Panzura offers enterprises a centralized view of their data with Vizion.AI

Hybrid cloud storage provider Panzura Inc. today pulled back the curtains on Vizion.AI, a new service that offers organizations a single pane of glass for managing their data.

Panzura said the offering addresses two big trends. The first is the continued growth of digital data, which International Data Corp. sees reaching 163 zettabytes by 2025. The other trend is  that enterprises are distributing their information across multiple environments as part of the shift toward multicloud models.

More than 80 percent of organizations already rely on more than one cloud platform, according to one recent study. Panzura said Vizion.AI enables administrators to view all the data in their companies’ disparate storage environments through a centralized dashboard. They can interact with the records using a set of advanced features that the startup said incorporate machine learning.

One of Vizion.AI’s flagship capabilities is integration with Elasticsearch, an open-source tool for browsing business data. The project ranks as the most popular search engine among enterprises and supports a wide range of information types. That includes both structured and unstructured records, as well such as niche data such as geolocation measurements.

The service also includes what Panzura described as predictive analytics features. According to the startup, administrators can analyze how users interact with records and assess infrastructure spending to find ways of lowering data storage costs.

Lastly, Vizion.AI makes core features accessible via specialized application programming interfaces. The APIs enable organizations to harness the service to power external workloads, such as an analytics tool that may require the ability to view and manage information from different sources in one place.  

The new service is taking its place alongside Panzura’s flagship Freedom family of data management solutions. The lineup is underpinned by the Panzura Global File System, a software platform that lets companies store the bulk of their data on low-cost cloud infrastructure while relegating the most important records to on-premises hardware for faster access.

The startup raised $32 million in funding last year to support product development efforts.
