StorNext-Powered Entry-Level Workflow Storage Breaks New Ground by Delivering High Performance and Scalability of Enterprise-Class Storage in NAS Appliance Under $25,000

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that its Xcellis® Foundation high-performance, entry-level workflow storage system has earned a NewBay Product Innovation Award. Winners are selected by a panel of professional users based on evaluation criteria that include innovation of concept and design, creative use of technology, price value, and suitability for use in a broadcast TV/professional video or broadcast/online radio environment.

Xcellis Foundation was designed to address the technical and budgetary requirements of small- to medium-sized postproduction facilities and corporate video departments. Based on Quantum's industry-leading StorNext® shared file system and data management platform, the new system delivers the benefits of enterprise-class Xcellis storage, including high performance and scalability, in a NAS appliance for under $25,000.

Providing a more powerful, more feature-rich alternative to other entry-level storage systems at a similar price point, Xcellis Foundation is ideal for smaller video production facilities that need the benefits of a shared workflow but have limited budgets to spend on shared storage. With the latest-generation StorNext 6 software at its core, the 3U Xcellis Foundation offers the following benefits:

  • the industry's fastest streaming file system, providing the performance essential to working with higher video resolutions, including 1080p and 4K, without introducing complexity or unnecessary cost to the workflow;
  • cost-effective IP connectivity over standard NAS protocols with no per-seat licensing;
  • advanced data management capabilities that optimize performance and maximize capacity across different storage tiers while assuring that content is always in the right place at the right time;
  • seamless integration into a multitier storage infrastructure that includes flash, disk, nearline object storage, public cloud and tape archive;
  • the ability to scale up and scale out — from 48 TB, 72 TB or 96 TB — through readily extended capacity, connectivity and redundancy; and
  • simple installation and setup via a web-based GUI.
