Bigger Workloads, Bigger Challenges: The Graphics Industry Comes to SIGGRAPH for Solutions

Bill Ribera

VP of WW Sales & Field Operations

Earlier this month the Panasas team trekked to Vancouver, B.C. for the 41st SIGGRAPH conference and exhibition. According to organizers, this year’s gathering hosted more than 14,000 attendees from 75 countries – truly an international event and an unparalleled setting to learn more about the opportunities and challenges that are driving graphics development and video, film and video game production today.

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!

ActiveStor 16: Observers React to Reliability at Scale with RAID 6+

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.   

Panasas and ActiveStor 16 Get Geophysical at EAGE 14

Earlier this month, scientists and business leaders from the oil and gas industry came together in Amsterdam at the annual EAGE Conference and Exhibition to discuss trends and technologies in energy exploration. We were pleased to again exhibit and support this event.

Introducing ActiveStor 16 and PanFS 6.0

Geoffrey Noer

VP of Product Management

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.

Celebrating 25 Years of Using Erasure Codes to Implement RAID

Geoffrey Noer

VP of Product Management

Happy birthday, RAID!  Twenty-five years ago, in March 1988, Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, published the paper “A Case for Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID)” with co-authors David Patterson and Randy Katz, inventing a concept that would prove central to the storage industry for decades to come. Congratulations to all three of these storage visionaries!

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, talks about the market trends that led him to develop RAID, in this final installment of our History of RAID series.  Garth drills down into the driving factors of both hardware and software RAID; why hardware RAID led the day at first, and why software RAID dominates the landscape today.  He concludes this series by mapping out the future of data availability and redundancy while clearly asserting that the RAID concepts will be the underpinning of reliable data storage going forward.

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, reminisces about his game changing work with RAID in part II of this History of RAID series. He discusses the many technology advances that RAID has fueled since he introduced it in the famous “Berkeley RAID Paper.” He explains that what he and his co-authors were trying to do in the beginning was to make computers faster by making them more parallel. He talks about redundancy and how that important notion evolved.
