Quantum Pro Solutions

Complete Storage Solution for Media Workflows

StorNext® Pro Solutions offer post-production and broadcast professionals the fastest, easiest, and most complete shared highperformance storage for today’s complex collaborative workgroups. Whether you are building a 4K post-production studio, refreshing an existing Xsan deployment, or standing up a new broadcast facility, StorNext Pro Solutions provide the perfect storage to support high-volume workflows.

StorNext Pro Solutions take the proven performance and reliability of StorNext appliances a step further. StorNext 5 empowers you to rethink your workflow for higher performance and cost-effective efficiency, so you can ingest more content from multiple camera sources, create more content, and deliver it on time, while preserving owned content for future monetization.

Built on the power of the StorNext 5, StorNext Pro Solutions are complete, integrated workflow storage solutions ready to deploy in your new or existing Fibre Channel and IP network. Each StorNext Pro Solution is designed for the specific needs of broadcast and post-production workflows, and enables content creators and owners to manage assets from ingest to delivery to archive at any scale, and adapt as their workflows evolve.

All StorNext Pro solutions include StorNext Connect, making it easier for you to discover, manage, and monitor your StorNext environment. StorNext Connect allows you to connect all your StorNext resources—storage, CPU, memory, network interconnect—in a single graphical view. With StorNext Connect, you can shorten the time it takes to deploy or upgrade a StorNext environment, identify problems before they affect users, and reduce the risk of downtime or degraded performance by eliminating error-prone manual tasks.

StorNext Pro Solutions are available with configuration enhancements to provide additional storage capacity, features, and professional services. StorNext Pro Solutions also offer a 3-year warranty, on-site service spares, 30-minute phone response (excluding general inquiries), and next-day parts replacement for total assurance. And, of course, StorNext Pro Solutions are completely interoperable with the extensive StorNext ecosystem.
