Quantum QXS Hybrid Storage

Intelligent. Automated. Optimized. Designed for high performance, efficiency, reliability, and scalability Quantum QXS hybrid storage portfolio optimizes flash and disk to significantly lower operating and capital costs. Powerful features include real-time, automated and intelligent tiering, plus 1-buttonconfiguration to meet the demands of specific applications and workflows.

What is QXS Hybrid Storage?

  •  QXS hybrid storage is a family of primary storage systems that make it easy to select the perfect system for your environment and budget. QXS hybrid systems are customizable and scalable by alternating key elements. While all QXS hybrid systems are available with intelligent tiering, the QXS-3 Series features a balanced mix of reliability and availability; the QXS-4 Series delivers the optimal mix of performance, cost and storage density while the QXS-6 meets the IOPS requirements of the most demanding workflows.

Why QXS is the Best Solution? Benefits:

  1. Intelligent Data Tiering : Tiering data based on usage is a necessity. Keeping in-demand data in the highest-performing storage is the smart thing to do. QXS hybrid storage incorporates intelligent data access algorithms to ensure the most requested data is in the highest-performing tier seamlessly and automatically. This enables the optimal use of higher-cost, high-performance storage
  2. Designed for Speed: All-flash performance for a fraction of the cost. We built QXS hybrid storage to be fast—really fast. QXS hybrid systems maximize performance regardless of disk type or configuration—all disk, all flash or flash and disk. With as little as 10% capacity dedicated to flash, QXS hybrid performance is up to 200,000 IOPS and is on par with all-flash arrays at a fraction of the cost. Designed for demanding sequential I/O performance, we use multi-core processing, active-active controllers, and separate paths for internal management and external data access.
  3. Systems Pre-configured for Optimization: Confidence when installing new storage systems.QXS hybrid storage is offered with 1-button configurations. These 1-button configurations are optimized for specific workflows and applications that have been extensively tested by Quantum. There is no risk or uncertainty when you install pre-defined, thoroughly tested QXS hybrid storage systems.
  4. Built for Reliability: Achieve 99.999% availability. By design.With QXS industry-leading reliability, you can be assured that your mission-critical applications will always be available. With the dual, redundant design, QXS systems eliminate single points of failure. Designed to meet military and telecommunications specifications, the systems will perform, without failure, in extreme conditions.
  5. Exceed Requirements; Stay Within Budget: Managing unrelenting storage growth requires a strong partner.QXS true hybrid storage systems’ automatic, intelligent tiering optimizes flash and disk to keep performance up and costs down. For most applications, up to 95% of IOPS can come from as little as 10% flash. Flexibility and scalability are required to manage an efficient storage environment. QXS systems are available in a variety of configurations, including up to 3 tiers of storage within an array, and seamlessly support additional SSDs, HDDs, and expansion chassis when needed.

Quantum Artico NAS Storage Appliance

Smart & Simple Archive. Artico™ intelligent NAS appliance balances storage use between performance disk and more cost-effective mass storage while keeping files accessible, dramatically reducing overall storage costs and increasing productivity by keeping more content accessible.

What is Artico?

  • Artico intelligent NAS appliance provides a flexible, low-cost entry point for archive, with the ability to scale to store petabytes of data as demand grows. Powered by StorNext® 5 data management policies, Artico stores and retains data in a tiered storage system that intelligently places the data on the right technology at the right time, both on-premise or in the cloud. Combined with StorNext-enabled policies and the data migration tools of Rocket Arkivio Autostor software, Quantum enables users to move files seamlessly from primary storage to less expensive storage while maintaining full access to all files, providing the lowest TCO model for storing, accessing and protecting data.

Benefits of Artico:

  1. Store and Access More Data Archiving data reduces pain and cost associated with data growth. Rather than spending more on expensive primary and backup storage to accommodate data growth, move data to protected archive or extended online storage. Your data can then be accessed and protected on less expensive storage without disrupting your day to day workflow. As data is moved to archive storage it is no longer part of the regular backup process, so there is much less data to back up and backups take much less time. The backup window that was out of control is once again manageable. Along with smaller backups comes lower investment.
  2. Performance and Protection : Combine disk cache with cost effective archive storage. You can adjust how long data remains on Artico’s internal disk, giving you even more control over tuning your environment to meet your needs. Data that is archived is extremely well-protected. Artico’s intelligent policies can create multiple copies of files and can support cloud, object storage or cloud technology as a cost effective long term storage tier. These capabilities combine to deliver a comprehensive archive strategy that cost effectively stores, shares and protects data.
  3. Easy Entry, Tremendous Scale : Configuration and technology choices deliver incredible flexibility. Artico is designed for managing archive data across all forms of archive storage platforms. From a small tape library to cloud or to petabyte-scale object storage or tape. Quantum’s Artico solution can accommodate environments that are just getting started in implementing their archive architecture, and it can scale up as data storage needs evolve.
  4. A complete Archive Solution Data movement. NAS connect. Cloud, Object Storage or Tape. Quantum’s archive portfolio includes intelligent data movement options like Arkivio that can assess your data, and from that incorporate intelligent policies to move data from existing primary storage to Artico. Artico allows you to set policies that control data movement from internal disk to Q-Cloud™ Archive, Lattus™ Object Storage or Scalar® Tape Libraries—the choice is yours. The entire solutions are designed, tested and qualified by Quantum and are installed and supported by Quantum or Quantum authorized service providers.
