SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in big data management and data protection, today announced that its Lattus™ family of object storage-based disk archives has been named a "Best of Show" award finalist for the Bio-IT World Conference which takes place next week. This award recognizes exceptional innovation in technologies used by life sciences professionals.
Ideal for petabyte-scale data archive environments, Quantum's Lattus serves as a "forever disk archive" and combines next-generation object storage with file access technologies and user-defined, policy-based tiering of data. This offers a new nearline storage option that is more durable than RAID through self-healing and protection capabilities, and lower latency access for predictably fast retrieval times at a price more typical of long-term storage.
Other Lattus benefits include:
- Unparalleled scalability to support growing collections of research data;
- Extreme durability to ensure data is not lost;
- Automatic multi-site protection without the need for replication;
- Self-migration for seamless upgrades to new storage technologies;
- Fast file access using StorNext® File System, HTTP REST or CIFS/NFS; and
- Cost-effective, high-capacity archive capability across global locations.
Quantum will showcase its newest Lattus offering and other big data solutions at Bio-IT World booth #227, as well as moderate a track on Technologies and Application for Data Handling and Integration on Wednesday, April 10. The Bio-IT World Conference will be held at the World Trade Center in Boston, April 9-11.
