The Data Foundation Government Agencies Can Trust

The high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence, and machine learning (AI/ML)
workflows deployed across federal agencies demand a modern HPC storage platform that can
easily adapt to diverse application types and dynamically changing workload patterns. Agencies
need solutions that provide frustration-free management, 24/7/365 data availability, and a wide
performance profile – all at a reasonable price point.

At Panasas, we’ve designed the data foundation that delivers on all fronts. For over 24 years, we
have partnered with world-leading organizations across the United States and allied countries to
power their most demanding workloads.


Bringing Security to High Performance Computing: Using Thales Enterprise Key Management for Panasas PanFS Encryption

Whether used to understand complex climate and weather forces or analyze defense and military intelligence data, high performance computing (HPC) systems store and manage massive volumes of data. HPC data is often sensitive and needs to be protected from unauthorized access – both from within the organization and without.

The best way to protect HPC data is to encrypt it. However, encrypting large volumes of data can generate large numbers of encryption keys, key stores and access policies. This creates a significant administrative burden to manage both the encryption and the associated key lifecycles.

Fortunately, Panasas and Thales have teamed together to offer customers a secure option for HPC systems.

Safeguarding HPC Storage and Customer Data with PanFS

Now in its 9th generation, PanFS® — the Panasas parallel file system — delivers the highest performance among competitive HPC storage systems at any capacity, and takes the complexity and unreliability of typical high-performance computing (HPC) storage systems off your hands, and it does so using commodity hardware at competitive price points.

PanFS orchestrates multiple computers into a single entity that serves your data to your compute cluster. Through sophisticated software, multiple computers that each have HDDs and/or SSDs attached to them will work together to provide hundreds of Gigabytes per second (GB/s) of data being read and written by your HPC applications.

Panasas PanFS and Thales TCT CipherTrust Manager

The management and security of the encryption keys that enable data at rest encryption is paramount. Panasas PanFS integrates with Thales TCT CipherTrust Manger to mitigate the threat of unauthorized access to encrypted data. CipherTrust Manager provides role-based access control to keys and policies, multi-tenancy support, and robust auditing and reporting of all key management and encryption operations.



Accelerating Financial Services with High Performance Parallel Storage

ActiveStor® Ultra with PanFS® is Panasas’ latest and most adaptable, total performance HPC storage system. PanFS combines a distributed and clustered parallel file system into an integrated platform to deliver predictable high performance that automatically adapts to financial services workloads. What’s more, Panasas ActiveStor Ultra has the enterprise-class reliability, ease of management, and great support other parallel file systems simply can’t match.
