Quantum Releases StorNext QXS-5600 for Users With Large Files

Quantum Corp. introduced the StorNext QXS-5600, a high-capacity, high-density disk array that provides storage for customers managing an increasing number of large files containing high-resolution video, images or other rich content.

Quantum_StorNext5_colorPart of Quantum’s award-winning StorNext solutions portfolio, the StorNext QXS-5600 is ideal work-in-process storage for a wide variety of applications, including 4K and 8K video production and postproduction, geospatial imaging, video surveillance, and seismic research and analysis.

“The QXS-5600 storage array fills out the Quantum Q-Series disk portfolio perfectly, offering the market high storage capacity in the smallest possible space, as well as significant cost savings and powerful performance,” says Dave Frederick, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Quantum. “As organizations continue to struggle with changing workflows and new demands for leveraging their digital content, they will find that this storage solution provides the right balance of capacity and availability at a very attractive price point — all backed by Quantum.”

Dense Disk Storage for Demanding Workloads and Environments
Like other StorNext Q-Series disk offerings, the QXS-5600 is purpose-built for highly data-intensive environments, delivering enterprise-class performance, redundancy, availability and manageability. In addition, this highly dense StorNext product provides up to 336TB of raw capacity in a 4U rack (other configuration options are 168TB and 224TB). With as much as twice the storage capacity per rack unit of smaller disk arrays, the QXS-5600 reduces the space, power and cooling required to support high-performance applications. On a dollar-per-TB basis, it is Quantum’s lowest-priced disk storage product, delivering a new level of value in the company’s disk offerings.

With its density and price-performance attributes, the QXS-5600 is particularly well-suited for nearline work-in-process storage, where having content close by and quickly accessible for re-monetization or other re-purposing is essential. It also is tailor-made for non-real-time workflow operations where high-density storage provides significant productivity benefits.
