Posted by | January 27, 2016 | | No Comments

A: Quantum StorNext Storage Manager is a storage tiering and management solution that can automatically move files in your StorNext environment based on your workflow or business rules. For example, you could write a rule that will automatically move assets to lower cost nearline storage or tape based on how frequently a file is accessed or its creation date. These files will still be recallable and accessible to StorNext at any time, yet help optimize your organizations storage strategy. Many Media and Entertainment environments that in the past simply added more ‘ad hoc’ storage to grow their primary SANs have found that implementing StorNext Storage Manager in combination with their asset management and production automation software yield enormous savings by leveraging different tiers of storage, and greater control and manageability of their production environment.
