Qumulo unveils suite of file data management services
Qumulo, a leading file data platform, is introducing a new suite of data services that simplify the management of massive amounts of file data.
Qumulo unveiled two new data services, Qumulo Secure and Qumulo Dynamic Scale, and introduced advancements including Instant Software Upgrade to Qumulo Core, an NVMe Cached Performance and Qumulo Shift's new visual interface.
"Radical simplicity is critical for customers to be successful with unstructured data. Our software-driven file data platform offers enterprise-level capabilities that radically simplify the process of today's digital transformation," said Ben Gitenstein, VP of product, Qumulo. "With the data services we announced today, Qumulo's customers can simplify the complexity of their infrastructure, accelerate innovation, and unleash the power of their data, wherever it resides."
Qumulo software provides machine learning optimized read and write cache leveraging NVMe, enabling the intelligent cache to manage data on the optimal storage media to get both high performance and cost-effective capacity.
With the introduction of the latest release of Qumulo Core software and two new qualified hardware options (C-192T and C-432T), Qumulo now offers NVMe performance at the price of disk.
The introduction of Qumulo Dynamic Scale enables administrators to leverage newly qualified platforms with the latest processors, memory and storage devices without the need for forklift upgrades, data migrations, or complex storage pool management.
Qumulo users now can add new qualified platforms into existing environments with no need to manage different storage pools or perform a data migration.
The new platforms are simply added to the existing environment, data is automatically redistributed, and the increased performance and capacity are automatically made available to users and applications.
To help make data encryption easy and cost effective, Qumulo is introducing AES 256-bit software encryption at-rest as part of the Qumulo Secure set of data services.
For new deployments, Qumulo now encrypts all data, automatically. No additional third-party applications or key managers are needed, and there is no added cost. Encryption now comes standard, as do all Qumulo features as part of the standard software subscription.
Qumulo Secure provides a wide range of security features, including role-based authentication (RBAC), audit, and encryption in-flight. And with this announcement, the Qumulo software will now encrypt all data automatically, on any deployment type, at no additional cost.
Data is typically created in a file format, but applications and developers often want to leverage capabilities and services connected to cloud object stores such as AWS S3.
Qumulo Shift makes it simple to copy data from a file solution into Amazon S3. The new visual interface makes it even easier to leverage data in the location and format that makes innovation fastest.
When data needs to be transformed from file to object, customers can simply select their choice Amazon S3 target buckets and initiate a data copy with the click of a button.
With Qumulo Shift, customers can:
- Leverage legacy and cloud-native applications without having to re-build their architecture
- Retain S3-native and file-native properties to maintain full data control and ownership
- Avoid having to refactor applications or use third-party data movement packages
The simplicity of Qumulo's file data platform makes it easy and affordable for organizations to leverage the value of massive data sets distributed across on-prem and multi-clouds and ensures visibility into the data with uncompromising security and data protection.
