CloudFS 8.0.2.0

Introducing a new security integration with Varonis, one-stop alerting and more - here's what's new, improved and different in CloudFS 8.0.2.0.

Early Availability Release Date 2/5/2021
Build # 16863

CloudFS 8.0.2.0 is now Early Availability, and is available for upgrade on a waiting list basis. We'll let you know as soon as it's generally available.

What's New 💥

Security

You now have deeper security visibility and sophisticated threat detection for your Panzura data due to our new integration with Varonis.

Once you've upgraded to CloudFS 8.0.2.0, just connect your data sources to any of

  • Varonis DatAdvantage
  • DatAlert/DatAlert Analytics
  • Data Classification Engine
  • or Automation Engine, and you're away.

Alerting

Alerts are now easier to monitor and understand. We've collected all the Panzura system alerts into your notification center, and boosted your visibility into what's going wrong, where, and how to fix it.

More Storage Options

3 new object stores have joined the Panzura-supported family:

What's Improved 🛠️

  • High Availability Auto Failover has been tweaked to improve stability and reliability by enforcing minimum values in configuration.  That ensures HA auto failover happens fast when it should, and doesn't happen when it shouldn't.
  • Previously, you had to manually enable auto pre-populate. That was a bit silly, because you shouldn't have to say you want every location to predict which files to proactively cache. After all, that's what lets people open them as fast as if they're stored locally. Of course that's what you want.  We've made it happen automagically 😉

Bug Fixes 🐜

Lots of slightly annoying (but not significantly performance-impacting) things have been addressed in 8.0.2.0.  Including typos in an alert 🙈
