Getting More Quantitative Analysis Modeling and Backtesting by Fixing Your Storage

HPC storage is under strain to deliver fast, shared dataset access for backtesting quantitative trading strategies. One solution is Panasas’ ActiveStor Ultra – a scalable, parallel, data storage system for reduced backtest times and higher accuracy modeling.

Active Archive Alliance Names Rich Gadomski and Betsy Doughty Co-Chairpersons of the Board

Boulder, Colo.—January 19, 2021—The Active Archive Alliance today announced that Rich Gadomski, head of tape evangelism at FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., and Betsy Doughty, vice president of corporate marketing at Spectra Logic, have been elected to serve as co-chairpersons of the Board of Directors for the Active Archive Alliance. Gadomski and Doughty have been engaged with the […]

Lenovo Offers Optimal Storage Platform for Intel DAOS

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Lenovo and Intel highlight how Lenovo is doing some exciting stuff with Intel’s DAOS software. DAOS, or Distributed Asynchronous Object Storage, is a scale-out HPC storage stack that uses the object storage paradigm to bypass some of the limitations of traditional parallel file system architectures.

What Do You Mean “What’s My Workload?” I Have Hundreds of Them!

In this sponsored post, Curtis Anderson, Senior Software Architect at Panasas, Inc., takes a look at what Panasas is calling Dynamic Data Acceleration (DDA) and how it dramatically improves HPC performance in a mixed-workload environment. DDA is a new, proprietary software feature of the Panasas PanFS® parallel file system that utilizes a carefully architected combination of technologies to get the most out of all the storage devices in the subsystem.

I Really Don’t Care About TCO … It’s RCO I am Worried About

In this sponsored post by Adam Marko, Director of Life Science Solutions – Panasas, Inc., we look at what we are calling Research Cost of Ownership (RCO) and the effect of HPC storage downtime and reduced productivity on the overall scientific mission.

Panasas PanFS 8: Architectural Overview

Panasas has released this timely new white paper “Panasas PanFS 8: Architectural Overview.” The report takes a “breadth-first” tour of the architecture of the PanFS® parallel file system, looking at its key components then diving deep into the main benefits. HPC environments, by their very nature, tend to be large and are usually quite complex. […]

Panasas PanFS 8: Architectural Overview

The PanFS® parallel file system delivers the highest performance among competitive HPC storage systems at any capacity, and takes the complexity and unreliability of typical high-performance computing (HPC) storage systems off your hands, and it does so using commodity hardware at competitive price points. In this white paper, we’re going to take a “breadth-first” tour of the architecture of PanFS, looking at its key components then diving deep into the main benefits.

Paradigm Change: Reinventing HPC Architectures with In-Package Optical I/O

This white paper from Ayar Labs, “Paradigm Change: Reinventing HPC Architectures with In-Package Optical I/O,” discusses an important innovation: reinventing HPC architectures with in-package optical I/O. The introduction of in-package optical I/O technology helps HPC centers accelerate the slope of compute progress needed to tackle ever-growing scientific problem sizes and HPC/AI convergence.

UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation Breaks Data Bottlenecks

In this compelling use case provided by our friends over at HPC storage solution provider Panasas, we look at how the UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation (CMI) got around a number of hurdles by deploying a Panasas ActiveStor® high-performance storage solution.
