The money will help Nasuni expand its cloud file storage for enterprises.
This week Nasuni, a company known for providing cloud-native file storage and sync services to enterprises, announced that it has received $60 million in growth funding. This move comes as organizations worldwide continue to accelerate cloud transformation efforts.
Two years ago, the pandemic drove the acceleration of cloud transformation, with organizations moving critical workloads to the cloud to support the new, remote work normal. Now, even as the crisis subsides, the demand for these solutions is not slowing down, including that of cloud file storage.
Large organizations, in particular, want to stay ahead of the curve and are moving (or looking to move) growing volumes of file data from traditional, hardware-based on-premise storage and data protection solutions to the cloud. The goal is to bring scalability, security and cost efficiency to the storage system, which is exactly what Nasuni facilitates.
File data storage at “a fraction of the cost” of traditional solutions
Founded in 2009, Nasuni provides a platform that consolidates file data in easily expandable cloud object storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional network-attached storage (NAS) and file server silos.
The solution sits as a virtual gateway between on-premises systems and distributed file storage in the cloud and provides IT admins with a single console to provision and manage file storage in any part of the world. This way, organizations can easily share and access files globally from the office, home or on the road. In addition, it also eliminates the need for complex legacy file backups and disaster recovery infrastructure.
“Your department, project, and organizational file shares and application workflows are at the heart of your firm’s productivity. Nasuni, combined with Microsoft Azure, AWS, or Google Cloud object storage, delivers a modern file infrastructure that spans any number of locations, eases administration, and costs less,” the company notes on its website.
