Qumulo named a Leader for the 5th straight year in the Magic Quadrant™ for Distributed File Systems & Object Storage

Authored by:

Oops, we did it AGAIN! High fives all around! In October 2022, Gartner released its 2022 Gartner™ Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage and Qumulo was named a Leader for the fifth straight year. 

The Gartner™ Magic Quadrant is research that helps I&O leaders to assess the key attributes, vision and execution of distributed file systems and object storage vendors. Qumulo believes its position in the Leader quadrant is evidence of our suitability for the most mission-critical and large-scale workloads, whether they are run on-premises or in the cloud. Qumulo has executed well against its current vision and is well positioned for tomorrow, landing Qumulo in the coveted Leader Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 5 years straight.  

In the last year, Qumulo has introduced new features to support more use cases and broader access to unstructured data, simplifying IT infrastructure by eliminating silos and making workloads portable across on-prem and cloud. Among Qumulo’s new offerings: more node hardware options, including new  NVMe-based hardware from HPE and support for a wider range of options from Supermicro. For cloud customers, Qumulo has broadened its Azure offering to include all North America regions, updated its Shift replication service to include bi-directional mobility of file data to and from cloud object storage, and added a Kubernetes-based Container Storage Interface driver to enable a wider range of cloud-native workflows. Finally, Qumulo has expanded its multi-protocol portfolio to include NFSv4.1 and S3 object access to all shared data.  

What Makes Qumulo a Leader

Qumulo is available on all three major public clouds: Azure, AWS, and GCP. This offers our customers flexibility in choice, whether it be a hybrid or multi-cloud deployment. Customers can easily move their data between their data centers on-premises and the cloud without having to refactor their applications, simplifying hybrid cloud management for customers like Casepoint. “Qumulo’s performance and scalability on Azure makes it possible for us to focus on enabling business workflows while taking advantage of cloud technology. With Qumulo, we are equipped with the freedom, speed and performance we need to rapidly innovate and transform our data into business value in any environment.” Sundhar Rajan CIO, Casepoint.

This is a level unheard of in the past, and it highlights how much Qumulo has helped us to condense our production timelines when required and allow artists to have more iterations in less time, overall resulting in higher-quality final work.” Jeremy Brousseau Head of IT, Cinesite.
