QXS 12G Storage Arrays
Quantum QXS 12G Storage
High-performance, reliable storage arrays designed to cost-effectively accelerate video workflows.
Exceed Requirements, Stay Within Budget
Architecting a storage infrastructure that supports increasing volumes of data and accessibility requirements, and doing so within budget, can be challenging. By offering higher levels of configurability than competitive storage arrays, and with the ability to create a storage environment that precisely supports individual workflow requirements, QXS™ storage arrays provide an optimal foundation on which to base your business operations.
Cost-effectively Accelerate Video Workflows
Across multiple industries, whether it be media, government, or even autonomous vehicle development, businesses are working with digital media that is constantly pushing the limits of underlying storage infrastructure. Designed and engineered from the ground up to support these demanding video workflows, QXS is tuned to deliver high levels of sequential I/O performance, with over 7 GB/s and 320K IOPs per chassis. Delivering this performance are highly dense 2U and 5U chassis options, offering up to 5.4 PB of capacity per system.
