High-Performance, Scalable Primary Storage

Quantum Xcellis optimizes workflow and shared access by combining historically separate silos into a single powerful, flexible, and highly scalable system that includes storage, data policies, movement and management, and access control. Designed to get the most out of Quantum StorNext, Xcellis combines the power of SAN and the low cost connectivity of NAS to simplify storage architecture and operations.

Xcellis is sold as a base unit with optional upgrades that allows customers to right size their system and grow on demand; simplifying deployment, management, monitoring, and reporting using built-in functionality.
