Panzura Adds Support for Joyent Manta Storage Service

Addition of Dell Cloud Partner Provides Additional Choice for Panzura Customers

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - Panzura, a leading provider of global cloud storage solutions, today announced support for the newly launched Joyent Manta Storage Service, a next-generation cloud object platform providing a robust, low-cost solution for unstructured data. Joyent, one of the first partners added to the Dell Cloud Partner Program, joins the growing Panzura ecosystem of cloud storage providers, giving greater choice for Panzura's enterprise customers to lower cost and increase agility. Panzura is the first cloud-integrated storage company to support Joyent Manta Storage Service.

No organization is able to escape either the massive worldwide surge in data growth or the increasing global dispersion of people needing access to that data. The combined Panzura/Joyent/Dell solution lets enterprise customers leverage Joyent Manta Storage Service for all their unstructured data storage requirements with Panzura providing a global file system to enable worldwide storage consolidation and distributed file sharing. Seamless integration with Dell hardware carves out tremendous opportunity for enterprise customers to experience the benefits of cloud storage from leading vendors in their field. The Panzura solution also provides a robust archiving, backup, and DR platform with the Joyent Manta Storage Service as the central data repository.

Using Panzura Global Cloud Storage Systems in conjunction with the Joyent Manta Storage Service provides:

  • Sharing of files across all sites of a globally-distributed enterprise for improved access and productivity
  • Full data security from military-grade encryption of data both in motion and at rest in the Joyent Cloud
  • Seamless integration with massively scalable cloud capacity for all unstructured file storage
  • Cloud-based active archiving, backup, and disaster recovery services

"The Joyent Manta Storage Service breaks the traditional stranglehold of local NAS on the enterprise," said Henry Wasik, President and CEO, Joyent. "By connecting Panzura's Global Cloud Storage System to the Joyent Manta Storage Service, our customers get a full-featured cloud-integrated NAS solution with a global file system and rapid data access and processing in the cloud. This combination represents a significant step in the cloud's march to replace local tier 2 storage in the enterprise."

"Joyent Manta Storage Service represents an exciting alternative for customers looking to offload and consolidate storage services to the cloud," said Jim Thayer, Vice President of Channels and Business Development at Panzura. "By combining the Joyent and Panzura platform and integrating with Dell hardware, enterprises can efficiently and quickly access and process unstructured data with lower cost and a streamlined infrastructure."
