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® Cloud File Services™ is a software as a service (SaaS) platform that allows IT teams to gain a more scalable, affordable, manageable, and highly available file infrastructure that meets cloud-first objectives and eliminates tedious data migrations and forklift upgrades. 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.

This new feature allows convenient access to sharing data-rich graphs as well as other presentations.

Power BI Licensing Options – What fits your needs best?

Power BI Desktop

This free version of Power BI is designed for the single user to create ad hoc reporting and data exploration. This software, unlike the other two options is installed directly to your local desktop. The dataset size is limited to 1GB per individual dataset and an overall storage quote of 10GB per user. With this option you also have the ability to review reports or dashboards that have been published in a Premium workspace (see below). While Power BI Desktop can create reports that the user can view, it lacks the ability to share with others. Plus there are gaps in functionality between the two, see the chart below for details.
