Nasuni Announces Support for AWS for Health Initiative to Improve Medical Cloud File Storage Workloads

Nasuni Corporation, a leader in cloud file storage, today announced support for the AWS for Health initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS for Health is an initiative with services and solutions from AWS and AWS partners specifically designed for customers in the healthcare, biopharma and genomics sectors.

The initiative makes it easier for healthcare customers to select the right tools and partners for their highest priority workloads. For Nasuni customers looking to accelerate deployments with solution-specific support, AWS for Health also identifies dedicated AWS Health industry specialists, AWS Professional Services teams, and leading AWS partners in each solution area.

The healthcare industry is facing an explosion in unstructured and business data resulting from advances in healthcare imaging, regulatory requirements, and research. Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) images, digital scans, videos, customer documentation and research records require storage solutions that combine security, access and long-term retention in one affordable solution. In addition to these requirements, institutions are increasingly looking for ways to exchange data securely and in accordance with the rules across multiple parties in order to improve efficiency and insight. AWS for Health and Nasuni's cloud file storage are helping healthcare organizations achieve significant cost savings by eliminating the legacy Network Attached Storage (NAS) and file backup infrastructure while using a cloud-based solution for improved data protection and consolidation.

Nasuni offers scalable, affordable and secure cloud file storage on AWS that enables institutions to consolidate their data in the cloud and still access their data locally at high speeds. With Nasuni and AWS, customers can easily build solutions that enable them to remain HIPAA compliant and reduce their data backup and storage costs by up to 70%.

With its immutable file system and patented fast recovery function, Nasuni offers built-in fast recovery from ransomware, as well as long-term backups and disaster recovery. With its ability to retain files for long periods of time and access unlimited versions, it provides a powerful platform for sharing and storing research results.

With the Nasuni Analytics Connector, health organizations can use AWS Lambda, the serverless computing service, to create workload-sensitive cluster scaling logic and gain analysis from their data.

"Healthcare organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud for low-cost storage of large files and medical data and an effective means of recovering from ransomware attacks," said Will Hornkohl, vice president of alliances at Nasuni. "The AWS for Health initiative makes it easy for medical researchers, clinicians, and healthcare organizations to acquire the scalability and agility they need for their digital transformation."
