Quantum StorNext® Scale Out Storage developed by Quantum Corporation solves the storage challenge by taking a different approach, which enables a better workflow with intelligent data management. As video surveillance data is ingested, XProtect® writes the data to Quantum’s StorNext® converged storage platform. Data that is written to primary storage is also copied to a secondary tier of storage to ensure that data is protected—this minimizes the need to move files across the network when retention times expire.  As the data ages, its location in the primary tier of storage expires based on the policy set by the customer, keeping the copy retained in the secondary tier to be accessed as needed.

Our joint solution allows XProtect® to efficiently access data that has aged beyond the primary storage capacity and is now only retained in the secondary storage platform. By integrating XProtect® software, users can take advantage of longer-retained data, providing a seamless interface to the operator. XProtect® uses Quantum’s extensive StorNext APIs to efficiently locate and retrieve desired files. Even when a file has been tiered to a different type of storage, the file looks like it’s right where the user left it—it’s as easy as looking for a document on a C: drive.


Key Features

  • High-Performance Primary Storage for up to thousands of cameras

  • Direct access to files from XProtect VMS via SAN and NAS clients

  • Massive scalability to handle large files and long retention

  • Automatic tiering to move files to lower-cost long-term storage devices
