The Cloud Made Simple

Panzura is the fabric that transforms cloud storage into a high-performance file system, letting you use the cloud like a globally available data center.

  • Reduce storage costs by moving unstructured file data to the cloud. Take advantage of cloud economics and unlimited capacity.
  • Reduce storage infrastructure costs by as much as 70%. Get the best of cloud and local storage. Blend the economics and unlimited capacity of the cloud with the performance and features of local storage. Cache active data locally, and put cold data in the cloud.
  • Reduce backups. Cloud providers can offer 11 nines of durability. So you can consolidate backup and tape archive operations to the cloud.

Freedom Archive

Single site solution to eliminate backup and archive, replace local NAS, or manage large data sets such as genomic and seismic data.

Freedom Multi-Site NAS

Replace legacy NAS and consolidate data across any number of sites to modernize the data center while achieving local all flash performance.

Freedom Collaboration

Replace islands of storage, eliminate the impact of latency, and empower global users to collaborate in real-time.


Backup and Disaster Recovery for Enterprise Databases

When it comes to backup and disaster recovery of enterprise databases, the needs of DBAs and IT management are not the same. DBAs need to be able to achieve immediate recovery, while IT needs to ensure compliance. The result is a complex and costly solution.

The Cost of Maintaining the Storage Status Quo

DC predicts that the amount of data we create will increase 50x from 2010 to 2020. This creates an enormous problem for IT leaders: Storage CAPEX and OPEX budgets are being crippled due to the explosion of unstructured data growth.

Hybrid NAS: Enterprise Challenges

Local, not distributed

Ideal for local data sharing, but cannot effectively share large data sets over distance.

Complex and Costly

Complex and costly data protection processes burden IT and still limit data availability and durability.

Difficult to Scale

Limited and costly scalability options make managing data growth expensive and difficult.


The inherent latency of connecting to a local data center, as well as the serial nature of cloud object storage, means that cloud object storage cannot match local data center performance. This limits the workloads that can migrate to the cloud since many applications and users have a continous demand on performance.


Applications and business workflows have been built around traditional SMB and NFS protocols. Migrating to the cloud, which uses object storage, means rewriting applications or changing established business processes. Neither is acceptable for the enterprise.

Hybrid NAS: Benefits

Enterprise Workloads

As an enterprise solution, Freedom NAS supports both NFS and SMB as high performance protocols simultaneously.

Fast Deployment

Complex and costly data protection processes burden IT and still limit data availability and durability.

Scale on Demand

With Freedom NAS, organizations can simply add capacity as they need it. As the costs of cloud storage decline, the enterprise gains the cost savings.

Pay as you Go

Choose the public or private cloud provider that meets the needs of the organization. Never again purchase storage in advance of need.

Consolidate Storage

Freedom NAS consolidates 100% of unstructured data in the cloud simplifying management, eliminating scalability issues, and improving performance across sites.

Eliminate Backup and DR

By consolidating data in the cloud, data is protected through the high durability of the cloud. Enterprise snapshots provide point in time data restoration for fast recovery.

How Data is Secured

  • NIST compliance
  • Military-grade AES-256-CBC encryption
  • KMIP for encryption certificates
