Panzura Global Cloud File System

Panzura's global cloud file system CloudFS transforms cloud storage into high-performance, high intelligence data management environment by giving distributed teams rapid, secure file access to a single, authoritative data source. By delivering a single file system across hundreds of offices, CloudFS™ allows users to work together as if they were in the same room.

When you all work in one office using network-attached storage, everything is fast. Files open immediately. If someone is working on a file, anyone else trying to open it is told it's locked for editing. As soon as someone saves a change, everyone else can see it. Now, you can get that single office experience everywhere.

Designed for productivity and engineered for speed, Panzura uses wicked smart technology to give 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.

One Authoritative Data Source

Panzura CloudFS stores your data as the authoritative data source in the cloud. Edge appliances at each location connect to the cloud, and to every other location in your network. This hub, spoke and mesh architecture provides realtime data integrity across your entire cloud file system.

Intelligent Caching For Local Performance

Frequently used files are cached 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

Panzura is the only hybrid-cloud data management platform with immediate data consistency. Panzura syncs changed data from every location to the object store - and to every other location - simultaneously. Data updates required before the sync completes are processed peer-to-peer.

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

CloudFS allows globally distributed teams to work on applications that support byte or element locking, in real time, across multiple locations. It's next-level productivity for media, entertainment, 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.

Local NAS Experience. Cloud NAS 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. Better yet, CloudFS consolidates unstructured data from all locations, after deduplicating and compressing it to achieve a reduction in storage footprint of up to 70%.

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.
