Streamline Your Storage Workflow and Deploy Faster in a Unified StorNext User Experience

The Quantum H4000 Series is a line of highly available dual controller appliances for hosting the StorNext® 7 File System. The H4000 Series takes advantage of the latest StorNext 7 software-defined architecture, which dramatically simplifies the StorNext user experience, and dramatically simplifies and speeds your shared storage deployments.

In this new software-defined architecture, StorNext 7 has been virtualized, and significant architectural components such as the management layer and APIs have been containerized and pre-configured. StorNext 7 file services, data services, and block services can now run virtually on a single, easy to manage platform.

Delivering a Simplified StorNext User Experience

This new cloud-ready architecture delivers greater efficiency, flexibility, and a dramatically simplified user experience than traditional architectures. This represents a major architectural step to enable public and hybrid-cloud deployments of the StorNext 7 File System, and makes it easier to use StorNext in more places than ever.

StorNext 7 File System cluster from a single interface

When operating StorNext 7 on an H4000 appliance, administrators can manage and monitor the H4000 storage directly from the StorNext 7 user interface, making it easy to manage an entire StorNext 7 File System cluster from a single interface and improving productivity.

Choose Your Ideal Configuration in a Highly-Available, Flexible Design

By pairing this software-defined architecture with powerful computing architecture standards like PCIe 4, an entire StorNext environment can be consolidated into a very small footprint, simplifying management and administration.

The H4000 Series is available in two server form factors, a 2U12 that offers 12 storage bays, and 2U24 that offers 24 storage bays. Each system can support different SSD and HDD storage, and by easily expanded for additional capacity using optional SAS expansion systems.

Cutting Edge Hardware Delivers Best Performance and Value

The H4000 Series 2U24 model offers several capacities of SSD or 10K RPM HDDs ideal for latency-sensitive workloads, while the 2U12 model supports NL-SAS HDDs and is ideal for sequential streaming workloads and building cost-effective, scalable storage capacity.

Every H4000 model has a dual controller hardware architecture built on PCIe 4.0, end-to-end 12G SAS connectivity, high-performance multi-core AMD CPUs, and offers a wide choice of networking options including 100 GbE, 25 GbE, and up to 32 Gb Fibre Channel.
