The StorNext product line has been completely refreshed, with a new version of Quantum’s StorNext file system and new appliances.

The appliance hardware has been redesigned with double the performance, to edit and colour 8K content in real time. It also has new predictive tiering and analytics capabilities, new ways to integrate with cloud, and a simplified user experience. 

Eric Bassier, head of product and technology marketing, Quantum, said: “We’ve dramatically accelerated our pace of innovation in the last year.” 

According to Bassier, Quantum is introducing faster NVMe flash storage, distributed cloud services and analytics, removable edge storage, video surveillance storage, and more. 

“Quantum has undergone a significant transformation,” added Bassier, who promised that it is now applying “more focused attention on accelerating and enhancing media workflows.”

A new Distributed Cloud Services suite offers improved overall user experience and promises to maximise return on investment for video storage. Powered by new Cloud-Based Analytics software, it provides a central hub where Quantum products send product and environmental data. Quantum’s global services team uses this data to proactively manage the customer’s environment, either as an operational service or as a pay-per-use, Storage-as-a-Service offering.
