Panzura CloudFS

First Enterprise File System Purpose-Built for the Cloud

Panzura CloudFS™ is the industry’s first enterprise file system purpose-built for the cloud. It was architected to meet the most demanding enterprise requirements and leads the industry in innovation and adoption.

Multi-Cloud Data Management for the Enterprise

Panzura CloudFS, a seventh generation file system, was focused from the beginning on 6 key design tenets. The result? The perfect multi-cloud data management solution for the enterprise. Legacy storage providers are trying to reinvent themselves to address multi-cloud computing environments. However, bolt-on technology has never provided a best-in-class solution.

How Does Panzura CloudFS Work? Like a Distributed Scale-Out NAS, Modernized for the Cloud.

Panzura CloudFS is a scale-out, distributed file system purpose-built for the cloud. Programmatically accessible through REST APIs, it utilizes high performance flash in the data center, and integrates the cloud for economics, scalability, and durability. Unlike NAS, it scales globally across multiple sites and multiple clouds.

How Panzura CloudFS Works

Panzura Freedom Filers at each site connect to each other and to a master data source.

Frequently used files are cached at each office for fast access.

Files are kept constantly synchronized across all sites.

Users can access the same file at the same time, even if they’re thousands of miles apart.

The master copy is kept synchronized with the public or private cloud provider of your choice.

Byte-range global locking technology protects files from being accidentally overwritten.

Global namespace helps maintain data consistency and integrity across all sites.

Locking and metadata allow the global namespace to present a single volume to all sites.
