Avid and Quantum join forces for Flexible New Archive Storage Options

MAM systemQuantum announces that Avid has developed a connector for the company’s Interplay | MAM system and Quantum’s StorNext Storage Manager that enables seamless integration of Quantum archive storage systems into Avid environments.

Tight Integration Enhances Long-Term Storage Options

The Avid connector for StorNext Storage Manager is claimed to give users the ability to access and control StorNext archive and restore functions through Interplay | MAM, including automated movement of content across different archive storage tiers: Quantum’s Lattus object storage, tape libraries and Q-Cloud 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.

Collaboration Provides Greater Value to Customers

Avid also has joined the Quantum Advantage Program which will provide 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.

Commenting on the joint venture, Ed Caracappa, Senior Director of Global Alliances, Avid said, “We are excited to be a part of the Quantum Advantage Program, which will help ensure mutual customers achieve the best possible solution when linking Quantum offerings to the Avid MediaCentral Platform.”

 “Through initiatives ranging from solution development to closer alignment of sales and support activities, Quantum is working closely with Avid to help Avid customers better manage their content over the long term. Together our technologies empower users to optimize their media storage and access to content on a broad range of archive platforms, providing significant time and cost savings that make it easier to achieve their creative and business goals, said Geoff Stedman, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Scale-out Storage Solutions, Quantum.

Quantum will be showcasing the new Avid archive solutions at Avid Connect 2016, April 16-17, in Las Vegas, and in the Quantum booth (SL8416) at the 2016 NAB Show, April 18-21, in Las Vegas.
