Real-Time Analytics

Qumulo Core’s real-time analytics help storage administrators obtain instant answers about their data footprint by explaining usage patterns and which users or workloads are impacting their performance and capacity. With Qumulo Core real-time analytics you can:

  • Immediately identify, for any point in time, where in a file system data was added or removed, enabling rapid culprit identification
  • Drill down to understand which files have been added and deleted by path
  • Answer questions of “Where did all of my storage capacity go?” and “When will I run out of storage space and why?”
  • View your capacity usage, total system IOPS and throughput, and any actionable items
  • Visualize a graphical system map of the file system and aggregated metadata
  • View the hottest 20 client IP’s
  • Understand how the IOPS load is distributed across the file system
  • Instantly see the total raw, usable and available space in real-time
  • Identify the top consumers of storage capacity

Scalable, Efficient, and Resilient Data Protection with Erasure Coding

QC-Series-KeyFeatures

Qumulo Core enables the use of the highest capacity drives on the market today (10TB, 8TB, 6TB HGST Ultrastar Helium drives) and delivers less than one hour rebuild times for uninterrupted operations at scale. Customers will see up to 33 percent increase in usable storage capacity including the ability to efficiently handle tens of billions of small and large files. Qumulo Core also delivers +4 protection and scale using +2 overhead and performance, reducing protection overhead and improving performance on large systems. And with Reed-Solomon erasure codes, Qumulo Core can withstand up to two concurrent drive failures or one storage node failure without loss of data.
