Quantum, a global leader in storage, delivers highly reliable backup, archive, and workflow solutions that meet demanding requirements for data integrity, availability, and performance. Used throughout broadcast, post-production, imaging, and other Media & Entertainment operations, Quantum’s leading software and tape solutions streamline operations and intelligently archive content. The company’s data management software, StorNext, creates shared storage pools for faster project completion and archives content for lower cost data retention and disaster recovery. The A-Series platform provides provideo environments with a tape-based file system, network-attached storage and is MXF-aware for simplified sharing and transport of content without disruption of metadata.

Proven in some of the world’s most data intensive industries such as media & entertainment, oil & gas, satellite imaging, and genome research, Quantum StorNext delivers scalable, high-performance file sharing across Linux, Mac, Unix, and Windows operating systems and cost-effectively manages, archives, and protects enterprise storage environments. The release of StorNext 4.0 builds on this established technology with features such as Replication, Nearline Deduplication, Distributed Data Movers, Partial File Retrieval, and streamlined Management Console.

Key Features and Benefits
  • StorNext File System delivers high-performance file access, supporting heterogeneous environments across Linux, Mac, Unix, and Windows operating systems.
  • StorNext Storage Manager enables cost savings and management simplicity with its policy-based tiered storage and archiving capabilities.
  • StorNext Gateway appliances enable high-speed access to StorNext data volumes over an IP network.
  • StorNext Time Code-Based Partial File Retrieval indexes video content and optimizes retrieval of smaller clips of content from much larger video files, saving staff time and reducing hardware costs.
With StorNext data management software, you get high-speed content sharing combined with cost-effective data archiving. It's all about helping you build an infrastructure that consolidates your resources, so workflow runs faster and operations cost less. StorNext offers data sharing and retention in a single solution, so you don't have to piece together multiple products that may not integrate well. Even in heterogeneous environments, all data is easily accessible to all hosts. Need ultimate performance? We recommend SAN connectivity. For cost efficiency and fan-out, StorNext also offers LAN-based access using StorNext Gateway Appliances.

StorNext 5 Scale-out Storage

Xcellis Workflow Storage

Qualified against Autodesk's certified storage solution

A powerful and scalable system that simplifies storage architecture and streamlines operations. Xcellis enhances workflows, boosts efficiency, improves productivity, and enables business insight.

Converged Architecture
Operating multiple storage systems to satisfy different performance and connectivity requirements is wasteful and costly. Quantum Xcellis creates a highly efficient storage environment that supports workflows, promotes collaboration, and fits your business requirements. Never underpowered or over provisioned, flexible Xcellis storage is designed to manage storage on your terms.

Unified Access
Demanding workflows have increased the need for collaboration among core and extended team members. By combining both SAN performance with the ease of NAS connectivity, Xcellis extends collaboration to the broadest range of users. This provides the right level of performance to the right people, improves collaboration, and simplifies deployments and workflows.

Continuous Scalability
Quantum believes you shouldn’t have to forklift-replace components to scale storage. Nor should you have to pay for additional hardware to overcome architectural deficiencies. Xcellis scales capacity and performance in parallel or independently, providing users access to the space and bandwidth required to get the job done.

Xcellis workflow storage is flat out fast. Users in any workflow, whether it’s genomic research, 4K video, surveillance or any other demanding field, will feel like they’re directly attached, interacting in real time with data streams that bring less capable systems to their knees. But it’s not just streaming performance that matters; Xcellis also accelerates workflows with support for key applications with no change in process, and access to content from any tier.
