Panasas has announced that they were chosen by Sweden’s Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science [UPPMAX] for a recent storage deployment. The new install includes 500TB of Panasas ActiveStor in order to combat the UPPMAX data expansion of 1TB of per day.
We’re standardizing on Panasas storage in our next-generation sequencing archive today, and are planning to double the capacity in early 2010,” said Jonas Hagberg, storage expert, UPPMAX. “The ease of scalability of our Panasas solution is very important, as is the ability to integrate Panasas seamlessly with Tivoli Storage Manager which is our existing back-up solution.”
UPPMAX serves a wide array of academic users with diverse application workloads, so they required a storage architecture that could service a wide mixture of I/O patterns and throughput. For more info, read their full release here.
