Autodesk To Resell Quantum's StorNext File System

Quantum Corp has announced that Autodesk will resell Quantum’s StorNext File System. The world leader in design and entertainment software, Autodesk will begin offering Quantum’s open file system to enable Autodesk’s media and entertainment customers to more effectively share digital content across Autodesk visual effects, editing, finishing and colour-grading technologies. By enhancing this workflow collaboration, Autodesk can help customers drive down costs, reduce the amount of duplicate data hosted on direct-attached storage and simplify integration into digital intermediate pipelines, post production and visual effects.
Billy Russell, manager, solutions architects for Autodesk Global Services, said: “Customers taking advantage of the combined Autodesk applications and StorNext software are able to greatly reduce project times, while dramatically increasing workflow collaboration. Before forging this relationship with Quantum, a team of Autodesk engineers thoroughly tested the StorNext File System in real-world environments and were pleased with the superior performance and resiliency of the high-speed data sharing workflow solution.”
Leveraging Quantum’s StorNext software with Autodesk’s suite of media and entertainment systems, customers gain high-performance and resilient connectivity from SAN and LAN workstations, creating a consolidated storage pool which applications can access over highly scalable, low-latency data paths. This enables digital artists to simplify complicated distributed environments, reduce capacity requirements and create content loaded with visual effects, finishing, colour grading and animation.
Shawn Klein, director of software partner development for Quantum, added: “By joining forces, Quantum and Autodesk help customers reduce the amount of duplicate data hosted on direct attached storage. The bottom line is that customers not only save money but are able to simplify their workflow and increase collaboration across 3D workstations, graphic stations and more.”
In addition to delivering high-performance content, Autodesk’s suite of media and entertainment products, along with StorNext’s data sharing capability, can help reduce the overall time required to create, finalise and distribute content. For customers that need to retain finished products cost-effectively, StorNext Storage Manager offers an optional data movement component that transparently moves and protects content on lower-cost tiers of storage.
