Panzura CloudFS™

A global file system purpose-built to power enterprise-scale deployments in the cloud. 

Panzura CloudFS™ is a complete enterprise solution for the cloud age. Designed for productivity and engineered for speed, Panzura delivers a Global Cloud File System with single namespace, multi-site deployment, and file standardization across private, public, and hybrid clouds.

NAS in the Cloud

Panzura’s Global Cloud File System looks and 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 filers at each site connect to the cloud and to every other local filer in your network. This hub, spoke and mesh architecture is critical to providing realtime data integrity across your entire cloud file system.

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.

Scalable Simultaneous Bursting Sync

Every 60 seconds, Panzura syncs changed data from every filer to the cloud - and to every other local filer - in a simultaneous bursting sync. Immediate data updates are processed between local filers. Whether you have 5 sites or 5,000, every user always has an up-to-the-moment view of every file.

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.

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 .

Enterprise File Sync and Share

Panzura Mobile™ give 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.
