Transparent Data
Access and Management

A simple-to-manage foundation under a single file system

In a video surveillance workflow, easy data access from any client, at any time is highly important. Maintaining transparent access across different types of storage tiers is a common problem, often causing disparate pools of storage with high performance storage from one vendor and backing up data to tape from another. Without a single-file solution, there is a need for IT to get involved in order to access and look up information. Time is of the essence when a security professional or law enforcement agency is trying to find a file from a specific date and time. Being able to configure a storage solution that is as simple as looking at a document on a C: Drive means you don’t have to worry about the physical file location, ultimately saving you time and money all while increasing your efficiency.


Quantum is the Foundation of
Security & Surveillance Infrastructures


Ease of Access & Management

For end-users, all data appears as a single file system, making data management no more difficult than managing a C: drive on a laptop. As a result, the user sees a single view, making the files easily accessible, regardless of which tier the data resides.

On the backend, retention and data policies can be automatically set to handle data migration so there is no need for manual management by end-users.


Quickly Access Data

Gain immediate access—StorNext enables quick access to files no matter which layer of storage your data is on.

More files, bigger files, and advanced workflows are common in video surveillance infrastructures and can turn data from insight to action. Having a solution that is built for unstructured data or video workflows makes it easier to access data without depending on IT support.


Open Integration

Supporting all major platforms and granting end-users the freedom of choice allows for direct access from any client.

Quantum's multi-tier solution is compliant with all major platforms, operating systems, and networks and integrates seamlessly with VMS and analytics software. This enables security professionals to integrate the solution into their existing infrastructure without being locked into a single vendor or platform.

The Value of Multi-Tier Storage Comes from Transparency

Transparent access means that files still appear in their original file system location, so you don’t need to worry about the physical file location, ultimately saving you time and increasing your efficiency.

Having transparent storage solutions and workflow applications is important to enable surveillance infrastructures to be integrated into one comprehensive solution for increased performance and access.
