CTC Offers Panzura Global File Systems

CTC, a leading provider to the Building and Infrastructure Industries, announced that it has partnered with Panzura, the only provider of global locking file systems, to address the critical need for cross-site CAD/BIM (building information modeling) collaboration within the AECO industry. Several trends have prompted the demand for sophisticated global locking file systems amongst AECO professionals.

Teams within the industry are increasingly geographically dispersed and file counts have grown exponentially. New compliance mandates and regulations are requiring the use of highly evolved solutions such as BIM. In turn, the need for advanced data storage, sharing and management capabilities has grown exponentially.

Panzura’s Global Locking File 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.

This new partnership with Panzura enables CTC’s customers to streamline the project delivery process and allows AECO organizations to overcome the challenges associated with collaboration on building information models across distributed sites:

• Consistent global file system for a common view of all files across all locations at all times, accessible from anywhere.

• Full cloud integration providing low cost, infinite scalability, and data protection via continuous replication.

• Up to 10,000 user-managed snapshots per controller for self-service recovery of deleted files.

“Workflows today require collaborative resources that span across work stations, multi-office firms and project sites,” said Adam Hamilton, Application Engineer. “The ability to share data and resources efficiently is critical to the overall time spent on projects. CTC is excited to partner with Panzura, and provide clients an option to store files remotely.”

Panzura has enabled global organizations ranging from oil-and-gas and entertainment to healthcare and legal to collaborate across offices just as easily as they do in a single office," said Joe Muniz, Director of Channels at Panzura. "Now, through our partnership with CTC we are pleased to be able extend our solutions even further into the AECO industry where our combined expertise will solve the cross-site BIM collaboration issues have nagged the industry for years."
