Disruptive Change in Storage Technologies for Big Data

Garth Gibson

Co-founder and Chief Scientist

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, addresses the ‘Ginormous Systems Conference’, organized  by TTI/Vanguard with a talk titled: Disruptive Change in Storage Technologies for Big Data. Garth tackles the evolution from terabytes to petabytes and on to the promise of exascale computing and how NAND flash is changing the rules along the way. Other topics include parallel file systems, object storage and the challenges of working with both very large and very small data sets in unified systems.

Intel's Whamcloud Acquisition

Intel’s recent acquisition of Whamcloud occurred with little media fanfare.  Whamcloud is the main development arm for the open source Lustre file system, and provides support contracts for existing Lustre installations.  On the surface this sounds like an unusual move for Intel, given that it has traditionally maintained a neutral position on file systems and is not in the support business.

Panasas hosted an event at Supercomputing 2011 (SC11) which featured an august industry panel that discussed “the road to exascale.” The panelists: Panasas founder and CTO, Garth Gibson; Deputy Division Leader, HPC Division at LANL, Gary Grider; Chief Executive Officer and CTO of Instrumental, Inc., Henry Newman; and Addison Snell, Chief Executive Officer of Intersect360 Research,  explored the hard work that is being done to make exascale a reality. They discussed (among other topics):

Panasas captured headlines in 2008 when Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) deployed Panasas® ActiveStor® as the primary storage for Roadrunner, the world's first petascale supercomputer. Now, as institutions turn their sights to exascale computing, Panasas co-founder and CTO, Dr. Garth Gibson, explores the storage system capabilities that will be needed to deliver the required 70TB/s bandwidth while meeting the U.S. government’s 2018 target timeframe.
