Nasuni, a global provider of enterprise Storage as a Service, has raised $10 million in new venture capital financing. Previous investors Flybridge Capital Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners and Sigma Partners, as well as a strategic investor, all participated in this extension of Nasuni’s C round. The new financing brings the total funds raised by Nasuni to $53 million.
The Nasuni enterprise storage service provides globally distributed organizations with a unified storage infrastructure that gives all end-users fast access to a global file share no matter where they are located. The solution also provides IT with simple, centralized storage management and automatic data protection. Nasuni is privately held and based in Natick, Massachusetts.
“Simply put, we wanted a bigger share of Nasuni,” said Paul Flanagan, Managing Director at Sigma Partners. “With their disruptive technology and approach to delivering enterprise storage as a service, Nasuni is revolutionizing the way data storage is deployed. Clearly, we’re excited about the company and have been super impressed with its growth. The opportunity here is enormous and Nasuni is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of IT’s shift to the cloud.”
UniFS Global File System
Nasuni’s patented UniFS Global File System makes data available anywhere around the world, managed and protected, without replicating physical copies and without contention since there is only one master source of the data. This file data virtualization would drastically reduce the cost and burden of storing and managing end-user file data. The solutions would give IT a fast and easy way to scale enterprise storage to any number of locations across the globe.
“We’ve begun consistently displacing the likes of EMC and NetApp in global accounts,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “ We’re accomplishing this because The Nasuni service liberates data from the limitations and high cost of traditional storage silos. With this new financing, we will expand our outreach, and accelerate innovation and market adoption.”
