Qumulo Core is now available on HPE Apollo servers, offering flexibility for enterprise customers that want next-generation scale-out file and object storage software on-premises or private cloud workloads. Built for the highest levels of performance, capacity and efficiency, Qumulo Core on HPE Apollo servers is a future-proof solution for storing and managing hundreds of petabytes and tens of billions of files and objects, providing complete data-awareness of data footprint at extreme scale.
The Qumulo QC-Series hybrid storage appliances provides a range of capacities starting from 96TB to over 1PB of raw storage across a mix of 1U and 4U nodes. The Qumulo QC-Series 1U appliances give users a choice between lower-cost entry requirements and higher performance/higher capacity needs. The Qumulo QC-Series 4U appliances give users a choice between cost-optimized requirements and the highest density, lowest cost per GB data-aware scale-out NAS solution. Qumulo Core available on HPE Apollo servers extends flexibility for customers adding a 2U option. With a starting capacity of 180TB raw per node, the HPE Apollo servers provide a denser footprint than existing QC-Series appliances.
Qumulo Core 2.5 delivers snapshots for even greater enterprise data protection and improvements in erasure coding to provide 80% efficiency. With snapshots, customers can create fine-grained policies and take billions of snapshots with easy access via NFS and SMB.
Qumulo Core 2.5 makes it possible for enterprises to understand system throughput through the lens of data. Customers can easily get a graphical representation of the file system layout with indicators of throughput and IOPS heat and an at-a-glance view of capacity and activity, helping system administrators understand how their file storage is being used. Drill down access to see what paths and clients are “hot” in real time provides easy troubleshooting of performance issues. Qumulo Core Throughput Hotspots is a graphical representation of hot paths in the system illuminating the load on the file system to help customers better understand system usage and troubleshoot performance issues.
With critical high-profile projects, you want to know exactly what you’re going to be leaning on for successful delivery. When the La La Land project came around it was make or break, and we were never down for a moment. Qumulo is our rock, allowing us to focus on the visual effects with absolute confidence the data is safe.- Tim LeDoux, Founder/VFX Supervisor, Crafty Apes
We chose Qumulo for the company's strong reputation, the flexibility and performance of the storage system, and their superb customer service.- Clark Gaylord, Chief information officer, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI)
Our research organization falls between the cracks for most storage vendors, with giant imaging sets and millions of tiny genetic sequencing scraps. Finding a system that reasonably handled all our complex workflows was difficult, and in the end only Qumulo was the right fit.- Bill Kupiec, IT Manager, Department of Embryology, Carnegie Institution of Science
For a critical digital media archive, Qumulo is the safest place I can think to put it short of directly in a backup vault. Soon we won’t need anything else but backup, high-speed virtual storage, and Qumulo.- Joel Hsia, Assistant Head for Systems Development, Marriott Library
Managing data with Qumulo is so simple it’s hard to describe the impact. It’s given us tremendous ROI in terms of time saved and problems eliminated, and having that reliable storage we can finally trust makes us eager to use it more broadly throughout the company.- John Beck, IT Manager, Hyundai Mobis
We needed the storage equivalent of a reliable Swiss army knife, and unfortunately our old system – Isilon – just wasn’t cutting it anymore.- Raoul Edwards, Dir, Network Systems Engineering & Field Ops, MSG Networks
From the moment we installed it, the Qumulo cluster has been rock solid. I spend zero time managing the system, and that’s my metric for good storage: I don’t ever want to see it. I just set up my notifications and monitoring, every now and then do a quick health check, and that’s it. The Qumulo storage just works.- Jason Navarro, IT manager, Eight Solutions
It’s impossible to make smart decisions about data when your storage is a figurative black box. Qumulo lets me tell in an instant how the data is used, who touches it and how often, so storage is no longer a technical issue but a management decision.- Nick Rathke, Assistant Director, Information Technology, Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute
People’s behavior is influenced by direct, immediate feedback on the impact their work is having on the system. And it can’t just be at a macro level. With Qumulo, our employees can see real-time graphs that update as they work − providing that granular visibility is surprisingly effective.- Robert Jordan, Head of Systems, Systems Engineering & IT, Atomic Fiction
We are very excited about Qumulo’s products, team, and strategic direction. With total visibility of our data, real-time analytics and a robust API, we are excited about the possibility of highly sophisticated storage management.- Mike Brodersen, Chief Strategy Officer, FotoKem
We were impressed with Qumulo’s flash-first hybrid design for performance and the real-time analytics that enable us to understand our data footprint and performance by user, application, and project across a single large shared storage resource.- Ion Moraru, Associate Professor of Cell Biology and Director of the High Performance Computing Facility, UConn Health
Qumulo’s data-aware scale-out storage aligns perfectly with our mission of collecting massive amounts of data from hundreds of countries around the world to gain new insights into patterns of human disease. We chose Qumulo for its unique combination of real-time analytics, massive scalability, and ease of use.- James Bullard, Director of IT Services, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at University of Washington
Cheap and cheerful storage doesn’t cut it when it comes to our need for high performance, large shared capacity, and multiple parallel I/O paths. We need really high performance I/O to process datasets that are much too large to fit into memory. Plus, having real-time visibility into our data is the icing on the cake.- Nick Rathke, Assistant Director, Information Technology, Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute
Knowing - who, what, where and how your data is being accessed or interrogated has been something most vendors focus on after the fact and is usually a post process that can take hours and impact production. With Qumulo Core, we now have the ability to correlate storage activity with our pipeline and make changes in real-time.- Saker Klippsten, CTO, Zoic Studios
We are really excited about the next generation scale-out NAS technology that Qumulo has created. Having real-time visibility into data and storage at scale is game changing.- Nathan Larsen, Director of IT, Sinclair Oil
It almost makes me suspicious how easy this is to use. There’s just one panel to check, a click of a button or two, typing in a name, and that’s it. I was very impressed with that. Very impressed.- Thai Do, Director of Technology, Blind Visual Propaganda
What has us really excited about Qumulo Core is that now we can quickly determine what to save and what can be archived. That gives us a level of visibility into our data and storage that we just didn’t have before.- Grant Turner, IT Manager, Sportvision
Knowing what is going on inside the storage system in real-time - what client is doing what to the system, the capacity explorer to understand my data footprint, and knowing who and what is consuming performance. You guys have hit it out of the park with the integrated real-time analytics.- Ronald Knol, Senior Technology Consultant, Telus Studios
The analytics deliver fantastic business value for us. It allows us to be proactive, generating reports that show when data thresholds are being hit so we can move files around, alleviate burdens on specific nodes, and prevent slowdowns before they even occur.- Sam Frankiel, IT Director, Ant Farm
I’ve got a lot of things in my IT infrastructure that keep me up at night, but Qumulo Core is not one of them.- Geoff Froh, Deputy Director and Chief Technology Officer, Densho
