Qumulo, the leader in data-aware scale-out NAS, today announced that it has been named one of “Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For” by Seattle Business Magazine. The award honors 100 companies based in Washington who are setting unprecedented standards for leadership, benefits, work environment, training programs and more. This marks the third time Qumulo has been recognized for excellence in the workplace, following its Entrepreneur 2015 Top Company Cultures and Puget Sound Business Journal’s 2015 Washington’s Best Workplaces award wins.
“We’re honored to be named one of the best places to work in Washington by Seattle Business Magazine,” said Peter Godman, Co-founder and CEO of Qumulo. “We owe all of our success to our stellar team, and take pride in providing them with a positive work environment that fosters creativity and growth.”
Since emerging from stealth in March 2015, Qumulo has been recognized with over 10 industry awards for its outstanding leadership and product innovation, including Puget Sound Business Journal 40 Under 40, Gold in TechTarget’s SearchStorage and Storage Magazine Products of the Year, CRN Channel Chiefs and ChannelE2E 100. Additionally, Qumulo was named a “Vendor to Watch” by leading industry analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates.
Qumulo’s latest award win highlights what has been a particularly successful year for the company, which announced $32.5 million in an oversubscribed Series C funding round earlier this month to build on momentum and bring next generation scale-out NAS software to the modern enterprise. The Series C round included participation from new investors Allen & Company, Top Tier Capital Partners, and Tyche Partners, and existing venture investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), Madrona Venture Group, Highland Capital Partners, and Valhalla Partners, bringing its total funding to $100 million.
In April, the company announced an upgrade to its flagship software product, introducing Qumulo Core 2.0, along with three new QC-Series hybrid storage appliances – the QC40, QC104, and QC260. Qumulo’s flexible software and hardware design enables customers to ride the commodity hardware curve – with an agile platform that can readily be refreshed with the latest and greatest hardware for maximum performance, capacity and cost benefits.
In just over a year, Qumulo has amassed over 60 enterprise customers. Qumulo Core is currently in production in commercial high performance computing and large-scale unstructured data environments, with customers including Ant Farm, Atomic Fiction, Blind Studios, Densho, Eight Solutions, FotoKem, MSG Networks, Sinclair Oil, Sportvision, TELUS Studios, UConn Health, University of Utah Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, ZOIC Studios, Vaisala, and many others.
With ongoing industry recognition for company momentum, corporate culture, product innovation and outstanding leadership, Qumulo is poised for continued growth and success in 2016 as the leader in data-aware scale-out NAS.
