The volume of data required for mission success is growing at a torrid pace, with no end in sight. Quantum’s multi-tier storage solutions, powered by StorNext, automate data management and data protection across storage tiers, including C2S cloud, saving time and controlling costs without compromising performance.
When intelligence personnel need access to content they can’t waste time searching for files – time is of the essence. The StorNext file system keeps data transparently accessible to authorized users–whether it’s in the C2S cloud or on local disk–from a single namespace, ensuring easy, fast accessibility to all authorized content.
Security is paramount for intelligence agencies. StorNext integration does not disrupt the C2S security, nor introduce any additional security-related management tasks, as cloud security and user authentication are managed by the agencies' C2S account.
C2S provides a variety of storage services to support different data use requirements. The FlexTier™ feature in StorNext provides seamless, automated integration to C2S storage services – including S3 and Glacier – requiring no additional hardware to set up, no programming, and no manual processes.
With StorNext, and the economics of multi-tier storage, intelligence teams can store more data within the same budget.
Automated, policy-based data tiering and data protection ensure the data is in the right place at the right time when needed, and remains protected and accessible without the need for backup software.
The fastest streaming file system and intelligent data tiering across storage technologies – including SSD, disk, object, cloud, and tape—means you can tune performance and capacity independently.
Intelligence is a team sport. StorNext provides authorized team members access to shared files, and can even work concurrently on the same files, enabling greater collaboration.
Today, a clear-eyed assessment of applying cloud technology to meet your agency’s storage needs reveals that there are both pros and cons.
