Panzura Awarded With United States Patents for Global Cloud-Attached Storage

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Panzura, a leading provider of global cloud storage solutions, today announced that it has been awarded three patents for its proprietary innovation by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

"Global Deduplication File System" under US Patent No. 8,306,948 "Efficient Cloud Network Attached Storage" under US Patent No. 8,341,363 "Forwarding File-system-Level Information to a Storage Management System" under US Patent No. 8,356,016.

The new patents recognize the underlying technology of the Panzura Operating System (OS), which forms the core of its award-winning Panzura Global Cloud Storage System: the industry's first storage solution to bring advanced NAS capabilities to a distributed, cloud-integrated storage tier, providing a globally-distributed storage system with LAN-like performance.

"Global Deduplication File System" covers techniques for exchanging deduplication data among devices to reduce the amount of duplicate data that is stored in a distributed file system, including extensive use of snapshot and metadata sharing. The uniqueness of this technology stems from its truly global implementation across geographically-dispersed locations on a massive scale.

"Efficient Cloud Network Attached Storage" covers techniques for sending incremental data and metadata snapshots between a federation of cloud controllers that cache and ensure data consistency for data stored in a distributed file-system.

"Forwarding File-System-Level Information to a Storage Management System" covers techniques for forwarding file-system-level requests received by an existing application-layer network protocol implementation to a distributed storage management system, thereby presenting an abstraction of one global, extensible file-system while preserving the abstraction of high-speed local data access.

"We are proud that the hard work and outstanding innovation of our engineering team has been recognized and validated by the US Patent and Trademark Office," said Randy Chou, CEO of Panzura. "These patents are further validation that our solution is uniquely capable of addressing the demands of the modern globally-distributed enterprise with unparalleled leading edge-technology." About PanzuraPanzura optimizes enterprise data storage management and distribution in the cloud, making cloud storage simple and secure. Panzura's revolutionary global cloud storage solution seamlessly combines the flexibility, performance, and productivity benefits of distributed storage with the manageability, security and cost benefits of centralized storage, overcoming fundamental "administrator vs. user" and "budget vs. performance" conflicts. With Panzura, data location no longer affects usage. Panzura: Cloud Storage Made Seamless. For more information, visit www.panzura.com, or email info@Panzura.com.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
