Earlier this month at the 2016 Storage Visions Conference, Quantum Corp. was
presented with the 2016 Storage Visions Award for Visionary Products, Professional-Class System, for the company’s new Xcellis™ shared workflow storage solution.
The Storage Visions Awards recognise companies advancing the state of the art in
storage technologies and showcase visionary digital storage products.
Optimised for end-to-end workflows, Xcellis empowers users to boost their
efficiency, productivity and creativity in delivering the products and services that
drive their business. Consolidating data and metadata management, extending
connectivity options and supporting hosted applications, Xcellis integrates
components of workflow storage into a single compact hardware solution that runs
on the Quantum StorNext 5 media workflow platform. The Quantum solution
facilitates configuration and growth, allowing users to start with smaller systems
and then scale up performance and capacity with no replacement of original
hardware investment and no interruption to on-going operations.
The annual Storage Visions Conference focuses on the latest digital storage
technologies and their applications. Hosted by the Entertainment Storage Alliance
and Coughlin Associates, this year’s event took place from 4 to 5 January at the
Luxor Conference Centre in Las Vegas.
“Each year the Storage Visions Conference brings the industry a unique opportunity
to explore the future of digital storage and how new technologies are enabling more
effective and efficient use of data across the enterprise. We built the Xcellis shared
workflow storage solution to address the challenges presented by increasingly data-
centric and data-rich operations, and we are honoured that this work has been
recognised with a 2016 Storage Visions Award,” said Geoff Stedman, senior vice
president, StorNext Solutions, Quantum.
