This week Panasas announced immediate availability what it calls the world’s fastest parallel storage system. Panasas ActiveStor 12 is a fourth-generation storage-blade architecture that deliver data rates of 1.5GB/s per chassis. Also known as PAS 12, the system scales to data rates of up to 150GB/s, which makes it ideal for highly demanding HPC applications in the energy, government, finance, manufacturing, and bioscience.
When most organizations talk about data growth they focus on the leap from storing terabytes to petabytes of information. Of equal importance is the explosion in demand for more rapid creation and delivery of this information,” said Richard Villars, vice president of storage and IT executive strategies at IDC. “The parallel file system and architectures used in solutions like Panasas PAS 12 will play a key role in enabling more data-intense and data-hungry high performance computing environments.”
Panasas will showcase the new PAS 12 at SC10 booth 2029.
