From DNA sequencing to hi-definition video surveillance to seismic exploration, customers across industries are experiencing tremendous growth in unstructured digital assets called big data. This digital content is very high in volume, is growing at high rates, and has great value to the business or institution. Quantum's StorNext Appliances are purpose-built for big data with big files, providing customers with high-performance, highly-scalable solutions that are cost-effective and easy to manage.
The StorNext AEL Archives combine data management policies with cost-effective tape storage to deliver PBs of data accessible to users through a simple file system interface. The StorNext AEL500 Archive allows customers to retain over 600 TBs (over 400 slots). By combining the StorNext file system capabilities with the StorNext AEL, customers can store frequently-accessed data on high-performance storage and move seldom-accessed data to inexpensive tape media that requires very little power, cooling, or floor space. The data migration and tiering is all transparent to the customer - when a user saves a file to the StorNext file system, it remains accessible, regardless of its current location.
