According to a recent press release, “Qumulo, the leader in universal-scale file storage, today announced that it has extended Qumulo File Fabric (QF2) into on-premises all-flash instances, providing the highest performance all-flash file storage system on modern industry-standard hardware. Delivering 4GB/s per node, 16GB/s for a minimum four-node cluster, and up to 1.6TB/s of throughput on a 400-node QF2 system, QF2 all-flash storage clusters are designed to serve the highest performance file-based workloads, including large-scale datasets for machine learning applications, genomic sequencing and analysis, high-resolution video editing and scientific computing. QF2 all-flash instances also deliver price performance that exceeds today’s leading all-flash storage systems.”

The release goes on, “Modern enterprises in data intensive industries are achieving breakthroughs that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. The breakthroughs of these next-generation applications and workloads are only possible with the massive computational scale of advanced, highly-distributed software running on modern, standard hardware, both in the data center and in the public cloud. While file-based data serves as the engine of innovation for leading, data-intensive businesses, legacy storage solutions have not kept pace with rapid increases in computational loads and have become a bottleneck. QF2, now including all-flash instances, breaks through the performance frontier, serving as the only file-storage system that can meet these high performance workloads both in the data center and in the public cloud.”
