StorNext 5 data management software manages file sharing for complex workflows in StorNext scale-out storage environments, for files stored on primary disk, extended online storage, and tape. And while StorNext 5 meets demanding performance requirements, enables customers to scale to hundreds of petabytes, and integrates easily into collaborative workflows—that’s not why customers choose it. They choose StorNext 5 because it’s all of that—combined. The optimal balance of performance, scale, flexibility, and economy.
High-performance access to data is no longer a "nice-to-have."
It’s a critical requirement in order to stay competitive and meet demanding schedules. Which is why Quantum’s scale-out storage offerings are built on StorNext 5 data management software. StorNext 5 is singularly focused on delivering extreme streaming performance to enable fast ingest and shared access—making it the ideal choice for collaboration on large sets of large files.
Data growth is a fact of life.
More files, bigger files, and advanced workflows that can turn all this data into insight and action. Today, more than ever, scale matters. StorNext 5 data management software is designed to enable collaboration on large sets of large files. And with its policy-based tiering, StorNext 5 gives you cost-effective options to preserve vast amounts of data for the future.
Enables file sharing across different technologies to fit your workflow.
Use StorNext SAN clients over Fibre Channel for the most demanding high-performance workflows. Or enable users to share files over IP, with StorNext LAN clients at speeds up to 50% faster than NFS and CIFS. Deploy StorNext with clients that run Linux, Windows, UNIX, or Mac OS—they all work. And with StorNext’s policy-based tiering, you can integrate different types of storage into a single namespace that can include SSDs, spinning disk, object storage, and LTO/LTFS tape. Now that’s flexible.
Many customers tell us the value of tiered storage is in the economics.
The ability to automatically migrate data from one type of storage to another—over time, by policy. And tiering empowers you to move less-frequently used data to the most cost-effective, “green” storage with best-in-class data integrity. But the real value in tiered storage comes from transparency. Even when a file has been tiered to a different type of storage, the file looks like it’s right where you left it. So your users can find what they need. No distractions, no compromise.
