Cloud storage upstart boasts of swollen biz, hires the CFO who sold Archivas
Looking to go to IPO, Nasuni?
Comment Cloud storage gateway startup Nasuni reports that it experienced 300 per cent growth in 2014* and has just recruited a CFO who helped sell the founder's previous company – Archivas – to HDS for $127m in 2007.
Nasuni has recruited Scott Dussault to be its combined CFO and COO, saying he's experienced at scaling a company for fast growth. Dussault previously worked with Nasuni's founders, CEO Andres Rodriguez and president Bob Mason, at Archivas. Mason and Rodriguez founded Nasuni in 2009 and raised $53m in four funding rounds.
Nasuni claims that in 2014 it had:
- Nearly 300 per cent bookings growth
- Almost 250 per cent increase in data under management
- Customer deployments in 36 countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas
What we might envisage, if we had to bet, would be another funding round this year of $20m to $30m, and even a possible IPO or acquisition in 2016 at a $500m valuation. That's only a guess, though. ®
