Nasuni Migrates Terabytes of Customer Primary Storage Data Between Clouds Without Disrupting IT Operations – Press Releases – News
A large energy services company recently consolidated all of its storage under Nasuni’s SLA backed service to take advantage of both the 100 percent availability guarantee and multi-site capabilities. Their data included files for finance, IT, account management and operations that needed to be migrated from legacy cloud providers to one of Nasuni’s preferred providers.
“I never felt a glitch,” said the IT manager responsible for primary storage. “It was smoother than I’d have ever thought possible, and our users never knew the difference.”
Nasuni moved all of the data from the original cloud provider to Amazon S3 using Amazon EC2 so as to avoid overloading the customer’s own network. Per Nasuni’s security model, all data was encrypted at all times; Nasuni never had any visibility into the data. The customer now has over 15 TB of data with Nasuni.
“Now this truly is a ‘set it and forget it’ type of service,” said the IT manager. “In addition, thanks to Nasuni’s multi-site capability, our users and sister companies no longer need to use a VPN to get access to their data. Not only does this make data access more convenient for our remote users, but it also greatly improved data retrieval when compared to going through a VPN tunnel, as was the case before.”
