In this video from ISC 2015, Geoffrey Noer from Panasas describes ActiveStor 18, the company’s latest-generation hybrid scale-out NAS appliance. By adopting 8 terabyte drive technology, ActiveStor 18 increases scalability to more than 20 petabytes and 200 gigabytes per second. According to Panasas, ActiveStor 18 also offers increased CPU power and twice the storage cache capacity to further accelerate mixed workload performance.
￼ActiveStor offers a true scale-out architecture incorporating hybrid storage hardware, file system and protocols in a fully integrated solution. Its architecture combines high-capacity hard drives and fast flash devices for superior mixed-workload performance with rapid access to small and large files alike.”
