Panzura was founded in 2008 by a core team of engineers with a decade-long track record of developing successful enterprise infrastructure technology products. Our technical team also includes top talent from Sun, NetApp, Data Domain, Riverbed, Veritas and other pioneering IT companies.
The Panzura vision is deceptively simple to articulate – deliver cloud-integrated local NAS capabilities to a globally-distributed enterprise, allowing storage capacity to be centrally located, managed, and protected. As storage capacity needs explode and projects and workflows become shared across multiple sites, enterprises are searching for a storage solution that allows workers to share workloads at LAN-like speed while keeping storage and networking costs minimized. Those two needs have been mutually exclusive with traditional storage technologies.
Until now. The Panzura Freedom NAS leverages high-performance, secure Internet technology to create an interconnected, unified global file system. With Panzura, persistent data can be centrally located where it is easy for IT to manage, yet remain fluid and easy to access, regardless of physical location. Storage islands disappear, capacity and data protection costs go down, system management is simplified, and users share workflows as needed as if they were local.
