Quantum StorNext FX2 client software enables Apple Xsan 2 customers to increase productivity and consolidate storage throughout their entire organization. StorNext FX2 acts as a gateway for high speed data sharing, linking servers with different operating systems to Xsan 2 storage environments. With StorNext FX2, applications running on almost any platform can share data with Apple Xsan 2 environments without having to pass files over slow network connections.
High performance workflow
StorNext FX2 provides enterprise collaboration and data between Xsan 2 applications and workflow processes running on other platforms. StorNext FX2 runs on Windows, Linux, and UNIX servers and uses file system technology with Xsan 2. This allows StorNext FX2 servers to receive Xsan 2 communications and directly access Xsan 2 storage, eliminating the need to duplicate files or move them between hosts over the network. The result is high speed content ingest, fast parallel processing, and transparent, heterogeneous shared access to images, rich media files, broadcast content, satellite downloads, seismic data, analytic data sets, and other critical digital assets.
