Nexsan has announced that its flagship product Unity has achieved the milestone of more than 100 installations since it began shipping in September 2016. Additionally, Unity bookings in Q1 2017 have grown 215% over Q3 2016, resulting in several millions of dollars in total revenue to date. Unity sales are expected to have a significant positive impact on Nexsan’s overall business in 2017.
Nexsan’s Unity is a unified storage platform that combines enterprise NAS and high performance block storage, plus enterprise file sync-and-share for today’s connected world. The solution provides the ease of cloud availability with the security of an Active Directory based on-premises private cloud at no additional cost, enabling users to work remotely from anywhere in the world at any time. Unity includes a plug and play ability to sync files across any number of disparate locations with secure communication across standard Internet connections.
Due to increasing customer interest the company is accelerating its market expansion and recently launched Unity in the Japanese market through local resellers. The Unity solution is now available across North America, EMEA, and APAC regions.
“The simple fact is that businesses today are collaborative. Whether that’s within the business itself, across locations and devices, or through working with people outside of the business; customers and prospects. That is where Unity comes in,” explains Jonathan Lassman, director at Epaton. “Unity is perfect for our customers that are looking for a secure and simple way to collaborate. With peer to peer file sharing and syncing, Unity delivers the cloud experience on premises, keeping data private and secure, and never in the public cloud.”
“It’s been very gratifying to see the rapid customer adoption of Unity,” comments Geoff Barrall, COO at Nexsan. “Our vision of delivering not only the best NAS system on the market but also one with unique capabilities, such as n-way sync and mobile access, has proven to be highly popular. After achieving so many milestones with Unity in 2016, we look forward to what the next year will hold.”
