The need for efficient, high-performance processing of file-based data is at the heart of innovation and discovery in life sciences. Qumulo Core was designed to enable the next frontier of scientific breakthroughs, from gene sequencing to genetic analyzers, drug discovery, and beyond. Qumulo gives leaders of data-intensive life science enterprises the power to manage and store billions of digital assets with real-time visibility and control built directly into the file system.
From specialized life science workflows like genomic sequencing and analyzing, drug discovery, microscopy, 3D imaging, blood analysis, proteomic and biomedical research, to forecasting and modeling, everyone’s facing an unyielding explosion of data.
Qumulo Core’s integrated file system analytics provide accurate real-time data footprint answers, 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.
Science doesn’t slow down when technology does. 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 the project’s 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 Life Science breakthroughs, from gene sequencing, genetic analyzers, drug discovery, and large scale storage.
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
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
