(NYSE: QTM) today announced that its StorNext® scale-out storage platform will serve as the foundation for NASA’s new Content Management & Storage System (CM&S) at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Vencore Inc., the prime contractor on the KSC Engineering Services Contract, has awarded a contract to systems integrator StorExcel to deploy a solution combining StorNext, IPV’s Curator digital asset management system and Telestream’s Vantage transcode system. The integrated solution will enable the Kennedy Space Center to centralize, manage and preserve all its digital content, including footage from high-speed cameras used during launches, video from surveillance cameras, production video, digital prints and still imagery.
