Qumulo Expands Global Presence to Asia Pacific, Strategic Partnership With HPE

Driven by increased demand in Australia, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore, Qumulo also announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to deliver simplicity and performance to customers across the region including the People’s Majlis, Republic of Maldives.

“The Qumulo and HPE Solution has provided us the ability to seamlessly record live video streaming of our Parliament sessions. With its scale-out architecture, we do not have to worry if we run out of capacity,” said Ibrahim Yashau, CIO of the People’s Majlis, Republic of Maldives. “And thanks to Qumulo and InfoSight Management these tools help us to have real-time insights for both our data and hardware.”

The investment comes less than nine months after Qumulo announced its Series E round of funding, during which the company noted its plan to dedicate a portion of funds toward expanding its global operations. The expansion to APAC builds on the increasing demand for the Qumulo® File Data Platform in each of these countries from customers across major verticals, including healthcare, industrial manufacturing, automotive manufacturing, government, media and entertainment, and research computing.

“Our decision to expand to the Asia Pacific region was in response to strong demand from customers that are quickly building applications that generate enormous amounts of unstructured data to meet the needs of their businesses,” said Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. “Together with HPE, Qumulo is rapidly transforming the way customers manage their file data at scale by offering them a radically simple way to modernize their infrastructure through the power of software and the cloud.”

Qumulo and HPE have a long-standing and successful global partnership. Since 2017, the two organizations have worked together to offer the world’s leading file data platform to more than 100 countries worldwide. Today, HPE and Qumulo are further expanding their partnership to provide organizations in APAC unmatched file data management simplicity by combining Qumulo’s NVMe-optimized data platform software with the powerful innovation in HPE Proliant servers. Together, Qumulo and HPE are uniquely able to deliver a simpler way to deploy files at scale, with unmatched performance and security. Customers in APAC can now benefit from the latest data services in the Qumulo File Data Platform and the performance of NVMe leveraged in the latest technologies of the HPE DL325 Gen10 Plus.

“Our relationship with Qumulo allows for creative innovation and advanced modernization for IT infrastructure on a global scale,” said Joseph Yang, General Manager, Storage Sales Asia Pacific at HPE. “We are thrilled to be on the journey to take both of our organizations’ capabilities further within the APAC region through simplified file data deployment.”
