    Easily manage millions or billions of digital assets

    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.

    Active Archiving for Long-term Content Storage

    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.
