Nasuni’s Growth in the AEC Sector Since 2021 Highlights the Industry’s Accelerated Digital Transformation Strategies and the Need to Protect Critical Data

BOSTON, June 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services, today announced increased demand for the Nasuni File Data Platform from the global AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry. Nasuni is enabling its AEC customers to speed up their digital transformation by modernizing their file storage and protection infrastructure; this ultimately makes data more accessible from the cloud, while providing more effective data protection and unparalleled ransomware recovery capabilities.

Since 2021, Nasuni has grown its AEC customer base helping more than 190 customers in over 4,300 locations (27 countries worldwide) to enhance data management, adopt next-level building information modelling (BIM) tools, and facilitate complex collaborations using global file shares.

The Nasuni File Data Platform gives companies the infinite scale of the cloud, while providing superior edge performance and unrivalled data protection and security through its data file services (including Nasuni Ransomware Protection and Nasuni Access Anywhere). It achieves this by consolidating data silos, providing 24/7 business continuity, optimizing user productivity, delivering enhanced business insights, and offering the ability to choose multiple cloud providers. Hybrid cloud technology delivers critical performance benefits from the edge, enabling organizations to achieve more effective collaboration and sharing on large data sets and files at a regional or global scale.

“The AEC industry’s entire business is dependent on file data and is in the midst of seismic change, with more digital solutions across entire value chains, and innovative data use cases like digital twins, design automation, BIM products, and trialling artificial intelligence (AI)-based knowledge management to remain competitive and take operations to the next level”, said David Grant, President of Nasuni. “These capabilities, underpinned by cloud-based file and object storage, managed by the Nasuni File Data Platform, improve organizations’ competitiveness by optimizing their processes and enabling enhanced collaboration, sharing, and data protection.”

The Nasuni File Data Platform integrates and supports applications like Adobe InDesign, Autodesk Revit, Dassault CATIA CAD, Siemens Teamcenter, and Windows® File Copy. Nasuni’s intelligent edge caching allows AEC firms to leverage the infinite scale of cloud object storage of their choosing while meeting the needs of hybridized work environments and maintaining high performance data accessibility even for local and remote offices.

Research in 2022 indicates that the construction industry is, alongside the education sector, the most likely target of ransomware attacks, making data protection and the ability to instantly recover from attacks without tying up internal resources imperative to maintaining competitive business operations. “The Nasuni-Azure snapshotting approach just works,” said Joe Marando, CIO at global architecture firm, JERDE. “If ransomware hits, you just go back and restore your data from right before the attack, and you get your data back. I love the file recovery functionality with Nasuni.”

Ramboll, a leading AEC firm founded in Denmark, with 16,500 employees in 35 countries and 300 remote offices, partners with clients to create the infrastructure behind sustainable societies. The company was relying on physical and virtual storage systems, backed by NetApp SnapMirror, at many of its global offices. The challenge of maintaining this worldwide infrastructure was significant, yet Nasuni successfully replaced their existing infrastructure with ease.

“We would have to do multiple updates on a weekly basis,” recalls IT Project Manager, Morten Madsen of Ramboll. “[the current system] was not a scalable solution for a company of our size.” Madsen selected the Nasuni File Data Platform to address the company’s storage, backup, and management problems and today, Ramboll trusts more than 3 petabytes (PB) of global file data to be stored, protected, and managed by Nasuni.

APi Group, JERDE, Kimley-Horn, McLaren, Perkins+Will, Ramboll, SMEC (Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation), Voessing, and the Walsh Group have also selected Nasuni to modernize their legacy file infrastructure, gain more value from IT investments, and recover from cyberattacks like ransomware in minutes. To learn more about how Nasuni is enabling the AEC industry to reduce file storage costs, improve collaboration, and enhance resiliency, please visit our customer case studies.

Avalanche Joins Forces with Stripe: Transforming Crypto Purchases Across the US

Published

on

avalanche-joins-forces-with-stripe:-transforming-crypto-purchases-across-the-us

Avalanche, a leading blockchain platform, has partnered with Stripe to enhance the accessibility of its ecosystem. This strategic collaboration integrates Stripe’s fiat-to-crypto onramping capabilities directly into Avalanche’s C-Chain, enabling retail users to purchase the native cryptocurrency, AVAX, without the complexities of traditional crypto exchanges.

Integration and User Experience Enhancement

The integration aims to simplify the process of acquiring AVAX by embedding Stripe’s onramp as a customizable widget within various Avalanche decentralized applications (dApps). These dApps include decentralized exchanges (DEXes), NFT platforms, and digital wallets, facilitating a seamless and streamlined user experience. By leveraging Stripe’s infrastructure, users can easily fund their accounts using various payment methods, including ACH transfers and credit/debit cards.

Core Wallet Integration

A key component of this collaboration is the integration into Core, Avalanche’s native ecosystem wallet developed by Ava Labs. Core wallet users can now directly fund their wallets via the Stripe widget, making it easier to engage with the Avalanche network. The wallet setup process is straightforward, allowing new users to create accounts using Gmail or Apple ID, thereby reducing the barriers to entry into the crypto space.

Addressing Web3 Challenges

This integration addresses several challenges commonly faced in the Web3 ecosystem, such as the “cold start problem,” where users lack initial funds to participate in transactions. Stripe’s onramp handles essential elements like KYC, payments, fraud prevention, and compliance, allowing dApps to focus on enhancing user experience rather than dealing with regulatory complexities.

The initiative is supported by key players in the Avalanche ecosystem, including GoGoPool, Avvy, Pakt, zeroone, Halliday, The Arena, Shrapnel, and DeFi Kingdoms. These partners, offering services from decentralized naming and gaming to financial and social interaction platforms, stand to benefit from the increased ease of access to digital asset transactions.

Promoting Web3 Adoption

The collaboration between Avalanche and Stripe goes beyond simplifying transactions; it also aims to bridge the gap between traditional finance and the emerging Web3 landscape. By integrating a familiar and secure payment system, the partnership ensures that users, both new and existing, can navigate the cryptocurrency ecosystem with greater ease and confidence.

The leadership from both Ava Labs and Stripe has expressed enthusiasm about the partnership. Akash Gupta, Head of Consumer Products at Ava Labs, highlighted the commitment to user-centric solutions and broader adoption of digital currencies. John Egan, Head of Crypto at Stripe, noted that the initiative aligns with Stripe’s mission to democratize access to Web3 technologies, making them safer and more accessible to a global audience.

This strategic partnership is expected to accelerate consumer adoption, deepen user engagement, and reinforce Avalanche’s position as a leader in the blockchain industry.
