Quantum has announced Xcellis Foundation, an entry-level workflow storage system designed for small- to medium-sized post houses and corporate video departments.

Based on Quantum's StorNext shared file system and data management platform, Quantum says the new system delivers “the benefits of enterprise-class Xcellis storage, including high performance and scalability, in a NAS appliance” for under $25k.

Keith Lissak, Senior Director, Media and Entertainment Solutions Marketing, Quantum, said “We're offering a great entry-level product without sacrificing our customers' ability to scale and grow their workflow storage systems. Every component of the system can be scaled or changed as their needs evolve. It's all the goodness of Xcellis, now available at a smaller starting point."

Xcellis Foundation comes standard with 48 TB of raw capacity, and users can upgrade to 72 TB or 96 TB. Adding performance and capacity can be done  by simply connecting more storage. Connectivity is via dual 10 GbE or optional 40 GbE, and NAS protocol support is included with no per-seat licensing.

Quantum is showcasing Xcellis Foundation at IBC and the new appliance will be generally available later this month.
