Some of the most powerful supercomputers in the world are helping NASA scientists reveal the mysteries of the universe. The intensive discovery process would not be possible without the modeling and simulation capabilities of high-performance computers, like Pleiades, which is located at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility at Ames Research Center, and Titan, the fastest Read more…
<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Panasas_on_background.bmp” alt=”” width=”120″ height=”79″ />Panasas has launched ActiveStor 14, the company’s fifth-generation storage applicance aimed at high performance computing. The new offering adds solid state drives (SSDs) to what has been almost exclusively a hard disk-based (HDD) NAS storage line-up. The inclusion of SSDs into the company’s flagship offering is further proof that flash memory has become a mainstream storage technology for accelerating HPC workloads.
It takes a super workload management tool to power grid, cluster and on-demand computing environments for computational modeling and simulation applications at NASA. When providing supercomputing resources to 1,500 users, 24/7, workload management is a top priority. PBS Professional workload management software has been used since its inception at NASA.
Today HDS announced that it had acquired NAS vendor Blue Arc.

High performance parallel storage vendor Panasas is eyeing the technical computing and big data markets with the release of its ActiveStore 11 parallel storage system appliance, a step back from 12 that comes with a more balanced storage profile and lower price per terabyte than the performance-driven ActiveStor 12.
DataDirect Networks, king of petascale HPC storage, has decided to expand into the realm of NAS appliances. On Monday, the company launched NAS Scaler, its first network attached storage solution. The new offering is intended to fill a gap in a product lineup that, until now, consisted almost exclusively of ultra-scale, ultra-performance block-level storage.

In the midst of a management and business strategy revamp, Panasas is launching PAS 12, its newest parallel storage system. PAS, which stands for Panasas ActiveStor, is the company’s flagship NAS storage line meant to serve HPC and similar performance-critical enterprise applications. PAS 12 is the fourth generation of the product, and is being touted as “the world’s fastest parallel storage system.”
The wait for parallel NFS drags on, but storage vendors and users see big benefits ahead.
