Massive ActiveStor Deployment at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory


Panasas Marketing

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.

HPC ≠ Complex and Unreliable!

Barbara Murphy


Utah State University (USU) is bucking the trend of many universities who are leveraging the high performance computing (HPC) facilities at national laboratories for research, paying on a per-use basis, rather than maintaining their own HPC centers.  Using national labs could potentially eliminate on-going capital equipment investment along with the associated operating and maintenance expenses, and is a good way to gain experience in HPC.  However, as the system demand grows, the work of planning research around available cycles on other systems brings its own set of challenges.&

3M Deploys SGI/Panasas Private Cloud Solution

Geoffrey Noer

Sr. Director of Product Marketing

Intel recently published a case study on a recent cloud deployment at 3M that is worth a read as it is a particularly good example of how Panasas® ActiveStor™ can be profitably used for manufacturing workloads in a private cloud context. SGI is a valued Panasas partner and is in a strong position when it comes to offering a total solution to overcome big data challenges.

2011 Recap

Faye Pairman

President and CEO

2011 was a year of investing and building for Panasas as we prepared for continued success in the coming year. I want to take the time, before the year winds down to thank our employees, our partners, and most importantly our customers for a great 2011 and in so doing, I would like to remind all of us of some of our 2011 highlights:

Performance + Private Cloud = Panasas


Panasas Marketing

Analyst firm, Intersect360 Research, has released a new white paper, “Solving Big Data Problems with Private Cloud Storage,” in which it describes Panasas as well-positioned to provide storage solutions for HPC private storage clouds.

Cloud Computing with Parallel Storage

Barbara Murphy


Panasas co-founder and CTO, Garth Gibson, talks about the evolution of cloud computing with parallel file systems and high performance storage. He discusses advances in data center manageability with new tools to support a wider range of user needs on different operating systems and on virtual machines. He points out that the notion of the ability of users to manage their own gear better makes cloud computing especially compelling.
