The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary
storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on
a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and
take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become
automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible
Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount
of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem
secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure
costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information
governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data
retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability
and complete protection of the
The global architecture and engineering firm Environmental Systems Design, Inc., had enough capacity to handle its data. The challenge was protecting that data. The firm would often have 15TB of data in production at a given time and its existing backup solutions simply could not keep pace. After quickly outgrowing several other systems, ESD turned to Nasuni’s enterprise storage as a service. Now, thanks to Nasuni’s automated backup, which delivers unlimited versioning, fast disaster recovery and an unmatched RPO, IT can stop worrying about backup and focus on its core mission of enhancing business productivity.

IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.
