​Qumulo Introduces Hybrid Storage Platform

The C-72T is claimed to deliver 200 percent increase in read performance over previous entry-level nodes, and a 300 percent increase in storage density over previous high-performance hybrid node. It also debuts automated Cross-Protocol Permissions.

“For too long, file customers have been forced to choose between capacity versus entry point, performance versus price, or scale versus incremental cost. Qumulo believes customers shouldn’t have to make those choices,” said Molly Presley, director of product marketing.

The C-72T enables customers to start at less than 200TB of capacity and scales to beyond 3PB affordably in 1U, linearly scalable increments. “Many other solutions often require organisations to select a very large hardware configuration in order to be economical, or choose a small solution that doesn’t scale,” said Presley.

The company’s software has been boosted to a 2x increase in performance, it said.

Qumulo announced automated Cross-Protocol Permissions (XPP) capabilities which allow teams to work across computing platforms and networking protocols. System administrators can now allow users on Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms to safely collaborate without requiring the system admin to create elaborate permissions safeguards and inheritance schemes.

XPP lets users access and collaborate on the same sets of files over Server Message Block (SMB) and Network File System (NFS) protocols without concern over permissions compatibility.

Previously, system admins would be required to segment users by protocol or set up elaborate permissions inheritance schemes to prevent users from inadvertently breaking file permissions and locking others out.

“With XPP, admins can spend less time managing, troubleshooting, and repairing permissions issues, and can confidently allow cross-protocol workgroups to collaborate across the Qumulo file system,” Presley said.

In response to customer demand for S3 protocol support, Qumulo has announced a certified solution with MinIO for its Minio open source object storage server. This solution will enable customers to run both file and object workloads from the same storage infrastructure.
