Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service provides transparent and secure data storage

The amount of data created and consumed is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade. This proliferation has radically changed enterprise data storage requirements. Enterprises today are looking for storage solutions with unlimited capacity and performance scaling capabilities alongside their fundamental data security and availability requirements.

Azure cloud services have been the backbone of enterprises in their digital transformation journey. With Azure cloud services, businesses can reduce storage costs and gain access to high availability storage products with disaster recovery capabilities. We are happy to announce that the storage suite of Azure products has grown with the addition of Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service. You can subscribe to this service via Azure Marketplace.

Qumulo is the industry leader in distributed file system and object storage. Qumulo provides a highly scalable, high-performance, and easy-to-use cloud-native file system that supports a wide variety of data workloads through standard protocols (NFS, SMB, FTP, and S3). Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service provides seamless integration between Qumulo and Azure and enables Qumulo’s distributed file system as a native service on Azure.

“Our commitment to delivering simplicity at scale begins with our customers’ initial deployment and onboarding experience. The availability of Azure Native Qumulo scalable file service directly from the Azure portal creates a more streamlined provisioning process for customers looking to store and manage unstructured data in the cloud at scale. » —Kiran Bhageshpur, Technical Director of Qumulo



Native integration means customers can deploy Qumulo in less than 15 minutes. Customers no longer need to configure virtual network peering to connect to Qumulo. In fact, with this integration, virtual network peering charges have been eliminated, as Qumulo is connected via private access to the customer’s chosen virtual network. Data is stored and processed by the service in the same region as the virtual network, and customers can easily leverage their own network policies with Qumulo’s enterprise-scale file system.

Azure Native Qumulo Scalable File Service provides the following key features:

  1. Seamless integration: Easily integrate and use Qumulo as an integrated service natively on Azure.


  2. Unified billing: Get a single bill for all the resources you consume on Azure, including the Qumulo service.
  3. Private virtual network access—The service is directly connected to your virtual network and provides access to a fully managed Qumulo Scalable File service from the virtual network of your choice.
