StorNext®, a combination of a high-speed, parallel file system and data management software, was created to solve the daunting problem of sharing, preserving, and analyzing massive volumes of unstructured data. Recognized as a leader in scale-out storage for high-volume, rich media workflows, we have taken these capabilities even further by continuously developing the software and focusing on advancements most needed by our customer ecosystem.
With a unique combination of performance and management, StorNext 6 extends its power to media and entertainment and other highly data-intensive environments such as genomics, academic research, video surveillance, oil and gas, and government security.

StorNext creates a storage environment that achieves the unattainable goal of every other storage system—simultaneously providing high performance and advanced data management for large, data-driven workloads.
It’s a critical requirement for modern global organizations to stay competitive and meet increasingly demanding production timelines. This is why Quantum’s scale-out storage is focused on delivering unmatched end-to-end performance. From LUN sizes to LUN slicing, stripe groups to stripe breadth, and numerous client mount options, storage administrators can make sure they are deriving the most performance possible from their hardware.
StorNext is designed to enable geographically dispersed teams to collaborate on multiple sets of large files, while at the same time optimizing performance at scale. And now with the unique ability to provide cross-protocol locking for shared files across SAN, NFS, and SMB, StorNext is an optimal solution for organizations that need to share content across both Fibre Channel and Ethernet.
Only Quantum StorNext allows for such a high number of configurable options to optimize the entire data path between user and storage media, and provides coordinated multi-protocol accessibility. So whether your choice is NAS, SAN, IB, or NVMe access, StorNext allows you to maximize your networking investment and still function effectively – even across hybrid architectures.
StorNext can automatically move data across multiple tiers of storage by policy, while maintaining shared global access. This tiering empowers users to efficiently move less-frequently accessed data to the most cost-effective, “green” storage with best-in-class data protection. And even when a file has been tiered to a different type of storage, it still appears local, so users have continuous access to their data. No distractions, no compromises.
With Quantum StorNext, the sky is the limit. It has allowed us to at least double the speed of our workflow, take on four times more projects and process images that are about ten times higher resolution than before.David Morgan
Our focus is on scalable and flexible solutions that can integrate the various environments of content production. Our partnership with AD Digital and with Quantum was fundamental in giving us quality products that satisfy our needs.Luciano Faco
I’ve been really impressed with the Quantum organization and products. The whole experience has been so stellar I just can’t recommend the company highly enough.Kory Willis
When we were presented with Quantum’s storage solution, we were certain that it would meet our longterm needs.Gilvani Moletta
Quantum's StorNext Pro 4K solution provided a fully Xsan compatible foundation to address today's workflow challenges and future growth needs.Chris Collum
StorNext gives us the performance to do multicam editing efficiently. Production teams can stay focused on set, we have greater flexibility for editing, and the entire workflow is faster.Justin Lang
StorNext provides a single, transparent namespace for the entire scientific archive. Researchers can access data easily, no matter where that data physically resides—on disk or tape.Brant Kelley
Quantum has been a great partner on both the technology and business side...and helped us build this business. It’s been a great fit.Wally Lang
It’s safe to say that the installation of the Quantum solution has made our video productivity at least double what it was without it. Without Quantum, upwards of 50% of those videos, and [associated] revenue, would not have been actualized.Bill Amstutz
StorNext allows us to easily scale our archive so we can support new satellite missions and collect additional data well into the future.Mark Curtis
By using the StorNext and integrating workflow applications, we deployed this system in a few weeks, and it was up and running in plenty of time for our preseason games.Jay O’Brien
The Xcellis solution specified by StorExcel not only enables us to take advantage of Quantum's powerful StorNext platform but also allows us to start with the capacity and performance we need now, and then scale up the storage system economically as those needs change.Andrew Moraski
