 Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that its Xcellis® Foundation high-performance, entry-level workflow storage system has earned a NewBay Product Innovation Award.

Providing a more powerful, more feature-rich alternative to other entry-level storage systems at a similar price point, Xcellis Foundation is ideal for smaller video production facilities that need the benefits of a shared workflow but have limited budgets to spend on shared storage. With the latest-generation StorNext 6 software at its core, the 3U Xcellis Foundation offers the following benefits:

• the industry's fastest streaming file system, providing the performance essential to working with higher video resolutions, including 1080p and 4K, without introducing complexity or unnecessary cost to the workflow;

• cost-effective IP connectivity over standard NAS protocols with no per-seat licensing;

• advanced data management capabilities that optimize performance and maximize capacity across different storage tiers while assuring that content is always in the right place at the right time;

• seamless integration into a multitier storage infrastructure that includes flash, disk, nearline object storage, public cloud and tape archive;

• the ability to scale up and scale out — from 48 TB, 72 TB or 96 TB — through readily extended capacity, connectivity and redundancy; and

• simple installation and setup via a web-based GUI.
