Shopzilla, Inc., which manages a premier portfolio of online shopping brands including Bizrate, Beso, Shopzilla, TaDa, PrixMoinsCher, and SparDeinGeld, has been searching for a solution that would allow it to consolidate the backup and DR functions from multiple locations into a single, enterprise-wide backup. Running disk-to-disk-to-tape backup in each geographically distributed datacenter can be very labor intensive, and the limited datacenter staff has more pressing priorities. In addition, multiple disparate backups require a significantly larger storage infrastructure, as a great deal of data is duplicated across each location.

In addition to increasing the efficiency of IT operations at each location, the Panzura solution has allowed the elimination of legacy storage hardware from the backup process. This results in a measurable reduction in both capital and operational expense for Shopzilla, and allows the re-deployment of storage hardware for future primary storage needs.
"We look forward to working with Panzura to further improve the efficiency of our storage infrastructure," Mr. Engineer added. "We’re very excited to see the early results that they’ve allowed us, and are beginning to explore new opportunities to utilize the product."
