Hybrid cloud file storage specialist Qumulo has expanded its partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, allowing HPE customers to utilise its distributed file system for both on-prem and multi-cloud environments.

The move builds on Qumulo’s existing strategic partnership with the IT giant, which enables customers to purchase complete, validated products directly from HPE and its resellers.

Rising interest from enterprises across various industries provided the catalyst for this expansion, Qumulo said, as businesses look to take advantage of the public cloud for business continuity, global collaboration and multi-cloud objectives.

“No matter where an organisation is in its journey to the cloud, HPE and Qumulo can help users to manage their file-based applications and workloads seamlessly across both data center and cloud environments,” said Molly Presley, director of Product Marketing at Qumulo.

“With today’s extended partnership, Qumulo’s cloud-native file system offers HPE customers the ability to move their data to the public cloud without the need for modifications or costly re-writes,” added the firm’s Gregg Machon, vice president of Worldwide Channels & OEMs.

Qumulo’s hybrid cloud file software will allow HPE customers to gain real-time visibility, scale and control of data on-prem and on public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The solution also enables data replication between different clouds for both migration or multi-copy requirements.

“Data powers innovation, and our goal is to help our global partners to harness the power and potential of their data wherever it resides,” said Patrick Osborne, vice president and general manager of HPE’s Big Data and Secondary Storage division.

“Qumulo provides our global customers with a single file system whether their data is on-prem or in the cloud, enabling them to more efficiently store, manage and analyze their data in order to accelerate business strategies and gain competitive advantage.”
