With this new partnership, Qumulo Core is available on HPE Apollo servers, offering flexibility for enterprise customers that want next-generation scale-out file and object storage software on-premises or private cloud workloads. Built for the highest levels of performance, capacity and efficiency, Qumulo Core on HPE Apollo servers is a future-proof solution for storing and managing hundreds of petabytes and tens of billions of files and objects, providing complete data-awareness of data footprint at extreme scale.

Qumulo Core available on HPE Apollo servers extends flexibility for customers adding a 2U option alongside Qumulo’s QC-Series 1U and 4U commodity hardware appliances.
