Capture, disseminate and preserve valuable satellite and intelligence data.
Increases in the resolution of video, rapid advances in sensor technologies, the democratization of satellite imagery with small sats, and innovations in data fusion—all add up to opportunity. But these technology advances have introduced storage challenges as organizations struggle to keep pace with the massive influx of imagery.
Geospatial teams today need both high-speed capture and shared access to critical data, at a scale never seen before.
StorNext’s reliable and proven high-performance technology lies at the center of some of the most demanding workflows in the geospatial world. StorNext specializes in large files—up to 10 billion of these large files per StorNext cluster—and with its high-speed capture, has become an integral part of high-performance GIS workflows.
Shared Access for All
Intelligence is a team sport. Whether your team has tens, hundreds or thousands of users who need shared access to data, StorNext meets the need with file sharing via SAN, LAN and cloud.
Data growth is a fact of life, especially with geospatial data—more sats, more sensors, more files and bigger files. Today’s geospatial teams need storage solutions that scale big and bigger—and do so affordably.
To manage today’s data growth, you don’t just need scale—you need affordable scale. With tiered storage from Quantum, you get cost-effective tiering and access to files stored on SSD, disk, object storage, tape or cloud.
Built for the Challenges of Today’s Geospatial Archives
The long-term value of geospatial data often lies in its power to be exploited in the future—not just when first collected. Which is why it’s important to preserve mission critical data for future analysis with a scalable storage solution that optimally balances performance, access, and economy. The ability to match the right storage technology to the right data at the right time provides powerful economic benefits in the face of today’s massive data growth.
When you’re managing petascale archives and need to ensure that data is preserved so that it can be connected to some future event—the right scale-out storage solution is invaluable.
Sharing Data Enables Common Operational Picture
Collaboration is a top priority for geospatial analysts. And Xcellis Workflow Storage is designed to enable high-performance shared access to files—across different network topologies, across different client operating systems, and across different file sharing protocols.
It’s not uncommon for StorNext File Systems to be shared by hundreds of users—and with Lattus Object Storage, StorNext data can now be shared using cloud and HTTP REST protocols, too. No other storage platform provides the level of collaboration that is possible with StorNext.

Every Day, NASA's Satellites Beam Down Terabytes of Scientific Data
About the earth, oceans, and atmosphere. This data needs to be processed and made available to climate researchers around the world.
When we looked at the needs of NASMG, we knew that the best system for their highspeed workflows would be an integrated StorNext scaleout storage solution from Quantum.Huang Lei
We needed a robust storage system that could scale to handle massive data sets stored on multiple types of media. We also needed a stable solution that could support 24/7 operation.
Deduplication was a critical technology for what we wanted to do, and we knew Quantum was a pioneer in that technology and had an extremely powerful set of deduplication solutions.Danial Thomas
