Four quadrants. Four years. One position.

Qumulo announced today that we have been named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage for the fourth year in a row!

We believe our ability to continually innovate and execute at the rapid pace required by customers helped us achieve this recognition. We want to thank each and every one of our customers for relying on Qumulo to help them manage over 300 billion files.

Fortune 500 companies in healthcare and biotech, and some of the world’s largest film and animation studios and research institutions rely on Qumulo to manage hundreds of billions of files, exabytes of storage with radical simplicity. File data continues to fuel our progress as a society, and organizations are tackling data problems in new ways every day. Qumulo makes it easy and scalable for these organizations to manage unstructured data anywhere, from the data center to all major public clouds, including—AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

Innovate and Execute: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

We aren’t slowing our pace. It’s just the opposite, we are moving more rapidly than ever before. Over the past year, we have continued our notable growth trajectory by expanding to new geographies, adding new partners and products, and growing an already impressive customer roster. Additionally, Qumulo has expanded its leadership team, adding several new executives in support of our growth initiatives; launched a native, managed Azure service, Qumulo on Azure as a Service; delivered support for Qumulo on AWS Outposts, and introduced an expanded relationship with HPE to deliver an all-NVMe appliance based on HPE servers.

We remain dedicated to our core mission: providing a customer-centric approach to innovation that drives the creation of innovative products and solutions that deliver fast value in a radically simple way.

This rapid, constant innovation helps customers like IHME lead research to create vaccines including for COVID-19; helps San Diego Supercomputer Center advance space exploration through massive research projects; helps award-winning animation studios like Industrial Brothers bring children’s stories to life through new digital content; and helps some of the world’s leading hospitals, like Isala Hospital in the Netherlands, provide optimal patient care by making sure physicians have fast access to patients’ full medical imagery for rapid analysis.

“Qumulo has been a huge game-changer. Now we don’t have to worry about whether our creative teams will have what they need to make tight production deadlines. That is how much Qumulo’s cloud file data platform has improved our business and our lives.” – Jean-Paul Godmaire, Head of IT, Industrial Brothers.
