Flybridge-backed Nasuni secures $20m in Series C led by new investor


Nasuni, a provider of enterprise storage to large, distributed businesses that has received previous backing from Flybridge Capital, North Bridge and Sigma Partners, has closed a $20m Series C financing round led by an undisclosed new investor.

Nasuni is an enterprise storage company that uses on-premise hardware and cloud storage to provide globally-distributed businesses with a consolidated storage system that includes mobile access for all remote and branch offices.

Consolidated storage brings all primary storage – such as file and block storage – together with built-in back-up, replication, and offsite protection using an on-site appliance connected to the cloud.

The company said the new funds will be used to expand sales and marketing efforts and to drive continued innovation in the storage-as-a-service market.

Flybridge, North Bridge and also participated in the financing.

“Before Nasuni, it simply was not possible to give dozens of offices across the globe high-performance access to a single storage volume, and customers have responded enthusiastically,” said Nasuni CEO Andres Rodriguez, pictured.

“This is not storage tiering or cloud archive, but primary storage delivered as a service.

“Combining this type of true innovation with the fact that our revenue has grown year over year by a factor of ten, and you can understand why investor interest was so strong.

“We’re thrilled that we were able to add such a respected and complementary new investor to our team, further validating our belief that consolidated storage-as-a-service is the solution that Enterprise organisations are looking for and Nasuni is best prepared to deliver.”
