Qumulo, the breakthrough leader in radically simplifying enterprise unstructured data management across hybrid-cloud environments, today 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 changes the game for any enterprise struggling to manage massive amounts of unstructured data. With Qumulo's availability on Microsoft Azure, the Qumulo platform runs just about anywhere our customers want to be - whether it be in multicloud, hybrid cloud or on-premises environments," said Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. "With the addition of Qumulo on Azure to our cloud portfolio, we can create real business advantages by bringing together the power of the Qumulo File Data Platform and Azure."
Qumulo on Azure can scale beyond 100TB 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 can replicate 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 organisations' 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," said 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 of 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, organisations 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.
