November News and Product Briefs

November 26, 2012 | Quantum Corp. unveiled a new family of wide area storage solutions, Lattus, which provides globally-distributed disk-based archives that are extremely scalable and cost-effective, and allows storage of data forever on disk without interruption or migration.  Integrating dispersed object storage and Quantum file system technologies, these solutions offer a new approach to archiving that overcomes the limitations and inefficiencies posed by traditional disk architectures in multi-petabyte storage environments. Lattus-X, the first product in the Lattus family, is a wide area storage solution with NAS access that will be generally available next month. In addition, Quantum plans to introduce two other Lattus solutions in 2013, a policy-tiered disk archive storage system leveraging the company’s StorNext Storage Manager software and a cloud-based disk archive offering.  Quantum 

Media Cybernetics announces the release of a new DAB Analysis App for Image-Pro Premier image analysis software. The DAB Analysis App allows pathologists and immunohistochemistry (IHC) researchers to automatically identify and analyze DAB-labeled tissue in digital images. This new app is designed to save hours of research time, as users will no longer need to manually identify labeled tissue. The automated and repeatable nature of the app also ensures that results are consistent across multiple images and tissue samples. Media Cybernetics
