New Partnerships and Distribution Channels Make it Easy for Organizations to Move to Modern File Storage
Qumulo software available through:
- HPE GreenLake
- Arrow Electronics
- Global Distribution
SEATTLE – Feb. 26, 2020 – Qumulo, the leader in enterprise-proven hybrid cloud file storage, today announced that the company has expanded the availability of its acclaimed hybrid file software with new global partnerships and distribution channels. Qumulo’s extended partner network now includes Fujitsu, Global Distribution, and Arrow Electronics, as well as the expanded reach of the highly successful HPE partnership.
“A broad commercial ecosystem enables our customers to move away from outdated legacy architectures while continuing to purchase from trusted partners with whom they have built long-standing relationships,” said Gregg Machon, channel chief, Qumulo. “We are rapidly adding partners so that our customers around the world can enjoy the benefits of Qumulo’s solutions and maintain their enterprise- and industry-specific partner arrangements.”
Qumulo sells one hundred percent of its software through channel partners. The company’s massive global expansion and robust partner network allow its customers to purchase the storage technologies they need through a wide range of value-added resellers (VARs), distributors, specialized integrators, and technology alliance partners, or through flexible consumption models that simplify multi-cloud operations.
With unstructured data volumes set to triple1 and adoption of cloud technologies accelerating, businesses need scalable and secure file solutions that can enable applications and users on any operating systems, wherever they reside – at the edge, in the data center, and in the cloud.
