Avid MAM Supports Quantum Archive

Avid MediaCentral customers can now deploy Quantum StorNext archive appliances and Quantum’s Scalar tape libraries as targets for MediaCentral archives.

“MediaCentral offers a unified view of all archive content,” explains Ed Caracappa, Sr. Director Global Alliances, Avid. “With the integration of Quantum’s StorNext archive, MediaCentral can take full advantage of Quantum’s connectivity to tape, and Avid users can now utilize StorNext media support and connectivity options via MediaCentral, through the “StorNext Connector” plugin, available for purchase through Avid or Avid resellers.”

According to Anniek Snauwaert, Director, Technology Alliances, Quantum, the StorNext technology offers powerful policy-based data movement from active disk to a comprehensive range of archive storage technologies including Scalar tape libraries, object storage and cloud. MediaCentral accesses this integrated intelligence via the StorNext Webservices API to optimize data movement efficiency, capitalize on integrated versioning and enable open standard exports such as LTFS.
