Panasonic Enhances Distribution Strategy to Support Global Market Expansion

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 30, 2022 — Panasas, the data engine for innovation, today announced a new global distribution strategy with additional benefits and incentives to increase sales reach through distribution and alliance partners.

Panasas’ flagship PanFS data engine powers the ActiveStor portfolio, which includes massive capacity ActiveStor Flash all-NVMe, Hybrid ActiveStor Ultra and ActiveStor Ultra XL data storage solutions designed to accelerate AI/ML training, modeling and simulation , high-performance data analytics, and large-scale data workloads.

Panasas technology has seen a continuous increase in demand over the past 18 months, and the recent launch of the wallet promises to accelerate this trend. To support its rapidly growing customer base and expanding market, the company invests in its teams and partnerships.

“Strong partnerships are essential to our mission of accelerating growth and innovation across all industries,” said Brian Peterson, COO of Panasas. “Regardless of your organization’s size, business model, geographic location, or vertical orientation, our partner program will provide you with industry-leading storage technologies. Together, we will harness the power of big data not only to solve problems, but also to uncover new opportunities. »

The new Panasas Partner Program enables resellers, distributors and value-added technology partners to offer Panasas industry-leading data storage solutions worldwide with end-to-end sales support. New features include:

  • The Panasas Partner Portal, a hub containing innovative marketing collaboration tools, learning paths and a library of partner-friendly resources
  • Marketing and demand generation support for Panasas partners
  • Transaction recording that rewards and protects partner investments in finding new customer opportunities

Panasonic recently welcomed Penguin Solutions, an SGH company, to its new partner program. Penguin Solutions helps customers accelerate their application deployment by delivering a comprehensive, best-in-class solution experience. Penguin Solutions chose technology from Panasas over previously offered open source parallel file systems to enhance its selective product line. The partnership validates the Panasas ActiveStor Ultra storage solution for use in Penguin Solutions configurations for all AI and high performance applications.

“Our customers are solving the world’s most complex problems, from developing COVID-19 vaccines to designing airliners. Our job is to provide them with the best infrastructure so they can focus on that job,” said Bret Costelow, Executive Vice President of Global Sales at Panasas. “We are thrilled to team up with Penguin Solutions and enable them to bring PanFS and ActiveStor to all of their high performance applications and AI customers.”

Panasas will be showcased at ISC High Performance in Hamburg, Germany, May 29-June 2, 2022, Booth #E507.
