If you thought you knew Panzura, think again.

Everything’s changed at Panzura … and we do mean everything. From our leadership to our solution, we’re bigger, better, faster, and smarter than ever.

01/ Built for the Cloud We started a revolution.

In 2008, just two years after Amazon invented the cloud, Panzura created a practical hybrid cloud model that made that cloud an accessible reality for enterprise customers around the world — and caught the attention of Silicon Valley.

Investment and expansion came thick and fast. Fuelled by groundbreaking innovation and patented technology (35 patents and counting), Panzura challenged the status quo of traditional NAS systems and redefined an entire industry.

02/ A Bold, New Beginning In 2019, Panzura asked two visionaries to provide a growth strategy. They took things a step further.

Panzura’s technology was powerful — but hard to explain to customers. Some viewed this as a challenge. Jill Stelfox and Dan Waldschmidt saw it as an opportunity. Instead of offering advice, they decided to buy the company.

After listening to customers share their pain points, Jill and Dan recognized that Panzura was uniquely positioned to give enterprise companies unrivaled security, visibility, and control of their stored data — a value proposition far beyond anything the competition could offer.

Leveraging Jill’s experience as a successful startup entrepreneur and a senior leader in a multi-billion dollar corporation, the team executed a strategic plan to refinance, refocus, and refound Panzura with a clear vision and mission — and most importantly, a new culture based on a core set of values.

03/ We’re Just Getting Started Our refounding story is still being written, but the initial results are strong.
