Infinite. Online. Durable. Cost Effective.
Keeping “Data Forever” Can Get Costly
Some of our customers have many petabytes of unstructured data – hi-res video content, satellite images, CAD drawings, scientific research data, or other IoT data – that they need to keep forever.
And the value of that data is persistent. It needs to be stored so that it can be analyzed, monetized, or otherwise reused in the future.
Problem is, it can’t be stored on flash forever (too expensive), and in some cases, the latencies of tape may not be acceptable.
Create an Active Archive with Object Storage
Quantum object storage meets the extreme scalability, durability and access requirements of large-scale, long-term archives. It is durable online storage that scales to hundreds of petabytes more economically than primary storage, with better performance than tape.
Erasure-coding technology is used to store objects on disk in the most efficient way, reducing storage costs and providing a self-protecting active archive.
It’s the perfect solution for an active archive – for your digital media assets, for your critical scientific research data, or maybe just for creating a big data lake.
Object Storage Products
Base System Capacity (raw): 720 TB
Maximum system capacity (raw): 19.4 PB
Maximum number of objects: 16.2 Billion
The Quantum Lattus P100 starts with 720 terabytes (TB) of raw storage and scales up in increments of 720 TB to over 2 PB. The system can also scale out across multiple racks or multiple geographic locations. Each system delivers up to 8 GB/sec throughput for high productivity. Its Dynamic Data Placement feature enables the customer to grow the system without re-balancing and avoid forklift upgrades. IT staff can easily add capacity and performance to keep up with high data growth rates and manage it with ease.
Base System Capacity (raw): 840 TB
Maximum system capacity (raw): 52 PB
Maximum number of objects: 43.3 Billion
The Quantum Lattus X100 addresses the challenges of a DIY approach to cloud-scale object storage by delivering an integrated system that can be up and running quickly. Each system is vertically integrated with software, networking and hardware. It scales up from 840 TB (raw), scales out to over 52 PB, and delivers outstanding data consistency, availability and durability.
LATTUS™ OBJECT STORAGE MEETS THE EXTREME SCALABILITY, DURABILITY AND ACCESS REQUIREMENTS OF LARGE-SCALE, LONG-TERM ARCHIVES.
Extreme Scale for Active Archives
As an extension of your primary storage, Quantum object storage scales capacity to hundreds of petabytes, with the bandwidth to match.
Predictably Fast Retrieval Times
Low latency disk storage yields predictably fast retrieval times, independent of physical location.
Durable, Self-Healing Protection from Data Loss
Using field-proven forward error correction code technology, Lattus provides extreme durability to ensure data is protected in the event of device or component failure.
Easy Integration with Existing Workflow
High-speed access to content is available through a variety of access on-ramp. Applications can connect via Quantum’s NAS gateway as well as Lattus native S3 HTTP REST protocol.
Crown Media Selects Lattus Object Storage to Extend Online Storage for Content Explosion
“We have an essentially unlimited archive capacity that lets us bring back assets much faster than before—at disk speed. We’ve eliminated backup but have much better protection—there are always least two copies of the assets, and we have full site loss protection.”

The Ark Stays On Top Of Data Flood With Lattus Object Storage
“We were keen on looking at object storage as a solution for the future, having looked at a number of other options. We already have an existing StorNext system, so the Quantum solution for us seemed an ideal marriage.”
