The StorageDirector Q-Series is a product that is built to solve the issues of data storage in the field of media, entertainment and broadcasting fields.

From the beginning of IT, data has been a strategic resource, especially in the media and entertainment industry.  The simplicity of processes involved – sensors collect it, analysts mine the data, processing from every angle – in attempting to convert the data into a somewhat tangible entity is mainly to make or save money.  The world at present has produced more data than ever.  The velocity and volume to data flooding into the data center has created a need for energy storage systems.

The renowned developers of grid-scale software-defined storage solutions and providers of server and storage products OSNEXUS and Pogo Linux respectively have joined forces.  The partnership was made to fundamentally tackle the data storage issues by creating the StorageDirector Q-Series storage solution.  The new data storage solution excels in delivering a scalable and simplified content distribution along with storage for media, entertainment and broadcast users.
