Panasas has announced new data insight and mobility products joining the company’s PanFS software suite. The PanView and PanMove software solutions bring enhanced data management and analytics tools to Panasas storage, that improve visibility and portability of precious data assets for organisations deploying high-performance computing (HPC), high-performance data analytics (HPDA), and artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) workloads at scale.
“Volumes of unstructured data are growing rapidly today, driven by the increasing convergence of traditional HPC and AI workloads. Our customers need integrated, easy-to-use tools that help them predict and optimise data management,” said Tom Shea, Panasas President and CEO. “The PanView and PanMove suite continues the Panasas new product trajectory and gives our customers the control they need over their data – across platforms and in the cloud – to turn data insights into mission-critical actions.”
Two products resulted from a new strategic relationship between Panasas and Atempo, a software manufacturer for data protection and data management. Panasas PanView Analytics by Atempo is a data management and analytics tool that provides end-users with a simple, consolidated global view of their data across Panasas storage systems as well as comprehensive reporting on storage activity from a single dashboard.
Panasas PanMove Advanced by Atempo is a data movement and protection tool that expands Panasas’ reliability to reach beyond a single storage cluster. PanMove enables end-users to move large volumes of data easily and reliably between different Panasas ActiveStor systems, locally and across geographic distances. Data can also be moved between PanFS storage environments and S3 object stores, whether in public or private clouds, or on-prem solutions.
When paired with Atempo’s Miria products, end-users can extend this protection, synchronisation and replication even further, to backup and archive targets such as tape and tape robotics as well as Azure and Google cloud object storage. Miria’s centralised admin interface tracks the status and provenance of data across all those locations, taking a significant step toward a multi-cloud strategy.
“We are excited by this close collaboration between our teams to provide a joint scalable and performant storage solution that is reliable, efficient and easily managed,” stated Louis Laszlo, VP of Product Management at Atempo. “Miria is an innovative all-in-one data portability solution designed to protect, move and archive large volumes of data. Miria meets the growing needs of today’s customers and partners who require high performance and scalability. Our combined technologies create a very intelligent and validated data management solution.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Atempo to provide our customers with the data mobility and insights they need,” said Jeff Whitaker, VP of Marketing and Product at Panasas. “These new offerings are key additions to our PanFS software suite, and they underscore our continued transformation into a multiplatform, software-first company. With an expanding family of software products and our ActiveStor platforms – all focused squarely on reliability and high performance at scale – we are better addressing the needs of the converging HPC, HPDA and AI/ML market. We’re excited to deliver our leading high-performance storage solutions to a broader audience.”
