Panasas Moves to Hybrid Storage with ActiveStor 14

This week Panasas introduced ActiveStor 14, an SSD-Accelerated Scale-out NAS appliance optimized for extreme bandwidth and small file performance for Big Data workloads. According to the company, the new platform will satisfy the bandwidth requirements of the most demanding high-performance storage applications while opening new opportunities for Panasas parallel storage technology in industries with I/O intensive workloads such as finance, life sciences, energy, and manufacturing.

Panasas plans to demonstrate the new technology next week at the HPC on Wall Street conference, with first shipments scheduled for November. Read the Full Story.
