Quantum Pro Foundation

Complete Storage Solution for Media Workflows

STORNEXT PRO SOLUTIONS ARE BUILT FOR COLLABORATION

StorNext® Pro Solutions offer post-production and broadcast professionals the fastest, easiest, and most complete shared highperformance storage for today’s complex collaborative workgroups. Time and time again, StorNext is at the core of the most demanding media workflows because it delivers the performance, collaboration, and reliability needed. StorNext Pro Solutions are tailored to match the requirements of professional media facilities, regardless of scope or scale.

THE PERFECT FIT FOR SMALL WORKGROUPS

Just because you have a limited number of collaborators on your project doesn’t mean you have to settle for limited performance. Built for simultaneous access for up to seven users, StorNext Pro Foundation combines proven StorNext collaboration and workflow support with a new price point that makes it more accessible than ever. StorNext Pro Foundation is designed to provide all the performance you expect from a StorNext Pro Solution, ideally sized for organizations like yours.

THE POWER OF STORNEXT 5 IS BUILT IN

StorNext Pro Foundation is fully integrated around StorNext 5 file system software and comes in either 48TB or 96TB configurations. Deadlines are not flexible and you can’t afford to miss one. That’s why StorNext Pro Foundation includes redundant components for continuous operation. But StorNext Pro Foundation is not just about performance and reliability; with StorNext Storage Manager, files can move automatically based on policies you set to an optional tape-based StorNext AEL Archives to extend capacity.

MAKING ALL THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS

Like all StorNext Pro Solutions, StorNext Pro Foundation can support Mac OS X, Windows and Linux clients. Xsan clients can connect directly and two Windows or Linux client licenses are included. Depending on workflow, StorNext Pro Foundation can support five (48TB systems) or seven (96TB systems) concurrent users*. Also, StorNext Pro Foundation includes StorNext Connect, a single console for storage environment monitoring and management. StorNext Connect allows you to deploy and update clients, and monitor capacity and bandwidth usage system wide.

MEDIA IS IN OUR DNA

StorNext is the trusted choice of media professionals. We understand your applications: from non-linear editors including Apple Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro; to asset management solutions like Axle, CatDV, and Cantemo. We understand your demand for smooth playback—any glitch or dropped frame while editing costs you time and money. Ultimately, it’s all about your applications—your workflow—your results.

* Connection counts based on 4 simultaneous streams of ProRes 422 content. Ingest, transcode, and other processing functions may affect stream count.
