Boston (ots/PRNewswire)

New report recognizes Nasuni’s ability to provide healthcare organizations with global file data access, automated data protection with near-instantaneous ransomware recovery, unlimited scalability and cost savings

the Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today announced that DCIG Nasuni in a new report titled “DCIG TOP 5 Storage for Healthcare Solutions” as one of the top five healthcare storage solutions.

Today’s healthcare environments require data storage solutions that provide extremely high availability, cross-site collaboration, and fast data access to treat patients quickly and effectively. Data protection is paramount and storage solutions must also comply with compliance and privacy regulations. With the rapid growth of medical images, digital image archiving and communication systems (PACS), and organizational file sharing, cloud-based file storage solutions offer a compelling way to address all of these needs.

“Nasuni cleverly combines the benefits of distributed file storage and cloud object storage to give users the unlimited on-demand capacity and economics of the cloud with the file performance they expect,” writes Mike Matchett, DCIG Consulting analyst and author of the report. “Combined with comprehensive data protection for backup, DR and ransomware, the solution scales to meet the needs of modern healthcare IT for image and file storage.”

Nasuni offers a cloud-native file services platform based on cloud object storage that replaces traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) and all associated file server infrastructure with a secure, simplified and infinitely scalable solution. Healthcare organizations benefit from economical cross-site primary file storage capacity, fast access via standard file-sharing protocols, and data protection, all at a lower cost than traditional on-premises file infrastructure.

DCIG ranks Nasuni among the top five healthcare storage solutions for three key capabilities:

  • Cloud-based scale, capacity and economics – Nasuni is partnering with the big three hyperscalers to leverage their scalability, durability and cost-efficiency. Healthcare organizations leverage the physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to securely store all customer file data in AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud object storage.
  • Distributed file access with fast edge performance – Nasuni saves a copy of the current working set of files on “Edge” virtual machines (VM), which can be deployed locally or in a nearby cloud region. All changes to files on each Edge VM are regularly updated in the cloud object storage stored and then pushed to all other Edge VMs worldwide, giving healthcare organizations the scalability and longevity of the cloud while enjoying ubiquitous high-speed access to shared files across all locations.
  • Natively integrated backup, DR and ransomware protection – Nasuni has built its UniFS™ file system on cloud object storage and stores all incremental changes as immutable snapshots. This makes it easy and fast to restore file data to any edge location at any point in time in minutes, allowing for near-effortless recovery from ransomware, data corruption, or disasters.

“HJF has undergone a modernization initiative, modernizing the infrastructure behind the entire organization, and Nasuni has been an important part of that,” said Marc De Serio, chief technology officer at the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF). “Nasuni is helping HJF reduce and simplify on-premises infrastructure, improve manageability and move from a multi-data center methodology to a hybrid cloud approach.”

“Healthcare organizations need to provide their physicians and staff with easy and fast access to files, and they need comprehensive protection against ransomware and other threats,” said David Grant, Chief Commercial Officer at Nasuni -5 Healthcare Data Storage Solutions by DCIG is a validation of the value we bring to hospitals and medical practices around the world by reducing file infrastructure costs while providing the scalability, protection and simplified, centralized management, that IT needs in healthcare.”
