"Our customers have long been asking for a solution that will enable them to provide centrally managed, unified storage to all their locations around the world," said Lee Biggenden, director of Nephos. "In the past, they've had to resort to slow VPNs or cumbersome replication and WAN acceleration schemes. And nothing scaled gracefully to handle more than a handful of locations. With Nasuni, our customers can now deploy a proven storage-as-a-service offering that uses the cloud to provide that unified storage infrastructure, and it looks and feels like the storage arrays they've been deploying for years. For many of our customers, Nasuni is the solution to the challenge of distributed storage."

Nephos helps many of the U.K.'s leading companies develop and create an overall cloud strategy, from monitoring cloud deployments, to using public, private and hybrid clouds to address a wide range of IT functions, including storage, Infrastructure as a Service, data analytics and everything in between. Nephos remains independent and partners with the best solution providers – those that can point not only to proven use cases, but also customers who can vouch for the flawless performance of their enterprise-class offerings.

Nasuni, which quadrupled the size of its enterprise customer base in the U.S. last year and is also growing rapidly in Europe, enables IT leaders to address the challenges that arise in today's large, distributed organizations where users in remote and branch offices want the same high-performance access to files enjoyed by those in headquarters. Nasuni brings the cloud into the data center as a component of an enterprise storage solution – one with limitless capacity that scales with ease and lowers storage costs by up to 60 percent. With Nasuni, IT can deliver distributed performance with centralized control.

What's more, IT maintains complete ownership over Active Directory and access control for individuals and devices, including smartphones and tablets. Making the cloud secure means that all information shared through Nasuni and the cloud is encrypted at rest and in transit, and only the customer holds the encryption keys.

"Lee and the team at Nephos understand that while the cloud is a game changer, it is a raw component that needs to be built into enterprise-class systems," said Andres Rodriguez, CEO and co-founder of Nasuni. "Together with Nephos, we are helping companies deliver uniform storage infrastructure to offices around the globe – making end users and IT more productive. Together we're helping enterprises cut through the fog of cloud washing to understand how they can use this incredible technological advancement in their infrastructure today."

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
