Nasuni Launches Cloud Mirroring

Nasuni, a start-up based in Natick, Mass., announced a Cloud Mirroring capability that delivers data protection in the cloud.


Nasuni provides a simple, unified storage service via on-premise hardware that looks and feels like a traditional storage controller, but gains the advantages of the cloud by incorporating cloud storage in much the same way that a traditional storage array uses commodity disk drives.

With Cloud Mirroring, users' data resides in a primary cloud, while a copy of their data resides on a secondary cloud, and the entire process is managed by the Nasuni service behind the scenes.

Nasuni's unique management of the entire cloud-based storage enables synchronization of customer data between clouds without any additional data management work for the customer. Cloud Mirroring is delivered seamlessly to users, allowing them to focus on managing their data while Nasuni manages the back-end.

"Customers have made it clear that there's no such thing as too much data protection when it comes to cloud storage," said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. "In true Nasuni fashion, we wanted to be the first to give the enterprise Cloud Mirroring functionality that's simple to use and adds no additional bandwidth demand. All of our customers are still covered by our SLA, but for those who want to go the extra mile to protect their data, only Nasuni offers Cloud Mirroring."

  • In October 2012, Nasuni raised  $20 million in Series C funding for its enterprise cloud gateway.  The funding came from a new key investor,.Previous investors Flybridge Capital Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners and Sigma Partners also participated in the financing.
  • Nasuni is headed by Andres Rodriguez, who previously was founder and CTO of Archivas, which developed an enterprise-class cloud storage system and was acquired by Hitachi Data Systems in 2006. Earlier, he was CTO of the New York Times, where he drove digital strategy at NYTimes and Boston.com.
