Designed for high performance, efficiency, reliability and scalability, Quantum's QXS hybrid storage portfolio optimizes flash and disk to significantly lower operating and capital costs. Powerful features include real-time, automated and intelligent tiering, plus one-button configuration to meet the demands of specific applications and workflows.
Keeping in-demand data in the highest-performing storage is the smart thing to do. QXS hybrid storage incorporates intelligent data access algorithms to ensure the most requested data is in the highest-performing tier seamlessly and automatically. This enables the optimal use of higher-cost, high-performance storage.
QXS hybrid systems maximize performance regardless of disk type or configuration—all disk, all flash or flash and disk. With as little as 10% capacity dedicated to flash, QXS hybrid performance is up to 200,000 IOPS and is on par with all-flash arrays at a fraction of the cost. Designed for demanding sequential I/O performance, we use multi-core processing, active-active controllers, and separate paths for internal management and external data access.
QXS hybrid storage is offered with one-button configurations. These one-button configurations are optimized for specific workflows and applications that have been extensively tested by Quantum. There is no risk or uncertainty when you install pre-defined, thoroughly tested QXS hybrid storage systems.
Achieve 99.999% availability by design.With QXS industry-leading reliability, you can rest assured that your mission-critical applications will always be available. With the dual, redundant design, QXS systems eliminate single points of failure. Designed to meet military and telecommunications specifications, the systems will perform without failure in extreme conditions.
QXS true hybrid storage systems’ automatic, intelligent tiering optimizes flash and disk to keep performance up and costs down. For most applications, up to 95% of IOPS can come from as little as 10% flash. Flexibility and scalability are required to manage an efficient storage environment. QXS systems are available in a variety of configurations, including up to 3 tiers of storage within an array, and seamlessly support additional SSDs, HDDs, and expansion chassis when needed.
The StorNext approach provides the IT team with a wide range of options to meet its future needs. Those include allowing the team to scale performance and capacity separately—and allowing the archive to grow huge while keeping the active performance storage as small as possible to control costs.
We believe that the QXS arrays will give us the performance advantages of solidstate drives while keeping costs low. We already have the migration software [QTier] in place.Andrew Foulsham
The QXS system had all the features and performance that we were looking for, saved us money over alternatives. The support from Quantum has been very, very good. We expect the new system to have the same exceptional reliability that we have seen from the platform over the last six years.James Thompson
Duke University’s Blue Devil Network deployed a Quantum StorNext storage solution to gain capacity, performance, and accessibility for its fastgrowing volume of content.
On a daily basis, the speed enabled by this new edit workflow makes it possible for MNCTV, RCTI TV, and Global TV to get content to air more quickly.Kuswandi Aslan
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
