Quantum Releases Reference Architecture For Surveillance

Quantum announced the release of a new reference architecture for large-scale surveillance workloads. The reference architecture combines enhanced hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software for Quantum’s VS1110-A application servers and a unique configuration of StorNext shared file storage optimized for video surveillance. This new solution adds to the large portfolio of surveillance products offered by Quantum.

Qumulo Integrates With Commvault

Qumulo announced full integration with Commvault with new capabilities around increasing data protection as well as accelerating file data management productivity. The Qumulo Protect data services within Commvault Backup & Recovery enable customers to:

  • Manage file data changes in real-time via REST APIs to know in real-time which files within their file data sets have changed
  • Allow backup jobs to begin in mere minutes instead of hours, up to 28 times faster than previously possible.
  • Eliminate slow ‘tree-walks’ to identify file changes, often resulting in insufficient time to efficiently back up and protect data files and putting entire file data sets at risk.

AWS Announces One Zone Storage

This week AWS announced a new storage class for EFS, One Zone storage that is said to reduce costs by 47% with the same features and benefits. It is said to work by redundantly storing data within a single Availability Zone (AZ) and is ideal for customers who want cost-optimized file storage options for workloads and applications that do not require the level of availability and durability offered by regional Amazon EFS storage classes that redundantly store data across multiple geographically separated AZs. There is no minimum commitments and it is available now.

The company states that the HC100 can be combined with the CTERA Drive Connect agent for Windows and MacOS.
