How do you support an active research community generating data at massive scale while also archiving and curating billions of digital files, petabytes in size, for posterity? With a solution designed to adapt to the needs of research and archival departments, while providing advanced cataloging and curating analytics. Qumulo Core gives higher education leadership the power to manage and store billions of digital assets with real-time visibility and control built directly into the file system.
Research programs. Student data and records. Library archival content. The ability to store, manage, and curate ever-expanding growing libraries of media and other educational content is critical to the mission of higher education. Qumulo Core’s integrated file system analytics provide an accurate real-time data footprint, even at incredible scale. With metadata built directly into the Qumulo Scalable File System (QSFS) as an intrinsic element, storage administrators have unprecedented visibility into their data and storage, and can easily tell which users or workloads are impacting performance and capacity.
Transactional or sequential access patterns. Small or large file sizes. Qumulo Core supports them all—within a single file system. Qumulo Core delivers industry-leading scalability—from 4 to over 1,000 nodes in a single cluster and 100 terabytes to over 360 petabytes in a single file system.
Qumulo Core architecture was designed to handle data growth and the unique needs of individual academic groups while providing uncompromising protection and availability to ensure always-available access to all data on-campus and elsewhere.
That’s why Qumulo gives storage administrators the ability to scale infrastructure on-demand, growing their working, archival storage, and scratch environments—no matter how fast or how often needs change. Qumulo Core is software that runs on premise or in the cloud—to support active archiving for the life of the content—without the barriers of proprietary hardware or software.
The Qumulo Core architecture was designed to enable the next frontier of Higher Education archival and scientific data storage available to research projects, faculty, students, and the public.
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
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
