NASA Selects Quantum’s StorNext Platform as Foundation for New Content Management & Storage System

Integrated Solutions From Quantum, IPV and Telestream to Provide End-to-End Management of All Digital Assets at Kennedy Space Center

SAN JOSE, Calif.Nov. 11, 2015 — Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that its StorNext® scale-out storage platform will serve as the foundation for NASA’s new Content Management & Storage System (CM&S) at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Vencore Inc., the prime contractor on the KSC Engineering Services Contract, has awarded a contract to systems integrator StorExcel to deploy a solution combining StorNext, IPV’s Curator digital asset management system and Telestream’s Vantage transcode system. The integrated solution will enable the Kennedy Space Center to centralize, manage and preserve all its digital content, including footage from high-speed cameras used during launches, video from surveillance cameras, production video, digital prints and still imagery. The StorNext-based CM&S has passed factory acceptance testing and is ready for deployment within a new data center being constructed at the Kennedy Space Center.

StorNext is optimized for the most demanding workflows, providing a unique combination of the industry’s fastest streaming file system performance and long-term data management for the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO). This low TCO is achieved through automated movement of content to the most cost-effective storage tier based on access requirements, all managed within a single solution.

The StorNext system to be deployed by NASA provides multitier storage, including a metadata appliance, primary disk storage and an archive-enabled tape library. In combination with IPV Curator and Telestream’s Vantage system, StorNext will enable the agency to:

  • Manage more than 15 different digital formats across the entire content lifecycle — import, transcode, process, distribute, export and retention/preservation;
  • Search, preview and access any of the content through a secure web-based interface; and
  • Scale to more than 10PB of storage capacity.
