Quantum has announced integration of DataFrameworks Clarity with its Xcellis scale-out storage and Artico archive appliances, providing increased visibility into usage and other intelligence regarding large unstructured data.


The integration will enable easy migration of files from any other NAS environment to take advantage of the better performance, access, sharing and cost management which Quantum’s StorNext-powered appliances provide. The combined solution provides business-relevant views across all file systems, allowing users to manage files by project, client, researcher, storage cost or other metrics. The combination of Quantum scale-out storage appliances and DataFrameworks ClarityNow enables data owners such as project managers, principal investigators, lead engineers and researchers to view and search the archive without an IT request. This combination thereby reduces the drain on limited IT resources and decreases both the operating costs and capital expenditures ― often by 10x or more ― associated with managing large amounts of file-based data across complex storage environments.


At the upcoming ISC High Performance 2017 conference in Frankfurt, Germany (June 18-22), Quantum will highlight the integrated ClarityNow solution along with other storage solutions for HPC environments. In addition, Quantum will present at two sessions during the show:


· Molly Presley, Vice-President of Global Marketing, will discuss the latest developments in multi-tier storage for HPC workflows at the Vendor Showdown


· Jason Coari, Sales Specialist, Scale-out Storage, will present “Scalable High Performance Storage for Technical Computing” on Wednesday, June 21, 4:00 p.m., Booth #M-210


Will Hall, Chief Executive Officer, DataFrameworks, said, “Disciplines such as life sciences, engineering design, energy, large government agencies and university research depend on workflows that involve storing, managing and moving large numbers of files. Files related to a single project can reside in multiple folders across multiple file systems, making it difficult to get a project-wide view of storage usage. For these complex environments, the combination of DataFrameworks ClarityNow and Quantum StorNext-based appliances for data management and archive offers an unmatched level of data visibility and access.”


Molly Presley, Vice-President, Global Marketing, Quantum, said, “Together, Quantum and DataFrameworks are providing the storage foundation that enables data-intensive HPC environments to extend the knowledge base for key data management decisions. Data owners, operations personnel or even scheduling systems can drive ‘what to archive and when to archive’ decisions, creating a more efficient environment for managing data associated with project-based workflows.”
