Hybrid cloud file storage provider, Qumulo, has expanded the availability of its hybrid file software with new global partnerships and distribution channels. Qumulo’s extended partner and distribution network now includes Fujitsu, Global Distribution, and Arrow Electronics, as well as an expanded reach of its HPE partnership.
Qumulo sells one hundred percent of its software through channel partners. The company’s global expansion and “robust” partner network would allow its customers to purchase the storage technologies they need through a wide range of value-added resellers (VARs), distributors, specialized systems integrators, and technology alliance partners, or through flexible consumption models that can simplify multi-cloud operations.
“A broad commercial ecosystem enables our customers to move away from outdated legacy architectures while continuing to purchase from trusted partners with whom they have built long-standing relationships,” said Gregg Machon, Channel Chief, Qumulo. “We are rapidly adding partners so that our customers around the world can enjoy the benefits of Qumulo’s solutions and maintain their enterprise- and industry-specific partner arrangements.”
HPE GreenLake Incorporates Qumulo Hybrid Cloud File Software
HPE and Qumulo have enjoyed a “successful” partnership offering modern scale-out NAS appliances since the inception of their collaboration in 2017. The two organizations are now extending their offering to HPE GreenLake. HPE GreenLake delivers an as-a-Service portfolio that would provide flexibility and speed to market with cloud-like agility and economics but also on-premises control.
“The cloud experience has shaped what business leaders expect from IT, including simplicity, agility and lower costs,” said Erik Vogel, Global Vice President Customer Experience, HPE GreenLake. “HPE GreenLake gives customers pay-per-use, managed IT-as-a-Service offerings that provide them with a consistent cloud experience for managing all their workloads. Qumulo’s hybrid cloud file storage platform is a great fit with HPE GreenLake as it enables users to start with the capacity they need and grow based on business demand.”
