HAMBURG, Germany, June 22 -- Panasas, Inc., the leading provider of high-performance storage for the world's most performance-intensive applications, today announced that it has begun shipping a new software release that increases data protection capabilities and overall application performance for data-intensive enterprises. Available on all new shipping ActiveStor Series 7 and 8 systems, and also as a free upgrade to existing Panasas customers, the new capabilities are being showcased at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Hamburg, Germany this week.
"We're very pleased with our new Panasas system," said Colin Bannister, University of Nottingham, UK. "As well as being easy to manage, the Panasas solution delivers excellent performance, even on our most data-intensive applications. We are also extremely impressed with the level of support that we have received from Panasas."
"With this new release, Panasas has expanded its features and performance to provide high-performance storage solutions for a broader range of scientific and technical workloads," said Nick Sundby, Storage and Systems research analyst at IDC Europe.
The new Panasas features and enhancements build upon the success of existing Panasas deployments that are serving data to over 500,000 clients in 35 countries. Panasas provides a distinctive, object-based file system environment, with unique features such as automatic provisioning which allows users to add new capacity and performance with zero loss in productivity.
The new release includes the following enhancements:
Panasas, Inc., the leading provider of high-performance storage for the world's most performance-intensive applications, helps commercial, government and academic organizations accelerate their time to results, leading to real-world breakthroughs that improve people's lives. Panasas high-performance storage systems enable customers to maximize the benefits of high-performance computers and clusters by eliminating the storage bottleneck created with legacy network storage technologies. Panasas ActiveStor Parallel Storage Clusters, in conjunction with the PanFS parallel file system, offer the most comprehensive portfolio of high-performance storage solutions for compute-intensive environments.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
