Cost-effectively Accelerate Video Workflows

Across multiple industries, whether it be media, government, or even autonomous vehicle development, businesses are working with digital media that is constantly pushing the limits of underlying storage infrastructure. Designed and engineered from the ground up to support these demanding video workflows, QXS™ is tuned to deliver high levels of sequential I/O performance, with up to 12 GB/s read performance, 10 GB/s write performance, and 750K random read performance per system. Delivering this performance are highly dense 2U and 5U chassis options, offering up to 6.7 PB of capacity per fully expanded system.  


Exceed Requirements, Stay Within Budget

Architecting a storage infrastructure that supports increasing volumes of data and accessibility requirements, and doing so within budget, can be challenging. By offering higher levels of configurability than competitive storage arrays, and with the ability to create a storage environment that precisely supports individual workflow requirements, QXS storage arrays provide an optimal foundation on which to base your business operations.
