Microdesk and Panzura Partner to Deliver Advanced Cloud Storage Solutions

Partnership to Empower Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations (AECO) Industry Organizations with Centralized Data Storage, Reduced Latency and Real Distributed Design and Construction Solutions

NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Microdesk, a leading provider of business and technology consulting services to help firms successfully plan, design, build and operate land and buildings, today announced that it has partnered with Panzura, a provider of global cloud storage solutions, to address the critical need for high performing data storage and management systems within the AECO industry.

Several concurrent trends have prompted the demand for sophisticated, cloud-based global file systems amongst AECO professionals. As teams within the industry are increasingly geographically dispersed and new compliance mandates and regulations are requiring the use of highly evolved solutions such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) the need for advanced data storage, sharing and management capabilities has grown exponentially.   

The Panzura Global Cloud Storage System provides enterprise-class data services that include networking, security and storage solutions. Regardless of the project size or scope, Panzura's global file system provides geographically distributed enterprises with a common view of files across all locations, accessible anytime, anywhere. This provides end-users with a significantly improved global user experience, reduced local provisioning and streamlined IT operations.

Through this partnership, Microdesk along with Panzura will continue to streamline the project delivery process, allowing AECO organizations to overcome the challenges associated with access to large distributed data stores including Building Information Models:

  • Solving the 'File Open Problem' – The time it takes to open, transfer, close and save project files for programs such as Revit, AutoCAD and Civil 3D is a major concern for AECO professions. Panzura solves the 'File Open Problem' by reducing latency, in some cases slashing file open times from 20 minutes to 10 seconds, effectively increasing productivity and performance.
  • Centralizing Storage – With file counts growing, there is need for high performing storage management solutions. Panzura's global file system provides firms the ability to securely manage and transfer enormous volumes of data across dispersed sites, providing seamless access to all.
  • Delivering A Consistent User Experience – While AECO teams may be globally dispersed, it is critical for all parties involved to work as if they are local. Panzura provides a consistent experience for global users requiring only a Windows server and a Panzura Cloud Controller at each remote office.
  • Improving Existing Workflows – Sharing across offices can be problematic, oftentimes leading to storage silos and localized project management. Panzura's approach to centralized storage allows firms to enhance global user performance by reducing siloed and time-consuming processes.

"Today's building technologies provide industry organizations with the ability to drastically improve processes throughout the project lifecycle, including planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance," said Michael DeLacey, principal of Microdesk. "That said, without the proper technological infrastructure and data storage systems, productivity and performance are easily hampered. The Microdesk team is thrilled to be partnering with Panzura to provide sophisticated, cloud-based data management solution to this challenge."

"We have enabled organizations ranging from global oil-and-gas organizations and entertainment corporations to healthcare and legal institutions, as well as in the AECO industry, to significantly improve their data management systems," said Randy Chou, CEO and co-founder of Panzura. "Now, through our partnership with Microdesk we are pleased to be able extend our solutions even further into the AECO industry where our combined expertise will synergistically provide benefits that will have a very profound impact; enabling time-effective file sharing, data optimization and security for organizations as they work on major infrastructure projects around the globe."
