Technology company Quantum has announced a new release of its workflow storage platform designed to bring new levels of efficiency and flexibility to media content.
The new enhancements offered by StorNext 5.4 include the ability to integrate existing public cloud storage accounts and third-party object storage (private cloud), starting with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, NetApp StorageGRID, IBM Cleversafe, and Scality RING as archive tiers in a StorNext-managed media environment.
Another new feature of StorNext 5.4 enables users to deploy applications embedded within StorNext-powered Xcellis workflow storage appliances.
In conjunction with the release of StorNext 5.4, Quantum has also refined its StorNext Connect management tools with an app-based framework that facilitates the independent installation, operation and updating of individual components while they are online.
Quantum’s senior director of media and entertainment, Dave Frederick, said one of the key challenges in today’s media workflows is managing the ever-growing volume of higher-resolution video content.
“Quantum has been at the forefront in helping users address this challenge and capitalise on the opportunities to leverage this content for greater business and organisational success,” he said.
“StorNext 5.4 builds on the company’s leadership, enabling users to extend their StorNext multi-tier storage environments and achieve even greater workflow efficiency, flexibility and cost savings.”
