Panzura CloudFS overcame distance and latency to let the entire company work as if everyone were under one roof.
Data from all locations was deduplicated, and consolidated into a single, global, authoritative data source.
Panzura’s global namespace and distributed global file locking allows their users to work on the same “golden” copy of a file, without worrying about overwriting another designer, or being overwritten.
Real-time Data Updates
Instead of waiting for legacy NAS storage to run its daily data replication and transfer, to make files consistent in every location, users can now see file updates as soon as they’re saved. Even if they were made by a user on the other side of the world.
That has meant teams can stay focussed on their tasks, and get more work done, without running into IT challenges.
Agility and Flexibility
Panzura hasn’t just allowed the company to leverage talent spread across numerous locations, it also gives them the ability to shift the right workforce to the right project at a moment’s notice.
Any office with excess capacity of manpower or a specialized skill can be available to work on a project in another region of the world.
Finding and Auditing Files in Seconds
Finding files, and tracking user actions, can consume thousands of IT hours every year. Now, the company’s IT team can search, audit and monitor files and file activity across the entire organization, from one dashboard, using Panzura Data Services.
Auditing files and folders has given the admins insight to specific users and how they are making edits, as well as spotting abnormalities. Data Services also enables them to search for content within seconds; easily finding and gaining access files from multiple locations and previous versions.
