OSNEXUS announces a new NAS to Cloud tiering feature in its QuantaStor platform that enables Media Asset Management platforms to dynamically tier media content to Microsoft Azure blob as a low-cost archive storage tier.

QuantaStor 5.6 now enables automatic storage tiering of media assets to Microsoft Azure blob storage as a cost-effective long term archive solution.

"QuantaStor’s new cloud storage tiering feature brings a new level of cost efficiency to MAM as companies can now easily offload content to the cloud and that content still appears to be on their local QuantaStor NAS" said Steven Umbehocker, CEO of OSNEXUS.

OSNEXUS, the leading developer of grid-scale software-defined storage solutions, today announced a new NAS to Cloud tiering feature in its latest QuantaStor 5.6 release that enables Media Asset Management (MAM) platforms to dynamically tier media content to Microsoft® Azure blob as a low-cost archive storage tier.

MAM platforms require high-performance NAS storage systems for local media asset editing and playback, but as assets age, they need to be archived to free up space on higher cost NAS systems. Traditionally that migration has been to tape but with low-cost cloud options like Azure Blob, one can now securely and cost-effectively back up to the cloud.

OSNEXUS has created a highly-performing, highly-available NAS storage solution on QuantaStor for MAM platforms that enables users to set up automatic storage tiering to cloud object storage including Microsoft Azure blob.

“QuantaStor’s new cloud storage tiering feature brings a new level of cost efficiency to MAM as companies can now easily offload content to the cloud and that content still appears to be on their local QuantaStor NAS, enabling editors and artists to easily find the content because the system leaves file links behind after data migration,” said Steven Umbehocker, CEO of OSNEXUS. “Restore times are also improved as MAM systems can retrieve segments of video content from archived files without having to restore the full content stream as would be the case with tape.”

“We’ve been extremely pleased with QuantaStor’s Backup to Cloud capabilities and have worked closely with OSNEXUS to integrate it with the Dalet Media Asset Management platform,” said Paulo Lima, CEO of GTC. “These new capabilities are being leveraged by our major football club customers and they see significant time and cost savings versus previous asset archiving strategies.”

QuantaStor cloud backup uses policies to migrate files from QuantaStor NAS to Microsoft Azure blob storage based on file age. QuantaStor works with Dalet media asset management to enable low-cost archive to Microsoft Azure with easy media recovery including video segments within files without having to download all of the content.

The OSNEXUS QuantaStor platform delivers a complete array of enterprise features and capabilities for file, block, and object storage. Additionally, it addresses a broad set of storage use cases including server virtualization, big data, cloud computing, and high-performance applications through scale-out physical and virtual storage appliances.
