​Quantum Debuts Xcellis Shared Storage at CCW

The new Xcellis next-generation shared workflow storage system from Quantum made its debut at CCW 2015. This system integrates the components of workflow storage into a single, compact hardware solution that runs on the Quantum StorNext 5 media workflow platform.

Xcellis supports online work in process, ingest and delivery, and archive through Quantum's portfolio of Lattus object storage, LTO tape and Q-Cloud services, all running on StorNext 5.

“The new system delivers the exceptional performance and reliability critical to meeting extreme production and delivery deadlines,” says Quantum. “In addition, because Xcellis provides continuous scalability, it reduces the cost and complexity of storage deployment and maintenance while enabling future expansion in an intelligent, sophisticated manner.”
