Nirvanix Powers NASA Mission
San Diego-based Nirvanix, a provider of cloud-based storage services, announced this morning that the firm has scored a win as part of a NASA mission, to store a copy of all of the data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) in its services. According to Nirvanix, its CloudNAS network attacked storage gateway is being used by NASA to store a copy of all of the data which will be acquired by the LRO. Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. Nirvanix said that its cloud-based NAS product will be used to replicate data from a project team as Arizona State University, allowing the project managers at ASU to worry about other issues aside from offsite storage.
