    Easily manage millions or billions of digital assets

    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.

    Active Archiving for Long-term Content Storage

    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.
