Global Cloud File System

Panzura Global Cloud File System

Panzura’s global cloud file system transforms cloud storage into high-performance enterprise file systems by giving distributed teams rapid, secure file access to a single, authoritative data source. Say goodbye to NAS storage for every office – by delivering one file system across hundreds of offices, Panzura CloudFS™ allows users to work together as if they were in the same room. 

Panzura solves the specific challenges that Buildings & Infrastructure and Product Design & Engineering firms face when using a distributed workforce to collaborate using applications like Revit, AutoCAD and Civil 3D.

Benefits of Panzura

Fast File Performance

With Panzura, even the largest files typically open in under 10 seconds, from any location across your entire global cloud network. That’s because Panzura stores files as a single source of truth in the cloud while making cached versions available on local filers. This hybrid cloud approach leverages local processing power to deliver a legacy NAS experience.

Global Collaboration Without Versioning

Panzura’s unique real time file locking capability enforces a global file lock, where the entire file can only be edited by one user at a time. And, where applications like Revit and AutoCAD support it, byte-range locking means just the file elements currently being edited are locked, allowing your global teams to work collaboratively.

Productivity And Economy

Panzura's patented technology leverages the speed of local flash storage to deliver real time file responses. Minimise bandwidth demands and time to sync by transmitting only altered portions of files simultaneously to the cloud and to every local filer. As a result, even the largest files are updated in near real time.

Reduced Infrastructure Costs

Panzura consolidates unstructured data storage, archive, backup, and disaster recovery in the cloud. Given the infrastructure demands for traditional NAS to accommodate files and backups for Buildings & Infrastructure and Product Design & Engineering Industries firms, switching to Panzura and cloud storage can result in savings of up to 70%. 

Limitless Scalability

Panzura’s simultaneous bursting data sync provides near real time updates across your entire organisation. Every 60 seconds, every site is synced to the cloud, and to each other, at the same time.  Whether you have 5 sites or 500, each site always has an up-to-the-minute version of every file.

Military Grade Security

Panzura guards your intellectual property using the toughest security measures available. The global cloud file solution is protected by AES-256 CBC on the Panzura filer and dual encrypted with TLS 1.2 while your data is in transit between the local filer and your cloud storage. 

Accessible From Anywhere

Panzura's natively integrated enterprise file sync and share provides seamless access to your cloud data with enterprise-level security, even when you can’t be in the office.
