recovery of files no matter how large. Prior to deploying the Nasuni Service, each TBG Partners office had its own unique storage infrastructure, with an Internet-based VPN connecting one branch to the next. The traffic between offices was slow, and collaboration was excruciatingly inefficient, especially when design team members were working with large, multi-megabyte files. Backup and recovery was another serious pain point. Whenever files were mistakenly deleted or overwritten, IT typically had to go to tapes to recover this lost data, and the tapes were often stored off-site. As a result, the restoration process could take days. TBG Partners turned to the Nasuni Service to solve its storage and data access challenges, but also to fully automate backup and provide instant recovery. After consulting with Nasuni's engineers, TBG Partners designated five of its offices for Nasuni's high-performance SSD Filers, which are designed specifically for the heavy workloads common to design-intensive firms. Smaller offices with less intense performance demands received virtual servers installed on local hardware. With the Nasuni Service, TBG Partners has benefited from: Automatic Data Protection Without Separate Backup: Encrypted snapshots every few minutes to the cloud deliver enterprise-grade protection; Fast Recovery: Nasuni's Filer offers fast file restore and an unmatched RPO; Unlimited Scalability: TBG Partners can affordably expand its cloud-backed storage volume indefinitely, eliminating the traditional three-year storage buying cycle; No Capital Investment: all hardware is leased, with a refresh every three years or earlier, as needed. Capacity is charged on a TB/year basis for usable storage only. An unlimited number of snapshots may be stored at no additional charge; True Global File Lock: Nasuni ensures that files are not simultaneously edited with the industry's only true global file lock. Its intelligence is in the cloud, not in a specific device, avoiding bottlenecks and eliminating a single point of failure; Enterprise-grade Performance: the Nasuni Filer maintains fast file access speeds by keeping frequently used data cached on local appliances; Improved Collaboration: Nasuni's cloud-integrated storage service means that TBG Partners' files exist as one data set, accessible from anywhere, including mobile devices; Proactive Support: on the rare occasions when an issue comes up, Nasuni has alerted Nichols to the item and suggested a fix, before it caused any problems.
