Quantum To Highlight StorNext At BVE

News Image
Quantum will highlight its StorNext platform, as well as the Xcellis workflow storage system, at BVE 2017, Stand G15, it has been announced.

StorNext 5.4 was released in December 2016 and delivers flexibility to media content management. A new feature in StorNext FlexTier enables easy integration to existing public cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage (private cloud), including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe and Scality RING, as archive tiers in a StorNext-managed media environment. Users can protect their prior investments while reducing the cost and complexity of cloud storage administration.

The platform's new Dynamic Application Environment (DAE) supports embedded applications in self-contained virtual machines, with a hypervisor dynamically allocating resources as needed for both storage and application performance. StorNext 5.4 users can leverage the converged storage architecture of Xcellis shared storage to reduce the time, cost and complexity of deploying and maintaining applications. StorNext 5.4 also provides users with new connectivity options for Xcellis workflow storage – quad 16Gb Fibre Channel and dual 40Gb Ethernet – plus new NAS capabilities such as NFS 4.0.

Also at BVE 2017, Quantum will demonstrate its Xcellis workflow storage system. Xcellis consolidates media management, extends connectivity options for both Fibre Channel and Ethernet clients, and supports hosted applications in a single hardware solution that enhances productivity in collaborative media environments. Working with an increasing number of technology partners and application providers, Quantum is continually extending the ways in which Xcellis can optimise end-to-end workflows.

Based on the StorNext 5 platform, Xcellis facilitates configuration of performance and capacity. The solution supports online work-in-process, ingest and delivery, and archive through Quantum's portfolio of Lattus object storage, LTO tape and cloud access through StorNext FlexTier. Xcellis also enables continuous scalability that reduces the cost and complexity of storage deployment and maintenance, but also enables future expansion.

Xcellis has the ability to support embedded applications, which run on the system to deliver functionality while streamlining operations. Quantum will demonstrate this capability, the execution of applications via virtual machines within the storage system, and how this approach reduces the need for dedicated application servers and provides a foundation for future technologies and workflows. Quantum and a growing number of partners have introduced embedded applications for Xcellis that address tasks such as media asset management, transcoding and QC.

High-resolution workflows come with increased complexity, such as a greater number of ingest points, more delivery formats, many transcode steps and a significant dependency on quality control steps. Handling the high volume of content and large file sizes can lead to slowdowns, inconsistent operation and potentially risky asset loss situations. Quantum answers these challenges by extending storage and workflow operations onto a low-latency, scalable Lattus object storage system.

Geoff Stedman, Senior vice president, Products and Solutions, Quantum, said: "Our StorNext workflow storage platform is designed to 'power what's next,' and at BVE 2017 we will showcase the many ways in which the new 5.4 release of StorNext empowers companies to streamline media workflows from end to end, across storage on the ground and in the cloud. We'll feature the innovative converged architecture of our Xcellis storage system, and especially its ability to reduce the cost and complexity of application deployment. We also will demonstrate the added efficiencies and greater flexibility media companies realize with our Lattus object storage system."
