Application Cloud Controller is an enterprise-grade scalable offering from Panzura, designed to allow customers to benefit from Cloud storage that beats tier-1 storage in terms of speed. At the basis of ACC is what Panzura calls a new approach to traditional storage, labeled "Application Network Storage,";ANS is the logical evolution from NAS and SAN storage," Randy Chou of Panzura, explained. "We can ensure right data is in right place at right time because we use automated application storage tiering (AAST). This gives us best performance and superior features, such as offline access and global live deduplication, while decreasing storage footprint and cost." "Microsoft SharePoint is the first fully supported app to work with ACC. Organizations typically see consistent performance improvements with up to a 20x increase in speed for SharePoint page loads and an 85% reduction in SharePoint SQL Server footprint due to binary large object (BLOB) externalization. Moreover, ACC's comprehensive understanding of usage and behavior of EBS and RBS helps enhance application performance, storage efficiency, and the end-user experience," Panzura noted.
