Bill Ribera

VP of WW Sales & Field Operations

Last month the Panasas team made our way to New Orleans for SC14, this year’s edition of the outstanding annual conference and exhibition that draws professionals from around the world to learn what’s next in HPC and enterprise computing. Organizers chose “HPC Matters” as the year’s theme, and after a week spent talking with the some of the brightest minds in the industry about what high-performance computing is achieving in the real world, I couldn’t think of a more apt way to sum up what I saw and heard.

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.

Panasas is no different here – we are also quick to tell you about the benefits in our ActiveStor platform.
