Xcellis® high-performance workflow storage is primary storage optimized for demanding video workflows – powered by StorNext®, the industry’s fastest and most reliable streaming file system. Xcellis optimizes video production tasks, accelerates time to insight, and empowers organizations to do more with their data.
Xcellis workflow storage enables high-speed shared access to video and other rich media content. Powered by StorNext advanced data management software, it includes an Xcellis Workflow Director for system management and client connectivity, and RAID storage for data. This combination of software, compute, and storage is engineered to solve the world’s biggest storage challenges—and enables you to focus on your workflows rather than the storage. So you can do what you do best.
Xcellis workflow storage enables a virtually limitless range of configurations and options. It combines support for up to 64 individually configurable volumes, multiple disk performance profiles and unified access across network protocols. Whether it’s over a NAS, SAN, IB or NVMe-oF storage architecture, or all simultaneously, Xcellis provides the performance needed for the most demanding video workflows.
Business projects today can have long time horizons, span multiple geographies, and involve hundreds, if not thousands, of contributors. Not only does Xcellis present data across all logical storage tiers in one addressable global namespace, but it also allows native accessibility from users running macOS, Linux, and Windows.
Xcellis offers a variety of important features that ensure data-protection of valuable content over its entire lifecycle. Customers can easily copy files to off-site tiers and take advantage of versioning to roll back to an earlier point in time, as well as set up automated replication for disaster recovery purposes – all of which is designed to protect valuable digital assets.
Explosive growth in file sizes and quantities is now the norm. Organizations need storage that scales easily and continuously, without costly forklift upgrades. Xcellis can be sized to precisely fit current requirements and scaled to meet future demands simply by adding storage arrays. Capacity and performance can grow independently, and no additional accelerators or controllers are needed to reach petabyte scale.
Xcellis® is the industry’s first storage solution to comprehensively address the needs of high-value data environments, where an organization’s revenue and products are all built around data. The latest evolution of Quantum’s market-leading, high-performance shared storage platform, Xcellis Workflow Storage is engineered to deliver the management capabilities and robust features of enterprise NAS with the cost-effective scaling organizations demand to address modern data growth.
The Xcellis scalability was also a real advantage for us. It let us add performance and storage capacity independently—which means we’ll be able to grow to meet future demands while avoiding forklift upgrades.Steve Spear
