Panasas President and CEO Faye Pairman Honored as One of HPCwire's 'People to Watch' in 2011

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) - Panasas, Inc., the leader in high performance parallel storage for business-critical applications, today announced that Panasas president and CEO Faye Pairman has been named one of HPCwire's 'People to Watch' in 2011. The industry luminaries selected for this prestigious list are influential thought leaders who meaningfully advance HPC technology or serve as ambassadors for the HPC community.

"It is an honor to be recognized as a leader in high performance computing by such an important HPC publication, though this recognition is really a reflection of the continuing success of our company," said Pairman. "Panasas has long been commended for delivering superior HPC storage products and technology, as evidenced by our winning multiple HPCwire Reader's Choice Awards over the years."

Pairman brings more than 20 years of executive leadership experience in the storage industry to her role as president and CEO of Panasas. Previously, she was senior vice president and general manager of the storage business unit at Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) after it acquired 3ware, Inc., where as president and CEO she had grown revenue by more than 300 percent. Earlier, Pairman held several general management positions at Adaptec, Inc., where she managed that company's largest and most profitable storage controller business.

Candidates for HPCwire's semi-annual list are chosen from the academic, government and industrial end-user communities. The final selection is made by the HPCwire editorial and publishing teams, with input from leaders in the HPC community, including past recipients of the recognition.
