Panasas announces Accelerate award winners

Annual award recognises leading resellers for their significant contributions to growth and market expansion.

Panasas has announced the winners of its 2018 Panasas Accelerate Partner of the Year awards. The annual awards recognise leading resellers of the ActiveStor scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) solution for their exceptional contributions to winning new business, for their year-over-year growth and for expanding Panasas’ global customer base in key industry verticals.

“Our partners around the world play an essential role in delivering the Panasas customer experience, and it gives me great pleasure to recognise their accomplishments,” said Philip Crocker, senior director of global channel marketing and business development at Panasas. “2019 promises to be a groundbreaking year with the introduction of ActiveStor® Ultra featuring PanFS® 8, a completely reengineered portable file system that runs on industry-standard hardware. I’m looking forward to working with our partners as we expand our global customer base and seize the new market opportunities addressed by this highly competitive product.”

The ease of use of PanFS, combined with the performance and cost efficiency of ActiveStor, create a very attractive value proposition for both commercial and traditional HPC applications. Designed for extreme performance and scalability configurations, ActiveStor Ultra is ideally suited for applications that require the processing of large and complex data sets with high precision, such as climate modeling, computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation and analysis, energy exploration and precision medicine, as well as for emerging workloads such as AI and autonomous driving. PanFS 8, the intelligent parallel file system, can run on any properly configured and qualified commodity storage hardware, allowing for rapid adoption of new hardware capabilities and an expanded portfolio of hardware options.
