Twice as fast as Lustre, BeeGFS and GPFS
Panasas ActiveStor Ultra HPC storage with the PanFS parallel file system is 2X faster than Lustre, BeeGFS and GPFS, without their notorious complexity and brittleness. Performance and capacity scale linearly without limitation, and performance adapts to dynamically changing workloads and is consistently fast, regardless of workload complexity.
Easiest management, best reliability and uptime at the lowest TCO
PanFS on ActiveStor combines the industry’s leading price-performance with easy manageability at the lowest total cost of ownership of any HPC storage solution. Fully automated online failure recovery protects your data assets. Network-distributed erasure coding and fully parallel rebuilds recover nodes quickly. Background data scrubbing ensures data integrity throughout the lifecycle.
Adaptive Small Component Acceleration (ASCA)
Panasas’ unique ASCA architecture is what makes ActiveStor so fast. Small files are stored on low- latency flash SSDs and large files are stored on low-cost, high-capacity, high-bandwidth HDDs. ASCA provides a single “all-hot” tier for instant access to files no matter where they are in the data lifecycle, with no latency to re-migrate data to a flash tier as all other parallel file systems have to do. ASCA enables ActiveStor to deliver predictable and scalable performance, no matter what the workload.
