Our Unified Data Mobility and Protection Appliance is an essential tool for any enterprise data center. Parsec Labs offers the simplest tools to migrate, replicate and backup data at scale.

Data Independence. Storage technologies come and go. Data is forever.

Parsec is designed to empower customers who want to protect and mobilize data stored on network storage devices (NFS/SMB/S3). We provide fast near-line block transfers as well (iSCSi, Fiber Channel, NVME-TCP). 

Virtual appliances for vmware, kvm, Nutanix and QEMU. Download from our website, set your network connections, and use our Discovery tool for free. When you are ready to buy just register and license your appliance. Online or contact us for purchase orders and special pricing requests.

We have simplified our pricing to reflect a small, medium, and large enterprise data center. Parsec Labs never charges a per TB tax. Please contact sales to set up a meeting to help evaluate your needs.

Our virtual appliance can be downloaded for free from our website for deployment on your hypervisor of choice to evaluate the interface and conduct a Discovery of your current NAS.
Discovery scans and create reports on all mounts/shares. Reports the number of directories, directory depth, smallest file, largest file, number of bytes and median file size range in bytes. Use this tool to right-size your DR requirements and estimate migrations.
Reports can be output as csv, xml, json and html.

Yes! Just contact us by emailing us at .

Parsec's discovery tool can scan tens of thousands of files per second and build a detailed report on total number of files, total number of directories, number of files in directories, average file size—and more usefully the median file size, as well as the total size of all mounts in a network filer. This tool will export reports in json, xml, csv and html. Right size migrations and D/R requirements as well as get basic insight to your networked storage.

You bet, and it's a great way to build a completely custom view to all of your data as well as to manage fail-safe data requirements.

We work well with the big names. If your filer supports SMB and NFS to spec no problem. If not, we will extend our best effort to support your environment.

SMB1 (CIFS); SMB 2.0x (older filers); SMB 2.1-3.1

V3 currently. We will likely add 4.1 in the future.

Yes (and we upload the map in case you decide to stop using us. We hope you don't!)

Yes. (If you have a lot of files those reports can be quite large.)

It's on the roadmap.

So far we haven't had a lot of demand. But it would be nice to round out the cloud storage endpoints.
