Customers dramatically improve productivity, getting multi-million dollar design projects out on time and on budget while reducing storage costs up to 70 percent
CAMPBELL, Calif., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Panzura, the leader in unstructured data management in the cloud, today announced a partnership with Frame, the secure cloud workspace platform, to accelerate global, real-time collaboration for virtual workspaces. The Panzura FreedomTM intelligent hybrid cloud storage platform now integrates with Frame, providing ubiquitous access to data in Frame workspaces. The combination of real-time, global collaboration enabled by Panzura Freedom and Frame's easy-to-use cloud platform, results in dramatic productivity improvements for global design projects while reducing unstructured data storage costs up to 70 percent.
Frame's cloud-based virtual workspaces make it easy to run Windows applications from any device, at any time through a typical web browser. Customers pay for virtual desktop services per seat on a monthly basis as needed with no software to install or hardware to manage. Application management is easy with an application dashboard that allows customers to select, deploy, and keep all of their applications up to date with the push of a button.
"Frame workspaces are an ideal solution for our small offices of less than five people, remote job trailers, and home users because they give everyone the same experience as if they were in the office," said Andy Knauf, head of information technology, Mead & Hunt. "Frame provides seamless integration into Panzura Freedom, enhancing our ability to collaborate on design projects from anywhere, anytime. Within three years I anticipate that half of our organization will be using some kind of workstation entirely in the cloud."
"Applications and compute platforms all share one important attribute – that the data drives the value," said Patrick Harr, CEO, Panzura. "Panzura provides ubiquitous access to data exactly where it is needed for Frame customers. By putting a customer's data directly next to their cloud workspaces, they experience data center-calibre performance with even the most complex visual applications."
Panzura CloudFSTM, the only enterprise file system purpose-built for the cloud, underpins Panzura Freedom. CloudFS gives Frame customers the flexibility to access their data through virtual workspaces or their office workstations. No matter where they are in the world, they can collaborate on the same files in real-time without user intervention.
Panzura CloudFS keeps data local where it is needed, synchronizing and locking files globally in a way that allows all users to feel like they are working together at the same location -- even if they are not. Additionally, because Panzura CloudFS is an intelligent hybrid cloud storage solution, it provides elastic growth capabilities and cloud economics, as well as an integrated and automated DR (disaster recovery) solution and backup.
Frame resells Panzura Freedom integrated with Frame workspaces. Visit Panzura booth #D212 and Frame booth #D400 this week during Autodesk University. Panzura customers will be sharing case studies at the Frame booth at 1:00PM Pacific Time on both Tuesday, November 14 and Wednesday, November 15.
