Nasuni, a leading hybrid cloud storage solution, today announced a strategic partnership with Cegal, a global leader of digital solutions for the energy industry. Together, Nasuni and Cegal are helping organizations to accelerate their cloud transformations by providing the technology infrastructure and expertise needed to manage and protect data at scale, from any location. Nasuni has also announced strong momentum in the industry with a 235% increase in data managed for enterprise energy customers year over year.
Organizations including Fugro, Geoactive, Ithaca Energy, and ENGIE are replacing legacy file storage and enhancing data protection with the Nasuni File Data Platform to store, rapidly access, and protect files across remote locations.
Nasuni's key partnership with Cegal is further driving its momentum in the energy sector. Cegal has global expertise in the market and an established track record of helping organizations with challenging IT transformations. Together, Nasuni and Cegal are enabling global operators, like Petronas, Neptune Energy, and BW Energy, to transition to a cloud-based data platform delivering strategic benefits specific to the energy industry:
- Fast file access from anywhere: Proven, rapid access to data globally reduces seismic interpretation times, diminishing disruption caused by sharing files across limited networks and enabling resources to reside anywhere in the world.
- Complete cyber resiliency: Industry-first ransomware detection at the edge, mitigating attacks and enabling instant recovery of data even at petabyte scale, delivering business continuity when ransomware hits.
- Facilitating hybrid-cloud infrastructure: Providing the ability to share workloads and ensuring data portability between cloud and SaaS platforms (such as OSDU), for increased flexibility and cost savings.
With a distributed workforce in offices, facilities, and remote sites across the globe, fast and reliable file access is essential to the energy sector, as increasingly complex cloud transformations and record-high cyberattacks on infrastructure put further strain on the industry.
"We are delighted with the exponential growth we have seen in Nasuni's energy business. We are seeing again and again that Nasuni's architectural differentiators enable energy customers to achieve their strategic outcomes in a way that other technologies cannot," said David Grant, President at Nasuni. "Energy companies need proven enterprise platforms that they can trust to deliver the scale and flexibility their huge energy data sets demand. Cegal is a key partner for us in this space; the Nasuni File Data Platform fits seamlessly into Cegal's existing portfolio, extending our global reach and enabling us to continue our exponential growth."
"Combining Cegal's global reach and expertise in the energy sector with the Nasuni File Data Platform enables our customers to supercharge cloud transformations with cost-effective, high-performance and flexible services. Nasuni embodies what we look for in a partner: They are focused, skilled and actively engaged and leverage our market-specific knowledge in our joint go-to-market activities," said Kersti Ekeland Bjurstrøm, Chief Product Officer at Cegal.
