StorNext enables systems to share a high speed pool of images, media, content, analytical data, and other key digital assets so files can be processed and distributed quicker. Even in heterogeneous environments, all files are easily accessible to all hosts - SAN or LAN. When performance is key, StorNext recommends SAN connectivity to achieve throughput that extends over 10 Gbps. For cost efficiency and fan-out, StorNext offers LAN-based access using clustered gateway systems with resiliency and throughput that outperforms traditional network sharing methods.
For long term data storage, StorNext expands pools into multi-tier archives, automatically moving data between different disk and tape resources to reduce costs and protect content. Data location is virtualized so that any file can easily be accessed for re-use, even if it resides on tape. Additional cost savings can be achieved using DRS, data reduction storage, which provides content-specific data reduction using Quantum's patented de-duplication technology.
StorNext File System
StorNext File System is a heterogeneous shared file system that allows multiple servers access to a common disk repository regardless of OS type. Nearly all servers can run a StorNext client and obtain access to the shared file system.
StorNext Storage Manager
StorNext Storage Manager enables scalable online archiving to address the most aggressive data growth environments and demanding SLAs. Storage Manager is a flexible policy-based data migration engine for storage tiring, and data preservation services. Transparently migrating data to lower cost storage tiers as data ages or is less frequently accessed enables you to align the cost and performance characteristics of your data with that of your storage environment.
StorNext Time Code-Based Partial File Retrieval
StorNext Time Code-Based Partial File Retrieval is designed for StorNext Storage Manager Environments specifically in the media and entertainment vertical. PFR indexes video content and works with StorNext to optimize retrieval of smaller clips of content from much larger video files, saving staff time and reducing hardware costs.
Gateway LAN Clients
The Gateway LAN Clients enable high-speed access to StorNext data volumes over an IP network through StorNext SAN gateway servers. The Gateway's IP protocol is designed for higher per-stream performance and resilient communication. This optimized protocol can achieve near-line rate throughputs over standard IP network connections.
Management and reporting
StorNext provides a robust management console and enhanced reporting capabilities. Built on web service architecture, StorNext Graphical User Interface (GUI) enables improved usability and monitoring.
Deduplication and replicationProduct Highlights
StorNext Deduplication reduces storage requirements of the file system. Unlike compression, StorNext Deduplication builds its redundancy index based on all the data being Deduplicated, not just the file being processed at that moment. It finds redundancies within a file making it extremely efficient at saving storage space. StorNext Replication is an asynchronous, host-based replication feature that is highly flexible and configurable.
