Enterprise File Fabric™ and Nasuni
Cloud File Services for a Global Workforce

Why The Enterprise File Fabric and Nasuni?

The Enterprise File Fabric™ provides enhanced file services for Nasuni filers and storage, increasing productivity and security.  The Fabric enables users to work with the Nasuni file system and other storage outside the office, without the need for VPN's or VDI. It does not replicate or copy data and supports bimodal access.

While Nasuni Edge Appliances can be deployed to “unlimited offices” not everyone works in an office, and few work in an office all the time. How can they access the current version of a file when they need it? It’s also challenging collaborating with external partners, with users sharing copies of files through email and unsanctioned public services.  With the File Fabric all users, whether remote, at home, or offline, as well as trusted partners, can search, browse and access their global cloud filesystem. Data remains on the Nasuni cloud platform, with full AD-backed permissions and locking providing secure access to files whether inside or outside the office.

"The File Fabric from Storage Made Easy enabled us to have web scale remote access to our Nasuni SMB file shares, inclusive of Microsoft Teams support. This enabled us to retire a secondary remote access file sharing solution we were using from Egnyte”.

- Todd Dughman Director of Information Technology at TNP.
