Pour $25m in its coffers and the local NAS box gets it. That's backers' hope for public cloud type Nasuni

The storage company's pitch is that a fast access local cache with public cloud back-end object storage can provide local NAS access speed, the immense scalability that local boxes can't deliver

But isin't the entire point of having a NAS box onsite that it's free once for the decade or two after you've bought it?

as well as cloud economics.

Ah. I see why this is a think. So instead of buying a product that you can run until a part dies, you can move to renting it offsite perpetually, initially for a knock down price which is then stepped up considerably as time goes by.
