Active Archive, Cloud Backup & DR
Reduce Storage Footprint, Eliminate Tape, Gain Scale, Simplify Management
Enterprises are increasingly finding the need to extract and analyze archived data. Compliance regulations have made data accessibility and retention a business requirement.
Challenge: Each office had a different island of data. Needed help with extensive file growth, move beyond back up and collaborate across multiple offices
Trigger: Windows file servers running out of space. File transfer needed many man hours. Needed system with Object Storage. Capacity management issues. Backups weren’t finishing on time
Solution: Panzura Freedom
Benefit: Collaboration has increased, efficient and easy. Can scale out with ease as the company grows. No more problems with backups not finishing on time
The Challenge with Traditional Data Archiving
Traditional data archiving moves inactive data to a lower cost medium. While that sounds like a good way to save money on high cost storage, there are many problems with it
Traditional archive adds management and infrastructure complexity. And when used across multiple locations, that complexity grows
As multiple redundant or similar files are archived, the archive can suffer from storage bloat. The rate of unstructured storage growth compounds this
When an enterprise needs to extract data from the archive, it can be a slow, difficult process. This is particularly true of data stored off site on tape or other media
Active Archiving in the Cloud
Panzura Freedom Archive™ keeps 100% of data available, while intelligently moving cold data to less expensive storage. Traditional archive uses a complex and expensive system of data tiering hardware and software to achieve this. Panzura solves this by consolidating archive data in the cloud, where it is affordable, permanently available, and protected by cloud durability.
Freedom Archive Delivers Value to Your Enterprise
Reduce Storage Footprint
Data is deduplicated and compressed before it is sent to the cloud, reducing the total footprint and associated storage costs
Gain Cloud Scale
Purchase cloud capacity as it is needed and scale on-demand. Cloud storage can easily scale to meet the needs of any organization
Eliminate Tape Backup
Archiving data directly to the cloud means that organizations never have to send tapes offsite again
Tape management is simplified as archive data is consolidated in the cloud. Fast metadata access means data recovery is quick and easy.
With Panzura Freedom Archive, Chevron saw immediate results such as unlimited storage, faster database dumps to the cloud, consolidation of data, and multi-million dollars of savings a year.
The organization needed to find a storage solution that would provide solid performance for end users, support data growth, and meet HIPAA security requirements – all at an effective price
