Qumulo, the simple way to manage exabyte-scale data anywhere, today unveiled the next version of its Scale Anywhere™ Platform, which empowers enterprises to overcome the challenges posed by unstructured data, providing a unified and scalable solution that drives efficiency, security, and business agility.
Qumulo is the simple way to manage exabyte-scale data anywhere — edge, core, or cloud — on the platform of your choice. In a world with trillions of files and objects comprising 100+ zettabytes worldwide, companies need a solution that combines the ability to work anywhere with simplicity.
"Unstructured data is everywhere in the enterprise and growing at an unprecedented rate, a reality that traditional storage solutions have constantly grappled with," says Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. "Qumulo finally fixes this with a software platform built for hybrid IT that scales to exabytes anywhere unstructured data is generated, stored, consumed, or managed."
The new platform is comprised of four major components and introduces a revolutionary new way to consume on-premises storage in the same way cloud storage is consumed.
The platform begins with Azure Native Qumulo (ANQ), the first cloud-native enterprise file system with unlimited exabyte scale, unmatched economics, and performance elasticity. Jointly developed with Microsoft, ANQ eliminates the trade-offs customers face between scale, economics, performance, and features for file services in the public cloud. ANQ’s scalable file service delivers:
Qumulo’s Scale Anywhere™ further includes Global Namespace (Q-GNS), a unified data plane for an organization's entire unstructured data, from edge to core and cloud. Q-GNS allows enterprises to access remote data as if it were local for all their workflows, from the most performance-sensitive applications to active archives. Q-GNS delivers Qumulo’s rich set of data services (multi-protocol access, enterprise security integrations, snapshots, quotas, replications, etc.) across geographically distributed systems—edge, core, or cloud.
“We are rapidly adopting cloud to store our long-term radiology images, while keeping new images on-premises,” says JD Whitlock, CIO of Dayton Children’s Hospital. “Qumulo’s Global Namespace makes it easy to bring our file-based workloads to the cloud without refactoring any applications.”
Qumulo allows customers to run Qumulo on commodity hardware or public cloud of their choice.
Nexus, Qumulo’s unified control plane, rounds out Qumulo’s next-generation Scale Anywhere™ platform. And Qumulo One provides an enterprise-level licensing program to use with any of Qumulo’s products.
Customers can now manage a globally distributed hybrid infrastructure and link distributed teams, all enabled by a single, secure enterprise platform.
