Faster, More Accurate Quantitative Analysis
The financial services industry collects and analyzes enormous sets of data using state-of-the-art computational tools and techniques involving mathematical and statistical modeling, machine learning, and big data analytics. This enables investment banks, brokerage firms, exchanges, and government finance agencies to deliver leading-edge financial models and strategies.
Investment and trading firms, and government agencies have deployed thousands of compute nodes and petabytes of storage in high-performance computing (HPC) data centers to meet increasing accuracy and reduced testing times requirements. Today, those resources are under strain as storage bottlenecks are exposed.
ActiveStor® Ultra with PanFS® is Panasas’ latest and most adaptable, total-performance HPC storage system and combines a distributed and clustered parallel file system, volume manager, and software-based erasure-coding data protection into an integrated appliance platform. It provides incredibly fast parallel and direct access from many clients to and from storage devices reducing testing times and allowing more accurate strategies.
