SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasas, Inc., the leader in high performance parallel storage for technical computing applications and big data workloads, will showcase the recently announced ActiveStor 14 parallel storage system running high-performance Hadoop workloads at the Supercomputing 2012 (SC12) Conference and Exhibition in Salt Lake City, Nov. 12 – 15 in booth 3421. The highly scalable ActiveStor 14 extends performance leadership to a broader set of workloads by delivering industry-best performance for large and small files and now provides Hadoop support to maximize value from business data.
"As companies increasingly integrate HPC capabilities into commercial environments, the need for a single platform that can process a variety of mixed workloads is essential," said Faye Pairman, president and CEO of Panasas. "With today's announcement, Panasas ActiveStor not only accelerates product design and scientific discovery applications, but will perform seamless Hadoop analyses, ensuring that customers can extract maximum value from their existing big data infrastructure."
This will result in big savings to those Panasas customers wishing to leverage existing infrastructure for new analytics workloads, with no performance penalty. Internal testing using standard Hadoop benchmarks has shown that ActiveStor 14T performs 30 percent faster than a local disk implementation.
