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.
