Work smarter, not harder.

When you work with one globally-accessible data set,  you’re optimizing everything for maximum performance and productivity at any scale. Storage, analytics, disaster recovery, security, your workforce's sanity. Everything.

  • Distributed Data Consolidation / makes data accessible and durable without making copies, for as little as 1/3 the total cost of legacy storage
  • Cloud Block Store Parallel Storage / Delivers cloud-native, auto-scaling storage for systems with workloads that require extremely large and potentially temporary cache
  • Hybrid Cloud NAS / Leverages the cloud for the single source of truth while ensuring secure, global access throughout the enterprise

INCREASE SECURITY

We set the security bar high — and then rise above it. Far above.

CloudFS meets even the most exacting requirements for data availability, usability, security, and compliance at scale.

  • Security & Compliance / Incorporates FIPS 140-2 certified and 256-bit military-grade encryption, secure erase, and other important security features.
  • Immutable Data Protection / Attacks don’t damage files in the Panzura global file system. The system quickly reverts back to previous file versions via immutable data captured by snapshots.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

Panzura users don’t have any boundaries.

CloudFS doesn’t care how big your organization is, how many sites you have, or where your team works. Everyone can access the same data in real-time, accelerating organizational productivity and elevating business performance.

  • Cross-Site Collaboration / Collaborate in real time with other users around the globe at near zero latency.
  • Cloud Mirroring / Mirror entire cloud file data to a completely separate cloud, writing to both at the same time for a fail-safe data operation.
  • Global File Distribution / Rapidly distributes files through a global namespace, leveraging local caching services for performance that’s second to none.

Increased Flexibility We're Cloud-Native To The Core.

Choose from a wide variety of object stores. CloudFS software works seamlessly with whatever object store you prefer, delivering peerless performance in the process.

This means your data is exactly where you need it when you need it. You never have to make copies, so you can quickly and easily harness any cloud-native machine learning, artificial intelligence, or document imaging tools to turn your data into game-changing business outcomes.

Ransomware Protection Infected doesn’t mean affected.

CloudFS makes data impervious to ransomware and other damage by storing it in an immutable form, and further protecting it with read-only snapshots.

These snapshots provide the granular point-in-time ability to recover individual files, folders, or even the entire file system in minutes, without losing data. Ever. Therefore an attack doesn’t result in any significant downtime or loss of productivity.
