RAID Inc. StorNext FS
StorNext File System (SNFS), colloquially referred to as "StorNext" is a shared disk file system developed by Quantum corporation. StorNext enables multiple Windows, Linux and Apple workstations to access shared block storage over a fibre channel network. Raid Inc. partners with Quantum to serve several industries such as media and entertainment to deploy StorNext file-system for their streaming media applications.
StorNext has both software and hardware elements. On the front end, the file-system is managed by usually two Metadata controllers, a primary and a fail over or a metadata appliance. These MDC's act as the traffic director for the block-level file-system with no data-overhead typically associated with NAS configured network shares. Fibre Channel storage is the other key element of most StorNext file-system implementations. This is often referred to as "Production SAN" or "Production Storage Workspace."
