Quantum's StorNext 5.4 Provides Greater Efficiency in Media Content Management

News Image
StorNext 5.4 is a new release of Quantum's acclaimed workflow storage platform that brings new levels of efficiency and flexibility to media content management.

The most significant enhancement within StorNext 5.4 is a new cloud access feature for Storage Manager. With this feature users can easily integrate existing public cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage (private cloud) – starting with AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe and Scality RING – as archive tiers in a StorNext-managed media environment. Thus, Storage Manager readily supports not only LTO, disk and object storage as primary disk and tape storage tiers but also public and private cloud use cases as extended online and scalable content repositories.

Offered as part of StorNext Storage Manager, cloud access facilitates automated, policy-based movement of content into and out of users' existing public and private clouds while maintaining the high visibility and access that StorNext provides. As a result, media companies can protect their prior investments while reducing the cost and complexity of cloud storage administration.

Storage Manager's cloud access gives users and applications access to media stored in the cloud without the need for additional hardware or software, and it also extends versioning across sites and the cloud to help optimize storage resources and ensure efficient collaborative workflows. Supporting a broad selection of third-party WAN acceleration tools and high-speed connectivity options for high-volume data transfers, the new StorNext 5.4 feature gives media companies the ability to leverage integrated cloud transfer acceleration for further efficiency gains.
