With critical high-profile projects, you want to know exactly what you’re going to be leaning on for successful delivery. When the La La Land project came around it was make or break, and we were never down for a moment. Qumulo is our rock, allowing us to focus on the visual effects with absolute confidence the data is safe.- Tim LeDoux, Founder/VFX Supervisor, Crafty Apes
We needed the storage equivalent of a reliable Swiss army knife, and unfortunately our old system – Isilon – just wasn’t cutting it anymore.- Raoul Edwards, Dir, Network Systems Engineering & Field Ops, MSG Networks
From the moment we installed it, the Qumulo cluster has been rock solid. I spend zero time managing the system, and that’s my metric for good storage: I don’t ever want to see it. I just set up my notifications and monitoring, every now and then do a quick health check, and that’s it. The Qumulo storage just works.- Jason Navarro, IT manager, Eight Solutions
People’s behavior is influenced by direct, immediate feedback on the impact their work is having on the system. And it can’t just be at a macro level. With Qumulo, our employees can see real-time graphs that update as they work − providing that granular visibility is surprisingly effective.- Robert Jordan, Head of Systems, Systems Engineering & IT, Atomic Fiction
We are very excited about Qumulo’s products, team, and strategic direction. With total visibility of our data, real-time analytics and a robust API, we are excited about the possibility of highly sophisticated storage management.- Mike Brodersen, Chief Strategy Officer, FotoKem
Knowing - who, what, where and how your data is being accessed or interrogated has been something most vendors focus on after the fact and is usually a post process that can take hours and impact production. With Qumulo Core, we now have the ability to correlate storage activity with our pipeline and make changes in real-time.- Saker Klippsten, CTO, Zoic Studios
It almost makes me suspicious how easy this is to use. There’s just one panel to check, a click of a button or two, typing in a name, and that’s it. I was very impressed with that. Very impressed.- Thai Do, Director of Technology, Blind Visual Propaganda
What has us really excited about Qumulo Core is that now we can quickly determine what to save and what can be archived. That gives us a level of visibility into our data and storage that we just didn’t have before.- Grant Turner, IT Manager, Sportvision
Knowing what is going on inside the storage system in real-time - what client is doing what to the system, the capacity explorer to understand my data footprint, and knowing who and what is consuming performance. You guys have hit it out of the park with the integrated real-time analytics.- Ronald Knol, Senior Technology Consultant, Telus Studios
The analytics deliver fantastic business value for us. It allows us to be proactive, generating reports that show when data thresholds are being hit so we can move files around, alleviate burdens on specific nodes, and prevent slowdowns before they even occur.- Sam Frankiel, IT Director, Ant Farm
