What is Panzura Auto Pre-Populate?

Auto pre-populate is a smart feature on Panzura's Filers that proactively delivers file changes to the locations most likely to need them next.

This highly intelligent feature tracks which files are actively being worked on at a particular location. It then proactively downloads changes to that file made anywhere, into its local cache.
For example, when a file is accessed by users at location A and then modified at location B, the Filer recognizes that file is an active file and downloads the latest changes to location A.
This proactive step ensures when users are collaborating on files, the latest, most up-to-date file is always cached locally and keeps users from waiting for changes to download from the cloud object store.
