Integrated Snapshots, Backup, and Disaster Recovery
There’s a common misperception that cloud storage is just for backup and disaster recovery (DR). With Panzura, the cloud becomes your primary file storage, and also provides integrated backup, DR, archiving, and point-in-time file retrieval with snapshots at the file system to the individual file level. Everything is protected in the cloud, with redundancy architected into Panzura solutions.
Eliminate Costly Replication Processes
Enterprises that use 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.
Panzura Freedom eliminates this by consolidating 100% of unstructured data in the cloud. Every Freedom Filer 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.
Unique 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
Configurable retention policies let you keep snapshots as long as you need them.
No I/O impact
Snapshots are done using redirect on write, which means there’s no I/O impact since data blocks are never overwritten with new snapshots.
Near Instant Ransomware Recovery
Ransomware and other cyberattacks are a constant threat. For enterprises, becoming a victim of one of these threats has become a matter of when, not if — so they need to be prepared. Panzura Freedom gets enterprises back to normal state quickly, efficiently, and effectively.
Granular snapshot recovery
Panzura global snapshot technology can restore anything from a full file system down to the level of a single file.
Because every Panzura Filer stores the metadata for the entire file system locally, restoration can be done from the metadata.
