Overall Satisfaction with Nasuni Cloud Storage

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.
  • User satisfaction.
  • Satisfaction from the leadership.
  • Huge amount of time saved when restoring files.
I am not sure if we looked into any other cloud storage applications or software. But I do highly recommend Nasuni. If you have feedback, they actually listen. We even got to meet with the founder and he listened to a lot of our feedback. Whether or not they will implement and suggestions, having that listening ear is refreshing.
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.
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.
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.
