Clusters can scale capacity and performance together or independently to reach hundreds of petabytes and terabytes-per-second performance. Single client connections (SMB, NFS, or high-performance client) can achieve more than 3x the performance of competitive enterprise NAS offerings.
Xcellis Scale-out NAS leverages Quantum’s 15 years of data management experience built into StorNext®. Xcellis data management provides automatic tiering between SSD, disk, tape, object storage and public cloud. Copies can be created for content distribution, data protection and disaster recovery.
With a simple installation and setup, in as little as 30 minutes, Xcellis Scale-out NAS provides a modern administrative GUI with in-depth monitoring, alerting and management functions, plus rapid scanning and search. Xcellis Scale-out NAS is designed to integrate with the highest performance Ethernet networks through SMB and NFS interfaces.
Xcellis Scale-out NAS makes it possible to create more value with new data—or remonetize existing data—using the Xcellis artificial intelligence (AI) data enhancement capabilities. Xcellis is the only scale-out NAS platform with integrated AI for on-premise data to enable active interrogation of data—such as events, objects or faces, words and sentiments—along multiple axes to automatically generate new, custom metadata. This effectively opens new possibilities for queries, searches, and analyses.
Xcellis Scale-out NAS environments powered by StorNext are dynamic workspaces where multiple users interact with valuable data through a range of applications. StorNext is one of the most hands-off data management platforms available today. StorNext Connect delivers enhanced insight into system status plus single-screen manageability to provide even greater control and visibility to users’ workspaces.
With an intuitive and modern interface, StorNext Connect enables simplified and straightforward installation and configuration of all Xcellis Scale-out NAS appliances in a matter of minutes.
Provides current statistics along with historical and future trends for performance, throughput, and latency of all file systems at a high level plus a drill-down to individual components.
Makes it easier to set up and manage workflows by shortening the time required to deploy or upgrade a scale-out NAS environment.
The StorNext shared storage platform, which comes with every Xcellis appliance, is purpose-built for managing large, data-intensive workloads, with the ability to efficiently and cost-effectively scale as needed to satisfy demanding business requirements. Advanced data management capabilities empower customers to optimize capacity through policy-driven, automated storage tiering, thus reducing the need for costly primary storage. Files can be automatically and transparently moved from primary storage to tape, object storage or the cloud—all while optimizing performance and maintaining high availability.Learn More
