Customers are our magnetic field
Qumulo helps customers who use massive-scale unstructured data to sequence genomes, discover new drugs, make movies, build intelligent vehicles, and find insight from petabytes of file data. We help them by building petabyte-scale file systems in the public cloud, in their data centers, and increasingly at the edge.
We obsess over creating simplicity and delight for our customers. Our business model is built around winning new customers and keeping them happy. Our Net Promoter Score (NPS) backs that up, with Qumulo regularly earning an 80 NPS or better. Our customers’ satisfaction is the outcome of building powerful file data products that are easy to use.
The Qumulo Core file data platform is a scale-out distributed file system that lives in user space. Because our system is software defined, and follows a CI/CD methodology with a modular and extendable codebase, it runs natively in the public cloud as well as on commodity hardware.
We’ve built Qumulo Core over the last 8 years by listening and innovating. We have hundreds of customers running our file data products across the globe, on-premises and in the public cloud. Learn about our next major release, Qumulo Core 4.0.
Industry analysts have come along for the ride too; for example, Gartner has recognized Qumulo as a leader in distributed file systems for 3 years in a row.
