Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Jerry Schwartz | September 27, 2013 9:44 am

You face a difficult decision in coming days – the press has reported that Nirvanix, your cloud storage provider, is closing its cloud services and you must decide where to take your data.

There’s no joy in seeing a provider like Nirvanix encounter tough times. Nirvanix customers, meanwhile, have a deadline of October 15 to remove data from Nirvanix’s platform.

If you’re a Nirvanix customer, you can take advantage of free data migration to Rackspace Cloud Files and also receive the first month of Cloud Files storage at no charge (up to $1,500).
