How is NASA scaling its storage system?

|November 13, 2015 0

BENGALURU, INDIA: NASA is upgrading content management and storage systems.

Vencore, the prime contractor on the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Engineering Services Contract, has awarded a contract to systems integrator StorExcel to deploy a solution combining Quantum StorNext, IPV’s Curator digital asset management system and Telestream’s Vantage media processing platform.

The StorNext system to be deployed by NASA provides multitier storage, including a metadata appliance, primary disk storage and an archive-enabled tape library. In combination with IPV Curator and Telestream’s Vantage system, StorNext will enable the agency to:

•    Manage more than 15 different digital formats across the entire content lifecycle — import, transcode, process, distribute, export and retention/preservation;

•    Search, preview and access any of the content through a secure Web-based interface; and

•    Scale to more than 10 PB of storage capacity.

Lance Hukill, President, StorExcel, said, “When it comes to meeting the storage needs of demanding workflows, StorNext is far superior to any other scale-out storage solution. In addition to providing the highest performance, lowest possible TCO and anytime/anywhere access to data, it works seamlessly with other leading technologies in an extremely powerful ecosystem — as is the case here with IPV Curator and Telestream Vantage.”
