High-performance workflow storage for smaller workgroups

Quantum Corp's StorNext® Pro Foundation, its new low-cost, integrated shared storage system for smaller workgroups, is now available in Europe. Targeted at media professionals in post and broadcast as well as those managing corporate and government video, StorNext Pro Foundation is the latest addition to the award-winning, high-performance StorNext Pro™ Solutions line and is built on Quantum’s proven StorNext 5 collaboration and workflow software.

Ready to deploy within new or existing networks, StorNext Pro Foundation gives smaller production workgroups a high-performance, attractively priced solution for managing content from ingest to delivery to archive.


The underlying StorNext 5 platform enables extreme versatility to ensure that, as customers’ workflows evolve, the solution will provide the power to meet their needs for content ingest from multiple sources, collaborative content creation, on-time delivery in any format and content preservation for future monetisation.


Full Xsan compatibility
StorNext Pro Foundation provides full Xsan compatibility, enabling smaller workgroups — such as ad agencies, corporate video production departments and houses of worship that create significant amounts of video — to refresh or upgrade their Xsan storage environments.
Current StorNext users can also leverage StorNext Pro Foundation to add smaller workgroups for graphics, rendering and EFX.


Configurations and support
StorNext Pro Foundation comes in either 48TB or 96TB configurations, which respectively support five and seven simultaneous Xsan/Windows/Linux SAN clients, including two Windows/Linux SAN clients as core system components.
Either configuration can support up to four file systems (volumes) comprising100 million files.
The 48TB configuration is upgradable to 96TB.
Customers have the option of purchasing a StorNext AEL500 tape archive with either the 48TB or the 96TB configuration.
StorNext Pro Foundation includes one year of Quantum support with 30-minute phone response.
