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.

Panasas Names Tom Shea President/CEO, Succeeds Faye Pairman

High performance vendor Panasas today announced that COO Tom Shea has succeeded Faye Pairman as president and chief executive officer and member of the board of directors, effective immediately. Shea has more than 20 years of business and engineering experience in the storage industry, including tenures as CEO of Gear6 and Mirra, Inc. He has […]

Panasas Picked for SUNY Supercomputing Center

The University at Buffalo  has chosen Panasas ActiveStor Ultra  HPC data storage for the university’s Center for Computational Research (CCR), a supercomputing center serving the 64 campuses of the State Universities of New York (SUNY) network and affiliated partners, including industry. In its announced, the university (UB) said it moved to Panasas because it was challenged by higher […]

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.

Panasas Takes on Tiered HPC Storage Headaches, New Offering Automatically Adapts to Workload Changes

High performance storage vendor Panasas today released Dynamic Data Acceleration on its new PanFS  parallel file system, a software feature designed to overcome inconsistent performance by automatically adapting to changing small file and mixed workloads in HPC and AI application scenarios. According to Panasas, the product alleviates the complexity and manual intervention of tiered HPC […]

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.

Slidecast: The Sad State of Affairs in HPC Storage (But there is light at the end of the tunnel)

In this video, Robert Murphy from Panasas describes the current state of the HPC storage market and how Panasas is stepping up with high performance products that deliver economical performance without risk. “According to a recent study published by Hyperion Research, total cost of ownership (TCO) now rivals performance as a top criterion for purchasing HPC storage systems. Newly retooled with COTS hardware and a unique architecture, Panasas delivers surprising performance at a lower TCO than competitive solutions.”
