Nexsan, a provider of storage solutions, has announced enhancements to its Unity hyper-unified storage platform to provide users with additional methods of accessing and sharing data on-premises or on-the-go. Unity now provides mobile apps for iOS and Android, as well as web apps for laptops and desktops, to enable users to access and share data more conveniently.
According to the vendor, Unity is a scalable, flexible NAS device that allows IT to mix-and-match high-performance flash with inexpensive hard disks and mix block storage for VMware, databases or Exchange with file storage for home directories and sharing. It includes a full private cloud infrastructure at no additional cost and offers a plug-and-play ability to sync files across any number of disparate locations with secure communication across standard Internet connections the easiest way to ensure high availability across locations and high-speed access to large files. It also helps to alleviate the risk of unsanctioned business user adoption of various public cloud-sharing services, by delivering similar functionality and convenience, yet fully under the control and protection of corporate IT.
Workers increasingly need access to critical business content from anywhere they want to work, said Victoria Grey, CMO, Nexsan, noting that with the release of the new Unity mobile and web apps, users can have the access they need to browse, upload, download and share files with the confidence IT needs that data is both protected and secure.
Using the new Unity mobile and web apps users can create and send secure links via email to files stored on Unity, eliminating the need to send large email files and providing access to information from anywhere. According to the vendor, a private cloud infrastructure ensures both privacy and security, using Active Directory permissions and credentials, while delivering seamless access without a VPN.
The Unity mobile apps are available from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. The Unity web app is also available for free to any Unity user. For more information, go to www.nexsan.com/enterprise-file-sync-share.
