November 2023 by Marc Jacob
Qumulo announced its latest version of Azure Native Qumulo as part of Qumulo’s Scale AnywhereTM platform for the hybrid enterprise; a software solution that scales to exabytes anywhere unstructured data is needed. Qumulo’s native cloud service, Azure Native Qumulo (ANQ), developed with Microsoft, is designed to break the trade-offs customers face between scale, economics, performance and features for file services in the public cloud.
ANQ is part of Qumulo’s Scale AnywhereTM platform for the hybrid enterprise, and a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage. ANQ provides a fully-featured, enterprise-grade cloud-native file services solution that offers:
• AI-driven performance. 99% of I/O operations are served from the cache, improving performance and shielding file workloads from cloud object storage latencies.
• True cloud-simplicity. ANQ’s rapid deployment gets customers running in just 12 minutes.
• Cloud-scale. ANQ separates performance from long-term storage retention, allowing each layer to scale independently, elastically, and seamlessly. Furthermore, ANQ lets customers dynamically raise and lower their cluster’s throughput rates on demand, as needed.
• Cloud-reliability. ANQ leverages Azure’s 12 9’s of data durability and its clustered architecture so files are always within reach.
ANQ offers cloud-native file storage services at 80% less expensive than comparable services (including the cloud vendors). Customers don’t have to worry about raw vs. usable capacity. ANQ presents a cloud-familiar pay-as-you-go model in its pricing structure, where economics improve as data volume grows.
Monthly pay-as-you-go pricing is as low as $30 per TB per month (for 1PB and beyond). Pricing starts at just $37 per TB per month (baseline commitment of 100TB), with an incremental charge per TB as data grows.
