Panzura Modernizes Data Management for MSPs


Panzura Modernizes Data Management for MSPs

By Stefania Viscusi

Never before have disparate teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently than after COVID-19 shutdowns. Now, most enterprises are open to remote work even if they never considered in pre-pandemic. To help make working from anywhere even more effective, Panzura offers a global cloud file system that users across hundreds of offices can utilize and feel like they’re in the same room.

The company’s latest launch, a Global File System-as-a service (GFSaaS) for MSPs, is a bid to transform data management. With a fully managed and automated file sharing experience, customers can support their future of work teams to collaborate and work smarter.

This new service replaces legacy storage as more companies transition to the cloud. They’ll gain always-on, SaaS-based modern data management.

As part of the new offering, Panzura-certified MSPs can offer their customers a fully managed and automated file-sharing experience across hybrid and public clouds.

The company chose New Zealand-based managed services provider CCL as the first partner to offer its solution to customers. The companies created a delivery model and extended Panzura Data Services into a powerful multi-tenant service management platform. They also completed a successful pilot deployment and pre-launch process.

"We've seen first-hand the breakneck pace at which our customers are not only consuming SaaS but finding their way to a cloud-first mentality when it comes to their IT infrastructure and spending," said Richard Hansen, portfolio services director at CCL. "Panzura GFSaaS has arrived at the right time and with the right approach toward complete cloud data management. It is a must-have for MSPs who want to stay at the top of their game and help the enterprise win the battle for competitive advantage."

"Our partnership with Panzura extends CCL's lead at the forefront of helping New Zealand's government agencies and largest enterprises adapt to this new reality no matter where people are or how much distance is between them," added Hansen.

For most internal IT teams, the complex and cumbersome task of managing cloud-based services can be alleviated with Panzura’s new service. MSPs can now manage the architecture and give administrators an easy-to-access web interface filled with tools to install, configure and control access, security and governance.

"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," said Jill Stelfox, CEO at Panzura.
