Simplicity is defined as the quality or condition of being easy to understand or do.
At Qumulo, we couldn’t agree more. Whether you are talking about our Installation & Configuration; Managing a Qumulo Cluster; Expanding Capacity/Performance; Troubleshooting Problems or running a “Lean IT” organization, simplicity and ease-of-use are of paramount importance and are things we are always focused on delivering for our customers. When we talk about Installation & Configuration, we are referring to the ability to install and configure a Qumulo cluster in less than 60 minutes. Also, once the system is racked and cabled, a Qumulo cluster can be created in six clicks. Don’t just take our word for it, see what our customers have to say about how easy it is to setup and configure our systems:
With regards to Managing a Qumulo Cluster, it couldn’t be easier. We provide a simple, intuitive web user interface (UI) that is very easy to understand and manage. Through the UI, admins can gain powerful insights into the clusters data through Qumulo Core’s real-time analytics of cluster capacity and performance. Everyday tasks like creating a new SMB or NFS share are intuitive and fast. Gone are the days of complex storage administration that require pages of user manuals and days or weeks of specialized training.
Expanding Capacity/Performance on a Qumulo cluster is another great example of our simplicity and ease-of-use. Simply rack the node next to an existing Qumulo cluster, plug in the Ethernet and power and turn it on. The cluster will recognize the new node and the UI will issue a prompt to “Add Node”. With a single click, the new node is joined in less than 60 seconds to the cluster and the background process starts to automagically redistribute the data across all nodes in the cluster.
Troubleshooting Problems on a Qumulo cluster couldn’t be easier to do with the simple, easy to understand UI. Whether it is through the Dashboard, Integrated Analytics, Capacity or Performance screens, users can easily view a summary of their cluster’s data or drill-down to quickly identify and diagnose what’s going on with their cluster. Our online cloud-based monitoring tool provides a second level of monitoring to help troubleshoot the overall health of a cluster. With this real-time data, our Customer Success Managers (CSM’s) can proactively contact customers to assist in any necessary troubleshooting.
Another benefit of our simplicity and ease-of-use is giving our customers the ability to run “Lean IT” organizations. By this, we mean that after a quick, one-hour training or less, storage admins are able to rack, stack, power-up and manage a Qumulo cluster. We remove the day-to-day storage administration hassles that traditional storage systems require and allow IT to focus on higher-value activities.
While the above descriptions highlight concrete examples of how simplicity and ease-of-use benefits Qumulo customers, this translates into real business value in the following ways:
