Quantum launches StorNext 5.4

Quantum announces StorNext 5.4, a new release of the company’s workflow storage platform

StorNext 5.4 enhancements include the ability to integrate existing public cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage (private cloud) — starting with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe and Scality RING— as archive tiers in a StorNext-managed media environment. Another new feature enables users to deploy applications embedded within StorNext-powered Xcellis workflow storage appliances.

 

“One of the key challenges in today’s media workflows is managing the ever-growing volume of higher-resolution video content”, has said Dave Frederick, Senior Director of Media and Entertainment, Quantum.

 

“Quantum has been at the forefront in helping users address this challenge and capitalize on the opportunities to leverage this content for greater business and organizational success. StorNext 5.4 builds on the company’s leadership, enabling users to extend their StorNext multi-tier storage environments and achieve even greater workflow efficiency, flexibility and cost savings”.

Jimmy Engelbrecht, CTO, Cantemo, has added: “With the Dynamic Application Environment in StorNext 5.4, customers can deploy the Cantemo Portal application on the same underlying hardware as the Xcellis infrastructure. This reduces the cost of deployment because there is no need to purchase separate compute power and network infrastructure for the application. It also delivers higher performance because the application is closer to the storage”.

 

“We have worked with Quantum for a long time, using the StorNext APIs to help our customers get the most out of their scale-out storage systems”, has claimed Eran Zeitoun, Solutions Infrastructure and Integration Services Manager, Dalet. “Now, with StorNext 5.4 and its rich enhancements to archive targets and connectivity, Dalet users working with Xcellis can take full advantage of our media asset management software while improving flexibility and performance”.

 

StorNext 5.4 is currently shipping with all newly purchased Xcellis, StorNext M-Series and StorNext Pro Solutions offerings, as well as Artico archive appliances. It is available at no additional cost for StorNext 5 users under current support contracts.
