New Xcellis(TM) 4K Reference Architectures

Quantum will highlight its new 4K reference architectures, created from exhaustive real-world 4K testing and suitably scaled for facilities from small to large. In the testing, all Xcellis solutions were validated under intense 4K workloads, reflecting industry-leading capabilities for streaming 4K to collaborative teams of content creators. The testing included characterization of large- and small-form-factor disk drives and all-flash arrays in different configurations of compressed and uncompressed 4K formats. The resulting reference architectures have been tuned to deliver predictable stream-count workloads for the full range of 4K formats. 

New All-Flash Arrays for VFX Workflows

Quantum will also highlight the combination of StorNext(R) and the performance of all-flash arrays to get the most out of both technologies. StorNext is well-known for enabling users to maximize workflow efficiency. This efficiency is no different with flash when it comes to meeting or exceeding the needs of the most demanding workflows, with use cases such as visual effects, color correction, or high-end compositing and finishing deriving the greatest benefit.
