CloudFS™ - the Global Cloud File System Replacing Legacy Storage
Panzura CloudFS™ is a global cloud file system built from the ground up to power enterprise-scale deployments in the cloud, and allow distributed teams to work collaboratively. CloudFS goes beyond hybrid cloud file storage to offer a global cloud file solution that delivers unprecedented cloud performance and scale, with exceptional operational efficiencies.
A Complete Cloud File Solution For Enterprise
Moving to the cloud is supposed to solve your data growth problems by allowing your storage to scale limitlessly and cost effectively – without changing the way you work.
But, the more distance you put between your people and your cloud storage, the longer it takes to open, lock, save and close files. It’s not your lack of bandwidth that slows you down but latency caused by distance between your users and the files they’re working on.
Panzura CloudFS Brings Your Cloud Files Closer
Our intelligent hybrid cloud approach stores data as a single authoritative data source in the cloud, while caching the most frequently used files on edge appliances called filers (or Panzuras), at each of your locations or in cloud regions. That means files open so fast it seems like they’re already on your desktop. Here’s how it works.
Engineered To Optimize Performance And Speed
Automated Distributed File Locking
Our simultaneous hub-and-spoke and peer-to-peer model means that the cloud and every local filer always knows who owns the file lock. The instant a file is opened, it’s locked to every other user in your network. And, we provide the capability to enforce the lock at the file and byte level.
This means that your people can work on the same datasets or even the same file at the same time, if the application supports it, from different locations without any fear of overwriting or creating versions.
Instant Data Consistency Across Your Entire Cloud Network
Every 60 seconds, every local filer simultaneously synchronizes with your cloud object store, which is the single source of truth.
Within that 60 second window, if you need to access a file that hasn’t yet been updated by the cloud object store, a peer to peer connection synchronizes – from the local filer that owns the file – any additional data required to make that file an exact match.
From the ground up, Panzura is designed to provide an extensible long term cloud file storage solution that actively drives productivity.
Not only are we priced to achieve enormous savings over traditional NAS storage, Panzura drives exceptional economies in bandwidth usage and overall storage requirements.
Accessible From Anywhere
Natively integrated enterprise file sync and share provides seamless access to your cloud data with enterprise-level security, even when you can’t be in the office.
