Quantum has made its StorNext file system available as a subscription offering in AWS Marketplace.

StorNext lets users connect from any location to edit video in the cloud as a team. Users can speed up post-production workflows by accessing data and collaborating remotely, eliminating the need to copy or transfer files between users.

“Today’s announcement builds on the work Quantum and AWS have done to support customers in accelerating their journey to the cloud. This is the first time Quantum software is available for license and deployment on public cloud infrastructure, making it faster than ever to deploy and use StorNext,” says Nick Elvester, general manager Primary Storage, Quantum.

StorNext is offered in a subscription model through AWS Marketplace without the need for hardware infrastructure buildout, custom configuration, or client software installation.

This represents another step in Quantum’s cloud strategy to meet customers’ needs for agile production storage content operations which now includes StorNext, ActiveScale object storage systems supporting AWS Outposts, and providing cold storage infrastructure to some of the world’s largest hyperscalers.

Mona Chadha, director AWS Marketplace and ISV Alliances said: “Offering Quantum’s StorNext in AWS Marketplace will allow customers to build highly agile data and content workflows on AWS, enabling them to get to market quicker and address critical business needs.”

StorNext in AWS Marketplace is available in a choice of subscription periods in four configurations, starting at a complete StorNext environment of 12 terabytes of capacity. Each deployment can supplement existing StorNext installations in a hybrid model or as a fully cloud-based model to respond to emerging needs and requirements from customers and partners.

Each StorNext solution features a complete StorNext shared storage environment and includes:

StorNext file system deployments in configurations from 12TB to 62.5TB, with pre-configured,  StorNext services to manage and monitor clients, storage volumes, and data movement services such as Quantum FlexSync and FlexTier.

A range of subscription plans from monthly to multiple-year contracts to accommodate customer OPEX budgets. Usage-based consumption models count toward customer negotiated AWS Enterprise Discount Program (EDP) purchase commitments.

Availability as a private offer from authorized Quantum and AWS Consulting Partners like Integrated Media Technologies and ThunderCat for custom pricing and other services.

Efficient support of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for bulk data storage, along with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS).

Easy connection via SMB with no client software installation or configuration required.

Optional Quantum Distributed LAN Client (DLC) available at no additional cost to give a native platform file-system experience on macOS, Windows, and Linux clients.

Optional tiering of data and content from StorNext volumes to Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier, or other AWS storage services.

Quantum’s StorNext in AWS Marketplace is available immediately, and will be on display at IBC 2022 in Amsterdam in Stand 7.C39.
