Showcasing Hybrid Flash Storage Solutions for Virtual Environments
QXS hybrid flash storage is a family of primary storage systems designed to be highly customizable and scalable. Since introducing QXS last fall, Quantum has seen enthusiastic adoption by customers. Unique to QXS is Q-Tier software — intelligent, automated, real-time storage tiering which moves data between the highest performing flash storage or disk tiers to optimize performance as needed. The addition of QXS storage arrays to Quantum's scale-out storage and data protection portfolio has further expanded the company's range of solutions designed for managing data across the entire lifecycle in demanding environments. Recent customers to implement QXS hybrid storage include:

  • HEXPOL, a leading polymer group
  • The Moret Group lifestyle brands
  • New-York Historical Society, one of America's preeminent cultural institutions
  • Sage Hospitality, a national hotel developer and operator
  • University of Pittsburgh, a leading state research and education institution

"We built our DRaaS Cloud solution on a QXS hybrid storage foundation so that our customers can enjoy real-time intelligent tiering to address unpredictable data access patterns," said

John Borhek, chief solutions architect, VMsources, a consulting firm focused on optimizing virtualized environments. "Quantum QXS delivers the benefits of flash performance without the cost of an all-flash array."

"In the aerospace industry, computing power and speed are essential for meeting aggressive product launch schedules," noted Djassem Hamrat, director, technology and engineering division, CIARA Technologies, a provider of high-performance and cost-effective solutions designed for aerospace. "Quantum's QXS hybrid storage offers a tiered solution which optimizes both capacity and performance, enabling us to meet the dynamic needs of our customers."

Managing Unstructured Data Growth and Maximizing Production System Availability
In addition to showcasing how QXS hybrid storage powers demanding virtualization environments, Quantum will also be highlighting its Xcellis storage platform, which enables IT organizations to address the unprecedented growth of unstructured data. The company will also show the new DXi6900-S deduplication appliance, which provides the highest density backup available today and delivers a 400 percent increase in performance to minimize the impact of backup and maximize availability of production systems to power the enterprise of tomorrow.
