Panasas®, the data engine for innovation, today announced the general availability of PanView™ and PanMove,™ the company’s software products designed to improve data visibility and mobility at organisations deploying high performance computing (HPC), high performance data analytics (HPDA), and artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) workloads at scale. Panasas PanMove tools allow end-users to seamlessly copy, move, and sync data between all Panasas ActiveStor® platforms and AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud object storage, and Panasas PanView tools provide comprehensive visualisation reports for smarter data management practices.
As additions to the Panasas PanFS® parallel file system software suite, the new PanMove and PanView data movement and analytics tools strengthen Panasas’ position as a stand-out storage platform in the fast-growing HPC and AI/ML marketplace.
The general availability of the PanView and PanMove tools coincides with the recent PanFS 9.3.1 release, which brings updates and performance enhancements to Panasas storage environments. The additional software tools are the result of a collaboration between Panasas and Atempo, a leading software manufacturer for data management and data protection.
The Panasas PanMove software package provides organisations with fast and secure data mobility between multiple data locations. It includes PanMove Sync, a state-of-the-art parallel version of rsync for Posix to Posix data movement, and PanMove Advanced by Atempo, a data movement and protection tool that offers a simple GUI to move, copy, and sync data between PanFS-based systems and extends to cloud and local S3-compatible object targets. When combined with the add-on Panasas PanMove Backup and Archive licenses, the PanMove suite supports a complete data lifecycle for all HPC and AI environments.
The Panasas PanView software package helps organisations control infrastructure access and costs by analysing data usage, footprint, and utilisation. It includes PanView Essentials for native Panasas fast scan technology that supports storage profiling and forecasting. It also includes PanView Analytics, powered by Atempo, which delivers a consolidated global view of data and comprehensive insights into activity from a single dashboard for a holistic view of the storage environment.
