Tight Integration Enhances Long-Term Storage Options

The Avid connector for StorNext Storage Manager gives users the ability to access and control StorNext(R) archive and restore functions through Interplay | MAM, including automated movement of content across different archive storage tiers: Quantum's Lattus(R) object storage, tape libraries and Q-Cloud(R) services. Integrated into various business processes within Interplay | MAM, this solution provides more intelligent, long-term content management, faster access to a nearline archive tier via standard network protocols and better protection of Avid projects with an archive strategy.

In addition to developing a solution that enables tight integration of Avid Interplay | MAM with Quantum archive solutions, Avid also has joined the Quantum Advantage Program". This program provides a platform for partners to test and qualify their technology with Quantum offerings and provide integrated, best-in-class solutions that deliver enhanced value to customers' workflows.
