Cloud Storage Reduces Cost, Improves Performance of Global Document Delivery

CAMPBELL, CA, Jan 29, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Panzura, a leading provider of global cloud storage solutions, today announced that Healthcare Realty (HR), a leading real estate investment trust with more than 30 sites that integrates owning, managing and developing properties associated with the delivery of healthcare services, has selected Panzura’s award-winning Global Cloud Storage System and an EMC Atmos private cloud to replace its global Citrix implementation for file distribution and sharing. The benefits of this seamless conversion from Citrix to a cloud-integrated global file system include dramatically improved user satisfaction and productivity, faster data access, massive scalability, and data access anytime, anywhere, by anyone in the globally-distributed enterprise.

“We really struggled with Citrix to provide our distributed users over more than 30 offices rapid access to files we need to run our business,” said Robert Dillard, Associate Vice President of Technology Services at HR. “Panzura allows rapid, secure serving of files to any user regardless of location, seamlessly integrating with the cloud as a very low flexible storage tier that can instantly scale to whatever capacity we need. Users love it.”

HR had been relying on Citrix to allow globally distributed users to share files like MS Office documents as part of their standard workflow but over time, users found the quality of file sharing was poor on that platform. HR investigated several alternatives, including Riverbed, but did not find a satisfactory solution until they evaluated Panzura, in particular the global file locking capability that prevented file corruption from simultaneous writes. Users have responded by saying they see a “tremendous difference” in performance and access, characterizing the system responsiveness as “amazing.”

Panzura’s Global Cloud Storage System, comprised of the Quicksilver Cloud Storage Controller, PZOS operating system, and Panzura CloudFS global file system, appears as just another local network drive to all users and applications worldwide. Every user can access all files, based on permissions, across all locations with LAN-like performance. Unique Panzura features like a global file system, global file locking, global deduplication, local caching/pinning, and military-grade encryption provide a local NAS experience for users and applications while leveraging the scalability and cost benefits of the cloud.

“We are very pleased HR realized such strong value in the Panzura cloud storage solution,” said Randy Chou, CEO of Panzura. “Panzura’s robust global file system platform combined with the scalability and cost benefits will allow HR to grow at lower cost and higher productivity.”
