Get Ready for More Features and Still Lower All-flash Array Storage Prices

While the overall economy and even the broader technology sector largely boom, the enterprise storage space is feeling the pinch. As storage revenues level off and even drop, many people with whom I spoke at this past week’s HPE Discover shared their thoughts as to what is causing this situation. The short answer: there does not appear to be a single reason for the pullback in storage revenue but rather a perfect storm of events that is contributing to this situation that ultimately benefits organizations.

In this third and final installment in my interview series with Nexsan’s CEO Robert Fernander, he explains how Nexsan’s UNITY empowers organizations to bring this part of the world of shadow IT back under corporate control.

Private Enterprise File Sync-and-Share … and then There were Two

It was just a couple of months ago that I became aware that enterprise file sync-and-share capabilities were available for the first time behind corporate file walls with the introduction of Nexsan’s UNITY product. While at the time I could not find another storage system that offered similar capabilities, that all changed this week when HGST, a subsidiary of Western Digital, announced that it had partnered with CTERA, to offer a competitive product in the private enterprise file sync-and-share space.

The Introduction of Enterprise File Sync and Share into Mid-to-Enterprise Class Arrays; Interview with Nexsan CeO Robert Fernander, Part 2

Formally or informally, almost all size organizations currently implement file sync and share in some capacity. However, almost all organizations have reservations about its implementation, especially when using public cloud file sync and share solutions such as DropBox. Nexsan’s UNITY™ represents the first storage platform in the mid-to-enterprise market to introduce enterprise file sync and share that operates inside of corporate file walls. In part 2 of my interview series with Nexsan’s CEO, Robert (Bob) Fernander, he explains how this works and what benefits early Nexsan customers are seeing from it.
