A new press release states, “Qumulo today announced Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), the world’s first universal-scale file storage system. QF2 is a modern, highly scalable file storage system, creating a single file domain that spans the data center and the cloud. For the first time, enterprise customers have the freedom to store, manage and access their file-based data in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale. Hundreds of customers, including FuseFX, Hyundai Mobis, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, and Sinclair Oil Corporation, have adopted QF2 for mission-critical file-based workloads. Qumulo also launched QF2 on Amazon Web Services (AWS), available immediately.”

Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo, noted, “Data is the digital currency of the global economy, yet much of it is effectively stuffed under the mattress in legacy storage systems… For several years, Qumulo has been serving the needs of the world’s largest companies to deploy mission-critical workflows with breakthrough innovation – focused on data instead of hardware – and a rich partner ecosystem. Customers have been clamoring for a solution that allows them to unlock the value of their data anywhere by flexibly scaling file storage across geographies, the cloud and in the data center. With QF2, they finally have it.”

The release goes on, “A global operating model for businesses has created new requirements for scale. These include the number of files stored, the ability to manage enormous data footprints in real time, the global distribution of data, and the need to take advantage of the cloud. These modern requirements require an entirely new class of storage solution.”
