SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Qumulo, the simple way to manage exabyte-scale data anywhere, today announced it has built its strategic relationship with Fujitsu to provide customers with more options to deploy their joint solution. Qumulo® is now available on the new NVMe-based hybrid nodes on Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY platform that deliver the performance of flash storage at the price of disk. Qumulo’s file system delivers real-time visibility, scale, and control of data across on-premises and cloud, even at a granular level, allowing easy system configuration and performance management.
“With the expansion of our relationship, our customers in a wide range of industries will benefit from low-threshold access to Qumulo data processing as well as the ability to rapidly sift through billions of files to find the nuggets of true value. The integration on the PRIMERGY RX2540 M7 also provides our channel partners with the opportunity to benefit from our relationship with Qumulo and distribute the solution,” said Christian Leutner, Head of European Platform Business, Fujitsu.
Specifically designed for hybrid environments spanning the data center, private and public clouds, Qumulo makes it possible for users to share information, while supporting multiple storage protocols that enable data consolidation. This allows for easier management of data in hybrid environments and provides the ability to absorb unpredictable, unstructured data growth and cope with data demands from increasing numbers of applications, both on and off the cloud.
“Organizations today cannot be tied to one hardware or public cloud solution to properly manage the type of IT infrastructure required for true success. With this announcement, we are giving companies another compelling way to take advantage of the unprecedented scale and performance Qumulo offers,” said Fabrice Gourlay, Vice President of Sales EMEA, Qumulo. “PRIMERGY RX2540 M7 is the ideal server for business-critical workloads such as AI, machine learning, graphics rendering, and in-memory databases.”
Joint Qumulo and Fujitsu customers include Imelda Hospital in Belgium and Portalliance in France. For Imelda Hospital, providing quality care to thousands of patients a year is possible through the staff’s strong teamwork and training plus utilizing the latest techniques and technology. The hospital offers the most modern medical scanning and imaging technology available, and this generates significant amounts of unstructured data. When the hospital’s storage capacity demands for its Agfa Enterprise Imaging system became a network performance and budgetary concern, they turned to Fujitsu and Qumulo. Imelda also needed a backup copy of the data for cloud disaster recovery reasons, plus an option that prepared them for the cloud.
“We made a huge gain in the speed of our system. We have been able to tune our system, really improve it. The doctors are happy too. Usually you won’t hear a word from a doctor who is satisfied. Since the migration we have received nothing but positive feedback for the gain in speed,” said Kim Buts, IT Systems Team Lead at Imelda Hospital.
The Qumulo file data platform rapidly scales to support tens of billions of files, and the cloud-native file system allows for workloads to be seamlessly transitioned to the public cloud. This means customers can extend short-term computing power beyond their on-premises or hosted capabilities to manage spikes in demand, as well as providing remote collaborators with instant access to data. Businesses can also easily run microservices that leverage cloud data, via APIs enabling application-level access.
