Power your AI workloads everywhere

AI places strenuous demands on storage, something that is holding AI back. In fact, while almost ALL data is unstructured, most data being used for AI is not, and that’s holding the industry back.

More data, more users, more at stake

A breach can cost an organization millions in ransom payments, lost revenue, and remediation costs — not to mention, long term reputational damage.

There are three common storage challenges associated with AI data storage.

Data and AI Ecosystems are disconnected

The data used for AI is generated at the edge or in the data center. Think IoT data coming from factory floors or from self-driving cars. But, the AI ecosystem lives in the cloud (AI services, expert consultations, etc.).

Enterprises must find a way to put that valuable data in proximity to their AI ecosystem in the cloud.

Placing all your AI unstructured data is difficult today

First, it is wildly expensive. Second, any apps that rely on that data need to be re-platformed to work with object data, as that is the only real option in the cloud today. This needs to change for AI to take off.

Legacy solutions throttle AI engines

Modern GPU-based massive parallel thread AI workflows can easily generate tens of thousands of concurrent reads, but many legacy solutions limit concurrent reads to a fraction of that. This throttles model-building.

This needs to be fixed for AI to become highly agile.

How Qumulo enables AI

We built Qumulo to blow up these obstacles. Here’s how . . .

Full-throttle, no excuses, concurrent reads

Qumulo has never placed limits on how many simultaneous reads you can perform. So unleash the hottest new Nvidia GPU tools and models away, free of limits from your file data platform.

Scale Anywhere™ with Qumulo

Qumulo’s Scale Anywhereplatform runs in the edge, core, and cloud. And, since Qumulo is a 100% software-only solution, you can run the hardware of your choice or in the cloud you want. This makes it trivially easy to put your valuable unstructured data in close proximity to your cloud-based AI ecosystem.

Keep your data highly secure

AI often relies on massive datasets, which can sometimes include sensitive information. Data breaches can lead to severe legal, financial, and reputational consequences. Qumulo protects and keeps all your training-bound data with AES 256-bit software-based encryption and immutable snapshots.

Connect Azure Native Qumulo to Microsoft Copilot

Did you know that Microsoft Copilot can connect directly to Azure Native Qumulo to read and analyze your Office files, PDF files, text files, and more? With Qumulo’s custom connectors, you can use Copilot to gain new intelligence and insight into virtually any type of unstructured data in your Azure Native Qumulo environment.

Use Cases

We built Qumulo to blow up these obstacles. Here’s how . . .

Modern Manufacturing

Factory floor cameras placed everywhere capture all manner of information in real-time automated manufacturing operations. All of this is aggregated continuously on local storage. For advanced objectives (e.g., automated failure detection), operations combine data from all manufacturing lines to become the source for training models. As the models mature, they are pushed back down to each factory to optimize operations.

Autonomous Vehicles

Self-driving vehicles continuously capture high-definition, multi-spectrum video of the real world. This begins with hundreds of test vehicles, then thousands of experimental vehicles, and finally with millions of regular vehicles. The cars upload these videos to a central location to train the models to assist drivers, enable autopilot, and make self-driving cars a reality. Inference models derived from the above are pushed back down to production vehicles. Then, the models process real-time data to optimize autonomous driving.

AI-assisted cyber-security

Network SecOps professionals consolidate activity logs from hundreds of thousands of network devices (from cloud, on-premises, or both). This forms the training data set for models to detect unauthorized network intrusions. The resulting inference models are pushed down into modern network devices, which analyze real-time observed events to spot unauthorized intrusions.
