  1. 1. High Performance Scale-Out NAS TOP 10 Reasons to Choose Panasas Storage 1. Unparalleled Application Performance The combination of the Panasas object-based storage architecture and patented PanFS™ operating system delivers the fastest performance in the industry. In real production environments, Panasas storage has achieved 30GB/sec bandwidth performance. 2. Massive Scalability Storage capacity can be quickly and easily added and configured in less than 30 minutes. As capacity is added, system bandwidth scales linearly providing seamless scalability. 3. Lowest TCO Panasas storage systems give organizations easy to use, appliance-like management of a virtually boundless storage system. Competitive products require over twice the floor space to achieve comparable performance and scalability levels. The patented PanFS™ storage operating system provides a single namespace and mount point that reduces administrative complexity—saving time and money. 4. Superior Large-Scale Reliability With Panasas Storage there is no single point of failure and high availability software provide automated failover for maximizing uptime. In addition, Panasas’ unique Tiered Parity architecture delivers a comprehensive and scalable solution for data reliability and integrity that is unmatched by any other storage vendor. 5.
