Nasuni Adds Citrix XenServer Support For Virtual NAS Appliance

NATICK, Mass., November 9, 2010 – Nasuni, creator of the storage industry’s leading cloud gateway, today announced full support for Citrix® XenServer®, making the Nasuni Filer available to more than 50,000 XenServer production sites worldwide and rounding out Nasuni’s support on all three major server virtualization platforms.

Nasuni Filer is a virtual NAS appliance that installs seamlessly on a XenServer virtual machine to deliver primary storage from the cloud that is indistinguishable from local storage. Nasuni’s innovative caching technology enables the Nasuni Filer to operate as a virtual cloud file server, leveraging the unlimited capacity and data protection of the cloud with the performance of local primary storage. The combination of Nasuni and Citrix provides midrange businesses with a simply better NAS experience by slashing storage infrastructure costs, eliminating backups and automating provisioning.

“Deploying the Nasuni Filer as a virtual appliance on XenServer with unlimited primary capacity to the cloud radically alters the value proposition of NAS file servers by eliminating costly, proprietary NAS hardware, simplifying storage administration and providing unlimited primary storage to the cloud,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “Nasuni customers have the freedom to choose XenServer, VMware or Hyper-V as their virtualization platform and select from the leading cloud storage providers to create a NAS infrastructure where all of their storage pain points go away.”

The Nasuni Filer’s distribution as a software-only virtual appliance enables companies to leverage virtualization technology to reclaim and optimize their infrastructure without any capital expense. Customers avoid storage-related capital outlays, and instead only pay for the storage they use.
