Academic Research

The challenge in building an IT infrastructure for universities and other institutions for higher learning and research is ensuring uptime for a broad range of end users as well as managing the diverse data-intensive applications and workflows demanded of the system. Applications often span many scientific and engineering disciplines run in a private cloud, so that the optimal storage infrastructure must be successful in addressing a variety of algorithms and I/O demands.

Panasas® ActiveStor™ scale-out NAS appliances provide the necessary scalability in storage bandwidth and random I/O to accelerate throughput for a wide range of demanding data-intensive applications in the world’s higher education environments. One of the system’s key advantages is that it provides a scalable namespace permitting workflows to generate multi-terabyte datasets within a single shared file system. These datasets may be effectively shared across high performance, campus-wide and global grid computing environments to make research datasets available for scientific and engineering collaboration.
