With nearly 8.5 petabytes of ActiveStor storage, the Panasas installation at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) represents one of the largest multi-location, high-performance computing (HPC) storage deployments in Great Britain. Panasas ActiveStor gives RAL a solution that offers extreme scalability and simple storage management capabilities so that scientists can focus on important research, not on cumbersome system administration. RAL won the “Public Sector Storage Project of the Year” award for its work done with Panasas ActiveStor at last month’s Storage Virtualization and Cloud...

ATK Aerospace is the world’s top producer of solid rocket propulsion systems and a leading supplier of military and commercial aircraft structures. It built the systems that lifted the Space Shuttle, the Mars rover, and the Hubble Space Telescope into space. ATK engineers use Panasas ActiveStor to speed innovation and reduce cost in its demanding research, and product performance simulation processes.
Supported by its high performance computing (HPC) center used by multiple business units across 12 US locations, ATK’s engineers and scientists employ advanced computer-aided...

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, and Steve Conway, research vice president in IDC's high performance computing group took some time recently to discuss HPC trends and forces affecting storage in the HPC market. The role that pNFS will play in HPC storage is discussed in this first of three video chapters. The role for solid state technology in HPC installations and big data will both be explored in upcoming installments.
