Quantum will be at NAB demonstrating its new Artico intelligent NAS archive appliance. Artico offers broadcast and post facilities using scale-out NAS systems an entry point for establishing media archives — outside of StorNext environments — that can scale to hold petabytes of content across Quantum’s Lattus extended online, Scalar tape and Q-Cloud Archive storage.
Powered by Quantum‘s StorNext 5 software and providing a simple NAS presentation, Artico incorporates StorNext Storage Manager policies to maximize storage efficiency. When used in combination with any StorNext-qualified media asset management (MAM) system, Artico can move files from online storage to longer-term archive with no user intervention, while maintaining full access to the files.
The system offers NAS connectivity and intelligent, policy-driven file movement across LTO tape, LTFS, object storage and cloud archive systems. Artico was designed to enable long-term protection of content through the ability to create multiple archive copies and with support for multiple archive systems.
