CAMPBELL, Calif. – January 26, 2017 – Panzura®, the leader in hybrid cloud storage, today announced a significant expansion in enterprise grade functionality and services to meet the increasing large enterprise demand for hybrid cloud storage. These new software, hardware, and support services offerings are available immediately and provide substantial enhancements for Panzura’s primary use cases of active archive, hybrid cloud NAS, and cross-site collaboration.
In addition to larger virtual machine cache sizes, Panzura also introduced a new hybrid cloud controller model that doubles the cache size of Panzura’s previously largest hybrid cloud controller. Panzura’s newest controller, the 5550, provides a 16 terabyte usable cache size equating to over three petabytes of total storage footprint addressable by a single controller. All Panzura 5000 series hybrid cloud controllers received a performance boost resulting in a 40% increase in throughput.
To provide the extra level of support services needed by larger enterprise customers, Panzura is now providing a new Technical Account Manager program. Panzura Technical Account Managers can be dedicated or shared, and provide personalized planning and operational support of the Panzura hybrid cloud storage environment. The Technical Account Manager acts as a liaison with internal Panzura groups and resources to assist in providing the highest level of proactive support services. The Technical Account Manager reviews and oversees all of Panzura support activity and regularly monitors customers’ controllers, using Panzura’s Support Assistance.
“With the increasing adoption of a cloud-first model, Panzura added a significant number of large enterprise customers in 2016. The common requirement across all these customers is that everything must be enterprise grade,” said Patrick Harr, CEO of Panzura. “Our latest version of software is the most rock solid release ever delivered by Panzura and furthers our market-leading enterprise scale, performance, throughput and availability. This, combined with our new platforms and premium support services, makes it an easy transition to a hybrid cloud storage model.”
