Quantum Xcellis QXS-324 SAN Storage System
Primary Storage Optimized for Demanding Video Workflows
Organizations that work with massive volumes of rich media constantly face challenges related to accessing content, preserving it over the long term, and protecting it from external and internal threats. Teams also need to manipulate, analyze, and edit content to extract its maximum value within tight production deadlines.
To meet these demands, a storage foundation needs to be scalable, flexible for varying requirements, and accessible across multiple geographic locations, while delivering unparalleled performance and reliability. Tested in the most demanding data-intensive environments, Quantum Xcellis® high-performance shared storage is the core building block for a truly optimized and cost-effective end-to-end workflow.
UNPARALLELED PLAYBACK PERFORMANCE
Whether you are a post-production editor working on parallel streams of 8K content for playout in immersive virtual reality, or an autonomous vehicle manufacturer optimizing your latest self-driving software algorithms based on real-world test results, having a high-speed storage infrastructure delivering data where and when it is needed most is critical. Now leveraging the benefits that come with an improved hardware platform, Xcellis will provide even higher levels of streaming performance for video playback, with even greater reliability. So whether it's over a NAS, SAN, IB, or NVMeoF storage architecture, or all simultaneously, Xcellis provides the performance needed for the most demanding video workflows.
COMPREHENSIVE UNIFIED ACCESSIBILITY
Business projects today can have long time horizons, span multiple geographies, and involve hundreds-if not thousands-of contributors. In this context, supporting a collaborative environment is no longer optional-it's mandatory. Not only does Xcellis present data across all logical storage tiers in one addressable global namespace, but it also allows native accessibility from users running macOS, Linux, and Windows. And with the ability to simultaneously access this data over Ethernet or Fibre Channel networking, Xcellis provides the right level of performance to the right people, improves collaboration, and simplifies deployments.
COST-EFFECTIVE SCALABILITY WITH ZERO DOWNTIME
Other scalable storage systems require additional system acceleration units or compute-heavy expansion nodes in order to scale. These units increase the cost and network complexity of scaling. Xcellis provides unmatched flexibility by enabling nodes and storage arrays to be scaled up or out independently, so every dollar invested pays off in more capacity and greater bandwidth. Furthermore, by providing a gateway to a multi-tiered storage infrastructure that incorporates flash, disk, tape, and cloud-based storage, organizations can optimize performance and capacity without overinvesting.
INTEGRATED DATA PROTECTION FUNCTIONALITY
Xcellis offers a variety of important features that ensure data protection of valuable content over its entire lifecycle. Customers can easily copy files to offsite tiers and take advantage of versioning to roll back to an earlier point in time, as well as set up automated replication for disaster recovery purposes-all of which is designed to protect valuable digital assets.
