Panzura gets 8 new patents

Panzura, the leader in hybrid cloud storage, today announced that within the past 60 days, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded the company eight new patents.

These patents cover key enabling technology for the Panzura distributed cloud file system, which provides true storage consolidation in the cloud without sacrificing performance at the edge.

As a result, customers can move to hybrid cloud storage rapidly to manage exponential unstructured data growth and reduce total storage costs by up to 70 percent. Panzura has won 26 patents to date, with 19 more pending.

Specifically, the new patents cover: Data locality policies and caching; Global deduplication; Recovering a VM from the cloud; Deleting a file from a distributed file system; Performing antivirus in a distributed file system; Distributed change notification; Synchronizing file updates between two cloud controllers of a distributed file system; and Distributed interim notifications.

Adding over two petabytes of enterprise storage under management per month, Panzura is a market leader in enterprise hybrid cloud storage. Panzura hybrid cloud storage software seamlessly combines the economics, capacity, and business model of cloud storage with the flexibility, performance, and features of enterprise storage.

Using Panzura, enterprises shift from an antiquated storage status quo model into the cloud and unlock the power of data. Organizations like Milwaukee Tool, American College of Radiology, and Chevron use Panzura for active archive, hybrid cloud NAS, and cross-site collaboration.
