  • Key Considerations in Collaboration Environments for AEC May 4 2021 3:00 pm UTC 15 mins
    Rohn Noirot, Professional Services Project Executive, Nasuni
    Creating Architecture, Engineering drawings for buildings, airports, roadways and landscaping is an intricate process. Allowing AEC companies to effectively share cloud data around the globe at local LAN speeds is critical to user workflow and hitting project budgets and timelines.

    By harnessing the power of the cloud, architects and engineers can work together on the same project files as if they were sitting next to each other. Engineering and design teams no longer need to wait for large files to transfer between locations and can effectively share CAD files between offices.

    In this session, a AEC industry veteran takes a deeper look into the technology architecture of how modern cloud file services are enabling AEC firms to store, share and protect the most valuable assets of their business, the data.
  • [Ep.1] Storage Modernization: Gaining the Competitive Edge With the Cloud Apr 28 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Greg Schulz - Storage.IO | Stephen Skidmore, Director of Product Marketing and Tom Rose, VP of Technical Marketing at Nasuni
    Switching from legacy, on-premises storage to cloud storage has distinct advantages, including scalability, interoperability and costs savings. In a world where businesses are still adjusting to the events of 2020, these benefits are more useful and apparent in 2021 than ever before.

    But not all cloud storage solutions are built equally, and different industries and businesses have different challenges that require different solutions. In episode 1 of Nasuni’s ‘The Power of Cloud Storage’ series we’re diving into what enterprises need to consider from their cloud storage solutions and hearing from those in the field why the right modernization approach can redefine your enterprise storage strategy.

    Join us to hear:

    - The benefits of moving to the cloud - including consolidating NAS and file server silos, enhancing cross-office file sharing, improving data protection, reducing operational inefficiencies and eliminating capacity limitations
    - How a cloud-first approach to your storage can future-proof your business by centralizing data, increasing collaboration and data protection, and offering unrivaled disaster recovery
    - How enterprises can reduce or eliminate legacy file infrastructure capex and opex costs by shifting to cloud-based file storage
    - And more
  • Nasuni and AWS Shatter Cost Barriers of VDI Apr 27 2021 3:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    Tom Rose, VP of Technical Marketing at Nasuni and Andrew Kloman, Global Technology Lead, Digital Workplace Partners at AWS
    When stay-at-home work orders came down, enterprise IT administrators were under immediate stress to make sure that the required IT resources – VDI, augmented security/data protection systems and cloud services – were all within immediate reach.

    Enterprise IT’s response to COVID-19 demonstrates that VDI in the cloud is becoming the preferred environment for hosting an at-home workforce because it makes access to corporate desktops and apps available anywhere, anytime, through any device in a secure, centrally managed way. Resources are spun-up simply and immediately.

  • VDI Will Never be the Same (And Neither Will Your Workforce) Recorded: Apr 7 2021 47 mins
    Tom Rose, VP of Technical Marketing at Nasuni and John Webster, Senior Partner at Evaluator Group
    When stay-at-home work orders came down, enterprise IT administrators were under immediate stress to make sure that the required IT resources – VDI, augmented security/data protection systems and cloud services – were all within immediate reach.

    Enterprise IT’s response to COVID-19 demonstrates that VDI in the cloud is becoming the preferred environment for hosting an at-home workforce because it makes access to corporate desktops and apps available anywhere, anytime, through any device in a secure, centrally managed way. Resources are spun-up simply and immediately.

    Leading IT industry analyst Evaluator Group believes that the ability to support cloud VDI at scale will become a permanent fixture of enterprise IT strategies. This webinar reviews the evolution of VDI from on-premises to cloud and notes the cost-efficiencies gained along the way. It also highlights the effectiveness of converging cloud-based file storage with cloud VDI to reduce IT cost, complexity, ... and stress.
  • A Radical New Approach to Enterprise File Storage with Google Cloud & Nasuni Recorded: Mar 30 2021 33 mins
    Andrew Smith, Cloud Infrastructure Services Research Manager, IDC & Bobby Silva, Global Director of Google Alliances, Nasuni
    Moving servers and applications to the cloud has been the focus of infrastructure modernization efforts for the past several years. But now companies large and small are looking for ways to leverage the benefits of the cloud for file storage. However, due to the inherent complexity, cost, and latency challenges, these file storage workloads are often one of the last pieces of the infrastructure modernization puzzle. Now, file storage is primed for cloud disruption with Google and Nasuni tackling these issues with a much simpler solution that also cuts costs by up to 70%.

    Register to watch Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC, and Bobby Silva, Global Director of Google Alliances, of Nasuni discuss current trends in enterprise cloud storage, challenges organizations struggle with around file storage, and how Google and Nasuni are bringing to market a modern, enterprise cloud file storage offering that pairs Google’s object storage economics with Nasuni’s cloud-native global file system.

  • Nasuni vs. NetApp for Next-Generation Cloud File Storage Recorded: Dec 15 2020 18 mins
    Ken Clipperton, Lead Analyst, Storage, DCIG
    File-based workloads are at the heart of innovation and of collaborative workflows. Enterprises today store multiple petabytes of unstructured file data. They increasingly need to process that data in the cloud and to access and collaborate on that file data from many different locations.
    As enterprises deploy these new workloads and expanded usage scenarios, many discover that their legacy filers no longer meet all of their requirements. Consequently, most enterprises now rely on multiple point solutions, each with its own management overhead. To address these challenges, enterprises are looking for a next-generation file infrastructure that:
    • Eliminates silos of data
    • Enables workloads to migrate to the cloud
    • Meets the secure access and collaboration requirements of a distributed enterprise

    This webinar compares Nasuni Cloud File Storage and NetApp Cloud File Services. It is based on DCIG’s recent research into enterprise file services and a DCIG Competitive Intelligence Report commissioned by Nasuni.

    Join this webinar to gain insight into:
    • New dimensions of file storage scalability
    • Seven drivers for cloud file storage adoption
    • NetApp Cloud Services strengths
    • Nasuni Cloud File Storage strengths
    • Questions that help identify the solution that best fits your requirements

    The webinar will include a live Q&A session with DCIG and Nasuni professionals.

  • The Cloud Era of File Storage is Here Recorded: Dec 9 2020 23 mins
    Anne Blanchard, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Nasuni
    The technology to store, manage, and protect enterprise data has been around for two decades. Just as other technologies have migrated to the cloud supporting new paradigms of how people get work done, moving file infrastructure has been slow to catch on. In this session we’ll cover why that is, and how a new hybrid cloud approach radically simplifies IT by eliminating all backup and disaster recovery infrastructure and cuts costs in half. In this session we’ll discuss:

    - Why traditional file infrastructure has outgrown its usefulness
    - Why lifting-and-shifting these technologies to the cloud doesn’t work
    - The real-life benefits of new cloud-era hybrid approach, shared by real customers
