Panzura Global Cloud File System

Panzura’s global cloud file system transforms cloud storage into a high-performance enterprise file system by giving distributed teams rapid, secure file access to a single, authoritative data source. No more localized NAS storage for every office – by delivering one file system across hundreds of locations, Panzura CloudFS™ allows users to work together as if they were in the same room.

Designed for Productivity. Built for Resilience.

When you all worked in one office, everything was fast. Files opened immediately. If someone was editing a file, anyone else trying to open it was told it was locked, so they couldn't overwrite changes. As soon as someone saved a change, everyone else could see it. Now, you can get that single office experience everywhere.

Designed for productivity and engineered for speed working with even the most complex file types, Panzura uses wicked smart technology to gives you a global cloud file system with a single global namespace, scalable multi-site deployment, and immediate global data consistency across private, public, and dark clouds.

The Fastest Global File System on the Planet

CloudFS lets you store file data in one place — in cloud storage, or on-premises — and make it available everywhere, in real time. Every user gets the same file view and nobody needs to wait for file updates, even for large and complex files. Instead, CloudFS makes it feel like everyone's working in the same office, sitting right next to each other.

Now, you can consolidate your file data into a single, de-duplicated, compressed and encrypted data set, saving on storage space and storage costs.

You can deliver files to your users, wherever they are, so they can maximize their productivity. And, they can trust they're seeing file data that's immediately up to date.

Vitally, you gain ransomware immunity with immutable data and a sub-60 second recovery point objective, so you can rapidly shrug off ransomware attacks and other data damage, without risking data loss.

Local NAS Experience. Hybrid Cloud File Execution.

Panzura’s global cloud file system acts just like an enterprise NAS, and looks like a standard Windows file share to your applications and users. But, unlike traditional NAS or SAN infrastructure, it’s designed to span multiple offices regionally, nationally, and around the globe.

Built from the ground up to power enterprise-scale cloud deployments, every component is designed to deliver a high performance environment where nothing stands in the way of your people doing what they do best – all of the time, no matter where they are.

One Authoritative Data Source

Panzura CloudFS stores your data as the authoritative data source in the cloud. Local nodes at each site connect to the cloud and to every other local node in your network. This hub, spoke and mesh architecture is critical to providing realtime data integrity across your entire cloud file system.

Distributed File Locking That Always Works

As soon as a user opens a file in your cloud network, it’s locked for editing. If another user tries to open it, they’re told that the file is already in use and are given the option to open a read-only copy, or to be notified when the file is available for editing. No overwriting, no file versions.

Intelligent Caching For Local Performance

Frequently used files are cached on Panzura filers at each location for low latency access. Files are de-duplicated at the edge and only updates are sent to the cloud - rather than transmitting the entire file any time it changes - to minimize your egress charges and bandwidth demands.

Byte Range Locking for Cross-Site Collaboration

Panzura CloudFS allows globally distributed teams to collaborate on Revit, Civil 3D and other CAD and CAM files in real time, across multiple locations, by locking just the file portion that's being edited. It's next-level productivity for manufacturing, architecture, engineering and construction firms.

Scalable Simultaneous Bursting Sync

Every 60 seconds, Panzura syncs changed data from every node to the cloud - and to every other local node - in a simultaneous bursting sync. Immediate data updates are processed between local node. Whether you have 5 sites or 500, every user always has an up-to-the-moment view of every file.

Enterprise File Sync and Share

Panzura Edge™ gives your remote users seamless access to the data in your cloud file network, while maintaining enterprise-level security and complete IT control. Natively integrated with Panzura CloudFS, it eliminates the need for third-party enterprise file sync and share applications.
