Nasuni is a killer replacement for the traditional local file server and it gives you the ability to get cross-office collaboration really humming along.
Nasuni was our only real choice for being able to leverage object storage and still have the flexibility of traditional file storage that is needed for all our different use cases.
Moving our 3D tomography images to the Nasuni/Azure platform has protected our capital budget from large and lengthy storage procurement requests every two to three years. We estimate we saved about $1.3 million in storage costs in the first year alone.
With traditional backup, if a file is lost or crashed or destroyed by a user we could only go back in time to the last night. Now we can go back one hour. We can beat the 24-hour recovery and get it down to half an hour or a max of one hour without any user impact.
