Freedom Archive™

Panzura CloudFS - Freedom Archive

Single site solution to eliminate backup and archive, replace local NAS, or manage large data sets such as genomic and seismic data

Panzura Freedom NAS

Replace legacy NAS and consolidate data across any number of sites to modernize the data center while achieving local all flash performance

Panzura Freedom Collaboration

Replace islands of storage, eliminate the impact of latency, and empower global users to collaborate in real-time

Local Performance in the Cloud

Panzura Freedom Archive replaces expensive single site NAS systems with an intelligent hybrid cloud storage platform that combines data center performance with the economics, scalability, and durability of the cloud.

Freedom Archive appears to users like a local network drive and can consolidate 100% of your unstructured data storage, backup, and archive infrastructure with a more resilient, automated solution that is fully backed by the cloud.

Freedom to Choose

Panzura Freedom™ provides the freedom to choose the public or private cloud provider of your choice, as well as your deployment model. Deploy Freedom Archive on a Freedom Filer, as a virtual machine (VM) on your existing infrastructure, or as an in-cloud instance. Mobile EFSS enables users to access data from any location using any device.

Enterprise Cloud Data Protection

Panzura Freedom is FIPS 140-2 compliant and uses AES-256 bit encryption to protect your files on-site, in flight, and at rest. The authoritative copy of all of your files is stored in the cloud, which can offer up to 13 9s of durability.

Panzura Freedom combines cloud durability with enterprise-class snapshots, providing immediate point in time recovery from a full file system down to an individual file. You will save time and money by eliminating tape, local backups, and offsite replication.

Comprehensive Automated Management

Panzura Freedom uses an intuitive GUI that leverages powerful wizards to make setup and management fast and easy. Advanced notifications always keep you up to date. A REST API offers complete programmability to any task.

Minimize Cloud Storage and Bandwidth Costs

Data is deduplicated and compressed before it’s sent to the cloud, so each unique block is only sent once and stored once, minimizing both cloud storage and bandwidth costs.

The result? Panzura customers typically spend less on a month of cloud storage than they do on a week of tape backups.
