Cloud Migration Simplified

Enterprise cloud migration is challenged by three significant problems that are both expensive and time-consuming to overcome. 

Challenges with Cloud Migration

Rewrite of Existing Applications

Migrating applications to cloud compute platforms (AWS, Azure, Google, IBM Cloud) or private modern clouds based on object storage requires that the applications be rewritten to store data in an object store through a RESTful API.

Lack of sufficient file services for cloud hinders app, file, and data mapping to cloud architecture.

Data Locality for Apps and Users

Cloud migration requires exhaustive planning to ensure data locality.

It is a time intensive process where data needs to be fully synced prior to shifting from on-prem to in-cloud.

This forces enterprises into an all-or-nothing move to the cloud vs making a gradual shift per workflow.

Changes to Proven Workflows

Moving applications from on-prem to in-cloud architectures can adversely affect the  workflows that power the business.  

Cloud migration changes how data is collected, analyzed, and consumed.

This encourages migration of apps and workflows based on least impact vs business needs.

Panzura Makes Cloud Migrations Easy

Enterprise NAS in the Cloud

Panzura’s enterprise NAS functionality consolidates data in the cloud while providing a unified access layer for both in-cloud and on-prem global access.

File access is supported for both NFS v3/v4 and SMB v1/v2/v3 protocols.

Line rate performance from 1Gbps to 20Gbps is available to both users and applications. Filers can be deployed within a single cloud or a multi-cloud environment.

Integrating with Existing Security Systems

Panzura is FIPS-140-2 and HIPAA certified. Freedom filers integrate with existing Active Directory (AD) and Kerberos environments. All data is fully encrypted both in flight and at rest using customer supplied certificates. Encryption certificates can be managed with customer KMIP services or directly on the Freedom filers, allowing businesses to independently encrypt their data without having to trust the cloud provider itself.

Purpose-Built for the Cloud

Unlike legacy NAS solutions where cloud is an afterthought, Panzura was architected from the ground up for the cloud with its distributed CloudFS file system. All data stored on the Freedom filer is immediately synced and consolidated into the cloud while providing fast access both in-cloud and on-prem. With numerous patents granted around its cloud file system, Panzura makes the adoption of cloud technology seamless, performant, and simple.
