Published on

Traditional storage and file sharing infrastructures cannot normally scale to the tens of Petabytes and tens of
thousands of connected users that globally distributed enterprise wide cloud deployments require. Quantum
shows how using their StorNext 4.0 data management solution, this can be achieved using common and open
hardware platforms.
