Panasas Boosts Performance

FREMONT, Calif. -- Panasas, Inc., the leader in
parallel storage solutions for high-performance computing (HPC)
environments, today announced Panasas DirectConnect10, a new 10 Gigabit
Ethernet connectivity solution that increases the performance of Panasas
ActiveStor Parallel Storage Clusters by more than 50 percent. Panasas
DirectConnect10 increases bandwidth from a single ActiveStor storage shelf
to well in excess of 500MB/s. The Panasas DirectConnect10 option now
provides customers the flexibility to connect Panasas Parallel Storage
Clusters directly into their 10GigE switching infrastructure, which will
significantly improve time to results and accelerate product development.

Panasas is scheduled to exhibit the new 10GigE solution at the
Supercomputing 2007 (SC07) show in Reno, where it will showcase performance
in excess of 2 GB/s out of just four Panasas storage shelves. These shelves
are connected via Force10 S50 switches into 20 Linux-based servers from
Penguin Computing. Panasas is exhibiting at booth number 1037.

"We've been working closely with Panasas for many years to provide an
integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching and storage solution to our joint
customers, who care most about performance and reliability," said Eric Tom,
vice president of corporate and business development at Force10 Networks.
"For HPC environments that need to maximize application performance and
uptime, the combination of Panasas and Force10 provides an ideal solution."
