Quantum's new F-Series NVMe storage arrays have received two industry awards during the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV.

The F-Series was named Best New Storage Technology winner in the 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards, and also received the ProductionHUB Award of Excellence.
Commenting on the awards, NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown, said: "Nominees are revolutionising the way people experience media and entertainment. The 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards highlight the best of what's new at the premier launchpad for breakthroughs at the intersection of media, entertainment and technology."

The New Quantum F-Series
The Quantum F-Series is a high-performance, highly available and reliable storage array designed for studio editing, rendering, and other performance-intensive workloads for large unstructured data sets.

The Quantum F-Series was designed specifically for video and video-like data, uses NVMe flash drives for ultra-fast reads and writes and to support a huge amount of parallel processing, and uses the latest networking technology to minimize latency between applications and storage. Relative to traditional SSD and HDD storage arrays, the Quantum F-Series is orders of magnitude faster, enables users to move from Fibre Channel SAN infrastructures to Ethernet infrastructures without giving up performance and gains back racks of data centre space.

Incorporating the latest Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) networking technology, the F-Series provides direct access between workstations and the NVMe storage devices, delivering predictable, fast network performance. By combining these hardware features with the new Quantum Cloud Storage Platform - a software defined block storage stack tuned specifically for video and video-like data - and the StorNext® file system, the F-Series delivers end-to-end storage capabilities for post-production houses, broadcasters, and other rich media environments.

Welcoming the awards, Jamie Lerner, President and CEO, Quantum, said: "We're thrilled that the F-Series is immediately receiving accolades from two respected voices in the media and entertainment industry. It's gratifying to be recognised for technical innovations in block storage, NVMe, and RDMA networking areas that enable customers to transition from Fibre Channel to Ethernet and achieve the performance they need to address production challenges."

NAB Show Product of the Year Awards
The Product of the Year program recognises the most significant and promising new products and technologies showcased by exhibitors at the 2019 NAB Show, the world's largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums.
