Versant, Panasas partner to deliver database and storage for application developers

To address database and storage requirements found in HPC applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Versant, a provider of data management software, and Panasas, a provider of performance-intensive applications, have entered into a partnership to enhance database and storage performance for high-end application developers.

The companies said that the combined platform addresses the database and storage requirements found in high performance computing applications, especially for financial services, modeling and simulation, and complex telecommunication network management.

Under the partnership, Panasas provides parallel access to storage with high concurrency that allows customers of both Panasas and Versant to build new applications for life sciences, financial services and satellite imaging. The Versant Object Database allows these applications to be built quickly, while Panasas provides the storage I/O and scalability to achieve a customer’s performance targets.

Reportedly, Versant Object Database for data storage brings advantages to applications that use C++, Java and .NET object models, have high concurrency requirements and large data sets. It is designed to handle the navigational access, data distribution, and enterprise scale required by these applications. Panasas’s ActiveStor system is based on PanFS Parallel File System and the architecture enables multiple parallel data paths between computing nodes and Panasas ActiveStor storage.
