The past twelve months have been a year of many initiatives for Qumulo France. Despite successive periods of uncertainty linked to the global pandemic, we have to admit that overall, the French market has been more dynamic than ever before.
This year was marked by customer and partner expansion, team growth, and numerous successful initiatives. With pleasure, here are some highlights from 2021.
2021 retrospective: Qumulo accelerates its presence in France
Qumulo France grew by leaps and bounds. In the media and entertainment (M&E) sector, which was already well represented in our customer portfolio, we welcomed customers including Mediatree and Cognacq Jay Image. In the public sector and the world of sports performance, the French Football Federation also equipped itself with Qumulo. We have seen growth across the world of education and research and, among other impressive customers added to our portfolio, an additional highlight includes the arrival of Aristid Retail, the leader of the French Retail Tech.
Of course, this growth could not have happened without a strong network supported by solid partnerships with leaders such as HPE and Fujitsu. This past year, Qumulo also announced its new OEM relationship with Supermicro, reinforcing our overall vision of freedom of choice for customers.
Strengthening our growing demand in France
To further support our growing demand, Qumulo France has also strengthened the team locally. We have welcomed Vincent Lamy as System Engineer, César Fétiveau to develop the public sector in France and Switzerland, Marie Saporte as Sales Development Representative, Sarah Sanchez as Customer Success Manager and finally Aline Rolland as EMEA Marketing Manager, with a special focus on Southern Europe. The development of this great team demonstrates Qumulo’s dynamic growth and continued expansion in France.
Despite the various challenges linked to the global pandemic, we continue to maintain unrivaled customer service and success. For example, we recently launched a user group dedicated to our local customer community and look forward to its growth and future successes.
In short, 2021 has been an exciting year for Qumulo France, focused on successfully addressing the many unstructured data storage pains facing our customers. One thing is certain, businesses across all industries are extending the speed, agility, and reliability of their infrastructure with the right data storage solution and migrating to the cloud.
As we head into the new year, our outlook for 2022 is “très bien!“
