Do you live in a region on the Gulf or East Coast that is prone to getting hit by hurricanes? If so, have we got a deal for you.
Nasuni, a company that specializes in cloud-based file storage, is offering a free 3-month trial (as opposed to the standard 14-day trial) to customers in a region at risk of being hit by a hurricane. Eligible customers/businesses must reside in one of the following states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Texas. Nasuni's file storage solution is unlimited and available at a flat rate of $3,000/year. (To compare the cost to competing providers, visit the cost calculator on Nasuni's website.)
So what's the deal? Does Nasuni have a heightened sensitivity for hurricane survivors, an environmental conscience for the growing threats we've seen over the last decade? Not likely. I'd assume, rather, that the hurricane focus is a subtle way of saying that cloud-based storage, in addition to being a hands-off, set-and-forget option, provides added peace of mind against physical threats such as natural disasters.)
