F-SERIES: TUNED FOR VIDEO AND IMAGE-BASED WORKLOADS
The Quantum F-Series family of high-performance NVMe storage servers is designed for studio editing and rendering of video and image-based workloads for large unstructured data sets. This content can be high-definition video, used for movie, television, and sports production; or other image-based workloads that require high-speed processing. With the F-Series, you can ingest and render UHD and high-frame-rate content faster by taking advantage of parallel processing, direct storage access, and reduced network overhead.
Quantum’s F2000 and F1000 NVMe storage servers offer the following benefits:
• Share, create, and deliver higher-resolution content faster.
• Reduce both storage and network
infrastructure costs and complexity.
• Speed up workflow and productivity with direct storage access by multi-geo users.
F-SERIES IN THE STORNEXT ENVIRONMENT
The F-Series NVMe storage servers are deployed as part of Quantum’s StorNext® scale-out storage cluster and leverage the StorNext data management capabilities to move data between high performance NVMe storage pools and other storage pools. This combination dramatically improves workflow efficiencies with the capture, edit, and finishing of high-definition content.
NVMe: INGEST, EDIT, AND FINISH CONTENT WITH LIGHTNING-FAST PERFORMANCE
• As much as 5x faster than traditional flash storage.
• Enables processing of higher-resolution content that requires higher data rates.
• Provides massive parallel performance, beneficial for large render farms.
• Ability to move to less-expensive IP-based networks than Fibre Channel.
Quantum technology and services help customers capture, create, and share digital content—and preserve and protect it for decades at the lowest cost. Quantum’s platforms provide the fastest performance for high-resolution video, images, and industrial IoT, with solutions built for every stage of the data lifecycle, from high-performance ingest to real-time collaboration and analysis and low-cost archiving. Every day the world’s leading entertainment companies, sports franchises, research scientists, government agencies, enterprises, and cloud providers are making the world
happier, safer, and smarter on Quantum.

QUANTUM F-SERIES NVM
Introduced for video and video-like data sets, the F-Series easily handles the performance requirements of ultra-high-
def content, high-resolution images, and other forms of unstructured data. The F-Series blazing-fast storage servers
offer choices to match availability, capacity, and budgetary requirements:
The F1000 provides a low-priced entry point for customers seeking the performance advantages of
NVMe without the high-availability capabilities of the F2000.
Using a single controller, the F1000 is designed to take advantage of the boost NVMe provides for
workloads that require it, and can easily scale out as needed.
5x to 10x faster than an equivalent SAS SSD storage array, the F1000 is priced similarly.
The F2000 is designed for the highest-performance workloads with the highest-availability requirements.
Using redundant and high-availability features, the F2000 is purpose-built for NVMe’s ultra-fast
streaming performance and extremely fast response times.
Like the F1000, predictable and fast network performance is possible with RDMA networking technology,
providing direct access to NVMe storage from workstations.
