Panasas® SiteSync™ Provides the Scale-Out Answer for Big Data Replication
SUNNYVALE, California, Nov. 13, 2014 – Panasas, the leader in hybrid scale-out NAS for technical computing and enterprise environments, today announced SiteSync, a high-speed, parallel replication and file transfer solution that solves the challenge of moving massive data sets across the LAN quickly and with ease. Designed for use with the Panasas ActiveStor® high-performance hybrid storage appliance, the powerful new SiteSync software can replicate data up to 10x faster than conventional file transfer utilities. SiteSync provides customers with extremely fast and flexible parallel data migration and synchronization for disaster recovery, disk-to-disk backup and remote archive applications.
“SiteSync is the scale-out answer to big data replication,” said Geoffrey Noer, vice president of product management at Panasas. “Traditional approaches were not designed to transfer large quantities of unstructured data. SiteSync solves this problem by delivering unmatched performance at scale, enabling IT organizations to migrate even their biggest data stores quickly and easily.”
Optimized for high-speed data replication and synchronization across the LAN, SiteSync provides reliable, high-performance data transfer capabilities. Panasas customers upgrading to PanFS 6.0 with RAID 6+, or transferring data to or from third party storage systems, will significantly benefit from SiteSync’s parallel migration capabilities. SiteSync is available now to Panasas customers using ActiveStor systems with the PanFS 6.0 operating system.
Panasas will demonstrate its ActiveStor 16 appliance at the Supercomputing Conference (SC14) November 17 through 20 in booth 2657. To request an appointment at the event, visit http://performance.panasas.com/SC14-meeting-request.html.
