Optimise the use of NVMe with StorNext file system pools
Organisations that need to ingest and process video, digital images, and other large unstructured data sets are increasingly turning to NVMe storage because of its dramatic 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.
Building on award winning data management capabilities
Quantum continues an aggressive pace of development with StorNext. In May the company introduced StorNext 6.4, with enhancements including self-describing objects to make cloud content more accessible, and improved retrieval speed from large object stores. The File System Pools feature builds on these capabilities for more efficient data management.
Now easier to configure and manage
StorNext 7 offers expanded web services APIs that provide new ways to query metadata, automate data movement, configure and manage the file system. An all-new user interface makes the StorNext File System significantly easier to navigate and manage.
Simplified, capacity-based licensing model
StorNext 7 is available via a simplified, capacity-based licensing model that better aligns software services with customer value.
