File System for Apple Xsan Broadens Client Support to Include SGI IRIX and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 4.0

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: DSS), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today introduced the latest version of its StorNext(R) FX data management software, which allows broader data sharing and workflow consolidation in Apple(R) Xsan(TM) environments to include applications running on other operating systems such as Linux, Windows(R), and UNIX. With today's introduction of StorNext FX version 1.4, Quantum has added client support for SGI IRIX 6.5.29 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 4.0, Update 3.

"A key benefit of StorNext FX is its ability to enhance collaboration and streamline workflow by allowing Xsan environments to support applications that require non-Mac operating systems, resulting in more efficient customer project management," said Paul Zuhorski, director, software products for Quantum. "By reducing storage complexity and consolidating disk resources, customers who use StorNext FX find cost savings as well."

Customers use StorNext FX to streamline production by eliminating time-consuming network file transfers and offering concurrent access to data between Apple Xsan and all major Linux, Windows and UNIX platforms. Customers also benefit from reduced storage complexity and associated costs by eliminating the need to manage separate storage volumes on individual hosts and enabling standardization of cross-company business processes. Ideal for data-intensive industries, StorNext(R) FX is a critical component of company-wide Xsan installations because it allows non-Apple systems and applications to rapidly share data within an Apple environment.

In addition to Mac OS X, StorNext FX 1.4 also provides support for Microsoft(R) Windows, Red Hat(R) and Novell(R) SUSE(TM) Linux, SGI(R) IRIX(R), Sun Solaris(TM), HP-UX, IBM(R) AIX(R), and Cray(R) UNICOS/mp(TM). StorNext FX 1.4 is available now through Quantum's worldwide network of partners.
