Nasuni | File Infrastructure Done Right

nasuni-file-infrastructure-done-right

Tired of upgrading NAS and file servers and migrating data every 3-5 years? With Nasuni you don’t have to.

File storage is not always simple and file servers are painful; organizations often have to overcome fundamental obstacles in object storage like latency, file retrieval, and organizational issues to make object storage usable for storing business files.

Nasuni enables organizations to store, protect, and collaborate on files by offering a unique solution which combines a master “gold copy” record of files stored in Azure in combination with both physical and virtual filers which live at the customer’s remote sites.

Securing Guest Access Without Paying More with Azure Active Directory B2B

Securing-Guest-Access----Azure-AD-B2B

Working with external companies and partner organizations just became a lot easier thanks to one of Azure AD’s service features: Azure AD Business-to-Business (B2B).

Companies always looking for solutions to improve their security and simplify collaboration. In today’s workplace, it’s very common for organizations to work with external partners. Office 365 is a great solution to collaborate with people both inside and outside your organizations, as it provides an easy way to share documents with external users or invite them to join your Microsoft Teams. Unfortunately, when you share using the default methods, your external users aren’t subject to the same security policies, such as multifactor authentication, that you’ve set up for your internal users. 

What most organizations are looking for is a way to manage external access that is predictable and consistent with their security practices. A hidden gem that is part of Azure Active Directory and solves this problem is leveraging Azure Active Directory B2B users. Azure AD B2B is not a different version of Active Directory, but just an additional feature that allows one organization to invite members from other organizations to share application access. This tool is beneficial not only for seamless collaboration, but it decreases the worry of security issues.

So, what is a Server Subscription? A SS is when you subscribe to the use of the Windows Server or SQL Server family of products on a Cloud Solution Provider Agreement (CSP) and have the ability to use that software in Azure through the Hybrid Use Benefit (HUB).
