Nasuni has had a 74% CAGR over the last three years, driven by businesses looking for global file data services.
With more than 500 clients utilizing Nasuni to access and safeguard about 100 petabytes (PB) of core customer file data workloads housed on Microsoft Azure, Nasuni Corporation, a leading supplier of file data services, today announced that it has accomplished a significant milestone.
Since 2019, there has been significant growth in the number of Nasuni users utilizing Azure, with a 74% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and a 66% increase in the total number of clients. In fact, compared to previous years, the quantity of data that Nasuni users are adding to Azure is increasing; during 2022, the company’s clients contributed an average of 3 PB each month to Azure.
The major danger of ransomware, the necessity to enable hybrid and remote work, and the continued fast migration of file data infrastructure to the cloud by enterprise IT have all contributed to the high demand for the Nasuni File Data Platform with Azure Blob Storage.
Moreover, Nasuni unveiled an interaction with Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, allowing users to save, search for, browse, and modify files in Nasuni from within these programmes. With the elevation of Sean Cross to Global Microsoft Alliance Director and Paul Horn to Head of Global Cloud Alliances, the business further boosted its Microsoft Alliance team.
“Nasuni is a longstanding Microsoft Azure partner. This is a great milestone, representing impressive growth,” said Jurgen Willis, Vice President, Azure Specialized Workloads and Storage at Microsoft. “We have hundreds of joint enterprise customers who benefit from the excellent performance, security, and durability of Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, which serves as an ideal foundation for the Nasuni File Data Platform.”
Enterprises can replace outdated file storage and data protection methods with a set of improved file services thanks to the Nasuni File Data Platform and Azure Blob Storage. These services simplify infrastructure, offer round-the-clock business continuity, boost end-user productivity, and provide data insights. Nasuni uses extremely effective, immutable snapshots to establish a comprehensive and secure history of the whole file share, which can subsequently be restored to any point in time, making full use of Microsoft Azure’s object storage. Nasuni Continuous File Versioning®, a patented technology that automates data preservation and does away with the requirement for a separate investment in backup software and hardware, enables the Nasuni File Data Platform to save all file changes in Azure. Recovery is quick, allowing IT to recover deleted files or even whole
“The Nasuni-Azure snapshotting approach just works,” said Joe Marando, CIO at JERDE, a global architecture firm whose portfolio includes The Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles, California; Namba Parks in Osaka, Japan; and the Bellagio and Palms resorts in Las Vegas, Nevada. “If ransomware hits, you just go back and restore your data from right before the attack, and you get your data back. I love the file recovery functionality with Nasuni.”
Nasuni helps Microsoft’s clients realise considerable cost reductions in the Azure file environment in addition to driving cloud use. Customers of Microsoft and Nasuni together include:
- JERDE: The international design business required a method for transferring data up to 100 MB between locations that were separated by oceans. On Microsoft Azure, Nasuni offered their solution, which provides quick international collaboration, file synchronisation with unlimited storage capacity, and quick file data and ransomware recovery.
- Pernod Ricard: The multinational company is the owner of some of the biggest brands in the spirits industry, including Jameson Irish Whiskey and Absolut Vodka. The firm decreased its recovery time objectives (RTO) from more than 24 hours to only 30 minutes by consolidating files from 55 sites throughout EMEA on Nasuni and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. This allowed the company to significantly minimise its IT infrastructure.
- Ramboll: This engineering and architecture business has 300 satellite offices spread over 35 different nations. It was difficult to maintain a worldwide file system at this size, particularly for data security and recovery. Via Microsoft Azure, Nasuni offered a single global namespace for all sites, simplifying management and eliminating the need to maintain intricate mirrored systems while drastically lowering recovery point goals (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTOs).
“This achievement is due to an incredible collaboration we have maintained with Microsoft over the years. Nasuni is a perfect complement to Azure’s storage portfolio. The combination of Microsoft Azure Blob Storage and Nasuni’s file data services provide enterprises with a global file share that makes files accessible from anywhere and protected from anything,” said David Grant, President at Nasuni. “Together, customers get all these advanced capabilities for about half the total cost of ownership of legacy on-premises file storage and data protection.”
