Quantum (News - Alert) Corp, a provider of data management and protection solutions, recently released version 5 of its StorNext metadata appliances, which are designed for efficiency management of big data.
In the age of big data, corporate information gathered from various channels is a critical asset. Employee-generated institutional knowledge, patents, customer opinions posted on social media sites and consumer insights garnered from business analytics are some of the forms of data assets companies are leveraging today. Making sense of this huge amount of unstructured digital data is a mammoth task and companies need to invest in an effective data management system to accomplish this task.
The recently released StorNext 5 appliances are based on a re-architected, high-performance engine. Stornext 5 appliances are capable of providing greater flexibility and usability to the users. In the new version, StorNext provides support for IP, NAS, SAN, and cloud-based networks. In fact, the new StorNext 5 appliances deliver up to 10 times greater performance and five times the scalability of previous StorNext versions, Quantum officials said in a news statement.
The new version of StorNext allows geographically dispersed teams to simultaneously access and handle large and small data files through a single interface for a better workflow.
The StorNext5 comes complete with expanded storage architectures, including SSD optimization and native InfiniBand support, to enable the use of low latency applications such as HPC and analytics.
The automatic tuning of the application ensures that it scales to petabytes with no slowdown as data grows and ages.Quantum’s technologies have been used to manage data assets in some of the world's most demanding content management environments. It seems that the latest version of StornNext with all its enhancements will live up to these expectations.
