NVMe Powered Xcellis Storage Appliances Provide Unparalleled Performance

As working in file formats beyond 4K becomes more mainstream across the globe, media and entertainment organizations require a storage solution that can efficiently support exceptionally demanding workflows. Leveraging the latest NVMe flash technology, Xcellis storage appliances can now deliver over 17Gb/s single client streaming performance, to support the highest-resolution formats found in digital media. Tightly integrated with Quantum’s StorNext file system, these storage resources can be shared cost effectively and all data is accessible by multiple clients in a global namespace.

Additional Quantum IBC Highlights
Further underscoring StorNext’s award-winning reliability and leadership in shared storage environments, additional Quantum highlights featured at stand 7. B07 include:

· Redefining All-IP Workflow Performance with Xcellis: Building on StorNext’s reputation for high-performance in SAN environments, Quantum is now taking performance leadership a step further with new NAS-based offerings. Internal testing demonstrates Quantum’s Xcellis Scale-out NAS solutions outperform offerings from enterprise-class NAS providers and NAS-focused startups for 4K, 8K and 16K projects. Combined with the solutions’ unmatched scalability and robust metadata management, this industry-leading performance redefines the kind of workflows that can be supported in all IP-based environments.

· Augmenting Legacy Storage Environments: Quantum continues to invest in technologies that make it easier for customers to benefit from modern, feature rich storage solutions. This year the company will showcase its StorageCare® Archive Conversion Service for easier data migration from existing archive environments, such as migrating Oracle DIVArchive content into a StorNext-managed environment. This combination of database migration software and professional services makes it easier for customers to upgrade while keeping most legacy assets.
