Qumulo Expands Cloud Q Offering with Qumulo on Azure as a ServiceJuly 7, 2021
Qumulo announced the public launch of Qumulo on Azure as a Service (QaaS), a petabyte-scale file data management platform in the cloud delivered with the simplicity of a managed service. Customers can now set up a petabyte-scale file data lake for data-intensive workloads such as video editorial, medical imaging, and AI driven analytics with the simplicity and flexibility of the Qumulo platform, combined with the scale and power of Microsoft Azure’s cloud resources.
“Qumulo on Azure as a Service eliminates the trade-offs customers face in building at scale file based workloads in the cloud. Azure customers can now easily build file data applications with a scalable, enterprise-class and secure platform offered as a fully managed cloud native service,” said Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. “With Qumulo’s availability on Microsoft Azure, we can offer ultimate flexibility to run anywhere our customers want and with no need to manage hardware, software upgrades or complicated systems at scale.”
Qumulo on Azure can scale to multiple petabytes in a single namespace, enabling high capacity compute workloads across any Windows, Mac, or Linux device. The new service also makes it simple to migrate petabytes of data quickly and build limitless file data lakes without rewriting or refactoring applications. To give customers even more freedom, Qumulo’s native replication makes it easy for customers to move data from the cloud to on-prem, and the edge at no cost. The service also allows customers to easily move their data across private and public clouds, an increasingly critical business need as the volume of unstructured data outpaces organizations’ capacity to manage it.
“We appreciate Qumulo’s ability to serve as a platform to manage millions of files that are at the core of our business,” Sundhar Rajan, CIO of Casepoint, a leading legal discovery platform for litigation, investigations, and compliance. “Qumulo’s performance and scalability on Azure makes it possible for us to focus on enabling business workflows while taking advantage of cloud technology. With Qumulo we are equipped with the freedom, speed and performance we need to rapidly innovate and transform our data into business value in any environment.”
“Bringing Qumulo to Microsoft Azure is a valuable addition for customers who want to leverage the cloud to handle their massively growing unstructured datasets where traditional file protocols are needed,” said Jurgen Willis, Vice President, Azure Storage. “By combining the scalability and simplicity of the Qumulo platform with the capabilities and on-demand scale of Azure’s global infrastructure and ecosystem, organizations gain another option to support today’s demanding data workloads.”
Qumulo on Azure is now publicly accessible in the Azure Marketplace and is offered in a simple pay-per-use model.
