Panasas file system PanFS optimized for HPC storage

Storage without bottleneck

September 27, 2021

The Panasas file system PanFS is unusual in many respects. The parallel file system for object storage has neither an API to AWS S3, as is now widely offered, nor data compression, which is also standard. But according to Curtis Anderson, Panasas software architect, the system is optimized for fast data access, even in the context of mixed workloads (HPC/AI), and is designed to reduce operating costs while reliably maintaining high performance.

The next bright idea

When it comes to the data storage industry, is there any scope left for real innovation? Storage magazine gathered the thoughts of a selection of industry leaders

September 14, 2021

Over the past nine decades, the storage industry has brought to market numerous ground-breaking technologies and architectures – many of which are still in use today, years after they first appeared on the market. Every day, vendors announce new products that seemingly offer something different from the myriad of competing solutions already available; but are these simple updates to existing technologies, with a few tweaks and additions? Or are they truly original? At a time when so much has already been developed, can data storage vendors still be innovative?
