Disruptive Change in Storage Technologies for Big Data

Garth Gibson

Co-founder and Chief Scientist

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, addresses the ‘Ginormous Systems Conference’, organized  by TTI/Vanguard with a talk titled: Disruptive Change in Storage Technologies for Big Data. Garth tackles the evolution from terabytes to petabytes and on to the promise of exascale computing and how NAND flash is changing the rules along the way. Other topics include parallel file systems, object storage and the challenges of working with both very large and very small data sets in unified systems.

Big Data According to Garth Gibson and IDC

Categories: 

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, and Steve Conway, research vice president in IDC's high performance computing group took some time recently to discuss HPC trends and forces affecting storage in the HPC market. The role that big data plays in HPC storage, now and in future scenarios is discussed in this third and final video in this series.

Massive ActiveStor Deployment at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

Panasas Marketing

With nearly 8.5 petabytes of ActiveStor storage, the Panasas installation at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) represents one of the largest multi-location, high-performance computing (HPC) storage deployments in Great Britain. Panasas ActiveStor gives RAL a solution that offers extreme scalability and simple storage management capabilities so that scientists can focus on important research, not on cumbersome system administration.

ATK Aerospace is the world’s top producer of solid rocket propulsion systems and a leading supplier of military and commercial aircraft structures. It built the systems that lifted the Space Shuttle, the Mars rover, and the Hubble Space Telescope into space.  ATK engineers use Panasas ActiveStor to speed innovation and reduce cost in its demanding research, and product performance simulation processes.

SSDs and Parallel Storage, Part III

Geoffrey Noer

Sr. Director of Product Marketing

Now that we’ve talked about Solid State Disk (SSD) technology and what it’s good and not good for, it’s worth talking about how and why SSD technology is used in our new flagship parallel storage solution, ActiveStor 14.

I recently read a quote from the US secretary of Energy, Steven Chu.

Hadoop - It's Simple with Panasas

A major theme here at Supercomputing 2012 is the use of Hadoop for big data analytics.  In partnership with Hortonworks, Panasas is demonstrating Hadoop running on our recently announced Panasas ActiveStor 14 parallel storage system at Supercomputing 2012, booth 3421.

HPC Storage versus Legacy NAS: a Crazy Comparison

Barbara Murphy

CMO

Browsing one of my favorite channel-focused magazines, CRN, I read with some amusement the comments of Jay Kidd, senior vice-president of product strategy and development at NetApp. Kidd was highlighting one of the major new features of ONTAP 8.1.1 – the nine-year-long integration of Spinnaker Systems’ clustering capabilities.  “In the past we brought Ethernet storage…to the mainstream,” Kidd said. ”Now we are doing the same with clustering. We’re bringing it from the crazy world of high-performance computing to the world of commercial storage.”

Hadoop in the Enterprise?

I recently attended a panel event at the Churchill Club in Silicon Valley (http://www.churchillclub.org). “The Elephant in the Enterprise: What Role Will Hadoop Play?” certainly packed the house. The panel included users and vendors from Facebook, Cloudera, Oracle, MapR, and Metamarkets, each providing very different perspectives on Hadoop’s readiness for the enterprise. . It was interesting to compare the user perspective “…it is no way ready for primetime,” with the vendor perspective being “…of course it’s ready!”

Last year I wrote a blog post that showed how the lack of parallelism in computing was a limiter to innovation.  My post was inspired by a technology article I read in the Economist magazine – http://www.panasas.com/blog/parallelism-goes-mainstream.
