Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, customers who consume Azure on a CSP subscription can subscribe to ANQ. The CSP subscribes to ANQ via Marketplace and invoices the customer. Customers who have a CSP but do not consume Azure on a CSP subscription can subscribe to ANQ directly. When a CSP subscribes to ANQ, Qumulo can offer the CSP margin via Marketplace. When a customer subscribes directly, Qumulo can offer our partner a finder’s fee. Later in 2023, Qumulo anticipates being able to replace the finder’s fee with margin via Multiparty Private Offer (MPO).
At launch in April 2021, Qumulo on Azure used VNet Peering to connect the customer’s Azure Virtual Network (VNet) to the file system. This allowed full bi-directional network communication between a customer’s workloads and the file system. VNet Peering required the customer administrator and Qumulo SRE team to manually connect these networks and coordinate IP ranges. VNet Peering does not support Network Security Groups (NSG) and traffic is billed for on both sides of the peered connection.
VNet Injection eliminates the requirement for VNet Peering. It creates network resources (virtual NICs) that customers can manage. For example, they can use an NSG that limits access to specific ports and protocols. These network resources are automatically provisioned upon ANQ subscription and destroyed upon termination of the subscription. All VNet Peering charges are eliminated and NSGs are now supported.
ANQ is available in all nine US public regions: East US, East US 2, West US, West US 2, West US 3, North Central US, West Central US, South Central US, and Central US. ANQ will be available outside of the US in 11 regions across the EU, UK, and Canada starting on July 31: France Central, Germany West Central, North Europe, Norway East, Sweden Central, Switzerland North, UK South, UK West, West Europe, Canada Central, and Canada East.
Customers can also specify the Availability Zone associated with the region where their Qumulo will be placed, which will decrease latency, increase availability, and eliminate cross-zone networking charges when Microsoft introduces these charges in July 2023.
Customers can add capacity to their initial configuration by contacting their Qumulo sales or customer success representative through email, phone, or Slack. Customers cannot make changes to region, availability zone, or storage class (Standard or Performance) after provisioning. These types of changes will require a migration of data to a new ANQ instance.
