Quantum Corp. announced plans to unveil two new highly scalable, long-term content preservation options for StorNext-based systems at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference next month. Quantum’s Lattus M disk archive incorporates object storage technology to serve as an active near line archive and enable rapid retrieval of content and assets for repurposing in a StorNext-managed environment. With Lattus-M as a new archive tier, content can automatically move between online primary disk, object storage and tape, including the StorNext AEL Archive. Additionally, Quantum is introducing a new High Density (HD) module which will enable the StorNext AEL6000 Archive to provide policy-based tiering to an LTO archive with slot densities that are twice those offered by competitors. Quantum’s new Lattus-M and StorNext AEL6000 HD are built to provide scalable onsite and globally distributed content preservation choices for managing petabytes of video assets created and maintained by post production facilities, broadcasters, and other organizations where video plays a central role.
At NAB booth #SL9016, Quantum will demonstrate how StorNext leverages object storage technology in Lattus-M to enable a policy-based near line archive. By seamlessly moving assets from archive to work-in-process at nearly primary online disk speeds, Lattus-M provides tremendous value for content preservation. Quantum will also highlight several customer use cases, including one from Ultimate Fighting Championship, where StorNext is the underlying technology that serves as the platform for a complete end-to-end content workflow. NAB will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 8-11.
