Panzura to Support Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Glacier Storage

Award-Winning Global Cloud Storage Solution Also to Offer In-Cloud AMI Enabling Multiple Use Cases

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- From the Amazon re:Invent show in Las Vegas, Panzura, a leading provider of global cloud storage solutions, today announced it is adding support for the Amazon Glacier storage API. Amazon Glacier is a secure and reliable cloud storage solution priced as low as $0.01/GB and designed for data archiving and backup use cases. In addition, Panzura also announced it will offer an in-cloud virtual machine (VM) as an AMI of its Quicksilver Cloud Storage Controller that runs in Amazon EC2.

Combined with existing support for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), the addition of Amazon Glacier and Amazon EC2 AMI solutions builds on the tight interaction between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Panzura's award winning Global Cloud Storage System. Amazon Glacier support provides access by Panzura customers to an extremely low-cost storage option, allowing them to tier storage according to needs between Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier and to optimize for cost/performance. Panzura customers can leverage Amazon S3 for data requiring rapid access and Amazon Glacier for data that can tolerate slower retrieval times.

The in-cloud AMI version of Panzura's Quicksilver Cloud Storage Controller for Amazon EC2, one of the first from a cloud storage appliance provider, allows Amazon customers to leverage Panzura technology across AWS platforms. This Quicksilver AMI can be used to restore data from Amazon S3 or Amazon Glacier either to users at a customer site or to applications running in Amazon EC2, where AWS would serve as an in-cloud DR site. This added capability provides even more flexibility to Panzura customers in optimizing their global storage infrastructure, including:

1. A standard CIFS/NFS interface for applications running in Amazon EC2 connecting to Amazon S3 or Amazon Glacier storage
2. Integration with a global file system connecting virtual and physical Quicksilver controllers worldwide
3. Enable global access to data even when that data is restricted to storage in a specific cloud region

The Panzura | Amazon joint platforms provide a comprehensive cloud tier for computing, tier 2 storage, and archive/backup. No other cloud combination on the market today gives this breadth of functionality that covers performance, cost and security. Customers such as Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, announced in a companion release today, can tap into unprecedented levels of flexibility and scalability, while still ensuring that their data is protected.

"In the wake of disasters like Superstorm Sandy where valuable data can be compromised, disaster recovery has gained greater priority while minimizing storage costs continue to drive IT strategy discussions," said Randy Chou, CEO of Panzura. "We're excited to offer support for both Amazon Glacier and Amazon EC2 to help companies and organizations safeguard and control data at any location, at all times, no matter the circumstance."

More Information and Availability
Panzura representatives will provide further details and demonstrations at booth 609 of the Amazon re:Invent show in Las Vegas from Nov 28-29, 2012.

The solution will be available in limited release in early 2013.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
