Client-Side Architecture for High-Performance Storage

Panasas® DirectFlow® client software runs as a loadable file system module inside the kernel of the client operating system, as well as within the Panasas PanFS® platform. Because the client-side kernel implements a standard virtual file system interface, clients can access the PanFS operating environment as a standards-compliant Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) file system. The protocol parallelizes throughput and performance for large Linux cluster farms and other client platforms.
