The theme for Quantum’s presence next week at NAB is all about “Power What’s Next”. The messaging plays along the line of being ready in your storage infrastructure to handle the next big change in your content workflow. We’ve known about the impact of 4K or even 6K on storage infrastructures and are now even learning about how HDR significantly impacts storage performance requirements. What this means for you, is that you need to envision your environment three years from now when you make storage refresh decisions today. At NAB, Quantum will show you how to Power what’s Next in collaboration with some of our key Quantum Advantage Partners.
In case you missed the news, last November we released Xcellis, our next generation of StorNext-based appliances. With Xcellis, we re-architected the heart of StorNext solutions—metadata control and high-performance storage—with a new converged architecture that stores user data and metadata in a single array. Xcellis offers everything you expect from StorNext: an open system platform, high-performance streaming, extreme scalability, policy-based migration, choice of storage tiers, and an extensive workflow partner ecosystem. But there are three capabilities that are making Xcellis a hot selling product, particularly for our customers in media and entertainment.
