Studio FAMU Leverages Quantum Solution for Remote Access and Content Preservation
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NASDAQ: QMCO), a global leader in unstructured data and video solutions, today announced that Studio FAMU has deployed a Quantum storage solution consisting of Quantum StorNext® scale-out file storage, a Scalar® tape archive and integrated media library asset management. The platform delivers scalable, centralized storage with simple, remote access to files while providing long-term preservation of student work. The implementation serves as an example of Quantum's leadership storing and managing video.
"The Quantum StorNext solution enables us to centralize our storage, provide easy access to files, and enforce some discipline for the use of storage as part of the creative process," noted Ondrej Šejnoha, Director, Studio FAMU.
A New Storage Solution Befitting a Modern Studio
When the studio began a major physical renovation project, they saw an opportunity to start a new era for the facility with centralized storage supporting the production and post- production workflow, from ingest through post-production, playout, and archiving. FAMU also wanted easy access to files, scalable capacity for large volumes of high-resolution media, and integration with an archive solution for long-term preservation of projects. In addition, the new storage soltion needed to work with a media asset management (MAM) system to simplify the management and organization of media files while making it easier to share files.
With help from IT Service provider Agora PLUS, Studio FAMU chose an end-to-end Quantum StorNext solution, with a Quantum i500 tape library powered by the StorNext file system and data management platform. The environment is seamlessly integrated with an ELEMENTS Media Library MAM.
Scalable Capacity and Simple Remote Access to Support Hundreds of Projects
"With the StorNext file system and the integrated MAM system, students can access their work wherever they are—at home or the pub—from any kind of device. They can see files, make changes, and show their work to other people who need to see it," says Šejnoha. "Professors can also view and evaluate work remotely. It's much more convenient than moving around flash drives or external hard drives in a backpack."
Remote access to work proved to be essential when the coronavirus pandemic reached Europe. "We've been very happy to have the Quantum solution during this challenging time. With Quantum's StorNext solution, it's very easy to share anything with students, professors, and other organizations—wherever they are in the world," says Šejnoha.
