Quantum Corporation has announced a new StorNext architecture and new line of StorNext appliances that simplify how organisations manage, store and protect their video content, imagery and business critical data. The Quantum H4000 Series of appliances combines the latest hardware technology with the company’s signature StorNext software, the world’s fastest file system for video workloads. This offering is based on a simplified and converged architecture that accelerates time to value, reduces power and cooling costs, eliminates networking complexity, and makes it easier to deploy StorNext for edge processing, remote production, and in the core data center.
“IDC’s forecast for global data creation and replication shows a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23 per cent over the 2020-2025 forecast period,” said Matt Leib, Research Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “With this type of data growth, customers across a wide range of applications need simplified and consolidated architectures such as StorNext to store more data in less space and at lower costs,” added Leib.
“As a long time StorNext user, I am excited to have access to a new architecture that eliminates major roadblocks for us, such as server complexity, rack space, and energy costs,” says Kevin Bass, Chief Engineer, MakeMake. “The compact design makes it an ideal solution for our LA and New York studios, where space and power are big considerations,” added Bass.
