Cloud NAS Filer Flies to Azure and Beyond

Destination: Azure and other Microsoft locations. The virtual file server -- like everything else these days -- is designed to tap the cloud. It supports Windows CIFS Shares, ACL and Active Directory to fit into existing NAS environments. It also works with Hyper-V server virtualization, Windows Azure, Distributed File System (DFS) namespaces, and Windows Previous Versions.


In what the company has termed the most significant product update since its launch, Nasuni released version 2.0 of the Nasuni Filer with a range of performance enhancements for Microsoft Windows environments and full support for Hyper-V server virtualization, Windows Azure, Distributed File System (DFS) namespaces, and Windows Previous Versions.

Nasuni Filer 2.0 also now supports private clouds and allows customers to use their own cloud credentials.

The Nasuni Filer is a virtual file server that leverages the resources of the cloud. The Filer supports Windows CIFS Shares, ACL and Active Directory to fit into existing NAS environments. As a result, the Filer can be used to consolidate a NAS cluster into a single device or to support an existing application, such as a content manager or an image server.
