Quantum’s latest version of its award-winning parallel file system – StorNext 7 – introduces the new File System Pools feature to automate data placement on NVMe and HDD storage for high-throughput, low-latency workloads. In addition, this newest StorNext version is much easier to use and offers a redesigned and more intuitive user interface. The StorNext 7 File System is a key addition to the company’s new portfolio of offerings to classify, manage and protect unstructured data across its lifecycle, and is another step in Quantum’s strategy to be the leading provider of data and storage management services for video and unstructured data, especially video workflows.
Organizations that need to ingest and process video, digital images, and other large unstructured data sets are increasingly turning to NVMe storage because of its drama
tic performance advantages over traditional SSD and HDD storage. By implementing NVMe in a StorNext file system environment, StorNext accelerates throughput for streaming workloads for fast ingest of large data sets and improved processing, editing, and analysis of video and other forms of unstructured data. NVMe is also enabling customers to gain back valuable data center space by replacing racks of HDD storage with compact NVMe storage servers.
Now available in StorNext 7 software, StorNext File System Pools enable administrators to define pools of NVMe, SSD, and HDD within their file system and create policies to move files and folders between those pools automatically. As a result, files move seamlessly between pools for greater performance at a lower overall cost.
StorNext 7 offers expanded web services APIs that provide new ways to query metadata, automate data movement, and configure and manage the file system. An all-new user interface makes the StorNext File System significantly easier to navigate and manage.
StorNext 7 is available via a simplified, capacity-based licensing model that better aligns software services with customer value.
