Snapshots, Backup, and Disaster Recovery.
CloudFS provides integrated backup, disaster recovery, archiving, and point-in-time file retrieval in the form of immutable data, further protected by read-only snapshots taken at the file system level and at the individual file level.
Simplify Costly Backup and Restore Processes
Enterprises using legacy NAS will often replicate data from one NAS device to a second local NAS device for high availability. They may then replicate the data again to a third remote NAS device for disaster recovery. The replicated data is typically read-only and, in the event it is needed, will require a recovery process.
CloudFS eliminates this by consolidating 100% of your unstructured data in the cloud. Every location has read access to the entire data set so there is no need for replication software or redundant storage.
Enterprise Cloud Data Protection
Cloud providers automatically create redundant copies of data across different data centers and geographies as part of architecting system durability into their service. Offering 13 9s or greater durability, cloud providers offer data protection beyond what individual enterprises could affordably achieve themselves. Panzura leverages these capabilities to provide enterprise customers a single authoritative data set to optimize backup, recovery, archive and DR workflows.
Global Snapshot Technology
Panzura CloudFS™ protects data with space-efficient, enterprise-class snapshots that never impact performance and store any number of snapshots to meet any retention policy. Achieve a near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) with the ability to immediately restore data from an entire file system down to an individual file.
Snapshots can be taken on a user-defined schedule, as frequently as every second.
Configurable retention policies let you keep snapshots as long as you need them.
Snapshots are done using redirect on write, which means there’s no I/O impact since data blocks are never overwritten with new snapshots.
