Object-file system combo rapidly expands

Object-based storage adoption took longer than expected, so object vendors have added file systems to their products to make them look more familiar to users.

Amazon Simple Storage Service spurs on-premises storage

Amazon S3 has been such a smashing success that it will likely become the third pillar -- after block and file -- of storage protocols.

Qumulo File Fabric extends high-performance file services to the cloud

The timing for Qumulo to extend its software-defined scalable file services to the cloud could not be better as public cloud utilization continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. Infrastructure spending on the public and private cloud is growing at double-digit rates while spending on traditional, non-cloud, IT infrastructure continues to decline and within a few short years will represent less than 50% of the entire infrastructure market. This trend is not surprising and has been widely predicted for several years. The surprising element now is how strong the momentum has become toward public cloud adoption, and the question is where the long-term equilibrium point will be between public clouds and on-premises infrastructure.

AWS was a pioneer in public cloud storage services when it introduced S3 (Simple Storage Service) over ten years ago. The approach of public cloud vendors has been to offer storage services at cut-rate pricing in what we call the “Hotel California” strategy – once they have your data, it can never leave. Recently, we have been hearing increased grumbling from customers that they are very concerned about losing the option to change infrastructure vendors and the resulting reduction in competition. In response to this, Taneja Group initiated multiple public and hybrid cloud research studies to gain insight on what storage services are needed across heterogenous cloud infrastructures. What we found is that IT practitioners are not only concerned about data security in the cloud; they are concerned about vendor lock-in created by the lack of data mobility between on-premises and public cloud infrastructures. Another surprising element we found is that IT practitioners predominately want file services across clouds and that object storage such as AWS S3 cannot meet their future cloud storage needs. This is actually not that surprising, as our research showed that many applications that businesses want to move to the cloud (to benefit from a highly dynamic compute environment) still rely on high-performance files access.

Enter Qumulo File Fabric (QF2). QF2 is a modern, highly scalable file storage system that runs in the data center and now in the public cloud. Unlike legacy scale-out NAS products, QF2 provides capacity for billions of files, closely matching the scale that could only previously be achieved with object storage solutions, but with the benefit of supporting file access protocols. Qumulo’s modern SDS, flash-first approach allows it to provide a very high-performance file storage system that can cover a wide variety of workloads. Its built-in, real-time analytics let administrators easily manage data no matter how large the footprint or where it is globally located. Continuous replication enables data to move where and when it’s required depending on business need. Qumulo refers to this unmatched file scalability and performance as universal-scale file storage.

Qumulo, founded in 2012, is rapidly growing its market presence and we recently validated their very high customer satisfaction and product capability through an extensive interview process with several customers. Qumulo recently extended their go-to-market ecosystem support through a partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Now with the launch of QF2 and support for  AWS, we expect Qumulo to continue its rapid rise as a leading provider of file services with universal scale. They are also well positioned to capture a significant share of the emerging multi-cloud storage market. We found many companies still prefer file access and there are plenty of reasons why scalable file will continue to grow and compete effectively versus object storage centric architectures.
