SEATTLE, June 1, 2023 — Qumulo has announced new capabilities that eliminate the pain of data migration during hardware refreshes and boost customers’ storage efficiency as their clusters grow. While new storage technology is continuously being made available, the burden of migration often discourages customers from taking advantage of the latest and greatest innovations.
Qumulo’s new Transparent Platform Refresh (TPR) feature lets customers effortlessly swap old appliances for new ones with no disruption to their end users and without having to undergo a time-consuming and expensive migration. The company’s new Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) feature enables customers to adjust their data protection configurations as their clusters grow, often reclaiming hundreds of terabytes of usable space as a result and optimizing their storage investment as IT budgets tighten.
On top of more efficient scaling and seamless hardware refreshes, Qumulo now runs on the highly-performant, HPE Alletra 4110 data storage server, helping customers address rapidly growing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) use cases and other performance-intensive workloads. As customers become more data-driven, performance requirements become more important— balancing speed, efficiency, security, and flexibility in the simplest way possible. With Qumulo on the HPE Alletra 4110 data storage server, customers can gain more insight from their data without the performance challenges and management overhead that often comes with general-purpose storage solutions.
“Many organizations are facing economic uncertainty and the flexibility to adjust their storage needs responsively is crucial,” said Ryan Farris, Vice President of Product, Qumulo. “With more platform options and capabilities to boost efficiency and simplify refreshes at scale, our customers can ensure their end-users and workloads are fully supported even in a turbulent macroeconomic environment.”
The HPE Alletra 4110 data storage server is the first product Qumulo has certified that leverages Enterprise and Data Center Standard Form Factor (EDSFF). As the latest NVMe form-factor it boasts significant space and thermal efficiency advantages. This helps customers optimize their data center footprint and future-proof their storage investment while supporting the needs of today’s high-performance workloads.
Qumulo’s ADP functionality is beneficial for customers who want to start small and grow their clusters incrementally, maximizing efficiency as they scale without having to overprovision during initial deployment. Qumulo’s TPR feature also allows customers to swap nodes with newer hardware or improved performance classes either individually, or all at once, enabling more agility and flexibility to adapt to rapidly changing storage demands.
