Apple quantum is a leader in delivering software for digital content creation and management, Apple is known throughout media & entertainment, education, and other verticals for its Final Cut products and Xsan file system.
Xsan is software that enables multiple Mac computers to concurrently access terabytes — even petabytes — of storage on Xserve RAID over high-speed Fibre Channel so artists can share data faster and consolidate storage. Quantum supplements this solution with StorNext FX, data management software that enables Apple Quantum customers to attach applications running on Windows, Linux, and UNIX to their Xsan and share content across more systems.
Together, Apple and Quantum enable users to create award winning content faster and eliminate bottlenecks in the creative process. Benefits include:

Re-creating digital intermediaries, animation, digital images and other media files is painful if not impossible. Customers can eliminate the need to go back to source tapes or re-create content by using StorNext Storage Manager with Xsan. Using Quantum’s iMover technology, StorNext Storage Manager automatically creates copies of your digital assets on secondary storage for data protection and disaster recovery. The Storage Manager supports disk, tape, and disk with de-duplication so you can get the performance and offsite storage capabilities that are right for your needs.
In addition to data protection, Storage Manager can also be used to move files from primary disk to more cost-effective archive tiers. StorNext virtualizes storage tiers so that data movement is non-disruptive and staff never has to worry about where data is located. In the end, you get the cost savings of mass storage without the hassle and delays of going back to source tapes when you need to access content.
