When the fastest global cloud file system on the planet meets virtual desktop infrastructure, you get blazing fast performance to the last mile.
Panzura works seamlessly with VDI solutions to allow enterprises to utilize cutting edge cloud desktop technology, while working from a single authoritative data source in the cloud.
Panzura’s global file system delivers fast, collaborative global access to files stored in a single authoritative data source. And, we extend that access far beyond the office, to deliver a high performance experience to remote workers in 2 vital ways.
Forget the traditional remote access into your virtual private network—the one that starts out slow and gets slower as every next person logs on. Panzura gives you fast access everywhere. Panzura + VDI ups the ante to give you access so fast you might as well still be in the office.
Panzura’s CloudFS filers (virtual machines that sit on or near your premises) deliver fast file performance by bridging the gap between your storage and your file processing. But, they don’t need to be in an office to do that.
Instead, Panzura filers can be installed in any of the hundreds of cloud regions available throughout the world. These regions offer high performance, low latency connections that let your people keep working at high speed, just like they were still in the office.
Many modern file applications support byte-range locking, to empower even greater productivity. Instead of locking an entire file, byte-range locking only locks the relevant elements of a file that are in use. Multiple users can then collaborate on a single file, at the same time, without overwriting each other’s work or having to merge edits later.
Panzura supports byte-range locking in modern enterprise applications such as AutoDesk Revit and AutoCAD files, Tekla Structures, Bentley Microstation, and Microsoft Office.
