The Nasuni service: Getting Started


Nasuni provides managed storage service that offers interesting functionality in the cloud integrated storage space. To get started with the Nasuni service you can sign up for a 14 day free trial. Once approved, you’ll get an email with links for the bits and credentials to access and use the Nasuni service.

One easy way to start and try the service is to use virtual filer(s). I will install 2 Nasuni filers and 1 Nasuni Management Console VM on Windows Hyper-V 2012 R2 in 2 sites in this demo.

After downloading the filer-hyperv-6.1.1-99.zip file for example, unzip it:

You will need about 17 GB disk space to unzip this file. Under the “Virtual Hard Disks” folder is the Filer.vhd file that will be used by the Install-Nasuni-HyperV.ps1 script that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Script Center Repository.
