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 compute 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.
