Scale-Out Storage for the Modern Era - An Intro to Qumulo Core
Yesterday’s legacy storage solutions are riddled with fatal flaws that make them inherently unsuitable for today’s business demands.
In 2015 when Qumulo Core was being designed, we interviewed 600+ storage experts—architects, engineers, and administrators, to hear about their current challenges storing files at scale. What they really wanted was basically the same thing they’ve had before—reliable, scalable, easy-to-use storage that was cost-effective, and built for the modern era. Their demands became our product roadmap.
Watch this webinar and learn how Qumulo Core:
> Was created by the best file system engineering team in the world
> Is software-defined, built for on-premises and the cloud
> Is proven in hundreds of mission-critical environments, some with tens of billions of files and petabytes of data
> Has significant market traction—from top global film animation studios, to Fortune 500 telcos, to early-stage software startups.

Ben Gitenstein - Vice President of Product, Qumulo
Many storage vendors focus on what’s easiest to characterize in a system when they give you a quote, which is typically raw storage capacity. But raw capacity, as quoted by most storage vendor, does not tell you how much space you’ll actually have for your users’ files.
Join us on April 5th, as Ben Gitenstein, Vice President of Product Management at Qumulo, gives you four questions that will get you the best possible quote for your next storage array. We will discuss:
- Raw vs usable capacity
- The costs of power and cooling
- Time spent managing storage
- Potential storage downtime

With analysts predicting that 80% of primary workflows will be in the cloud by 2020, now is the time to start making plans for a cloud strategy that supports your data intensive file based workloads. Because of this, Strategic Integrators and Qumulo will be introducing the Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), a modern, scalable, and high performance file-storage system that spans the data center and the public cloud.
Data growth is happening across all industries, and is driving demand to run file-based workloads in the cloud. However, cloud-only file systems don’t connect with other data footprints and lack important enterprise features.
So what can companies looking to expand their most demanding workloads to the cloud do?
Learn how Qumulo File Fabric (QF2) on AWS provides companies a way to scale storage capacity and performance in a single file system that spans their data center and public cloud.
- Why you should be considering the cloud for file storage
- How QF2 on AWS is designed to handle the most data-intensive workloads no matter where the datasets are located

Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato & Jeff Byrne with Qumulo Senior Product Manager Justin Mahood
In over 400 interviews with IT decision makers, the Taneja Group learned that an increasing number of organizations want not just to store files in the cloud, but to easily move those files between the cloud and on-premise.
In response, the Taneja Group has identified an emerging set of storage products they call “multi-cloud primary storage” that can span multiple environments. One of the vendors at the forefront of this trend is Qumulo, whose “universal-scale storage” product, Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), allows cloud instances and computing nodes on standard hardware to work together to form a single, unified file fabric.
Join Taneja Group Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne as they discusses the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage report. They will be joined by Qumulo employee Justin Mahood, who will describe why the “universal-scale” of QF2 is the best way to store files in the cloud and on-premise.

Across industries, enterprises with data-intensive workloads are being challenged by the explosion of file-based data and the cost of storing and effectively accessing that data at petabyte scale
Yet when you look at the storage technologies that enterprise orgs rely on today for file-based storage, most were built 20 years ago. NetApp, still a market leader, started in 1994. Open Source file systems -- GPFS, Lustre, and Sun were all created before the year 2000. In fact, the most modern scale-out file system in the world right now is Isilon OneFS, and that product was built in 2002. Qumulo Core was introduced in 2015, and we built it specifically to address the fatal flaws of legacy file storage products.
Watch and learn about the benefits that enterprise customers like DreamWorks Animation are experiencing running Qumulo Core software on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Apollo servers — they’re managing their massive and rapidly growing unstructured data footprint with maximum storage efficiency using the low cost, enterprise-grade solution provided by Qumulo and HPE.

Workflows in life sciences and bioinformatics are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data that is pipelined into downstream processes for analysis. With today’s sequencer technology, most experts agree that about 100 GB of data is generated for each human genome that is sequenced.
With the Earth’s population predicted to eclipse 8 billion people by 2025, some researchers believe that Life Sciences and Genomics in particular will soon become the single largest producer of new data across all media types — outpacing today’s leaders like YouTube, Twitter, and astronomical research.
Legacy file storage fails to provide researchers with acceptable performance and cost effectiveness at petabyte scale, especially with the wide mix of file sizes that characterizes modern research workflows.
But it’s not all bad news.

What’s in a number? Well, when that number is 10 billion, I’d say it can mean quite a lot.
For some, 10 billion represents:
- The number of photos posted on Facebook (by 2008)
- The number of song downloads from Apple iTunes (by 2010)
- The number of Tweets issued by Twitter (by 2010)
- The number of times Shazam was used to tag songs (by 2013)
- The number of monthly emails being sent by MailChimp (by 2014)
- The number of monthly music video views on VEVO (by 2015)
- The number of quarterly streaming hours of content on Netflix (by 2015)
For Qumulo, we like to demonstrate how and why our customers create and manage 10+ billion files (in 1.2 million directories) in a single scale-out file system.
Join David Bailey, Qumulo’s Director of Systems Engineering, for this demo, and see why customers call Qumulo Core scale-out storage “the smartest storage product ever built.”
