SHI UK Partners with Nasuni to Offer Cloud NAS

SHI Customers Can Leverage Microsoft Azure with Nasuni to Gain a Global File System that is Bottomless, Backup-less and Accessible from Anywhere

NATICK, Massachusetts, Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni®, a provider of Cloud NAS to distributed organizations, today announced that it has partnered with SHI UK, an operating unit of SHI International Corp., one of the world's largest IT solution providers.

As part of the new agreement, SHI now offers Nasuni to its customers, which enables large, distributed organizations to leverage Microsoft Azure to create a cloud-based NAS (network attached storage). With Nasuni, SHI UK customers can store all their files in a NAS service that provides the speed of a local NAS, as well as properties made possible by the Microsoft Azure cloud: unlimited capacity, automatic backup and accessibility from anywhere in the world.

Nasuni is able to achieve this kind of functionality because it combines on-premises hardware with its proprietary UniFS cloud file system. All data is encrypted using keys that only the customer controls; Nasuni, SHI UK and Microsoft never have access to customer files.

"SHI UK's knowledgeable sales teams and trusted customer support make it the perfect partner to bring Nasuni to customers throughout EMEA," said Warren Mead, Vice President of Business Development and Channels at Nasuni. "Demand for our cloud NAS solution is growing quickly, so we're glad to have an organization like SHI working alongside us as we continue to expand internationally."

"This partnership is yet another example of the interest we're seeing in Nasuni," said Scott Sinclair, analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "The storage status quo simply isn't working in the face of the exponential growth of file data, and large organizations are looking for alternative solutions like Nasuni that leverage the cloud."

"Every partnership we explore and sign begins with our customers' needs and demands," said Darren Brodrick, SHI's UK General Manager. "Our partnership with Nasuni grew out of the increasing pain that businesses are facing with files. The amount of files that IT needs to manage is doubling every two or three years, while they're facing growing demands to increase access globally while cutting costs. With Nasuni, customers gain unlimited capacity, automatic backup and fast access for about half of what it typically costs to refresh their file backup systems alone."
