Panzura, the leader in multi-cloud data services, announced a partnership with Workspot to help joint customers move beyond technology barriers that hamper business growth. The companies’ joint go-to-market ISV (Independent Software Vendor) solution in the MSFT IP Co-Sell Partner Program aims to bring greater awareness to organizations about how Workspot’s Cloud VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) SaaS solution, in conjunction with Panzura’s Freedom 8 multi-cloud data services SaaS solution, address new use cases for power-users in the enterprise. “The partnership highlights an Alliance of the Future Charter by Channel Chief Gavriella Schuster that serves as a catalyst for digital transformation for any enterprise on the Azure Cloud,” says Jason C. McKinney, SVP of Alliances and Channels at Panzura.
Organizations across manufacturing, architecture, engineering, construction, life sciences, and more use graphics-intensive applications to design products and infrastructure and to visualize and analyze complex data. When Workspot’s Global Desktop Fabric™ for Cloud VDI is combined with Panzura’s global data fabric, customers gain the ability to deploy cloud desktops and workstations in any Azure region around the globe, while ensuring that project teams collaborate in a common data environment. Power users also experience very low latency no matter where they are located, resulting in improved productivity for project teams.
Workspot and Panzura already share a close working relationship with many joint customers, including Mead & Hunt, an architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firm with an ENR ranking of 119 in 2019. Since using Workspot and Panzura cloud solutions across more than 25 sites, Mead & Hunt has gained business agility that positions them better to meet growth objectives.
“Over the last two years, we have increased headcount by 50 percent to 900 people and reduced IT spend by $250k with the Panzura and Workspot joint solution. We are now operating as one collaborative team across our company, increasing productivity across all employees,” says Andy Knauf, CIO at Mead & Hunt.
