Quantum Upgrades Xcellis Scale-out Storage With StorNext 6.2 Software And NVMe Technology

Quantum Corp announces significant enhancements to the Xcellis scale-out storage appliance portfolio: StorNext 6.2 bolsters performance for 4K and 8K video while enhancing integration with cloud-based workflows and global collaborative environments. NVM storage significantly accelerates ingest and other aspects of media workflows. These enhancements reinforce Xcellis as the solution of choice to ingest, edit, share and store rich media content for thousands of customers worldwide. Modern File Systems Quantum’s Xcellis scale-out appliances have long been trusted to deliver high performance to increasingly demanding applications and higher resolution content. The introduction of NVMe storage to the Xcellis appliances offers ultra-fast performance: 22 GB/s single-client, uncached streaming bandwidth. Leveraging Excelero’s NVMesh technology in combination with StorNext, all data is accessible by multiple clients in a global namespace, making it easy to access and cost-effectively share flash-based resources. As more organizations depend on broad collaboration among their staff to meet project deadlines, and workflows extend from on-premise into the cloud, being able to effectively manage and access data across complex, hybrid environments has become a requirement for modern file systems. Greater Flexibility StorNext 6.2, Quantum now offers an S3 interface to Xcellis appliances, enabling them to serve as targets for applications designed to write Now with the ability to provide cross protocol locking for shared access across SAN, NFS, and SMB, Xcellis is an optimal solution for organizations that need to share content across both Fibre Channel and Ethernet. With StorNext 6.2, Quantum now offers an S3 interface to Xcellis appliances, enabling them to serve as targets for applications designed to write to RESTful interfaces. Organizations gain greater flexibility to use Xcellis as either a gateway to the cloud or as an S3 target for web-based applications. With storage environments becoming increasingly complex, users need more powerful tools to proactively manage their storage resources. Adjust System Configuration Xcellis environments can now be managed with a new cloud monitoring tool that enables Quantum’s support team to monitor critical customer environmental factors, speed time to resolution, and ultimately increase uptime. When combined with Xcellis Web Services – a suite of services that enables users to set policies, adjust system configuration, and more – overall system management is simplified and streamlined. Available with StorNext 6.2, enhanced FlexSync replication capabilities enable users to create local or remote replicas of multi-tier file system content and metadata. With the ability to protect data for both high-performance systems as well as massive archives, users now have more flexibility to protect a single directory or an entire file system. Additional Management Tools StorNext 6.2 enables administrators to provide defined and enforceable quotas, implement quality of service levels for specific users Organizations that provide storage as a service to departmental users require additional management tools to support their business processes. StorNext 6.2 enables administrators to provide defined and enforceable quotas, implement quality of service levels for specific users, and allows for simplified reporting of used storage capacity. These new features make it easier for administrators to efficiently manage large-scale media archives. The new S3 interface and NVMe storage option are both available today. Other StorNext features and capabilities described in this release will be available by December 2018. Effective Foundation Tom Coughlin, President, The Coughlin Group commented “Across multiple industries, and especially in media and entertainment, organizations are continuing to move more workflows into the cloud, which requires storage solutions to efficiently ingest, and offload, data to and from the cloud.” “By building on the existing capabilities of StorNext, Quantum’s new release will help customers maximize the benefits of the cloud and provide a more effective foundation for the industry’s most modern workflows.” Demanding Workflows As 4K goes mainstream and adoption rates of 8K media continue to rise, the need for future-proof, high-performance storage is greater than ever before Lior Gal, CEO and co-founder, Excelero said “As 4K goes mainstream and adoption rates of 8K media continue to rise, the need for future-proof, high-performance storage is greater than ever before.” “Excelero and Quantum have partnered to build on the capability of StorNext, the industry’s number one choice for storage, and offer an appliance that can support the requirements of the most demanding workflows for years to come.” High-Resolution Content Molly Presley, Vice President, Product Management and Global Marketing, Quantum commented “The new economy increasingly requires the ability to manipulate and manage rapid real-time types of unstructured data.” “Whether editing multiple streams of high-resolution content in multiple formats, reams of information produced by commuters on their way to work, or the flood of data from hundreds of sensors on an autonomous vehicle, this broad Xcellis platform refresh provides the storage foundation to effectively preserve, manage, and protect this valuable data.”

AutonomouStuff Deploys Quantum Storage Solutions To EmpowerAutonomous Vehicle Development

Quantum Corp. named AutonomouStuff LLC its primary partner for storage distribution in the automotive market, enabling them to deliver Quantum’s comprehensive end-to-end storage solutions for both in-vehicle and data center environments. Quantum’s StorNext-powered scale-out storage provides high-performance ingest of data into the data center when test vehicles return to the garage, thereby speeding time to result for sensor-generated in-vehicle data. Quantum in-vehicle storage is designed to fit the environmental and space requirements of autonomous vehicles. The combined solution enables AutonomouStuff to extend its offerings beyond in-vehicle solutions to include data center storage to support analysis and long-term data retention. Quantum has worked closely with AutonomouStuff and its customers to define and create a complete end-to-end research solution with durable in-vehicle storage for test vehicles Active Data Management StorNext solutions combine high performance storage with low cost archive storage to enable easy data integration and management for the transition between high performance analysis and long-term retention. With this type of active data management large-scale projects are substantially more economically viable, lowering data storage costs by an order of magnitude. Quantum has worked closely with AutonomouStuff and its customers to define and create a complete end-to-end research solution that includes durable in-vehicle storage for test vehicles. The resulting solution is self-protecting, self-managed data center storage where analysis and solution development takes place. Multitiered Storage Approach It also provides autonomous vehicle developers with an easy way to move data from test vehicles to the data center while achieving the lowest cost storage and delivering high-performance shared access, integrated protection and data life cycle management. Quantum’s multitiered storage approach automatically places less active data on the most cost-effective storage media while active data resides on high-performance storage. This is critical for autonomous vehicle development environments that generate petabytes of data which needs to be retained for many years to meet regulations and to validate algorithms as designs evolve. Quantum is in the vanguard of delivering storage solutions that balance performance with cost to help advance research" Scalable And Economical Solution Bobby Hambrick, founder and CEO, AutonomouStuff said “Autonomous research generates an enormous volume of data which is vital to achieving the goal of a safe autonomous vehicle. Quantum multitier data storage kits powered by StorNext offer a highly scalable and economical solution to the data dilemma researchers face.” “The promise of safer, more autonomous vehicles has captured the public imagination, and intelligent storage solutions are key to delivery of that promise. In partnership with AutonomouStuff, Quantum is in the vanguard of delivering storage solutions that balance performance with cost to help advance research of significant value to society,” said Molly Presley, vice president, global marketing, Quantum.
