Growth in Data-Rich Workflows

For customers in highly data-intensive fields, meeting business objectives depends on the ability to derive value from their digital assets. This includes those working in video production, intelligence, surveillance and technical applications such as genomics, medical imaging or oil and gas exploration. However, a key challenge has been storing and managing this data in a way that cost-effectively meets performance and access needs in an end-to-end workflow. While scale-out NAS products have enabled organizations to leverage their IP infrastructure, these offerings have been unable to keep up with the greater performance and scalability demands generated by increasingly larger data files and higher content resolutions.

Xcellis: Designed for Demanding Workflows

Optimized for end-to-end workflows, Xcellis overcomes these limitations and delivers a comprehensive solution that automates and simplifies data management. It provides a unique combination of converged architecture, continuous scalability and unified access in a single system. Xcellis lets users boost their efficiency, productivity and creativity to deliver the products and services that drive their business. It consolidates the management of data and metadata, extends connectivity options and supports 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 platform. The solution also facilitates flexible configuration and smooth growth, allowing users to start with the smallest system possible and economically scale up performance and capacity when needed. Xcellis provides this flexibility without requiring replacement of original hardware or interrupting ongoing operations.

The Network Computing Awards are run by industry publication Network Computing and will be presented on Thursday, March 17, in London.
