Quantum offers new storage solution for media professionals


Quantum, a scale-out storage, archive and data protection company, is further
extending its line of StorNext Pro Solutions with StorNext Pro Foundation, a
complete entry-level, integrated shared storage solution designed specifically for
new customers or new deployments in the post, broadcast, corporate and
government video sectors. Announced at the Content and Communications World
(CCW) conference in New York, StorNext Pro Foundation is built on the proven
StorNext 5 workflow storage and collaboration platform, and brings the capabilities
of Quantum’s storage solutions to a new audience of media professionals.

Alex Grossman, VP, media and entertainment, Quantum says, “The unveiling of
StorNext Pro Foundation at CCW reflects the continued expansion of our StorNext
Pro Solutions product family to address customers’ evolving workflow needs. We’re
seeing significant interest in these StorNext 5-powered solutions, and we look
forward to demonstrating how StorNext Pro Foundation meets a pressing industry
demand for uncompromising performance in small and mid-sized content-creation

Ready to deploy within new or existing fibre channel networks, StorNext Pro
Foundation gives small to mid-sized production workgroups a solution for managing
assets from ingest to delivery to archive. The underlying StorNext 5 platform
ensures that the solution can adapt as the workflow evolves, enabling users to
ingest more content from multiple camera sources, create more content and deliver
it on time while preserving owned content for future monetisation. StorNext Pro
Foundation offers high performance and full Xsan compatibility, an ideal pairing for
smaller workgroups looking to renew or upgrade, as well as for current StorNext
users wishing to add smaller remote and local workgroups for graphics, rendering
and EFX. The new solution will be available in initial system configurations of 48-TB
and 96-TB systems, which respectively support five and seven Xsan/Windows/Linux
SAN clients.
