Quantum to Showcase StorNext Parallel File System and Cloud-Native Storage Innovation at SC17


StorNext Use in Autonomous Vehicle Research, Labs, Academia and Life Sciences Among Highlights


Quantum announced it will feature data storage and management solutions aimed at addressing the challenges of ingesting sensor and instrument data "” and rapidly aggregating it for analytics and HPC cluster work "” at the SC17 Conference and Exhibition, Nov. 12-17, in Denver. The company will highlight how scale-out storage solutions powered by its StorNext® parallel file system enable advances in research with a unique combination of high performance, low-cost capacity and ready access to integrated multitiered storage, including tape and object storage archives. Quantum will feature an autonomous research vehicle in its booth (#343) to underscore the role the company plays in capturing and managing such research data.

HPC Challenges and How to Address Them

HPC use cases are increasing in all types of data-driven organizations. This data is typically machine- or sensor-generated and is critical in many industries "• such as life sciences, higher education, research institutions, manufacturing and finance "• that are developing higher levels of automation and intelligence to improve business productivity or increase product value. Data growth is outpacing budget growth for many organizations, and existing storage budgets often can't keep up.

Powered by Quantum's StorNext file system software, the company's Xcellis® scale-out storage solutions integrate high-performance shared storage "” for active data "” with automated data management to preserve and protect archive data on tape or object storage, offering unique advantages for HPC research:

Reduced storage costs "” keep more data longer: Multitier storage provides hybrid disk storage for active content integrated with lower-cost storage tiers (tape, object storage and cloud) for less-active content, enabling researchers to store more data for longer periods at a lower cost than alternative solutions.

High performance: StorNext delivers the fastest streaming file system performance, and high-speed interfaces and networking protocols enable the most demanding workflows.

Automated data management and protection: Policy-based data tiering and data protection to tape, object storage and cloud ensures data is stored on the most appropriate storage technology and is immediately protected without the need for backup software.

Easy access: Content is transparently accessible in a single global namespace, regardless of its storage location "” ensuring easy, fast accessibility to all content.

Independent scaling of capacity and performance: Users can add low-cost capacity tape and object storage as data volumes grow and introduce performance SSD/disk storage as more resources come online, increasing the volume of active content available.

Cloud made easy: User-defined policies make it easy for researchers to leverage cloud service of choice (AWS, Azure, Google, C2S, GovCloud) in a single, unified namespace with on-premise data as part of their storage, protection and sharing strategies.

Storage at the Heart of Autonomous Vehicle Innovation

Underscoring the critical role storage plays in research environments, Quantum will feature an autonomous research development platform from AutonomouStuff "” a leading provider of autonomy-enabling technologies "” in its booth. Attendees will get an up close look at an actual vehicle used in this research and see how the data it generates is efficiently stored and managed.

"The HPC community has been grappling with data growth and budget pressures for a long time, but increasingly they also need to manage group data, with secure access for data that is shared across multiple campuses, all within a single namespace. As a result, the management of data movement, access, and security has become much more complex, and users are turning to Quantum to help address this problem and ensure they can continue to achieve their business or organizational objectives." Commented Molly Presley, vice president of global marketing, Quantum.
