posted in: Press Release
osnexus-filecatalyst Ottawa, ON and Bellevue, Washington –  FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, announced today a new integration partnership with OSNEXUS, the leading developer of Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions. FileCatalyst now directly integrates with OSNEXUS’ QuantaStor SDS solution to support multiple media workflows and allow for the accelerated movement of digital assets into QuataStor SDS regardless of physical location. “OSNEXUS focuses on continuous innovation and places a strong emphasis on product quality for our customers,” said Steven Umbehocker, CEO of OSNEXUS. “Our partnership with FileCatalyst enables our users to take advantage of FileCatalyst technology to accelerate and manage file transfers for content distribution, file sharing, media workflows and offsite backups.” Software Defined Storage enables enterprises to use commodity server hardware interchangeably for compute and storage as opposed to traditional storage solutions that lock IT organizations into proprietary hardware and filesystems with limited protocol support. OSNEXUS, with its QuantaStor SDS platform, is the only SDS vendor that delivers a unified, scale-out file, block and object platform on open filesystems to form storage grids up to 64 physical or virtual storage appliances and 64 Petabytes locally or dispersed across geographies. “We are excited to announce the integration partnership of FileCatalyst and OSNEXUS,” said Alan Atkinson, VP of Business Development. “This integration will allow QuantaStor users to send their files to software defined storage deployments at speeds of up to 10 Gbps, greatly improving their workflow productivity.” FileCatalyst will exhibit at IBC in Amsterdam from September 8-12, where FileCatalyst will showcase FileCatalyst Central version 3.7 – the technology used by NBC Olympics in their production of the Games in Rio.
