CAMPBELL, Calif. – Panzura, a leader in multi-cloud file services and data management, today announced the launch of its new Vizion.ai SaaS platform for multi-cloud data management. Vizion.ai delivers a single, unified vision of data across the enterprise and provides powerful search, analysis, recovery and control of multi-cloud data for greater productivity, operational intelligence, improved security and reduced storage costs.
According to IDC, $68 billion will be spent on multi-cloud data services by 2021 and 85 percent of cloud adopters plan to have multi-cloud environments. In addition, data is doubling every two years, 80 percent of which is unstructured, growing to an astronomical 163 zettabytes by 2025. The massive growth of data has led to uncontrollable sprawl and isolated data islands, in both public and private clouds, preventing organizations from creating any comprehensive image or understanding of their data. That poses a serious challenge to both executives and IT teams, who rely on this data to inform business decisions and maintain and secure internal operations.
“Vizion.ai gives Prosper Marketplace a unified view of our unstructured data from our data center to the public clouds,” said Fabian Duarte, Senior Storage Engineer at Prosper Marketplace. “As a result, we can now search and audit our file metadata, analyze our hot, warm and cold data, and restore and clone the data for our DevOps teams. We were also able to save tens of thousands of dollars per month in cloud storage costs by leveraging Vizion.ai’s machine learning cost-optimization.”
The new Vizion.ai SaaS platform provides complete visibility and control over an organization’s data, enabling enterprises to virtually consolidate all of their metadata into a single, unified view for comprehensive indexing, search, analysis and control of unstructured data. Search and analytics functions are powered by Vizion.ai’s breakthrough hyper-scale, multi-cloud data engine, helping companies uncover and act on hidden insights across datasets. The SaaS platform natively integrates Elasticsearch and also provides machine learning for predictive analytics to help lower costs based on data access patterns and performance/cost analysis of cloud storage locations. Finally, Vizion.ai’s open API lets third party developers take advantage of Vizion.ai’s powerful multi-cloud-data engine to build new applications.
“Vizion.ai is a great win for developers that want to embed custom metadata search and analytics in their offerings via the VIzion.ai API,” said Victor Chen, CTO of UnisWDC. “We are currently using Vizion.ai as part of our overall smart city solution to store and search video surveillance metadata across tens of thousands of IoT endpoints. This allows sub-second search across thousands of hours of video to find the needle in the haystack.”
“Vizion.ai is the result of over two years of intense R&D innovation to build a hyper-scale, multi-cloud data engine with embedded machine learning and analytics,” said Patrick Harr, CEO of Panzura. “This breakthrough SaaS platform addresses a $68 billion market by enabling enterprise customers and third-party developers to meet the most demanding requirements for data search, analytics and governance in a multi-cloud world.”
