Panasas ActiveStor Storage Goes to 11
June 20, 2011 | Panasas unveiled the latest version of its ActiveStor storage product line this week at the International Supercomputing Conference in Germany. The ActiveStor 11 product features 3-terabyte (TB) enterprise drives without a price premium. The California company hopes it will prove an attractive offering for life sciences customers in general, and next-generation sequencing (NGS) applications in particular.
Panasas was founded ten years ago and is in its fourth generation of its flagship storage line. The company’s background is in technical computing, and has five years of consecutive revenue growth (42% in 2010) as it pushes into new markets. Traditional verticals include energy, finance/risk analysis, universities, and government/defense, with a strong presence in Europe and Asia as well as North America.
