20 Odd Tech Startup Names And The Real Stories Behind Them


Nasuni

CEO: Andres Rodriguez

Headquarters: Natick, Mass.

Nasuni President Rob Mason and CEO Andres Rodriguez, both co-founders of the company, considered a lot of names when they founded the cloud storage startup in 2009, including CloudCover, PasadaDrive and StorGuard. They eventually chose "Nasuni," which is a portmanteau of NAS (network-attached storage) and unity.

Nasuni "represents the combination of the three core attributes of provisioning, protection and portability which we held as central to what we were building," a company spokesperson said in an email.
