Andres Rodriguez, CEO at Nasuni (, says:

Today’s storage infrastructure has two major problems: High demand from many devices and users, and a need for large and elastic capacity driven by growth. With virtualization as a main driver, large images need to be accessed frequently and at high speeds. Traditional high-performance systems can get very costly for an ever-growing storage footprint.

One way to solve these problems is to scale out the front end of file servers for high performance while scaling out the back-end for capacity. A high performance demand-driven solution helps with the growing demands of the virtual environments. On the back-end a cloud-based NAS system addresses the growth and cost issues through unlimited and on-demand capacity.
