Potentially career limiting self-confession – I’m not a Patriot’s fan. Even after living in Boston for a number of years,
More than ever, our culture today seems to be a land of extreme viewpoints. You’re either a Liberal or Conservative,
The quote “Data is to this century what oil was to the last” is one that profoundly resonates with me. In the early 20th century, it was oil that powered the new machines that reshaped both the world economy and political landscape. Fast-forward to the second decade of the 21st century, and the parallels are readily apparent – data is changing how we work, how we live, and just as importantly, the kinds of products and services organizations we are now bringing to market.
I recently had the privilege of participating in this year’s annual iRODS users group meeting in Durham, NC. Aside from interacting with a great group of people, I solidified some of my views on the value companies can get from iRODS deployments, and really clarified how iRODS and Quantum solutions complement each other. I’m definitely excited that Quantum has joined the iRODS consortium and started product testing.
Rapid advances in laboratory instruments are redefining IT requirements for life science organizations. To more quickly and completely analyze the tremendous volumes of data produced by next-generation sequencing (NGS) and cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) instruments, organizations are increasingly investing in additional super computing resources to crunch the larger data sets these instruments are generating on a daily basis.
Like most video production and post-production studios, your organization is probably implementing new tools to meet rising demand for finished content in multiple, high-resolution formats. Perhaps you are upgrading software or buying powerful new editing platforms that can manipulate and master such large files. However, to ensure that your workflow doesn’t have any bottlenecks in streaming 4K content, especially in an all-IP storage environment, understanding what kind of performance your storage infrastructure can deliver should be a high priority.
It’s now been two months after a very rewarding NAB conference, and as the relentless pace of digital transformation in the M&E industry continues to accelerate, Quantum in parallel also hasn’t let our proverbial foot off the gas.
Requests for new video content are multiplying fast. Your company’s marketing group needs you to create product videos and customer success stories to support the next product launch. The events team wants you to post executive keynote addresses from an upcoming conference—preferably within a day after each talk is given. And as your company expands its salesforce, you need to produce a new series of training videos to bring team members up to speed.

I recently found myself in need of a new vehicle. It wasn’t necessarily because my old one was breaking down or in bad shape. My situation had simply changed over time such that the car I now have no longer meets my needs. In my case, I needed more room for a growing family and wanted better gas mileage. Unfortunately, the car wasn’t designed to easily or inexpensively make those improvements. It also started to cost me a lot more to maintain. This got me thinking about the similarities with legacy scale-out NAS solutions.
