Nasuni Announces File Storage Partnership with Google Cloud
Thursday, February 25, 2021

Collaboration provides fast, flexible cloud file storage for customers

BOSTON, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, announced it has formed a strategic collaboration with Google Cloud to address the growing need for enterprise file storage that is simple, reliable, and low cost. Nasuni is bringing to market a modern enterprise cloud file storage offering that pairs Google Cloud's object storage economics with Nasuni's cloud-native global file system.

The new solution from Nasuni delivers low-cost primary file storage for enterprise customers seeking to modernize their on-premises file servers and network attached storage (NAS) infrastructures. The integration between Nasuni's cloud-native file storage platform and Google Cloud's object storage provides high-performance primary file storage, backup, disaster recovery (DR), multi-site file synchronization and edge caching -- all for up to 70% less than traditional file infrastructures.

"We're delighted that Nasuni will deploy its solutions for cost-effective and agile file storage on Google Cloud," said Manvinder Singh, Director, Partnerships at Google Cloud. "Bringing their cloud-native solution to Google Cloud enables customers to deploy file storage as-a-service on our scalable, global, and secure infrastructure, with simplified procurement and billing via the Google Cloud Marketplace."

As organizations of all sizes continue to pursue digital transformation with cloud-first strategies, they are turning to Nasuni for its primary file storage and backup SaaS solution built on cost-effective cloud object storage, to realize significant cost savings compared to refreshing traditional on-premises file storage. With Nasuni's partnership with Google Cloud, customers can now take advantage of an innovative cloud file storage solution that offers more dramatic savings using always-available, Google Cloud Storage archive class object storage, without sacrificing end-user performance. Google Cloud's cost-optimized object storage is achieved through economies of scale across its global internet infrastructure and network.

"We've seen IT continue to evolve with the cloud, with files storage traditionally trailing behind due to complexity and cost," said Andrew Smith, research manager at IDC. "The dynamics in the marketplace are now shifting, putting file storage in a pole position for disruption around simplicity and cost savings. The new partnership between Nasuni and Google Cloud is significant, as it is designed to address evolving customer expectations for cloud storage."

Nasuni's offering, available on Google Cloud enables customers to consolidate departmental and organizational file shares, traditionally stored in on-premises file servers and NAS, in a single global file system in Google Cloud. Benefits include:

    --  File storage silo consolidation: Nasuni eliminates primary and backup
        storage silos by consolidating all files in the cloud under one global
        file system that is accessible from anywhere.
    --  Built-in backup and disaster recovery: Nasuni Continuous File
        Versioning(®) technology stores all file changes as they happen in
        Google Cloud Storage for fast recoveries to all locations, eliminating
        the need for traditional file backup.
    --  No file storage limitations: Nasuni's UniFS® global file system resides
        in and scales with Google Cloud Storage to offer a single, global
        namespace that can be accessed from anywhere, without traditional limits
        on the size or number of files, directories or snapshots.
    --  Fast end-user file access and sharing: Nasuni's unique caching
        architecture, which can be deployed in cloud-only or hybrid cloud
        configurations, gives customers the flexibility to access files in local
        Google Cloud regions or in multiple on-premises locations. End-users and
        applications enjoy extremely fast file access, even for demanding
        workloads and large files, while cloud data egress costs are minimized.
    --  Better access to Google Analytics: Once organizations consolidate their
        files from all locations into one global file system in Google Cloud
        Storage they can begin to take advantage of services like Document AI,
        Vision AI, Video AI and Natural Language.
    --  The right object storage class: Customers can build their primary file
        storage around the Google Cloud Storage class appropriate for their
        business model.
    --  Simple migrations: Organizations can easily and rapidly migrate Windows
        file servers and NAS file shares to Google Cloud, reducing the cost and
        complexity of managing these environments.

"As part of our infrastructure modernization efforts, we wanted to move to an enterprise-class file storage solution that would better meet the needs of our global business," said Aaron Tiner, Director, Information Technology at Morrow-Meadows Corporation. "Knowing that Nasuni would work with any object storage, we selected Google Cloud as its back-end. Google Cloud's Object Storage provides immediate, and long-term cost savings, and Nasuni enables local, tier-one performance with built-in backup. This combined offering was the obvious choice."

Paul Flanagan, CEO of Nasuni said, "As companies move data to the cloud for simpler management, better resiliency and cost savings, they will be able to retire overhead technologies previously needed to protect their file investments, such as NAS, file servers, backup hardware and software, and redundant storage infrastructure replicated at remote sites for disaster planning. Nasuni's simpler, cost-effective solution on top of Google Cloud delivers the on-demand file access, flexibility, built-in backup and file sharing that today's distributed workforce needs."

As part of this partnership, Nasuni has joined the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program as a Google Cloud Build Partner. The combined Nasuni and Google Cloud Storage offering is available today in the Google Cloud Marketplace, offering a greatly simplified procurement process as well as consolidation of invoices from a single vendor. Current Google Cloud customers may work with their Google representative to apply their usage commits to Nasuni cloud file storage.
