P ied Piper’s Erlich Bachman quips, “Today’s user wants access to all their files, from all of their devices, instantly. That’s why cloud-based is the Holy Grail. Now Dropbox is winning. But when it comes to audio and video files, they might as well be called Dripbox.”

Bachman displays his business prowess by recognizing the bottleneck in cloud service is its speed. He invests and places faith in Pied Piper’s Space Saver compression, which overcomes the challenges in compressing high-resolution audio and video. With this breakthrough, Pied Piper won TechCrunch Disrupt and drew the attention of venture capitalists. While Bachman’s other insightful quotes can’t be shared here due to the colorful language that he expresses himself with, the lesson is that data reduction and management of high-res audio and video content is a challenge that is increasingly being faced by companies in all industries – and that’s where Quantum’s StorNext platform comes in.

So how does the StorNext data management platform work?

The building blocks of the StorNext architecture include primary storage, extended online storage, tape archives, and the cloud—all powered by the StorNext high-performance shared storage file system and advanced data management software.

Maximize scale and collaboration: Enables geographically dispersed teams to collaborate on large sets of large files while optimizing performance at scale.

Flexible access: Fits seamlessly into your existing storage and networking infrastructure to lower administrative costs and increase investment protection.
