In case you missed it, this blog post recaps the five-part series that ran late last year. 

In November Qumulo released a suite of data services designed to help our customers simplify file data management at massive scale. Our goal is to make it simple and cost-effective for enterprise and government organizations to scale, secure, and achieve high performance in their complex unstructured data environments.

Qumulo’s customers now have the power to simplify the complexity of their infrastructure, accelerate innovation, and unleash the power of their data, wherever it resides. 

Here are five of our beliefs for radically simple file data management at scale. 

We believe the performance of NVMe should be available to everyone.

Qumulo NVMe Cached Performance – significantly lowers the cost of performance.

Qumulo offers the file industry’s first software to provide machine learning read and write cache leveraging NVMe. With Qumulo Core® software and two new qualified hardware options (C-192T and C-432T), Qumulo offers NVMe performance at the price of disk.

We believe you should not be held back from having access to the latest technology.

Qumulo Dynamic Scale – leverages new processor, storage and memory innovation to scale existing deployments.

Qumulo Dynamic Scale provides investment protection, enabling administrators to leverage newly qualified platforms with the latest processors, memory and storage devices–without the need for forklift upgrades, data migrations, or complex storage pool management. 

Qumulo users can add new qualified platforms into existing environments with no need to manage different storage pools or perform a data migration. The platforms are simply added to the existing environment. Data is automatically redistributed and the increased performance and capacity is made available to users and applications automatically.

We believe all data should be encrypted.

Qumulo® Secure offers automated data encryption, for free.

To help make data encryption easy and cost effective, Qumulo offers AES 256-bit software encryption at-rest as part of the Qumulo Secure set of data services. Qumulo encrypts all data, automatically. No additional third-party applications or key managers are needed and there is no added cost. Encryption comes standard, as do all Qumulo features, as part of the standard software subscription.

We believe you should never spend your weekend doing upgrades.

Instant Upgrade for Qumulo Core has 20-second upgrades with no need for maintenance windows.

Software upgrades to IT infrastructure historically required time-consuming planning, maintenance windows, and scheduled downtime. Qumulo’s Instant Upgrade completes in 20 seconds regardless of the size of the data environment. It can be executed during the business day without impacting user or application productivity.

We believe your data should not be held hostage by vendors.

Qumulo Shift simplifies the transformation of data from file to object with a visual interface

Data is typically created in a file format, but applications and developers often want to leverage capabilities and services connected to cloud object stores such as Amazon S3. Qumulo Shift makes it simple to copy data from a file solution into Amazon S3. 

The visual interface makes it even easier to leverage data in the location and format that makes innovation fastest. When data needs to be transformed from file to object, customers can simply select their choice of Amazon S3 target buckets and initiate a data copy with the click of a button.
