As data grows, storage should expand quickly and cost-effectively. PanFS® on ActiveStor® Ultra is built on an object back-end that scales limitlessly—offering low total cost of ownership (TCO) and minimal management effort. By delivering faster time to results and accelerating workflows, PanFS on ActiveStor Ultra boosts user productivity.
PanFS platform maintains several types of metadata about files, including typical user-visible information such as owner, size, and modification time.
OSDFS software manages block-level metadata using a delayed allocation scheme in which it batches data, block pointers, and object descriptors into large write operations.
Fully automated online failure recovery protects your data assets. Network-distributed erasure coding and fully parallel rebuilds recover nodes quickly. Background data scrubbing ensures data integrity.
