Vendor recommended configuration:
Vendor Settings: The default configuration enables auto-tuning for all Panzura settings, which work well with the Veeam application. The caching policy should be set to pinned (as opposed to autotune) to ensure the administrator controls which backup sets are available locally. All Veeam backup data must be pinned locally to ensure fast restores and effective data operations within Veeam, without cloud reads.
