Nirvanix, a provider of cloud storage platform, has launched CloudNAS, an enterprise-class storage software to companies seeking instant access to secure global storage on the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network.
According to the company, the CloudNAS for Linux mounts the Nirvanix storage delivery network as a virtual drive that can be accessed via NFS, CIFS or FTP. After installation, storage administrators can apply standard file, directory or access permissions and users on the network can then access the Nirvanix-mapped drive from their existing applications or storage processes.
Additionally, storage administrators get access to the Nirvanix SDN functionality such as automated policy-based file replication, single global namespace that scales to petabytes, and storage of secure, encrypted data on one or more of Nirvanix’s globally clustered storage nodes, said Nirvanix.
Patrick Harr, founder and CEO of Nirvanix, said: CloudNAS is an onramp for the secure and cost effective storing of data on the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network. In these tough economic times, CloudNAS reduces the costs of maintaining in-house storage solutions for archiving and backup, easily integrates into existing storage processes, and eliminates the need for organizations to purchase expensive hardware. Just as important, CloudNAS enables a company to accommodate exponential growth in storage while shifting Capex to Opex.
