Data Protection: A Topic Most Storage Vendors Prefer to Avoid

Geoffrey Noer

VP of Product Management

Having built a good portion of my career in the storage industry, it’s clear to me that storage vendors generally just don’t like talking about some topics. Companies aren’t shy to brag about storage throughput or IOPS performance, their attractive price per terabyte, or how their product is so easy to use. Panasas is no different here – we are also quick to tell you about the benefits in our ActiveStor platform.

Supercomputing and the Enterprise: Talking Reliability at ISC’14

Bill Ribera

VP of WW Sales & Field Operations

Another week – another big European trade show!

In late June, the Panasas team had the pleasure of participating in ISC’14: the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig. The show hosted a solid turnout of professionals from enterprise and research institutions as well as industry media and analysts, all there to take a deep dive into the trends and technologies that are driving this accelerating field. I daresay they were not disappointed!

Faye Pairman

President and CEO

Along with the official start of summer in California, June marked a significant step forward for our hybrid scale-out NAS product line.  This month, we announced ActiveStor 16 with PanFS 6.0 and RAID 6+ data protection. This powerful combination yields a high-density platform and industry-leading reliability at scale while ensuring the manageability and performance that are essential for big data deployments.

There’s no question that this is a big announcement: not only have we announced our new flagship platform ActiveStor 16 but we also announced PanFS 6.0, the biggest step forward for our storage operating system in many years.

Change is the Only Constant at Bio-IT World

Bill Ribera

VP of WW Sales & Field Operations

Our team recently returned from Boston, where Panasas was an exhibitor at the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo put on by Cambridge Healthtech Institute. As always it was a rich, informative event and in many ways, an annual bellwether for the state of research technology in the biosciences. Panasas has participated in Bio-IT World for several years and I think that gives us a unique perspective on the evolution of this growing market.

Bill Ribera

VP of WW Sales & Field Operations

With more than 98,000 in attendance, this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show certainly lived up to its billing as the world’s largest business-to-business media and entertainment event! I had the pleasure of joining my Panasas colleagues for what seemed like a non-stop parade of visitors looking for a better Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution for their creative and post-production workloads, along with current Panasas customers hoping for their first look at our new PanFS 5.5 operating system.

PanFS 5.5: Delivering Enterprise Grade Windows Support

Geoffrey Noer

VP of Product Management

Enterprise grade Windows support for technical computing? Are you crazy? Everybody in this space runs Linux!

Yes, I know, the compute clusters used for technical research and enterprise workloads pretty much all run Linux. After all, that’s why we originally created DirectFlow® - to maximize aggregate I/O performance and successfully handle thousands of concurrent compute nodes.
