The amount of data created and consumed is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade. This proliferation has radically changed enterprise data storage requirements. Today, enterprises are in search of storage solutions with unlimited capacity and performance scaling capabilities alongside their core requirements of data security and availability.
Azure cloud services have been the backbone for enterprises in their digital transformation journey. With Azure cloud services, enterprises can reduce storage costs and have access to high-availability storage products with disaster recovery capabilities. We are happy to announce that the storage suite of Azure products has grown with the addition of Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service. You can subscribe to this service via the Azure marketplace.
Qumulo is the industry leader in Distributed File System and Object Storage. Qumulo provides a highly scalable, highly performant, and simple-to-use cloud-native filesystem that supports a wide variety of data workloads via standard protocols (NFS, SMB, FTP, and S3). Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service provides seamless integration between Qumulo and Azure and enables Qumulo’s distributed file system as a native service on Azure.
“Our commitment to delivering simplicity at scale starts with the initial deployment and onboarding experience of our customers. The availability of the Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service directly from the Azure portal creates a more streamlined procurement process for customers looking to store and manage unstructured data in the cloud at massive scale." —Kiran Bhageshpur, CTO of Qumulo
Native integration means that customers can deploy Qumulo in less than 15 minutes. Customers no longer need to set up virtual network peering to connect to Qumulo. In fact, with this integration, virtual network peering charges have been eliminated, as Qumulo is connected via private access to the customer’s chosen virtual network. The data is stored and processed by the service in the same region as the virtual network and customers can easily leverage their own network policies with Qumulo’s enterprise-scale filesystem.
