Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) has announced StorNext 6, a major new release of its award-winning StorNext file system, the company said.
StorNext 6 adds new advanced data management features to the industry-leading streaming performance of the company´s scale-out tiered storage solutions portfolio, which includes flash, disk, tape and public and private cloud storage offerings. With this unique combination of performance and management, Quantum continues to extend the power of StorNext in not only media and entertainment but also other highly data-intensive environments such as genomics, academic research, video surveillance, oil and gas, and government security.
StorNext 6 addresses the needs of enterprises grappling with using their existing NAS solutions to store large, rapidly growing data sets and drive business value from that data. These enterprises are quickly realizing that traditional NAS is too difficult to upgrade, cannot deliver sufficient performance and is unable to handle parallel workloads.
StorNext 6 not only overcomes these limitations but also provides more efficient and cost-effective ways to share and access files across geographically distributed teams, to manage and protect archived data, and to audit changes to data throughout its lifecycle. Quantum delivers all these benefits in an integrated, multi-tier storage solution that maintains optimized performance levels, visibility and access at every tier.
Quantum is a expert in scale-out tiered storage, archive and data protection. The company´s StorNext platform powers modern high-performance workflows, enabling seamless, real-time collaboration and keeping content readily accessible for future use and re-monetization.
