Quantum Integrates Cloud Into Multi-Tier Storage

News Image
Quantum has unveiled three new solutions to integrate the cloud into multi-tier, hybrid storage architectures for demanding data workloads.

The new Q-Cloud solutions are designed to enable users to store data in the cloud when it makes the most sense for a given workflow or application. Q-Cloud Archive and Q-Cloud Vault use the public cloud as an off-site tier within a Quantum StorNext 5 workflow environment, while Q-Cloud Protect for AWS enables customers using Quantum's DXi deduplication appliances to replicate data to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

The new approach enables customers to combine public cloud storage with on-premise storage in a multi-tier, intelligently managed, application-centric architecture. The cloud is integrated as an active tier in a hybrid storage infrastructure driven by application requirements.

Q-Cloud Archive and Q-Cloud Vault are public cloud storage services delivered by Quantum, with Q-Cloud Archive providing on-demand access to data in the cloud and Q-Cloud Vault offering 'cold storage' for long-term data retention and disaster recovery.

Features include:
• Full integration as a tier in StorNext 5-managed workflows, with automated, policy-based data movement
• No additional hardware, separate applications or programming needed
• Secure, encrypted data in transit and at rest
• StorNextcustomers can also use Q-Cloud Archive and Q-Cloud Vault in conjunction with Quantum's Lattus extended online storage, including moving data from a Lattus object storage technology-based private cloud on premise to Q-Cloud.

Offered as a subscription service through the Amazon Marketplace, Q-Cloud Protect for AWS enables customers to replicate from either a physical or virtual DXi appliance on premise to a virtual DXi instance in the AWS cloud.

John Stevens, director of engineering at MTI Film, said: "One of the main reasons we chose Quantum's Lattus extended online storage as the foundation for our private cloud was the intelligent data management provided through its seamless integration with StorNext. By adding a public cloud tier also managed by StorNext, Quantum gives us the ability to drive even greater efficiencies in our content workflows."

Jason Kranitz, vice president of sales, Integrated Media Technologies Inc., said: "With Q-Cloud Archive and Q-Cloud Vault, customers get the benefit of StorNext 5 being both workflow-guided and tier-aware. This is key to leveraging the cloud where it makes sense and in the most effective way possible, particularly in highly demanding data environments."

Geoff Stedman, senior vice president, StorNext solutionsat Quantum, explained: "Effective data management is about putting data in the right place at the right time with the right technology, guided by a customer's workflow or application. That's why we designed our new Q-Cloud solutions to be deployed in broader, intelligently managed hybrid architectures that enable customers to optimise the use of both on-premise and cloud storage in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible."
