We use this for the whole company. It is an incredible application for data storage and recovery.

It really helps in terms of stability and speed. We offload the majority of our data to the cloud and have a cache of local storage. Nasuni's algorithm determines the most accessed files and pulls those into the cache. Even from the cloud though, most users don't notice much latency.

We create snapshots every 5ish minutes, which makes recovery very quick.
  • Support is amazing.
  • Interface is user friendly and straightforward.
  • Depending on how much cache you're willing to allocate, it's a super slick solution.
  • Better analytics when issues arise.
  • Better onboarding documentation.
  • Real-time monitoring.
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.

We use our Nasuni Cloud Storage appliance for 95 percent of our CIFS data, as well as some of our NFS data. This includes roaming profiles, home directories, and network shares. It has addressed our concern regarding storage capacity. If we need more space, we just increase the size of our subscription.
  • 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.
  • I wish there was greater ability to manage the data on the filer. For instance, culling the data for duplicates and cleaning up old data. We currently use a third party tool, which is very slow to run against many Terabytes of data. If this was included in the product from the ground up, I expect it could be much more efficient.
  • This is not the least expensive product on the market. That being said, for what it does, we find it to be a very worth while investment.
It is great for organizations that do not want to be limited to the size of their storage appliance. Since the hardware is used primarily as a cache, there is no cap of the amount of data. Anything beyond the cache size gets stored in the cloud, and Nasuni has advanced logic that ensures the most active data stays in cache, so performance is not impacted.
