ActiveStor Director Node

To effectively run high-performance computing applications—the kind that can change the world—you need a powerful brain behind your storage system. The Panasas ActiveStor Director:

  • Orchestrates file system activity outside of the data path, allowing reads/writes to occur in parallel directly between computing clients and Panasas storage nodes.
  • Speeds data transfers but also facilitates scalability.
  • Virtualizes data objects across all available storage nodes, enabling the system to be viewed as a single, easily managed global namespace.
  • Configures the ratio of storage to director nodes to meet the demands of each specific application environment.
