Quantum launches new NVMe storage appliance


SAN JOSE, Calif. — Data storage company Quantum Corporation is rolling out the next generation of its Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) storage hardware.

Quantum has released the latest iteration of its F-series, the F2100 NVMe storage device, for faster performance and more NVMe storage capacity than previous generations, according to the company last month.

The appliance is intended to help media and entertainment companies and corporate video teams use the speed and parallel processing power of the NVMe transfer protocol to “accelerate” production workflows, rendering and processing. videos and pictures.

Quantum believes the F2100 can now meet storage demands that previously would have required “many racks of spinning disk storage systems”.

The F2100 includes the latest Quantum block storage software, including more flexible configuration options and improved reporting and monitoring.

The F2100 is also integrated with Quantum Cloud-Based Analytics (CBA) software for proactive system monitoring.

Quantum customers can access their customer applications using the MyQuantum service delivery platform.

The F2100 “builds on” what Quantum introduced a few years ago with its F-Series platform, said Brian Pawlowski, SVP and Chief Development Officer, Quantum.
