The Latest Happenings

Panasas Picked for SUNY Supercomputing Center

August 25, 2020
The University at Buffalo has chosen Panasas ActiveStor Ultra HPC data storage for the university’s Center for Computational Research (CCR), a supercomputing center serving the 64 campuses of the State Universities of New York (SUNY) network and affiliated partners, including industry… Learn More


Lowering the Temperature of HPC Storage Tiering

August 24, 2020
Storage in the ever-expanding HPC space has traditionally been based on temperature. The tiering architecture that has arisen has had “hot” data that is frequently accessed is placed in faster storage systems, while “warm” data – that which is accessed less frequently – is put into somewhat slower storage. “Cold,” rarely accessed data is rarely accessed and placed in even slower storage systems. Organizations also have to have policies and software in place to access data and from it one to place to another as needed… Learn More


I Really Don’t Care About TCO … It’s RCO I am Worried About

August 20, 2020
A look at what we are calling Research Cost of Ownership (RCO) and the effect of HPC storage downtime and reduced productivity on the overall scientific mission.

Consistent uptime is critical so researchers can run more experiments, bringing them closer to discovery. But if you can’t get things done in a fast, productive way, then you’re courting failure. This problem is further exacerbated by the fact that many HPC storage technologies are vulnerable to downtime and as a result, negatively impact productivity and slow down progress… Learn More


UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation increases storage capacity to meet demand for COVID research

July 2, 2020
Researchers at the UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation (CMI), have expanded their Panasas high-performance computing (HPC) storage infrastructure with an additional two petabytes (PB) of ActiveStor data storage to support the growing number of I/O-intensive tasks related to COVID-19 research.

In recent months CMI began redirecting many of its efforts to better understand how the human microbiome is involved in the development and severity of COVID-19. Researchers have since been evaluating samples from patients worldwide to find biological and epidemiological discoveries about the SARS-CoV-2 virus… Learn More


BIOS IT Partners with Panasas to Deliver ActiveStor Ultra Turnkey HPC Storage Appliances

May 19, 2020

New Study Exposes Hidden Costs of High-Performance Storage; Downtime and Labor Costs Are Significant Burdens That Risk the Mission

May 6, 2020
Total cost of ownership (TCO) now rivals performance as a top criterion for purchasing high-performance computing (HPC) storage systems, according to an independent study published by Hyperion Research.

While performance still ranked first (57%), TCO tied with purchase price at 37% as the second most important consideration cited by users. This points to an important shift, as HPC storage buyers have historically given less credence to ongoing operating costs, particularly millions of dollars lost due to downtime. Almost half of the surveyed respondents experience storage system failures once a month or more, with some outages leading to downtimes that can last as long as a week. A single day of downtime costs can range from $100,000 to more than $1 million… Learn More


Accelerating HPC Applications with Panasas’ ASCA Intelligent Data Placement Architecture

March 23, 2020
Organizations need to periodically rethink their high-performance storage strategies due to changing requirements for high-performance computing (HPC).

In the past, a lab or corporation might run a limited set of HPC applications. So a system and its storage could be optimized for a narrow set of workloads. Today, HPC workloads in most organizations are highly variable. One group might need to train a machine learning model, another might run very granular finite element simulation models, and yet another might require the lookup and high-speed search of a massive genomics database… Learn More


Solving the storage conundrum to accelerate life science innovation

March 2020
An inability to process large and complex datasets is hindering innovation in life sciences, but change is on the horizon as the sector increasingly makes use of HighPerformance Computing (HPC) technology in a more productive way. The biggest driver towards HPC is the progressively large data sets that researchers are working with that have grown almost exponentially over the last few decades… Learn More


AI is Driving Storage Down New Avenues

January 27, 2020
Storage systems are inherently data intensive. But the rapid emergence of artificial intelligence as a standard datacenter workload has storage vendors scrambling to design platforms that better meet the more stringent performance needs of these applications.

Panasas, one of the few HPC storage specialist that hasn’t been swallowed by a larger IT company, knows a thing or two about how to design for performance. After all, it’s been churning out HPC storage appliances since 1999. But AI and similarly data-intensive codes have thrust the issue of I/O latency to the forefront. Minimizing latency ensures that the system’s most expensive componentry, namely CPUs and GPUs, are kept busy and not sitting idle waiting for data to arrive… Learn More
