Cross-Site Collaboration

Empower a Globally Distributed Workforce to Collaborate in Real-Time. Customers need the ability to work across the globe as One Collaborative Team accessing a single data repository using applications such as CAD/CAM, Revit etc. within the organization regardless of location or time zone. IT teams are tasked with enabling a globally dispersed workforce to work in Real-Time​

The Challenges with Collaboration

Global Workforce

Users were once located in a central office and could take advantage of legacy NAS data sharing. Today, those users are spread across the globe. As projects come on-line, bringing talent into corporate or regional offices can be a challenging and expensive process

Local, Not Distributed NAS

Legacy NAS infrastructure adds to the problem. Easily able to share data locally, legacy NAS cannot effectively share large data sets across distance. The time required to transmit data across distance can make file sharing slow or even impossible

Simultaneous File Access

As files have grown increasingly large and complex, the ability to access and edit different portions of a single file by multiple users at the same time has become common. Consistent, global file locking is required; versioning leads to data corruption

Real-Time Matters

Panzura Freedom Collaboration™ solves these challenges by consolidating 100% of unstructured data in the cloud and providing real-time global file and byte-range locking with immediate consistency. Users distributed across the world gain the ability to work on the same files simultaneously.

Global File Locking

When local users try to open a file that is in use, they receive a file lock message and an option to open the file as read only. Panzura Global File Locking extends this functionality to any user, anywhere

Byte-Range Locking

Modern applications that use large files can support byte-range locking. This features allows users to check out part of a file while other users work on a different part of the same file

Immediate Consistency

Only Panzura supports real time data consistency on a global basis. Unique, patented technology enables Panzura to provide immediate data consistency to every user in every location
