What is Extended Online Storage?

Built on next-generation object storage technology, Lattus is durable online storage that scales to hundreds of petabytes more economically than primary storage, with better performance than tape. As a policy-driven tier in a StorNext scale-out storage solution, Lattus enables you to extend primary storage with scalable and more cost-effective online storage—ideal for large repositories that have unpredictable access patterns, and for organizations struggling with the challenges of data growth.

Scale in whatever direction you need: capacity, bandwidth, users, sites.

As an extension of your primary storage, Lattus scales capacity to hundreds of petabytes, with the bandwidth to match. And Lattus supports the large number of concurrent users in today’s collaborative environments. Lattus also offers several different “on-ramp” options that enable you to easily integrate it into your workflows, leveraging S3, NAS, and of course StorNext®. Plus Lattus can spread data across different geographies and sites, to ensure access and availability.

Durability matters when preserving data for the long-term.

Because you need to ensure your data will be there when you need it. Lattus includes self-healing algorithms that continuously check data integrity and correct errors on the fly. And Lattus is designed to be resilient in the face of device failures or site disaster. The best part: Lattus durability policies are configurable and changeable, letting you decide the amount of error resiliency.

Low-latency means workflows get predictably fast access.

With its low-latency, Lattus is an ideal fit as a tier in a StorNext scale-out storage solution—a storage tier that sits between primary storage and tape archives. And with its multi-geo capability, Lattus also enables distributed access to shared data, a critical capability in today’s collaborative environments.

Finally, a tier of online storage that scales and performs—affordably.

Lattus object storage lowers operating costs. With Lattus, drive failures do not require immediate drive replacement and rebuilds. Lattus also eliminates costly technology refresh challenges with its self-migrating feature. And the concept of unscheduled maintenance goes away due to the error resiliency and redundancy in Lattus. Tiering data from StorNext primary storage to Lattus can make massive data growth manageable—and affordable.

Lattus Object Storage Extends Your Online Storage

Lattus deployment contains: object storage software, controller nodes, storage nodes, and network switches. And Lattus has multiple on-ramp options to integrate easily into workflows that need NFS, CIFS, or StorNext access to data. With its native cloud interface, Lattus can also support applications that use HTTP REST and S3 protocols. When attached to StorNext primary storage to affordably extend your online storage—it’s the StorNext policy-driven tiering that you’ll probably value the most.

Solving the World’s Hardest Data Management Problems

We were keen on looking at object storage as a solution for the future, having looked at a number of other options. We already have an existing StorNext system, so the Quantum solution for us seemed an ideal marriage.
