Together we will deliver an efficient and flexible operating model that combines on-premise hardware, cloud storage, and local performance for users."
Nasuni SIaaS offers a unified storage solution with cloud built in and delivered as a service. The solution, which is comprised of cloud storage and an on-premise controller, is managed by a proprietary technology. This unique approach of using cloud storage as a component of the overall solution delivers a single solution that meets the scalability, backup, disaster recovery, and reliability requirements of today's enterprise. Streamlined pricing and cost-effective endpoint controllers further enhance the solution's applicability in larger, cost-sensitive enterprise environments.
