Top 5 Reasons Why the PanFS Data Engine Tops Lustre


01 PhD in Lustre Not Required

While Lustre is an open-source parallel file system, for practical purposes, it is currently only supported by Whamcloud, a division of DDN that sells Lustre-based systems. This means that rolling your own Lustre storage solution requires a dedicated team of specialists who effectively do their own tech support, which can end up costing more than an additional $300K a year. Bringup times on new Lustre installations also vary widely, ranging from a week in the best cases to several months in the worst ones.

Panasas ActiveStor® systems running the PanFS® parallel file system roll in pre-configured, with bringup times consistently being just one or two days. Panasas solutions are so easy to deploy, operate, and maintain that a single IT admin with no specialized expertise can oversee a PanFS storage environment, or realm, of any size. Our 24/7 world-class customer support means that you get our undivided attention the moment you need it. You save time, gain productivity, and enjoy a significantly lower TCO in the long run.
