Optimize Manufacturing

It’s more than storage—it’s your design perfected

Run Simulations Faster

Simulation tools, such as multidisciplinary design exploration, are disrupting design workflows for products as diverse as Formula One race cars, jet engines, and chips for smartphones. These sophisticated new applications generate huge volumes of test data that can overwhelm legacy storage systems—degrading performance and reducing productivity.

Automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, and other manufacturing industries face a number of challenges: reducing design cycle time and cost; satisfying global safety regulation and environmental concerns; and responding to customers who demand high-quality and well-designed products.

The Panasas® ActiveStor® solution provides unified storage infrastructure to improve workflow efficiencies for computer-aided engineering (CAE) and electric design automation tools, critical for the design and product development process.

To get the most from your investment in simulation tools, upgrade to the ultrafast streaming performance, true linear scalability, and enterprise-grade reliability of the Panasas ActiveStor storage appliance.
