New integrated solution provides more granular data visibility and access across scale-out storage environments
Quantum Corp. has recently announced the integration of Data Frameworks ClarityNow software with its Xcellis™ scale-out storage and Artico™ archive appliances, providing increased visibility into usage and other intelligence regarding large unstructured data. Through deeper insight into their data, users with highly demanding storage environments – which can include hundreds of storage nodes, dozens of file systems and multiple different vendors – will now be able to scan, organize, access and migrate their data much more easily and efficiently to meet their business or mission objectives.
Unmatched performance for complex file types; easy file and project migration
Quantum has integrated ClarityNow with its Xcellis workflow storage and Artico archive gateway appliances to enable easy migration of files from any other NAS environment to take advantage of the better performance, access, sharing and cost management which Quantum’s StorNext®-powered appliances provide. The combined solution provides business-relevant views across all file systems, allowing users to manage files by project, client, researcher, storage cost or other metrics.
The combination of Quantum scale-out storage appliances and DataFrameworks ClarityNow enables data owners such as project managers, principal investigators, lead engineers and researchers to view and search the archive without an IT request. This combination thereby reduces the drain on limited IT resources and decreases both the operating costs and capital expenditures – often by 10x or more – associated with managing large amounts of file-based data across complex storage environments.
