Nasuni Wants To Give You $5,000

Cloud storage startup Nasuni is so interesting that I've already had lunch with CEO Andres Rodriguez twice. It doesn't hurt that the company is right around the corner from my office. In one of my next posts I'll tell you more about what Nasuni does. The short version is that it delivers an on-premise virtual NAS that packages up data so it can be effectively stored on a number of different cloud platforms. The whole idea behind its NAS Filer is to simplify the storage IT has to manage in the shop by adding an externally-managed cloud tier. And the data is encrypted before it moves to the cloud.

To ease fears about data risks, Nasuni is running a contest. It is hosting a public bucket on Amazon S3 which is entirely encrypted. If you can decrypt the data and discover the secret file, you win five grand! Check it out here.

There's roughly a month left in the contest.

If you are interested in details on the NAS filer, there's a white paper posted here.
