Nasuni has added $10 million to its Series C round to expand its data storage software used by large companies.

In a news release, Nasuni chief executive Andres Rodriguez said the Natick-based company has “begun consistently displacing the likes of EMC and NetApp in global accounts.”

The new funding brings the company’s Series C round, initially raised in the fall of 2012, to $30 million. The extension included existing investors Flybridge Capital Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners, and Sigma Partners.

Along with expanding Nasuni’s business, demand from the venture investors was among the reasons for the new extension. “We wanted a bigger share of Nasuni,” Sigma firm managing director Paul Flanagan said in the news release.

Nasuni has now raised $53 million since its founding in 2009.

The company combines cloud storage for data with on-premise hardware as a way to allow companies to more easily scale up their storage.
