All Storage Architectures Are Not Equal

Consistent HPC uptime is critical in the Life Sciences. Architecture determines how data is accessed, how quickly and with what risk. Processing speed can literally change the rules of scientific discovery.

Read the datasheet to learn which parallel file systems deliver the greatest chance of success across these variables:

  • Resource requirements to purchase and maintain HPC
  • Measurable costs of system downtime and recovery
  • Reduced productivity from infrastructure failures
  • The immense cost to discovery if storage issues persist

PanFS’ newly enhanced architecture consistently delivers more adaptability and performance than any major competitor. In fact, it’s all hot   – all the time – no tuning or tiering required. What HPC storage system could be better than that? None.

Dynamic Data Acceleration

Pressures on Life Science Researchers and Research IT are immense. When you factor in exponentially growing data demands, aging storage systems, and overworked staff, it may seem that downtime and data loss are inevitable.

Panasas systems are built with several data protection features – with less expense and more performance:

  • Parallel Architecture means no NAS heads and no redundant backup purchases
  • Data Nodes are dedicated to metadata processing and storage, and allow erasure coding
  • Automatic passive and active balancing to add storage without retuning
  • Linear scalability in rebuild speed and data performance.

Scale up Storage With No Downside

Life sciences organizations are facing an exponential increase of data prompted by advances in imaging technologies and growing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. At the same time, you need your staff to be focus on supporting research partners and less on maintaining storage systems.

Panasas offers a superior solution for seamless data management and scaling:

  • NVMe, SSD, and HDDs included in all systems, seamlessly managed to optimize your metadata, small file, and large file data placement
  • Automatic passive and active balancing to add storage without retuning
  • Parallel and direct file storage to maximize performance, and a range of devices to support mixed workloads
  • File-level protection to speed up rebuild after failure, increasing data availability and reliability as you expand.
