HIGH PERFORMANCE PARALLEL STORAGE

Case Study: CD-adapco

Panasas and CD-adapco - Accelerating engineering simulations to maximize real-life product performance

Comprehensive Storage and Data Management for Research

INTRODUCING ACTIVESTOR 20

65% increase in flash capacity
25% increase in hard drive capacity
45PB and 360GB/s linear scalability

  • With big data workloads pulling high performance computing into the mainstream of the enterprise, customers’ expectations for reliability and availability have increased at a time when traditional data protection has reached its limits. The developments in Panasas ActiveStor 16 and PanFS 6.0 show timely industry leadership in addressing this growing concern and tackling the challenges of reliability and availability at scale.

  • The design claim here is counterintuitive. The larger the system, the more reliable it gets rather than less reliable, which is the norm. If it does what [Panasas] claims, it's a breakthrough. No one else is claiming the bigger the system, the higher the reliability.
