Quantum have announced their Xcellis workflow storage, the company’s next-generation, high-performance storage solution engineered to optimize demanding workflows, accelerate time to insight and empower organizations to drive greater success.
The new solution addresses the explosive growth of unstructured data and the opportunity to capitalize on its strategic value by enabling users to share and leverage this data more quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Powered by Quantum’s StorNext® scale-out storage platform and its industry-leading streaming performance, Xcellis can be deployed as a standalone system or as the primary storage component within a multitier storage environment incorporating object storage, tape and cloud technologies
Scott , analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group commented “Quantum has significantly expanded its scale-out storage portfolio over the past couple years, focusing on key customer challenges such as managing 4K video and cost-effectively leveraging the cloud for archive data”
For customers in highly data-intensive fields such as video production, intelligence, surveillance and technical applications (e.g., genomics, medical imaging, oil and gas exploration), meeting business and mission objectives depends on the ability to derive value from their digital assets.
However, a key challenge has been storing and managing this data in a way that cost-effectively meets performance and access needs in an end-to-end workflow. While scale-out NAS products have enabled organizations to leverage their IP infrastructure, these offerings have been unable to keep up with the greater performance and scalability demands generated by increasingly larger data files and higher content resolutions.
Xcellis overcomes these limitations and delivers a comprehensive solution that automates and simplifies data management, providing a unique combination of converged architecture, continuous scalability and unified access in a single system.
