How It Works – Nasuni By Connor Fee on February 28, 2012 “We found that from a functionality and performance standpoint, the Nasuni Storage Controller (Filer) was better than our current infrastructure. At first, I had a hard time believing a storage solution that securely incorporated the cloud could match the performance of a local NAS.” – Matt Donehoo, Director of IT At the heart of the Nasuni offering is our on-premises storage controller, the Nasuni Filer, which provides both the point of control and access for shared storage in Nasuni deployments. Available through a variety of protocols (CIFS/NFS/iSCSI/HTTPS), the Nasuni storage controller delivers storage capacity for NAS or SAN workloads and will support files, databases, and even VM storage – it’s the perfect storage solution for remote and branch offices.

That's what we call the "public cloud" today, as opposed to the "private cloud," which refers to the application of public cloud technologies and practices to one's own data center. And guess what? The public cloud was where the action was in 2012 -- and it's where much of the action is going to be in 2013.

It seems that everyone with a computer spends a lot of time acquiring data and then trying to find a way to store it.

Cloud storage Cloud storage is a model of networked enterprise storage where data is stored in virtualized pools of storage which are generally hosted by third parties. Hosting companies operate large data centers, and people who require their data to be hosted buy or lease storage capacity from them.
