the leader of hybrid cloud file storage, today announced a significant
expansion of its cloud portfolio, including the introduction of two new
products – Qumulo CloudStudio™ and Qumulo CloudContinuity™ – as well as
support for Qumulo’s cloud-native, distributed hybrid file system on the
Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
According to Allied Market Research, the
global cloud storage market size is estimated to reach more than $97

“File data is the engine of innovation. The faster that innovative
organizations can create, store, analyze and share their data on-prem
and in the public cloud, the faster they can accelerate winning business
strategies,” said Bill Richter, president and CEO of Qumulo.
Today’s announcement includes the following elements:
Google Cloud Platform Support: Qumulo has partnered with
Google to support Qumulo’s hybrid cloud file system on GCP and on the Google
Cloud Platform Marketplace. Enterprises will be able to take
advantage of the elastic compute resources, operational agility, and
advanced services that Google’s public cloud offers.
the addition of the Google Cloud Platform, Qumulo is able to provide
multicloud platform support, making it easy for users to store,
manage, and access their data, workloads and applications in both
Amazon Web Services (AWS) and GCP. Qumulo also enables data
replication between clouds for migration or multi-copy requirements.
Qumulo CloudStudio: Media and entertainment
organizations of any size can scale production into the public cloud
with Qumulo CloudStudio. CloudStudio securely moves traditionally
on-prem workspaces, including desktops, applications, and data, to the
public cloud on both the AWS and GCP platforms.
file storage software is the same on-prem or in the cloud, making the
transition seamless and easy, eliminating the need to reconfigure
applications or retrain users.
For example, CloudStudio
allows creative agencies, post-production studios, broadcasters, and
visual effects studios to more efficiently work on editorial projects
such as creative content development, rendering, and production by
moving the necessary applications and data to the cloud. Studios can
also better leverage resources and talent across time zones, and more
effectively collaborate with globally-dispersed teams with CloudStudio.
can also help in the production of corporate video by allowing
enterprises with in-house studios to leverage the power of the cloud.
These businesses can gain efficiencies and cost savings by moving the
data associated with developing and editing training videos, webinars,
and other content services to the cloud.
One of the key
partners that has been an early supporter of CloudStudio is Teradici,
the creator of PC-over-IP (PCoIP) remoting protocol technology and Cloud
Access Software, newly augmented with PCoIP Ultra™ enhancements
for graphics-intensive applications and content. Teradici and Qumulo
will provide a joint demonstration of Qumulo CloudStudio at the NAB
Show taking place in Las Vegas April 6-11.
Qumulo CloudContinuity: Organizations need to ensure
they have strategies in place for ongoing continuity of operations.
Whether planning for a technology migration to the cloud, preparing
for disaster recovery, or recovering lost files, Qumulo
CloudContinuity makes these efforts easier.
offering enables users to have their data where they need it, when
they need it. Users can automatically replicate their data from an
on-prem Qumulo cluster to a Qumulo instance running in the cloud.
Should a primary on-prem storage system experience a catastrophic
failure, customers can redirect users and applications to the Qumulo
cloud instance where they will have access to all of their data
immediately. Qumulo’s CloudContinuity also enables quick, automated
fail-back to an on-prem cluster in disaster recovery scenarios.

of the Cloud
Many of the world’s most respected organizations across multiple
industries trust Qumulo to help them take advantage of the cloud:
Media and Entertainment: Film and animation studios depend on
Qumulo’s hybrid cloud file storage. Visual effects studio FuseFX uses
Qumulo on AWS for its television comedy program “The Tick,” and other
projects. The flexibility to use the cloud both for large-scale
rendering and for storage helped FuseFX keep their commitments,
accelerate production, and reduce the risk of downtime, which can
occur with on-prem render farms.
Oil and Gas: As innovative organizations in the oil and gas
exploration industry seek to take advantage of the cloud, they are
choosing technology providers in their journey that can serve as true,
customer-focused partners. In February, Qumulo joined
Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe™ (OSDU) Forum to help oil
and gas operators realize the advantages of the cloud.
Corporate Video: Corporate video has become mainstream for
today’s employee education, training, corporate communication,
marketing and advertising campaigns, helping to improve overall
communications and reduce costs. Qumulo’s hybrid cloud file storage
meets the demands of today’s corporate video content production and
storage; providing a modern infrastructure employing flash-first
technology which can handle the toughest 4K workloads, and limitless
scalability to manage growing capacities and retention requirements.
Life Sciences: Organizations that want to move their genomic
analysis workloads or research imaging to the cloud can take advantage
of Qumulo’s multicloud platform support. Qumulo’s file system has the
highest performance of any cloud offering, and is the only file
