The PanView™ and PanMove™ software solutions bring enhanced data management and analytics tools to Panasas storage that improve visibility and portability of precious data assets at organizations deploying high-performance computing (HPC), high-performance data analytics (HPDA), and artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) workloads at scale. “Volumes of unstructured data are growing rapidly today, driven by the increasing convergence of traditional HPC and AI workloads. Our customers need integrated, easy-to-use tools that help them predict and optimize data management. “The PanView and PanMove suite continues the Panasas new product trajectory and gives our customers the control they need over their data – across platforms and in the cloud – to turn data insights into mission-critical actions.” Tom Shea, Panasas President and CEO Two products resulted from a new strategic relationship between Panasas and Atempo, a leading software manufacturer for data protection and data management. Panasas PanView™ Analytics by Atempo is a data management and analytics tool that provides end-users with a simple, consolidated global view of their data across Panasas storage systems as well as comprehensive reporting on storage activity from a single dashboard.

Miria's centralized admin interface tracks the status and provenance of data across all those locations, taking a significant step toward a multi-cloud strategy. "We are excited by this close collaboration between our teams to provide a joint scalable and performant storage solution that is reliable, efficient, and easily managed,” stated Louis Laszlo, VP of Product Management at Atempo. “Miria is an innovative all-in-one data portability solution designed to protect, move, and archive large volumes of data. Miria meets the growing needs of today’s customers and partners who require high performance and scalability. Our combined technologies create a very intelligent and validated data management solution.” “We’re delighted to be working with Atempo to provide our customers with the data mobility and insights they need,” said Jeff Whitaker, VP of Marketing and Product at Panasas. “These new offerings are key additions to our PanFS software suite, and they underscore our continued transformation into a multiplatform, software-first company.

We’re excited to deliver our leading high-performance storage solutions to a broader audience.” Panasas will be demonstrating its diversified software solutions at booth #713 at SuperComputing ‘22 in Dallas, Texas on November 14th – 17th, 2022.
