Qumulo Brings Qumulo File Fabric to Yet Another Third Party Server Hardware Platform
Qumulo, Inc. today announced the availability of Qumulo File Fabric (QF2) on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, providing enterprises unprecedented choice and flexibility for storing and managing billions of files. Qumulo extends its award-winning solutions across a variety of partners and platforms, enabling enterprises to become more agile by freeing them from appliance lock-in. Only Qumulo supports the customer's freedom to choose the hardware they run their file storage on while scaling across on-premises and cloud environments.

"The builders of data-centers have long known that there are advantages and disadvantages that accompany standardization on a single hardware platform. On the one hand, it's much easier to manage just one type of hardware. On the other hand, this standardization can mean getting locked into legacy storage technologies," said Peter Godman, co-founder and CTO of Qumulo. "Qumulo's support for Dell brings new choice in scale-out NAS to those who want a low-complexity hardware environment."

QF2 on Dell EMC servers offers utmost flexibility for enterprise customers that want universal-scale file storage on-premises or for private cloud workloads. Built for the highest levels of performance, capacity and efficiency, QF2 combined with the Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd delivers a future-proof solution for storing and managing hundreds of petabytes and tens of billions of files, providing the most scalable, most efficient file storage in the world.

"This is yet another milestone for Qumulo and the entire storage industry, proving the era of choice is here. In the new world of hybrid clouds, software is the path to customer freedom to choose, with Qumulo's storage software platform leading the way," concluded Godman.

Customers can now choose from Qumulo's own branded line storage servers, or from two of the largest server vendors on the planet. No matter what hardware choice for on-premise environments, they can also scale to the public cloud using Qumulo's service in AWS. Customers also benefit from Qumulo's relentless commitment to delivering continuous innovation, performance, and functionality improvements through routine updates.

QF2 is the world's first universal-scale file storage system. It was designed from the ground up to meet all of today's requirements for scale. QF2 is the highest performance file storage system in the data center and the public cloud, and can scale to billions of files. With QF2, customers have the freedom to store, manage and access their file-based data in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale.
