We’re thrilled to share that Gartner has named Qumulo a leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage report!
As a leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner provides insight that helps IT and business leaders make informed decisions. Gartner Magic Quadrants evaluate vendors within a market segment based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Qumulo was evaluated as one of 16 vendors in the market and was recognized as a Leader.
At Qumulo, our purpose is to build what storage should be for our customers.
We believe being recognized as a Leader in Distributed File Systems and Object Storage is a testament to our ability to anticipate the critical role data plays in businesses today, and the need for an entirely fresh approach to storing and managing that data.
Our customers have entered an era where the data of their business is where the true value is created. Data is the business for our customers today. The size of weight of data is enormous and growing. Billion file scale is common, tens and hundreds of petabytes is common, distributing workloads across regions is common, and distributing workloads across on-premise and public cloud resources is growing.
Qumulo anticipated these critical customer needs, and we provide an enterprise-class file system that is delivered as software. Software-defined storage creates freedom, choice, and flexibility for customers. They can manage their data on the same hardware public data centers run on, or manage their data using public clouds – all with the same file system.
Turning the old definition of storage on its head
At Qumulo we’re in the business of turning the old definition of storage on its head. The solutions we provide our customers span groundbreaking nearline archive, robust capacity needs, and high performance all flash platforms—and this same file system runs natively in the public cloud. We’ve enabled high performance, enterprise class storage running seamlessly on-premise and in the public cloud.
As with all our products, Qumulo QF2 solutions are built on software that continuously improves. So over time, it gets faster and more efficient, delivering better outcomes for customers.
And the best part is that our customers can access instant, real-time visibility and intelligence about the data their businesses depend on. Our solutions are easy to setup, easy to manage – see what our customers say at Gartner Peer Insights:
Qumulo excels at becoming a true partner helping us solve business problems. Qumulo has been one of the best companies to work with. We have always been treated as a partner when designing and implementing solutions. — Sr. Director of IT in the Services Industry
