Quantum Introduces The F1000

News Image
Quantum has announced a new, lower-priced addition to the award-winning Quantum® F-Series family of NVMe storage appliances, the F1000.

Leveraging software defined architecture introduced with the F2000, the F1000 exemplifies Quantum's commitment to an accelerated pace of product innovation, offering ultra-fast streaming performance and response times at a lower entry price. The F-Series is used by major studios, corporations, and government agencies to accelerate the capture, edit, and finishing of high-definition content, and speeds VFX and CGI render performance by 10x-100x, to develop cutting edge augmented and virtual reality.

Unlike more general purpose NVMe storage arrays, the Quantum F-Series was designed specifically for the video and image-based workloads that are critical to customers. This content can be high-definition video used for movie, TV, and sports production, marketing and advertising content, or image-based workloads that require high speed processing, such as the data from a satellite feed, a drone, a car used in the development of new automated driver assistance systems (ADAS), and more.

Quantum's customers are deploying F-Series NVMe systems as part of Quantum's StorNext® scale-out file storage cluster and leveraging the StorNext data management capabilities to move data between NVMe storage pools and other storage pools. Customers can take advantage of the performance boost NVMe provides for workloads that require it, while continuing to use lower-cost storage for data where performance is less critical.

Quantum customers are recognising the benefits of F-Series NVMe appliances, not only to accelerate the workloads above, but to move from fiber channel networks to less expensive IP-based networks. However, many customers have voiced the need for a less expensive entry point into NVMe technology, which is what led to the development of the Quantum F1000.

The F1000 is a 1U NVMe storage server optimized for performance, without the high-availability design of the F2000. Using a single-controller server and optimizing the F-Series software stack to run with less CPU, the F1000 offers the same ultra-fast streaming performance, and extremely fast response times as the F2000, at a lower entry price. The Quantum F1000 offers performance that is 5x to 10x faster than an equivalent SAS SSD storage array, at a similar price.

The F1000 is available in two capacity points: 39 TB and 77 TB. It offers the same connectivity options as the F2000: 32 Gb fiber channel, or iSER / RDMA using 100 Gb Ethernet, and is designed to be deployed as part of a StorNext scale out file storage cluster.

The F1000 leverages the same software-defined block storage platform that was introduced with the Quantum F2000, which enabled Quantum to go from concept to completed design in less than one quarter. The introduction of the F1000 illustrates the power of Quantums software-defined architecture and is an example of the accelerated pace of innovation that defines the new Quantum.
