Fujitsu America and Quantum Corp. Announces an Agreement to Offer North American Customers a Joint Solution
Mar 24 15
Fujitsu America and Quantum Corp. announced an agreement to offer North American customers a joint solution for large enterprise and mainframe backup and archive storage that encompasses best-in-class disk and tape technologies. Broadening the relationship between the two companies, the joint solution leverages the Fujitsu ETERNUS® CS8000 unified data protection appliance for deduplicated disk-based backup and Quantum Scalar® LTO intelligent tape libraries for low-cost, long-term data retention. The combination of Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 backup and Quantum Scalar LTO tape archive enables mainframe customers to address storage workflow challenges and better manage their data storage requirements and costs. Together, these technologies use a tiered approach that leverages primary disk, deduplicated disk backup and archive tape to balance access speed with capacity needs and cost requirements. This allows enterprises seeking to consolidate legacy mainframe VTLs to replace old, proprietary tape libraries with more economical deduplication and LTO tape. The Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 is a unified data protection appliance that incorporates Quantum's deduplication technology to consolidate backup and archiving infrastructures of open systems and mainframes. Quantum's Scalar tape libraries are the industry's most intelligent automated tape libraries, with built-in proactive diagnostics, intuitive management features to reduce operating expenses, and policy-based data integrity checking to ensure valuable data archived on tape can be recovered. The combined Fujitsu-Quantum solution for customers in North America is available on March 24.
Quantum Corporation StorNext Solution Provides 4K Workflow Platform for Chinese National Animation Industry Park
Mar 17 15
Quantum Corp. announced that China's National Animation Industry Park (NAIP) in Tianjin, is using Quantum StorNext shared storage as the foundation for its 4K postproduction workflows. The animation park turned to Quantum when its legacy system was unable to handle the performance and capacity requirements of its new 4K projects, and the StorNext solution has enabled NAIP to increase the efficiency of its workflows by 60% to 80%. NAIP's StorNext storage solution which encompasses a metadata appliance, a gateway appliance and disk storage allows all of the facility's creative professionals to work on content simultaneously in a high-performance, high-capacity environment. They can now handle 4K content with 48MB of data volume per frame and replay an entire film at a rate of 24 frames per second, native, when performing quality control.

Quantum's StorNext Cuts Complexity with Workload Storage for Milestone Video Surveillance Customers
Feb 18 15
Quantum Corp. announced a video surveillance solution certified with Milestone Systems. Quantum's StorNext scale-out storage is now certified for use with MilestoneXProtect VMS, delivering a combined solution that stores large amounts of video files while optimizing the performance of the system. It raises the bar for performance and scalability and provides standards-based, easy-to-use storage for video surveillance workloads. The combination enables Milestone users to capture higher quality video streams from more cameras simultaneously and have that data available for policy-driven analytics and retention. More organizations are deploying video surveillance systems for an expanding range of applications. The storage infrastructure for these systems is increasingly strained by multiple factors: An influx of surveillance footage from a growing number of cameras operating at higher resolutions; Increasing retention time for that footage; The need to capture and store more frames per second; and Greater demands to leverage surveillance data with new analysis tools. All of this requires increasingly scalable performance and capacity that legacy storage systems simply were not designed to provide, particularly in a cost-effective way. The combination of StorNext with Milestone VMS addresses video surveillance challenges with a solution validated through extensive testing and documentation. Among the product certification test findings: The combination of StorNext and XProtect exceeded the benchmark values by at least a factor of two. Extended testing demonstrated that StorNext storage enabled the Milestone VMS server to support a simultaneous ingest of up to 85 cameras per server four times more than expected based on competing solutions in the same configuration. The system performed at a very high level of data throughput, with near zero read/write latency. Tests included scenarios with five recording servers with 250 video cameras, and 11 recording servers with 935 video cameras. By supporting more than four times XProtect's minimum requirements, StorNext enables Milestone customers to create larger deployments with more easily managed shared storage solutions. This approach also enables system integrators, architects and customers to create larger systems with less complexity. StorNext 5 offers a new approach for managing the entire storage infrastructure, aligning storage tiers to the requirements of different stages in the lifecycle of captured video and making data directly available to users through their primary applications, regardless of where the content is stored. In an XProtect environment, StorNext delivers video surveillance storage implementations that are more cost-effective and offer higher levels of security and data protection. The combined StorNext and XProtect solution is available through Milestone and Quantum certified partners.
