Qumulo Introduces New Suite of Data Services to Radically Simplify File Data Management at Scale

New Capabilities Simplify, Secure and Lower Operational Costs

Qumulo, the leading file data platform that helps organizations easily store and manage file data so they can build and scale their applications with unrivaled freedom, control and real-time visibility, today announced a new suite of data services that radically simplify managing massive amounts of file data. Qumulo unveiled two new data services, Qumulo® Secure and Qumulo Dynamic Scale, and introduced advancements including Instant Software Upgrade to Qumulo Core®, the industry’s first NVMe Cached Performance and Qumulo Shift’s new visual interface.

“Radical simplicity is critical for customers to be successful with unstructured data. Our software-driven file data platform offers enterprise-level capabilities that radically simplify the process of today’s digital transformation,” said Ben Gitenstein, VP of Product, Qumulo. “With the data services we announced today, Qumulo’s customers can simplify the complexity of their infrastructure, accelerate innovation, and unleash the power of their data, wherever it resides.”

NVMe Cached Performance: Significantly lowering the cost of performance

Although many workloads, such as data analytics, research computing, and rich media content creation, benefit from low latency and massive throughput, access to the most performant leading-edge technologies has historically been accessible only to specialized workloads with large budgets.

Qumulo has broken this paradigm, introducing the file industry’s first software to provide machine learning optimized read and write cache leveraging NVMe. The intelligent cache manages data on the optimal storage media to get both high performance and cost-effective capacity. With the introduction of the latest release of Qumulo Core software and two new qualified hardware options (C-192T and C-432T), Qumulo now offers NVMe performance at the price of disk.

“The new Qumulo Core capability to use NVMe as cache enables us to meet our performance and budget needs by providing great economics from very dense hard drives combined with its great caching capabilities on extremely fast NVMe drives,” said Serkan Yalcin, Director of IT, Infrastructure Dev/Ops, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. “Qumulo’s intelligent caching, without managing policies, has been great and provides even more value for us with NVMe as the caching layer. These features, combined with their great customer success experience, really empower us to focus on our mission of bringing population health data to the world.”

Qumulo Dynamic Scale: Leverage new processor, storage and memory innovation to scale existing deployments

Data is growing more rapidly every year. Users need access to new technology to keep pace. Historically, organizations have had to worry about when to invest in new technology, concerned they may miss the window to access new advancements that may be imminently released. The introduction of Qumulo Dynamic Scale enables administrators to leverage newly qualified platforms with the latest processors, memory and storage devices without the need for forklift upgrades, data migrations, or complex storage pool management.

Qumulo users now can add new qualified platforms into existing environments with no need to manage different storage pools or perform a data migration. The new platforms are simply added to the existing environment, data is automatically redistributed, and the increased performance and capacity are automatically made available to users and applications.

“Everyone from the marketing group to our dot-com and interactive groups is relying on it. We needed the storage equivalent of a reliable Swiss army knife, and unfortunately, our old system wasn’t cutting it anymore,” said Raoul Edwards, Director, Network Systems Engineering and Field Ops at MSG Networks.
