StorNext Metadata Appliances can be combined with StorNext’s policy-based storage tiering to give customers virtually unlimited space for Big Data. Lower-priority data is migrated to less expensive storage tiers—disk or tape—while remaining accessible through the StorNext File System’s global namespace. The StorNext Metadata Appliances are archive-ready for integration with the StorNext AEL Archive and
StorNext Storage Manager. StorNext solutions for Big Data provide performance and scalability while significantly lowering total cost of ownership relative to traditional storage approaches.
The StorNext M441Q Metadata Appliance includes dual metadata controller nodes, a dedicated metadata array, and factory-installed and licensed software—engineered, tested, and certified by Quantum. Software includes 10 StorNext File System SAN client licenses for Linux, Windows or UNIX, a High Availability license for failover, and a Distributed Data Mover (DDM) license to extend archive performance.
The StorNext M441Q supports 2 or 4 file systems and 500 million files with the optional expansion kit. Utilzing a dedicated metadata array supprting eight hard drives plus one hot-spare, the StorNext M4411Q comes with Quad 8Gb FC connectors per metadata controller.
