Panzura Announces Next Generation of Hybrid Cloud Storage Controllers
August 18, 2016

Panzura announced its 5000 series of expandable enterprise hybrid cloud controllers, available immediately.

This new generation of controllers scale from 1000’s of users in a single site to tens of 1000s of users across global offices. Using the Panzura’s patented hybrid cloud storage software, customers can accelerate time to market of multi-billion dollar projects and high value software products by months, reduce on-premise storage costs by millions of dollars, and deliver a future proof hybrid cloud storage architecture. Organizations like Electronic Arts, Milwaukee Tool, National Instruments and the Department of Justice use Panzura for global software development and build delivery, high value asset distribution, cross-site CAD collaboration, hybrid cloud NAS and active archive.

Panzura software, available with the 5000 series, enables globally dispersed employees and machines to work together like they are in the same location. With Panzura, customers can implement distributed continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) environments to move software builds of up to hundreds of gigabytes to multiple sites worldwide in minutes totaling terabytes of builds globally distributed per day. Example projects include developing and distributing game builds globally, architecting skyscrapers and amusement parks using teams from multiple offices, transferring large-scale seismic data to compute farms on different continents and designing power tools collaboratively between teams in different countries.

Additionally, Panzura consolidates tiers of storage into the cloud and removes the need for separate primary storage, back-up, DR, replication, tape, WAN optimization and MPLS. Panzura significantly reduces the capital and operational expense of local enterprise storage with a simple cloud plus cache model. Total costs can be reduced by over 70% and companies can take advantage of cloud compute for new services including analytics, search, index and VDI-as-a-service.

“The antiquated enterprise storage model that exists today in many enterprises is expensive and fragile,” said Patrick Harr, CEO of Panzura. “Our software together with our new 5000 hybrid cloud storage controllers eliminate this storage status quo and replace it with a simple, modern cloud plus intelligent cache model. As a result, customers can significantly reduce their costs by up to 70% and unlock the power of their data.”

“Data growth challenges continue to plague organizations despite the rise of technologies designed to specifically address these challenges. The cumulative impact of years of rapid data growth has led to traditional storage systems becoming unsustainable,” said Scott Sinclair, Senior Analyst, ESG. “Cloud was identified as the number one technology expected to impact on premises storage, but cloud suffers from a latency ‘speed of light challenge.’ Panzura’s Hot Edge/Cold Core approach leverages the cloud for all storage, but caches the hot data on-premises. The new 5000 series now enables that Hot Edge to expand even further.”

The new, expandable Panzura 5000 series controllers include:

- 5500: Large office solution in either all SSD or hybrid configuration expandable within chassis and also with expansion shelf

- 5300: Office solution expandable within chassis and also with expansion shelf

- 5100: Branch-office solution expandable within chassis

- 5000 Expansion Shelf: Provides extra capacity in either SSD or HDD for the 5300 and 5500 Controllers

The 5000 series compute power is three to six times previously shipping models. All platforms are configured for Enterprise deployment with multiple 1GB NIC ports, options for multiple 10GB NIC ports, out of band IPMI, redundant power and increased expandable capacity. The 5000 product line supports up to 6PB of cloud storage per controller using advanced technologies that only require 60 TB of local storage. Fast SSD cache is available to provide users with the best experience possible. Additional caching capacity can be added to available slots dynamically without service interruption.
