Quantum has announced general availability of StorNext 6, a major new release of the company’s award-winning StorNext® scale-out file system. It delivers a unique combination of new advanced data management features for on-premise, hybrid cloud and public cloud environments and industry-leading streaming performance. StorNext 6 is now shipping with the company’s Xcellis® workflow storage solutions, enabling users to overcome the limitations of traditional NAS systems in keeping up with the demands of large, rapidly growing data-intensive workloads and driving business value from that data. This latest StorNext release provides more efficient and cost-effective ways to share and access files across geographically distributed teams, to manage and protect archived data, and to audit changes to data throughout its lifecycle.

StorNext 6 is now shipping with all newly purchased Xcellis appliances and is also available at no additional cost to current Xcellis users running StorNext 5 under existing support contracts.


Molly Presley, vice president, global marketing, Quantum said, “As we talk to customers, it’s clear that traditional NAS and general-purpose, scale-out storage offerings often can’t meet the performance and parallel workload demands resulting from the rapid growth of large unstructured data volumes. In contrast, our StorNext 6-based Xcellis workflow storage solutions provide an unparalleled combination of high performance and advanced data management that enables users in highly data-intensive environments to achieve their business and mission objectives more efficiently and cost-effectively.”
