  • StorNext 5: StorNext 5 is a scale-out storage platform designed for today's modern workflow challenges of capturing, sharing and preserving the massive amounts of data associated with today's most demanding environments.

StorNext 5 includes policy-based tiering to automatically move data to the most cost-effective storage. It offers significant improvements in performance, scalability and manageability without the need for complex and disruptive hardware updates.
  • DXi6900: Powered by Quantum's DXi® software with StorNext 5 technology at its core, the DXi6900 accelerates storage workflows for data center, multi-site and cloud environments. Designed for midrange to enterprise customer needs, the DXi6900 utilizes capacity-on-demand licensing, enabling users to scale from 17TB to 510TB via a simple licensing key.

Self-encrypting drives with military-grade AES-256 bit encryption provide security at rest and across the wire, without degrading performance. The entire DXi-Series utilizes variable-length deduplication to increase the amount of information that can be stored on disk arrays, as well as the effective amount of data that can be transmitted over networks.

Product of the Year finalists are judged by a panel of users, analysts, consultants, and Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com editors.
