Quantum StorNext® FX clients are ideal for Apple Xsan environments that need to add Windows or Linux to their existing SAN. This is common when needing to augment existing Xsan Mac workflows with Windows or Linux software tools such as editors, special effects, rendering, or transcoding tools. The added Windows and Linux StorNext FX clients then enjoy full access to Xsan volumes and can be managed with the existing Xsan Admin software for easy integration. StorNext FX leverages the latest StorNext technology and supports the same versions of Windows and Linux as StorNext. Best of all, existing StorNext FX 2.0 and StorNext FX 2.2 customers with current support contracts can easily upgrade to newer versions of StorNext FX with more platform support.
