Growth and variety of data creates management complexity

1000s of cameras and feeds

Continuous video feeds of varying quality on legacy systems result in data or quality loss.

Storage sprawl & management silos

Legacy systems scale rigidly and make it hard to predict capacity needs.

“The safety and security of our guests and employees is a top priority for us and Qumulo’s technology has certainly helped us enhance those efforts. Though this sort of deployment may not be something people see, it allows us the capacity and capability to be more effective & efficient in our workflow.”

– Jim Mercurio, Executive VP & General Manager of Levi’s Stadium

“Moving from no analytics on the legacy systems to rich analytics on Qumulo has been a game-changer. All the events, file copies, moves, and creates were hard-to-impossible to see before. Now that we have that kind of information available to us, we are able to improve our day-to-day operations and better plan for the future.”

– David Emery, Supervising Systems Administrator, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department

“It’s important that we have a storage system that is always available. Because if the storage system is down, we lose video recording. Which means something might not be recorded that should have been – that’s a big issue for us. It was key that if there were to be a disk or node failure, that the system could still receive video data from the video surveillance system, versus not being available to receive data.”

– Jared Ganske, Network and Infrastructure Manager, Weber School District
