Industry Awards Highlight Increased Importance of Storage for Video Surveillance
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) and its StorNext® data management software won top honors for the Video Surveillance Data Storage categories in two prestigious awards at the ISC West 2017 Conference in Las Vegas. StorNext was recognized by the Security Industry Association (SIA) as category winner in the New Product Showcase (NPS). In addition, StorNext also received the Platinum Govies Government Security award given by Security Today magazine.
Sponsored by the Security Industry Association, the annual SIA NPS is one of the top accolades for product innovation in the security industry. A panel of judges evaluated StorNext 5.4 and determined the data management software was the best new data storage product offering for video surveillance.
Security Today magazine and securitytoday.com announced the 2017 Platinum and Gold winners in The Govies Government Security Awards competition. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2017 categories and named them winners using criteria including features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, impact on the security industry, technical advances, and scalability.
StorNext provides a unique combination of industry-leading performance, low-cost capacity and ready access for managing unstructured data. Enhancements in StorNext 5.4 include FlexTier™, which integrates existing public cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage — starting with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe and Scality RING — as tiers in a StorNext-unified namespace. It also provides embedded application deployment in StorNext appliances, leveraging industry-standard virtualization for simple integration with VMS and analytic applications, as well as data management and sharing applications.
