"On a Pound-per-TB basis, the QXS-5600 is Quantum’s lowest-priced disk storage product"

Quantum Corp. has introduced the StorNext QXS-5600, a high-capacity, high-density disk array. Part of Quantum’s StorNext portfolio, the StorNext QXS-5600 is intended as work-in-process storage for a variety of applications, including 4K and 8K video production and postproduction, geospatial imaging, video surveillance, and seismic research and analysis.

The QXS-5600 provides up to 336 TB of raw capacity in 4 RU rack (other configuration options are 168 and 224 TB).

The QXS-5600 can be used for nearline storage, where having content close by and quickly accessible is essential, or for non-real-time workflow operations where high-density storage provides productivity benefits.

Dave Frederick, senior director, of product marketing, at Quantum, said: "The QXS-5600 storage array fills out the Quantum Q-Series disk portfolio perfectly, offering the market high storage capacity in the smallest possible space, as well as significant cost savings and powerful performance. As organizations continue to struggle with changing workflows and new demands for leveraging their digital content, they will find that this storage solution provides the right balance of capacity and availability at a very attractive price point - all backed by Quantum."
