StorNext 6 Release: New at IBC
A series of substantive updates within the StorNext 6 platform demonstrates Quantum's ongoing leadership in workflow storage with a particular focus on enabling high-resolution workflows. StorNext 6 highlights include:
 
* Quality of Service - A new quality of service (QoS) feature that empowers facilities to tune and optimize performance across all client workstations, and on a machine-by-machine basis, in turn guaranteeing that more demanding tasks, such as 4K playback or color correction, get the bandwidth they need to maintain uncompromising video quality.
 
* FlexSpace(TM) Shared Archive - Addressing the challenges of global "always-on" production workflows, the new FlexSpace feature allows multiple instances of StorNext, located anywhere in the world, to share a common content repository. As a result, any user within a StorNext environment can access, browse and pull files from a shared workspace. With this game-changing new capability, a creative team member working in one city can create content that is automatically stored to the common repository and immediately available for further work by team members working elsewhere without it being expressly shipped or explicitly transported to them.
 
* FlexSync(TM) Multisite Synchronization - FlexSync is a powerful new capability that provides a fast, flexible and simple way to synchronize content between multiple StorNext systems in a highly manageable and automated fashion. FlexSync supports one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-one file-replication scenarios and can be configured to operate at almost any level: specific files, specific folders or entire file systems. By leveraging enhancements in file-system metadata monitoring, FlexSync recognizes changes instantly and can immediately begin reflecting those changes on another system.

 

FlexTier(TM) Public and Private Cloud Access 

Quantum will highlight its FlexTier cloud-access feature, which makes it easy to integrate existing public-cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage (private cloud) into a StorNext environment and into familiar media workflows. FlexTier currently supports Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe and Scality RING as archive tiers. As a result, content owners can get all the content access and visibility benefits provided by StorNext, protect their investments in private-cloud object storage systems and public-cloud storage services, and reduce the cost and complexity of cloud storage administration.
 

New Xcellis(TM) 4K Reference Architectures 

Quantum will highlight its new 4K reference architectures, created from exhaustive real-world 4K testing and suitably scaled for facilities from small to large. In the testing, all Xcellis solutions were validated under intense 4K workloads, reflecting industry-leading capabilities for streaming 4K to collaborative teams of content creators. The testing included characterization of large- and small-form-factor disk drives and all-flash arrays in different configurations of compressed and uncompressed 4K formats. The resulting reference architectures have been tuned to deliver predictable-stream-count workloads for the full range of 4K formats. 
 
 
Veritone Artificial Intelligence Platform in the StorNext Environment
During IBC2017, Quantum will showcase Veritone's multi-engine artificial intelligence (AI) platform in a Quantum StorNext(R)-managed environment. Veritone(R) aiWARE(TM) a hybrid on-premise and cloud version of Veritone's best-in-class, cloud-based AI platform will be offered as an integrated solution with StorNext workflow storage. This combination will allow users to leverage the power of Veritone's cognitive analytics along with top cognitive engines in areas such as object recognition, optical character recognition and transcription to extract new value from their on-premise video and audio content without moving it to the cloud. 
 
 
Quantum Demo at IBC2017:
Live Multistream 4K and 8K Color Correction, Editorial and Virtual Reality Workflows
 
Within the presentation theater on Quantum's stand, the company will provide demonstrations of live multistream 4K and 8K color correction and editorial workflows. Showcasing the performance leadership of Xcellis and other Quantum storage systems, these demonstrations will give attendees a firsthand look at the remarkable performance levels that can be achieved with the optimal hardware configuration, supported by the powerful StorNext platform.
 
During demonstrations throughout IBC2017, expert creatives will use Quantum's Xcellis high-performance workflow storage with SGO's Mistika Ultima for grading and finishing for UHD, HDR, HFR, 8K and VR workflows. Demonstrations also will highlight the new performance and collaboration features of StorNext 6.
 
Company Quote:
"The IBC show always gives us a great opportunity to sit down with current and prospective customers and talk about how the latest refinements and enhancements to the StorNext platform can help them address their workflow and business needs. We're excited about featuring StorNext 6 at the show for the first time, and we think attendees will find our new high-resolution reference architectures, including a flash-based configuration, very compelling and a helpful tool in configuring storage optimally for their particular higher-resolution media workflows."
Dave Frederick, senior director for media and entertainment at Quantum
 
Company Overview:
