Quantum’s Xcellis Shared-Workflow Storage Solution Receives 2016 Storage Visions Award
Earlier this month at the 2016 Storage Visions Conference, Quantum was presented the 2016 Storage Visions Award for Visionary Products, Professional-Class System, for the company’s new Xcellis high-performance shared workflow storage solution.
Optimized for end-to-end workflows, Xcellis empowers users to boost their efficiency, productivity and creativity in delivering the products and services that drive their business. Consolidating data and metadata management, extending connectivity options and supporting hosted applications, Xcellis integrates the most important components of workflow storage into a single compact hardware solution that runs on the powerful Quantum StorNext 5 media workflow platform. The Quantum solution facilitates flexible configuration and smooth growth, allowing users to start with the smallest-possible system and then independently and economically scale up performance and capacity with no replacement of original hardware investment and no interruption to ongoing operations.
“Each year the Storage Visions Conference brings the industry a unique opportunity to explore the future of digital storage and how new technologies are enabling more effective and efficient use of data across the enterprise,” says Geoff Stedman, SVP, StorNext Solutions, Quantum. “We built the Xcellis shared workflow storage solution to address the challenges presented by increasingly data-centric and data-rich operations, and we are honored that this work has been recognized with a 2016 Storage Visions Award.”
The annual Storage Visions Conference focuses on the latest digital storage technologies and their applications. Hosted by the Entertainment Storage Alliance and Coughlin Associates, this year’s event took place Jan. 4-5 at the Luxor Conference Center in Las Vegas.
“Storage infrastructure is a fundamental enabler of modern data-rich workflows, which demand the highest levels of performance, as well as exceptional flexibility, in archiving and accessing data,” says Tom Coughlin, Founder, Coughlin Associates. “Quantum’s Xcellis solution is an innovative answer to these demands, providing a combination of power, flexibility and functionality that enables users to simplify their storage architecture and streamline their operations.”
