Nasuni Posts its Second Consecutive Record Quarter

Nasuni, a provider of enterprise storage to large, distributed organizations, today announced that the first quarter of 2013 surpassed the previous quarter as the best in the history of the company, setting new records in every category.

"The secret of our growth is that we solve a real problem for IT," said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. "Until Nasuni, providing consolidated, uniform storage to all locations of a global enterprise had been a nightmare for IT. We provide a powerful, scalable, cost-effective service that gives everyone access to the global fileshare, but it looks and feels like the local storage they already know. Customers are buying Nasuni because our service solves a problem that many customers have been wrestling with for years."

During the first quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, Nasuni: 
  • More than doubled bookings, which increased by 156 percent;
  • More than doubled the number of enterprise customers, which grew by 164 percent;
  • Doubled average transaction size, which grew by 109 percent;
  • Nearly doubled the total terabytes of storage under management, which grew 80 percent; and
  • Now supports installations in 27 countries across six continents.

"Customers considering cloud storage often want to move away from procuring and managing on-premise infrastructure. Nasuni offers a storage service that eliminates the hassle of procuring on-premise hardware," said Laura DuBois, Program Vice President at IDC. "Their pricing model of charging a predictable terabyte / year subscription and embedding any hardware requirements into the service has proven very appealing to enterprises, as has the ability to provide any number of locations around the world with fast access to a global fileshare without compromising security or control."

"Many storage VARs worry about the cloud and what it will do to their business," said Eric Page, Director of Territory Sales at Adaptive Communications. "Not us. Nasuni has been a fantastic partner, with a model that understands the channel and the value we provide. As Nasuni grows, so does our opportunity."

Combining this success with the recent round of fundraising from late 2012, Nasuni is heavily investing in the growth of its sales and marketing teams.

In Q1 Nasuni also released its 2013 State of the Cloud Storage Industry, a critically acclaimed review of publicly available cloud storage. Thousands of enterprise storage leaders look to Nasuni for guidance when it comes to leveraging cloud technologies.
