Quantum 4K Video Reference Architectures

Quantum’s purpose-built 4K video reference architectures leverages the company’s StorNext-powered, disk- and flash-based workflow storage systems to maximize 4K stream counts and optimize performance levels in accordance with users’ specific needs. 4K has become the primary driver of storage-purchasing decisions for many media companies, but identifying the best storage medium and system configuration is challenging. Given the wide variety of stream counts and media formats used across different facilities, it’s not necessarily obvious or intuitive what type of storage will deliver the best mix of performance, capacity and cost for a specific workflow or use case. To answer this question, Quantum conducted testing that not only provided a thorough performance. From this testing, Quantum determined stream counts and performance levels for its StorNext-powered disk drives and arrays, when and where flash is the most cost-effective solution for high performance, higherresolution workflows, and when a spinning disk configuration can provide better performance for less money -- ultimately resulting in the creation of four 4K reference architectures. Based on StorNext-powered Xcellis storage systems, these reference architectures are sized for specific stream counts and can scale up as needed to provide additional capacity and performance.
