Panzura, a leading provider of global cloud storage solutions, today announced that the Executive Office for United States Attorneys has awarded a contract to standardize globally on Panzura for its next-generation Storage-as-a-Service platform serving all United States Attorneys' Office locations nationwide. The solution will consolidate storage from approximately 265 USAOs, across all U.S. judicial districts, to an internal storage cloud. The Panzura Global Cloud Storage System will replace some legacy distributed storage infrastructure with a centralized repository to improve data access, meet stringent security and performance standards and dramatically increase operational efficiency.
The Panzura Global Cloud
Storage System provides globally-distributed organizations with a
consolidated storage infrastructure that offers cross-site LAN access to
all files, integrated file locking, global deduplication,
military-grade encryption, continuous snapshots, fast replication and
DR, advanced access management and massive scalability in capacity. In
addition, Panzura meets critical federal compliance requirements for

geographically dispersed USAOs and two existing data centers, United
States Attorney locations share common characteristics, yet each
district also features unique business mandates and varied storage
footprints. The amount of storage ranges from approximately 3TB for
smaller offices and up to 17TB for larger offices. Panzura storage
replaces a siloed, dispersed infrastructure with a seamless, fast and
centralized storage platform that is interconnected by a global file
system and drastically reduces system-wide duplication of data.
ubiquitous real-time access to all data globally, the Panzura solution
allows EOUSA to leverage efficient cloud object storage to reduce CapEx
significantly, while making users much more self-sufficient in finding
and obtaining data whenever and wherever needed. Panzura's award-winning
Global Cloud Storage System leverages cloud storage at the back end and
presents a seamless NAS-like interface at the front end, which, along
with all standard NAS features and controls, makes data feel local
regardless of location. Data is securely accessed on a need-to-see
basis, and chargeback capability allows IT to allocate internal costs
according to usage.

tightly-integrated NAS solution to meet these aggressive storage goals
of EOUSA, all while reducing costs across the board."
