Gartner, Inc. positioned Qumulo in the Leaders quadrant based on its ability to execute and its completeness of vision.
“Today’s organizations are fueling innovation and driving discoveries by embracing digitalization and cloud computing. The Qumulo file data platform is at the heart of these strategic initiatives,” said Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. “Our vision of making it easy for customers to store, manage and build with file data at massive scale continues to be unwavering. We believe Gartner’s recognition of Qumulo validates our vision and our ability to execute against it.”
In the Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage report issued recently, Gartner analysts Julia Palmer, Jerry Rozeman, Robert Preston, Chandra Mukhyala, and Jeff Vogel noted that “IT leaders are looking to deliver cost-effective, scalable and flexible storage platforms for growing amounts of unstructured data.”
Organizations select Qumulo to help them accomplish their strategic roadmap goals. Qumulo is a software-defined file system developed to offer flexibility and designed to run in small offices on the edge, in the data center, and natively on the public cloud infrastructure.

As recently stated in Gartner’s 2020 Strategic Roadmap for Storage (2), “By 2024,
- Large enterprises will triple their unstructured data stored as file or object storage on-premises, at the edge or in the public cloud, compared to 2020.
- 50% of the global storage capacity will be deployed as software-defined storage (SDS) on-premises or on the public cloud, up from less than 15% in 2020.
- More than 30% of enterprise storage capacity will be remotely managed outside of enterprise data centers, up from less than 5% in 2020.”
