Nirvanix understands that your data sets vary in size and that data throughput and latency requirements differ based on use. That is why we offer several interface methods that help you optimize the performance and migration of large data sets.
Nirvanix CloudNAS is a fast, secure, and easy way to capture the full benefits of enterprise cloud storage. Simply install Nirvanix CloudNAS to turn any server on your network into a gateway to the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network without programming or developing to an API.
Once installed, CloudNAS can be mounted as you would any storage device on your network. This means you can mount CloudNAS from your existing software and processes and gain access to virtually unlimited storage.
Nirvanix CloudNAS is the world's first software-only NAS solution accessible via CIFS, NFS, or FTP. It offers enhanced secure data transfers to any of Nirvanix's globally distributed storage nodes using integrated AES 256-bit encryption and SSL options.
The Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network can be accessed via the Nirvanix Web Services API, a standards-based API accessible via SOAP or REST protocols over HTTP or HTTPS. The Nirvanix CloudNAS utilizes the API.
In the Nirvanix Developer Center, you can access a full library of sample and reference code for every major programming language. You can quickly and easily get information on best practices from the Nirvanix development community or the Nirvanix solutions support team.
Related calls or methods are grouped into logical namespaces offering integrated, robust functionality that significantly reduces your development time.
For most customers, the primary method of accessing the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network™ is over the public Internet but Nirvanix also offers dedicated lines and White Glove Data Transfer™ for storing and accessing large data sets or rapid data delivery for disaster recovery purposes.
You can access the Cloud Storage Network using your existing Internet connection and CloudNAS®, the Nirvanix Web Services API or a Nirvanix partner application. The amount of data you will be able to store and access per day is largely dependant on your available bandwidth. Nirvanix Solutions Engineers will work with you to optimize throughput based upon your requirements.
Accessing the Cloud Storage Network through a dedicated line is similar to connecting over the public Internet however your throughput is consistent and can be optimized to the maximum potential of the connection chosen. Nirvanix can support dedicated lines from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps. To discuss dedicated line pricing talk to a Nirvanix Solutions Representative.
Sometimes data transfer over the public Internet or a dedicated line doesn't meet tight timelines for moving data to the cloud, corporate retention requirements, or recovery time objectives. These issues are solved with Nirvanix White Glove Transfer. Data is transferred to storage servers via GigE connections and then sent to or from Nirvanix via a storage courier service. This method bypasses the Internet and is ideal for importing large amounts of archived data or for quickly accessing data for disaster recovery purposes.
