NATICK, Mass., January 20, 2011 – Nasuni, creator of the storage industry’s leading cloud gateway, today announced a new migration service for the Nasuni Filer, enabling users to quickly and efficiently move existing files to trusted cloud storage providers.
The latest 2.4 release of the Nasuni Filer adds a new native data migration service that can easily move large data sets to the cloud while preserving all of a customer’s existing ACLs and permissions. The Nasuni migration service automatically adjusts the ingestion rate to make it simpler and more efficient to move data. There is no longer a need to use third-party copy utilities. Users can choose to migrate from multiple file servers simultaneously by adding them as data sources to the Nasuni Filer. The new data migration service provides administrators with comprehensive audit logs available as text files.
“Customers have been asking for a simpler way to move data to the cloud. We knew that we could simplify migration dramatically by adding it as a built-in service into our existing Nasuni Filer,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “IT managers are under intense pressure to get more done with fewer resources. We already give businesses a quick try-and-buy download so they can kick the tires in just few minutes. This latest release aims to further support the busy IT administrator by making it uncomplicated and error proof to effortlessly bring files into the cloud securely.”
The Nasuni Filer provides all of the functionality of a traditional file server without any of the hassle. The Filer never runs out of capacity and needs no backup. Working in partnership with trusted cloud storage providers, Nasuni delivers enterprise class storage packaged as an affordable virtual file server for businesses.
