Panzura Global Cloud Storage System: Global File Locking

Global File Locking

From our inception, Panzura understood that file locking is critical to delivering local NAS features from globally-distributed storage. Storage companies are discovering that providing an elegant, seamless, and robust globalized cloud storage solution that closely mimics a local NAS user experience is far from trivial, especially if trying to retrofit systems not designed for cloud storage. This paper describes Panzura’s unique ability to provide global storage with local NAS attributes through deep integration of distributed locking into the very fabric of our global file system.
