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
When users are in a central office, legacy NAS data sharing works seamlessly. Now, those users are spread across the globe (and probably working from home). Giving your best people the tools they need to operate as if they’re still in the same office seems unrealistic.
Integrating with Existing Security Systems
Legacy NAS infrastructure adds to the problem. Easily able to share data locally, legacy NAS cannot effectively share large data sets across locations. The time required to transmit data across distance can make file sharing slow or even impossible.
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.
