News Image
Quantum has announced the availability of the latest Xcellis® appliances powered by StorNext, Quantum's award-winning file system.

The new offerings reinforce Xcellis as the solution of choice to ingest, edit, share and store media content and provide an improved technical foundation for organisations to run their operations.

The new appliances are based on a next-generation server architecture that includes dual 8-core Intel Xeon CPU’s, 64 GB memory, SSD boot drives, and dual 100Gb Ethernet or 32 Gb Fibre Channel ports. The significantly enhanced CPU and 50% increase in RAM over the previous generation greatly improve StorNext metadata performance. These enhancements make tasks such as file auditing less time intensive, support an even greater number of clients per node, and enable the management of billions of files per node. Customers operating in a dynamic application environment on storage nodes will also see performance improvements.

More efficient network capabilities for greater productivity
From leading post-houses to cutting-edge autonomous vehicle engineering firms, organizations are turning to the latest networking technologies to attain the most cost-effective storage solutions. With the latest 100 Gb Ethernet and 32 Gb Fibre Channel connectivity options, customers will be able to utilize the latest generation networking infrastructure between their clients and storage arrays, thereby accelerating workflows and improving productivity. Combined with StorNext's capability to provide the most comprehensive and coordinated file accessibility over NAS, SAN, and DLC architectures, the new platform offers industry-leading architectural flexibility.

Next-generation Xcellis advantages
Comprehensive, unified access across geographies: With the unique ability to provide cross-protocol locking for shared files across SAN, NFS, and SMB, Xcellis is an optimal solution for organisations that have collaborative workflows and need to share content across both Fibre Channel and Ethernet.

Unparalleled video playback performance: Quantum's Xcellis has long been trusted to deliver the performance needed for increasingly demanding applications and higher resolution content. Now leveraging the benefits that come with an improved next-generation hardware platform, StorNext will provide even higher levels of streaming performance for video playback, with even greater reliability.

Cost-effectively preserve massive amounts of data: Xcellis appliances provide a high-performance gateway for StorNext advanced data management software to integrate tiers of massively scalable on-premise and cloud-based storage. This end-to-end capability provides a cost-effective solution to retain massive amounts of data.

Integrated data protection functionality: StorNext offers a variety of important features that ensure data-protection of valuable content over its entire life-cycle. Customers can easily copy files to off-site tiers and take advantage of versioning to roll back to an earlier point in time (prior to a malware attack, for example) as well as set up automated replication for disaster recovery purposes – all of which is designed to protect valuable digital assets.
