Qumulo’s Hybrid Cloud File System

The key to running your solutions in the multicloud

Moving from on-prem to the cloud allows organizations to focus on their core competencies, accelerate innovation, increase data security, build solutions, and reduce costs. Yet, most of the time it’s file storage which remains the last piece of infrastructure on-prem, forcing users to choose between rewriting applications and workflows, and continuing to manage the on-prem infrastructure.

Qumulo is different. How? Our enterprise-ready file system runs both on-prem and in the cloud, empowering users to move to the cloud on their terms. Qumulo eliminates the need to re-engineer business-critical workflows and applications while simultaneously reducing TCO, enabling users to take advantage of the hundreds of innovative services which reside in the cloud.

We know it can be hard to transition to the cloud, and even harder to determine which vendor is the right one for you. Organizations can be hesitant to keep all of their cloud data on just a single partner’s solution platform, for fear of lock-in, scalability limitations,or the risk of a single point of failure. For that reason, Qumulo is investing in a multicloud solution strategy, which gives our customers the flexibility to make the best choice for their business and price points. Solutions that make strategic sense to be on one platform or another because of location, pricing, or feature sets – can take advantage of Qumulo’s multicloud strategy.

“The cloud enables enterprises across all industries to unlock business opportunities by bringing agility and responsiveness to their organizations. Lifting workloads and data to the public cloud allows customers to better collaborate and manage data across regions, and across the world. Qumulo’s mission from day one has been to be the company the world trusts to store, manage and curate its data forever, whether it be on-prem or in the cloud.”

—Bill Richter, president and CEO, Qumulo

Cloud features:


Qumulo in the cloud is the exact same software which runs on-prem, so users get Cross-Protocol Permissions (XPP), snapshots, quotas, replication, and everything else they’ve come to expect from Qumulo – enabling a seamless transition from on-prem to the cloud when they’re ready.

Simplified management

Qumulo’s cloud clusters have both a rich UI and a REST API, allowing users to manage many clusters from a single location. Cluster analytics can be sent to third party tools such as Splunk via Qumulo’s REST API. All cluster infrastructure can be easily managed via the AWS/GCP consoles.

Real-time analytics

Qumulo integrated analytics deliver unmatched visibility into the file system. You can instantly identify throughput and IOPS hotspots, the most active clients and paths, and get accurate reports of how much usable storage you have. If you have a rogue process or user who’s monopolizing system resources, it’s easy to apply a quota in real-time to take back control. No more manual tree walks! Imagine an oak tree with a central nervous system that gives you real-time updates. That’s Qumulo.
