Dr. Joseph Slember, VP of engineering, DBM, commented:

"At DBM, we built technology that automates data migration and management between clouds while simplifying the movement of data among them. By combining the technology with Nasuni's file data services platform, users will gain faster file data migrations and more intelligent tiering, saving significant time and costs."

Paul Flanagan, CEO, Nasuni, said:

"The Nasuni File Data Platform includes the world's only cloud-native global file system that combines file and object storage delivering unlimited scale and capacity and we've built strong partnerships with Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud for the backend object storage. We are making file data migration, tiering, and data movement between clouds a frictionless service. Today, enterprises do not want to lock in all their data with a single cloud, but are instead adopting a multi-cloud approach. DBM's technology and the expertise we've gained will enable Nasuni to accelerate and innovate our support for data migration, multi-cloud and data mobility."
