StorNext 6 Scale-out Storage

Delivering an unparalleled combination of high performance and advanced data management.


Scale-out Parallel File System

  • Shared, high-performance, highly scalable file system shared storage
  • Built-in data management to optimize client performance and auditing ease of access
  • The best combination of connectivity from SAN (FC and IB) and NAS (IP, CIFS, and NFS) to deliver optimized performance and ease of access

Advanced Data Management

  • Extensive policy-driven management capabilities for multi-tier storage including flash, tape, object storage, low-cost disk, and cloud intelligent tiering
  • Intelligent and efficient tiering for optimizing performance and maximizing capacity policies
  • Business- and workflow-driven data management policies for enhanced data protection and collaboration, enabling maximum control of global access and data movement from an entire facility down to a single subdirectory

Fast, Automated File Replication with FlexSync™

With FlexSync, users have a fast, flexible and simple way to automate the synchronization of data between multiple StorNext systems for greater data protection and collaboration.

Comprehensive Solution

StorNext was created to solve the daunting problem of sharing access to massive data sets for strategic analysis. Now recognized as a leader in scale-out storage for large, data-intensive workloads, we have built on that pedigree through continuous development. StorNext 6 delivers the unique combination of high performance and advanced data management, providing cost-effective scalability and access for a wide variety of workloads and use cases, including media production, genomics research, video surveillance, geospatial imaging, VR content, and more.


StorNext 6 empowers companies to architect their storage environment based on the needs of their business—all-flash, tape, cloud, and other storage tiers. The StorNext platform eliminates the need to recreate the data management infrastructure to take advantage of an ever-changing landscape of storage offerings, allowing companies to maximize their storage investments. This flexibility means that data is always available in the right place at the right time and at the right cost.


StorNext 6 enhances efficiency and lowers the costs associated with complex data management by simplifying the movement, access, sharing, and protection of data— regardless of location. StorNext 6 delivers these capabilities while optimizing performance at scale, so every user benefits from a seamless, global, multi-tier storage environment without changing the way they work.


StorNext provides companies with cost-effective storage that supports flexible and efficient user access to data directly with their chosen applications.

StorNext creates a storage environment that achieves the unattainable goal of every other storage system—simultaneously providing high performance and advanced data management for large, data-driven workloads.

Shared Archive Management with FlexSpace™

FlexSpace allows multiple instances of StorNext—located anywhere in the world—to share a single archive target. Users working at geographically distributed sites can create and automatically store content to the archive as well as browse and pull content from it. FlexSpace provides fully automated movement of files according to policies, thereby increasing efficiency and enhancing data protection through off-site storage. This capability supports both public cloud (via S3 protocol with StorNext FlexTier™) and private cloud storage based on Lattus™ object storage or a FlexTier target, such as Webscale, Scality, or Cleversafe.

Genomics Research

Life sciences workflows put a lot of strain on storage infrastructure. Distributed bioinformatics teams need high-speed access to NGS data while imaging scientists are doing complex analysis on PACS DICOM data. And all of it needs to be kept available for long-term study—often for decades. Fortunately, there is a different approach to storage that can accelerate discovery. Learn how tiered storage and object storage from Quantum can help scientists turn genomics, bioinformatics, and medical imaging data into knowledge

4K Video Post-Production

Whether you’re creating content for feature films, television advertising, corporate communications, or immersive VR experiences, 4K is fast becoming the dominant acquisition format. StorNext is uniquely designed to scale smoothly from HD-level systems to 4K and beyond. StorNext users enjoy cost-effective scalability, optimized performance, and shared access through an efficient storage-only, scale-out model. High-resolution video also puts added pressure on content archives. StorNext end-to-end tiered storage is an ideal way to save money on larger files. StorNext automatically moves them to lower cost storage systems with full access and visibility.

Video Surveillance

The combination of camera counts, retention requirements, and an increase in analytic tools results in more and more data being stored. In order to contain costs, the storage infrastructure must take advantage of multiple technologies like disk, tape, and the cloud. Quantum video surveillance storage includes intelligent software that automatically and transparently moves data to the most appropriate tier of storage at the right time, providing a powerful combination of high performance and lowest total cost of ownership.
