New Quantum Foundation for StorNext Pro workgroups
Quantum has extended its line of StorNext Pro solutions with the introduction of StorNext Pro Foundation, a low-cost, integrated shared storage system designed specifically for smaller workgroups. Built on StorNext 5 collaboration and workflow software, StorNext Pro Foundation brings the capabilities of Quantum’s StorNext Pro Solutions to a new audience of media professionals in post and broadcast as well as those managing corporate and government video.
StorNext Pro Foundation provides full Xsan compatibility, enabling smaller workgroups — such as ad agencies, corporate video production departments and houses of worship that create significant amounts of video — to refresh or upgrade their Xsan storage environments. Current StorNext users can also leverage StorNext Pro Foundation to add smaller workgroups for graphics, rendering and EFX.
StorNext Pro Foundation comes in either 48TB or 96TB configurations, which respectively support five and seven simultaneous Xsan/Windows/Linux SAN clients, including two Windows/Linux SAN clients as core system components. Either configuration can support up to four file systems (volumes) comprising 100 million files.
