Qumulo Care

Rewriting the customer success rulebook

No one likes being held hostage by high licensing costs and “innovation” that doesn’t keep up with day-to-day realities. Even worse, the support legacy NAS users do get has a way of becoming exorbitantly expensive three years into the relationship.

Qumulo’s Customer Success program, Qumulo Care, is rewriting the customer success rulebook. Qumulo Care pairs you with a dedicated Customer Success Manager (CSM) who has years of actual storage management experience. Our CSMs don’t read a phone script and pass you off — they know how to help. Every CSM has deep experience working with file storage systems and understands the associated workflows and applications.
