Easy to set up, good technical support, and it provides valuable usage analytics
Pros and Cons
  • "The feature that I like most is the analytics part of the file system."
  • "In the future, I would like to see non-disruptive updates."

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Qumulo is one of the storage products that we implement for our customers. Our customers have many use cases including storing office data, audio-video, graphics, and more. Our customer base is primarily in the media and entertainment business

What is most valuable?

The feature that I like most is the analytics part of the file system. It offers good insight into the process including what and where things are happening, including which users and what files are involved.

They have implemented the most important features and they're steadily enhancing it. The update schedule and roadmap are such that every two weeks, there are new features being released.

What needs improvement?

There is plenty of room for improvement.

In the future, I would like to see non-disruptive updates.

Switching our or replacing nodes should be easier to do.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Qumulo for about two years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our customers for this product are small to mid-sized companies.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have been in touch with technical support and I think that they're very good. They are very responsive and very knowledgeable.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We work with a variety of different products and vendors for storage solutions. We're selling Dell EMC storage, Unity, Isilon, Qumulo, Pure Storage, and more recently, Cloudian.

Compared to Isilon, they have only a subset of the features.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy. The setup of the cluster itself, without the hardware installation, can be done within an hour. As long as somebody has the proper networking skills then it will be easy for them to set it up.

What about the implementation team?

We have our own team of five people who handle the maintenance for our customers.

What other advice do I have?

The mastery of the market in this space comes down to scale and from my perspective, Qumulo and Isilon are the only two products in the market. My preference is Qumulo and I recommend it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Provides helpful real-time analytics, and integrates with AWS and Google Cloud
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is real-time analytics."
  • "The price of the software is a bit expensive, so a reduction in cost would make it more competitive."

What is our primary use case?

We are a reseller and Qumulo is one of the storage solutions that we are dealing with. It is used for software-defined file storage.

I am currently researching more use cases so that we can better sell it in the market.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is real-time analytics. The data that you receive from the storage, such as the IOPS, is an essential feature. This is the main competitive advantage against the other products on the market.

Qumulo can be integrated with AWS or Google Cloud.

What needs improvement?

This product is not available in the Azure marketplace, which is not a good thing.

The price of the software is a bit expensive, so a reduction in cost would make it more competitive.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been reselling Qumulo for approximately one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Qumulo is a stable product. We only have a couple of customers using it, but we plan on continuing to sell it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not had any experience with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

I have not installed it myself, 100%, but I recently went through the training to install the latest version. It seems to me that it should be quite easy. This is the feedback that we have been getting.

I expect that it takes a couple of hours or less to deploy.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it. 

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
