Improve Productivity and Time to Value with a Simplified StorNext User Experience

The Quantum H4000 Series is a line of high-performance storage 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 enables easier and more flexible deployment options.

In this new software-defined architecture, StorNext 7 file services, data services, and block services run virtually on a single platform. StorNext 7 has been virtualized, and significant architectural components such as the management layer and APIs have been containerized in a Docker environment.

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 toward enabling 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.

Powerful Hardware Delivers Best Performance and Value

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 and 2U24 that support different SSD and HDD storage types, and the H4000 Series can be scaled up using optional JBODs.

Cutting Edge Hardware Delivers Best Performance and Value

The H4000 Series 2U24 model comes with SSD or 10K RPM HDDs, for latency-sensitive workloads, while the 2U12 model supports NL-SAS HDDs and is ideal for sequential streaming workloads and lower-cost storage options. Every H4000 model has a dual controller hardware architecture using high-performance multi-core AMD CPUs and offers flexible networking options that include 100 GbE, 25 GbE, and 32 Gb Fibre Channel.
