Panasas announced today a new partnership with Dell aimed at developing integrated compute and storage solutions for the life-sciences market. The new solution includes Dell M610 blade servers and Panasas ActiveStor storage appliances.
Our life sciences customers rely on Dell because we take the complexity out of research technology deployments. They care about faster simulations and time to results,” said August Calhoun, vice president of Dell Life Sciences. “After joint analysis, testing and benchmarks with Panasas, together we are bringing to market an integrated, turnkey BLAST solution with industry-leading performance and management simplicity.”
The base configuration comes packaged via a half-height rack which includes the Dell blade server chassis and two Panasas ActiveStor shelves interconnected via gigabit ethernet. For more info on the new partnership, read the full release here.
