AWS Storage Gateway

If you have a relatively large infrastructure in place and are consistently backing up servers for legal or compliance reasons, this is a good solution. Also, this fits where you may store logs for review in a point-in-time type of ecological view of your infrastructure. Finally, if you have a large reporting delivery (ETL), this is very handy as well as a quick shortcut for delivery of locally generated reports from the servers.

Nasuni Cloud Storage

Well suited if you have a lot of data that doesn't need to be stored and read right away. I think even if you don't have much data, you can still use it for it's intended purpose to great effect, but think of it as the more data you have, the even better it will work.I don't think it would be particularly useful if you already have a slick file restore system in place and you don't need to store your data elsewhere with redundancy.

Nasuni Cloud Storage

  • The management console is extremely simple and easy to navigate, making common tasks easy to do.
  • Our storage appliance is configured to snapshot data several times an hour, making the risk of data loss very low.
  • Data restores are very intuitive, and take seconds to initiate regardless of whether it is one file or 300GB of data. We have successfully restored many Gigs of data in minutes.

As I mentioned, the user interface is amazing and straight forward. It's very easy to learn how to configure and restore files. I would like a bit more reporting, especially in terms of live reporting and monitoring. The support is great when you have a question on how to do something, which helps with usability.

Again, it may have a little to do with the size and speed of your own environment, but we've been nothing but pleased with the speed of access of the files - even pulling old files from the cloud storage. Recovery of huge and many data files is a bit slow if you don't have the specs of the filer up to snuff.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Storage Gateway

We tried Red Hat Ceph Storage since we are a Centos/RHEL shop and there is a lot of engineering expertise on hand to manage it with configuration management tools and automation in place. What we discovered (rather quickly) was that the speed was difficult to bump up into nominal levels for attached disks, the network pipes' size did not matter, and there was an issue with logical disk management that would have added an extra layer of complexity to the whole inception of the product. We would have had to manage a backup of the system to our own buckets on top of implementing the tool.

Nasuni Cloud Storage

The technical support and escalation path for Nasuni is much more reliable and efficient. No getting transferred to various teams. Often times, the person who answers your call is able to resolve your issue. If they cannot, they get the case assigned to the appropriate engineer right away. Time to close has always been very good.

Return on Investment

AWS Storage Gateway

  • Cheap and reliable offsite backup storage.
  • Low configuration time via API.
  • Shared storage solution for multiple clients.
Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nasuni Cloud Storage

  • Dramatically reduced time spent managing our storage platform. Quotas and reporting tools take all the guesswork out of data growth. Updates are easy to deploy. Time freed up can be used for more user-facing activities that we consider more valuable to the organization.
  • The overall stability of the platform has been very good. We have been running on the same hardware for the past four years without any performance issues.
