Infinite. Online. Durable. Cost Effective.
Whether the data is satellite images, CAD drawings, film industry dailies, office documents, DNA sequence data, or corporate reports, its long-term value lies in persistent availability to be analyzed, monetized, or otherwise reused in the future—not just when it’s collected. With advances in technology and analysis tools, the sheer volume of data can be overwhelming. Existing storage technologies are being stressed beyond their current capabilities to maintain this data long-term while enabling the efficient and immediate access required to extract its maximum value. Lattus™ meets these challenges by leveraging Object Storage technology to extend online storage and provide immediate data access with unmatched levels of scalability, durability, and cost effectiveness.
SCALES TO HUNDREDS OF PETABYTES WITHOUT DISRUPTION OR DATA MIGRATION
Quantum’s flexible durability policies enable configuration changes to add more storage or even to expand from single-site to multi-site configurations without disruptive data migration. Data will automatically be re-spread, as a background process, to accommodate the new configuration. Upgrading to new storage technologies is as simple as adding new storage nodes—Lattus redistributes the data seamlessly with no user impact. Disruptive technology refresh and data migration cycles are now a thing of the past.
DURABLE, SELF-HEALING PROTECTION
Lattus error correction algorithms provide extreme durability to ensure data is protected in the event of device failure and even site disaster. Lattus is self-healing: it continuously checks stored data for bit errors and corrects them on the fly. When failed drives are replaced or additional capacity is added, these algorithms redistribute data objects to make full use of the new storage capacity without disrupting access to data.
REDUCES CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS
The extreme durability of its algorithms protect every instance of data against component failure, and when Lattus is spread across multiple sites it also protects against site disaster. Therefore, replication is no longer needed, and demand for backupand DR storage is substantially reduced along with capital and operating expenses. Lattus’ high level of redundancy eliminates the need for most unscheduled maintenance, so unlike RAID-based storage, drive failures do not require immediate operator attention for replacement.
HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW LATENCY ACCESS
Quantum’s appliance-based strategy enables Lattus to deliver predictable performance. High-speed access to data is available through Quantum file system technologies, including NAS access, StorNext® Storage Manager Integration, and native HTTP REST. Our 20-node base system can deliver 3GB per second throughput (subject to network bandwidth) and can scale up from there. This level of performance makes Lattus ideal for environments that need fast access to their content store.
FLEXIBLE AND EASY TO DEPLOY
Lattus has multiple base configurations to choose from—each with specific interfaces and capacity. From there, any interface option can be further added, and capacity and performance can be scaled independently. Dispersion algorithms can be tuned to spread the data across multiple sites to improve accessibility and availability.
Features + Benefits
Scales from a hundred terabytes to hundreds of petabytes.
Low latency of disk storage yields predictably fast retrieval times.
Durable with self-healing
Offers extreme durability to ensure data is protected and virtually eliminate unscheduled maintenance.
Data may be spread across multiple, geographically dispersed sites more efficiently than competing solutions.
Innovative algorithms simplify upgrades to new storage technologies. Disruptive technology refresh and data migration cycles are now a thing of the past.
Data can be flexibly archived into Lattus via CIFS, NFS, StorNext Storage Manager or HTTP REST, including with Amazon S3 support.
Lower operational resources
Schedule drive replacements periodically versus immediately when they fail. Lower-power drives require less power and cooling.
