PanFS on ActiveStor Ultra features Dynamic Data Acceleration, a proprietary software feature that delivers predictable high performance by automatically adapting to the changing and evolving small file and mixed workloads in HPC and AI. Dynamic Data Acceleration eliminates the complexity and manual intervention of tiered HPC storage systems by maximizing the efficiency of all storage media in a seamless, total-performance system that automatically adapts to changing file sizes and workloads.
In this integrated system, NVMe SSDs store metadata, low-latency SSDs store small files, and large files are stored on low-cost, high-bandwidth HDDs. By dynamically managing the movement of files between SSD and HDD, and maximizing the full potential of NVMe, PanFS delivers the highest possible performance at the lowest cost for HPC and AI workflows.
“Supporting the high-performance computing needs of a group as diverse as faculty, staff and students – as well as local business and industrial partners – is a massive task, and the University at Buffalo and its Center for Computational Research are meeting that challenge every day,” said Jim Donovan, chief marketing officer at Panasas. “At Panasas, we believe storage technology should support innovation with a seamless and uninterrupted experience that optimizes productivity and time-to-quality outcome. We are proud to support UB and its mission of academic excellence.”
