StorNext Advanced Data Management


At the core of all Quantum scale-out storage is StorNext advanced data management―engineered to tackle the world’s most demanding data-intensive workloads, with the performance and efficiency needed to cost-effectively achieve desired business results.

What is StorNext Data Management?

StorNext advanced data management software efficiently manages complex workflows in StorNext scale-out storage environments, for data stored on primary disk, extended online storage, tape and cloud. StorNext meets demanding performance requirements, enables customers to scale to hundreds of petabytes, and integrates easily into collaborative environments. With its high-performance file system and policy-driven data management software, StorNext combines protection, flexibility and efficiency into an enterprise-grade system engineered for today and tomorrow.

High-performance access to data is no longer a "nice-to-have."

It’s a critical requirement in order to stay competitive and meet demanding schedules. Which is why Quantum’s scale-out storage, combined with StorNext data management software, delivers extreme performance and flexible shared access―making it the ideal choice for large, data-intensive workloads.

Data growth is a fact of life.

More files, bigger files, and complex workloads that can turn all this data into insight and action. Today, more than ever, scale matters. StorNext is designed to enable geographically dispersed teams to collaborate on large sets of large files, while optimizing performance at scale. And with its policy-based tiering, StorNext gives you cost-effective options to efficiently maximize your storage investments for today and tomorrow.

Many customers tell us the value of tiered storage is in the economics.

Use StorNext SAN clients over Fibre Channel for the most demanding high-performance workflows. Or enable users to share files over IP, with StorNext LAN clients at speeds up to 50% faster than NFS and CIFS. Deploy StorNext with clients that run Linux, Windows, UNIX, or Mac OS―they all work. And with StorNext’s policy-based tiering, you can integrate different types of storage into a single namespace that can include flash, spinning disk, object storage, LTO/LTFS tape and cloud. Now that’s flexible.

Enables file sharing across different technologies to fit your workflow.

StorNext has the ability to automatically move data from one type of storage to another, by policy, while maintaining shared global access. And tiering empowers you to efficiently move less-frequently used data to the most cost-effective, “green” storage with best-in-class data integrity and protection. But the real value in tiered storage comes from transparency. Even when a file has been tiered to a different type of storage, the file looks like it’s right where you left it. So your users can find what they need. No distractions, no compromise.

Powered by StorNext intelligent data management.

StorNext data management enables geographically dispersed teams of 15 or 1,500 to collaborate, with high-speed shared access to data. Regardless of operating system, regardless of network topology. And StorNext is designed for big scale and billions of files. With policy-driven tiering, you can transparently archive files to different types of storage, enabling you to affordably scale capacity―without impacting users and applications.

StorNext Connect - Insight and Control for StorNext Environments

StorNext environments are dynamic workspaces where multiple users interact with valuable data through a wide variety of applications. Optimizing performance and access to data is an ongoing Administrator task. While StorNext is one of the most hands-off data management platforms available, enhanced insight into system status and single-screen manageability can provide even greater control and visibility to their workspace.


Queries the StorNext environment to create an inventory of clients, file systems, gateways, metadata controllers, storage arrays, tape libraries and name servers.


Provides the current statistics in addition to historical and future trends for performance, throughput, and latency of all file systems at a high level with a drill down to individual components.


Makes it easier to set up and manage workflows by shortening the time it takes to deploy or upgrade a StorNext environment.
