The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) has published a lab report detailing its hands-on evaluation and testing of the Panasas® ActiveStor™ 12 (PAS 12) high performance parallel storage system. The tests examined both system performance and ease of management.
Findings at a Glance
ESG installed, configured, and connected to the system, completing the entire set-up procedure in only minutes.
The testing proceeded with ESG measuring the performance of a single PAS 12 chassis configured with one director blade and ten storage blade modules for a total of 40TB of storage. ESG saw PAS 12 performance to be over 150GB/s per chassis and near-linear performance scaling was confirmed after adding additional storage to the system.
