NATICK, Mass., /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni®, creator of the storage industry's leading cloud gateway, today announced 200 percent growth in customers adopting cloud storage in just one quarter at the end of 2010.  Industries with high file growth such as manufacturing, engineering and architecture, law firms, educational institutions, business services and healthcare industries are driving the adoption of cloud storage. The expansion of the customer base also marked a twofold increase in the capacity stored with the Nasuni Filer in the same period with Nasuni customers achieving compression savings of over 30 percent for the tens of millions of files they store securely.

"Nasuni makes the cloud useful for a company like my client's.  I wasn't happy with many of the alternatives on the market. We required fast access to files and one with hard-core security. Nasuni solved these two issues through local caching and by holding the keys.  Installation was simple and Nasuni provides full service storage provider benefits - giving us credentials, end to end encryption, consolidated billing, monitoring and support so even if there's an issue with either Amazon or Rackspace, Nasuni notifies us directly and immediately," said Robert Sarkes, IT Consultant to a leading infrastructure provider for environmental and energy markets.

Expanding on its hallmark of simplicity, Nasuni recently launched a native data migration service to make moving large data sets to the cloud easier and more efficient. The Nasuni Filer also provides NFS support in addition to CIFS, serving a broader variety of environments. Nasuni's technology has been recognized with industry awards including being named the Gold winner in Storage Magazine's Storage Management Tools category, Gold winner in Tech Awards Circle's Midrange Service category and Winner of the 2010 MITX Technology Award for Cloud Computing.

With its recent infusion of $15 million in Series B funding from Flybridge Capital Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners and Sigma Partners, Nasuni plans to continue to expand its presence globally and expand its workforce that doubled in 2010.

"2010 marked an inflection point with regard to making storage-as-a-service a viable business consideration.  Customer acceptance of our technology shows that primary cloud storage is a mainstream solution that meets the needs of a variety of business users," said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. "Our success is also a result of our ability to support all major virtualization platforms, and proven cloud providers such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3),  Rackspace Cloud Files, Windows Azure, AT&T, among others.  2011 has started strong and we should see even higher growth not only within specific sectors but also across the board for organizations feeling the pain of data growth and hitting capacity limitations."
