  1. 1. PAS HC High Capacity Scale-Out NAS The Panasas family of scale-out NAS solutions enable enterprise customers to rapidly solve complex computing problems, speed innovation and bring new KEY FEATURES products to market faster. The PAS HC is a multi-petabyte scale-out NAS solution • Outstanding Performance: designed for managing massive amounts of data and delivering the highest levels throughput performance ranging from 2 GB/sec to over 160 GB/ of performance, scalability and manageability. The PAS HC is an ideal solution for sec. organizations requiring scalability, cost efficiency, and performance to capture and • Massive Scalability: high store huge amounts of data for technical applications. PAS HC’s efficient design density, small footprint with almost provides nearly one PB of raw capacity in a single floor tile-sized footprint, and 1 PB of storage per rack. Modular capacity can be added without disruption to create vast, multi-petabyte storage architecture ensures capacity can be added without disruption. pools. • Superior Manageability: fast setup and configuration. Utilizing the patented PanFS™ storage operating system, PAS HC complements the Dramatically reduces entire PAS family of scale-out NAS solutions to create a single pool of storage under administration overhead, and a global namespace. This provides customers with the flexibility to support multiple lowers TCO. applications and workflows in a single storage system, blazing performance for complex technical applications and massive capacity to store the results for future USE CASES analysis. Eliminating multiple islands of storage dramatically reduces system cost and complexity. • Research: High density data repository to manage massive amounts of data for research labs Leaders worldwide rely on Panasas storage systems to: associated with the Department of Energy to manage the nation’s • Improve time-to-market • Protect critical data nuclear weapons stockpile and simulating their effectiveness. In • Extend research, science, and knowledge • Minimize risk for better returns this particular use case, PAS HC • Deliver unprecedented ROI • Improve predictability delivers over 10 petabytes of user • Solve critical and complex problems at lower cost available storage and 160 GB/s of sustained parallel file system bandwidth. • Energy: Seismic Processing, Performance Migration and Interpretation, The PAS HC features the latest generation Intel® Nehalem microarchitecture Reservoir Simulation technology, delivering industry leading bandwidth and processing capability. The • Bio/Pharmaceutical: recently updated 64 bit PanFS operating environment provides enhanced throughput BioInformatics, Computational and processing speed of internal PAS HC operations. These and other improvements Chemistry, Molecular Modeling including faster memory, multi-core tuning, and 64 Gb/s Fibre Channel backend • Industrial Manufacturing: EDA capacity result in ground-breaking throughput performance ranging anywhere from 2 Simulation, Optical Correction, Thermal Mechanics GB/s to over 160 GB/s. Scalability The PAS HC provides ultra-high scalability through one of the highest density, space-saving packages available, providing almost one Petabyte of storage per rack. The PanFS operating system provides a global namespace and a single pool of storage that scales throughput and capacity symmetrically. The PAS HC also 1-888-panasas www.panasas.com
  2. 2. Panasas: Accelerating Time to Results TM provides RAID 6 dual parity protection, guarding against dual disk failures that could affect data availability. PAS HC’s modular architecture allows for simple removal or replacement of components, and capacity can be added without disruption. Manageability PAS HC’s ultra-high density design saves valuable data center space, and system management is comprehensive and easy to use. PAS HC provides fast set up and configuration utilities that allow storage capacity to be added and available in less than 15 minutes. In addition, PAS HC provides redundant load-sharing controls, power and cooling that automatically and transparently transition to redundant resources in the event of a malfunction. A single mount point and administrative interface avoids the incremental system administration that burdens competitive storage alternatives, dramatically reducing administration overhead and provides a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
