UConn Health Center Chooses Qumulo Core Data-Aware Scale-Out NAS for High-Performance Computing Infrastructure

Qumulo, pioneer of the world’s first data-aware scale-out NAS, today announced that UConn Health has chosen Qumulo Core for high-performance computing infrastructure to support life sciences research. Qumulo also announced its presence at the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, taking place April 21-23 in Boston. The company is exhibiting and demonstrating its Qumulo Core software at booth number #132. In addition, Peter Godman, co-founder and CEO of Qumulo, will present and chair a track on IT infrastructure in life sciences on Thursday, April 23, beginning at 10:30am ET.

Qumulo Core is designed for the rapidly growing storage performance, capacity, and data visibility needs faced by organizations engaged in life sciences research. UConn Health has selected Qumulo as they design and build out their large scale high-performance computing datacenter, which is used for a wide range of life science research, including genomics, personalized medicine, complex systems modeling, and big data.

“UConn Health has high performance and high capacity needs to support the exponential growth of our life sciences data – and we were looking for a more intelligent, scalable and cost effective NAS solution for the long term,” said Ion Moraru, associate professor of cell biology and director of the high performance computing facility for UConn Health. “We were impressed with Qumulo’s flash-first hybrid design for performance and the real-time analytics that enable us to understand our data footprint and performance by user, application, and project across a single large shared storage resource.”

“We are thrilled to be working closely with UConn Health as a thought leader and customer in life sciences,” said Peter Godman, co-founder and CEO of Qumulo. “Technology advances in DNA sequencing and other research are creating data at an unprecedented rate, and next generation scale-out storage provides instant insight into data at scale, abstracts away the underlying infrastructure, and achieves breakthrough price/performance using intelligent software on commodity hardware.”

Qumulo Core builds real-time data analytics directly into storage, giving enterprises an unprecedented view of their data and storage resources at scale. Key benefits of Qumulo Core include:

  • Real-time analytics – Qumulo Core doesn’t just store data, but also curates and manages it.
  • Software-only solution – Qumulo Core runs on commodity hardware, on dedicated appliances, or in virtual machines.
  • Flash-first hybrid design – Maximizes both price/performance and price/capacity.
  • SaaS software delivery model – Pay-as-you-go for continual infrastructure software innovation.
  • No compromise storage – Optimized for the widest range of workloads and file sizes.
  • 100% programmable – Public and self-documenting REST API with interactive API explorer built into the web UI.
