GFSaaS offers centralized, outsourced unstructured data storage through hybrid and public clouds.
FREMONT, CA: Panzura has released the world's first Global File System-as-a-Service (GFSaaS) for managed services providers (MSPs). In a move that will change the future of teamwork and collaboration in the enterprise, the service replaces traditional storage with always-on, SaaS-based modern data management. Panzura-certified MSPs will now provide consumers with a professionally managed and automated file-sharing experience as the industry transitions to infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and cloud-native services. GFSaaS offers centralized, outsourced unstructured data storage through hybrid and public clouds.
In conjunction with the launch, Panzura also declared a partnership in which CCL is the first MSP organization to offer Panzura GFSaaS to its customers. The GFSaaS delivery model was co-created with CCL, which contributed to the framework's further definition by driving the commercialization of a service-provider delivery model and expanding the functionality of Panzura Data Services as a powerful multi-tenant service management platform. CCL, New Zealand's largest locally-based information and communications technology (ICT) service provider, concluded a comprehensive early-adopter program with Panzura earlier this year, which included training and pilot implementation of the new technology. The successful pre-launch process improved the service's design and architecture considerations for data continuity, synchronization, security, replication, and access.
"CCL has been an indispensable partner in ensuring GFSaaS has been engineered with MSPs in mind. Their vision of GFSaaS as a new component of the managed services arsenal, in support of any type of cloud storage, has been both transformational and inspiring," stated Jill Stelfox, CEO at Panzura. "From talking to customers about the process and helping them understand the value, to training sales teams and assuring generous compensation, Panzura GFSaaS is a piece of cake for MSPs and an imperative for the enterprise."
