Panzura, a cloud storage provider and EMC (NYSE: EMC) ISV Atmos Cloud Specialty partner, announced at EMC World the integration of the firm’s Global Cloud Storage System with EMC Atmos, enabling customers and service providers to store and secure distributed, unstructured content at scale.

EMC Atmos provides the “building blocks” for customers to create a private, public or hybrid cloud storage environment. Coupled with Panzura’s cloud storage, the integrated solution provides “globally distributed enterprises with cross-site access to all files, integrated file locking, deduplication, encryption, snapshots, access management and massive scalability in capacity,” according to the companies.

The Panzura Global Cloud Storage System integration with EMC Atmos is now available for purchase, and can be accessed as a subscription service.

This month the HP Public Cloud initiative placed several services in public beta, and announced a whole slew of new partners, with Panzura signing on with its cloud storage offerings. Also, this past December Panzura launched a partnership with Scality, a scale-out storage provider, through which Panzura will begin supporting the Scality RING Organic Storage infrastructure -- one of several moves Panzura has made to expand its cloud ecosystem.
