Built for Efficient Consolidation
Pantera Clustered NAS filers are built using a specialized, network processor based architecture which maximizes data throughput with low latencies even under high workloads. Designed specifically for efficient data movement, the filer's network processors deliver high performance with low power consumption and heat dissipation. Pantera clustered NAS filers are the industry's most energy-efficient, eco-friendly network storage solutions.
Pantera lets you start with an affordable entry configuration then scale seamlessly as requirements grow. In a full configuration, Pantera Clustered NAS scales up to 10 petabytes of storage, deliver throughput up to 2.5GB per second, and accommodate simultaneous data access from up to 64,000 user connections.
Scaling Performance and Capacity independently
Whether you need exceptional throughput for high performance applications or large capacity for a data archive, Pantera's fully modular architecture lets you add performance and capacity when you need it, in minutes. Advanced features such as non-stop cluster management and automated storage provisioning enable Pantera filer heads and disk subsystems to be added independently so you can scale capacity or performance to match application requirements. ONStor EverON StorFS file system supports dynamic addition of capacity to meet the continually changing needs of enterprise and data center applications.
Uncompromising Data Availability
Pantera systems are tightly integrated with ONStor EverON operating system and feature redundant, hot swappable components along with a modular system architecture to deliver maximum data availability and resilient operation. With native active-active N-way clustering, Pantera filers deliver scalable clustered storage with no single point of failure. Data availability is further ensured by a comprehensive suite of data protection features such as snapshots, mirroring and replication.
Storage Pooling for Tiering and Capacity Management
Pantera Clustered NAS systems support pooling of different grades of storage in a single system enabling an enterprise to match performance, capacity and cost of storage to application needs. You can mix of Fibre Channel, SATA, and Solid State storage in a single Pantera filer. This flexibility allows administrators to implement tiered storage architecture.
