Cloud Storage Innovation of the Year
Qumulo Shift for Amazon S3 is the first-ever native cloud service that enables organizations to consolidate and manage their unstructured file data no matter where it resides. Qumulo Shift copies and moves file data from any Qumulo on-prem or public cloud file system into Amazon S3. Qumulo transforms file data to object in an open and non-proprietary format making it directly accessible to the thousands of cloud-native applications and services designed for Amazon S3. This architecture provides users with complete enterprise file system capabilities and performance coupled with the scale, flexibility and power of the S3 environment. This capability represents both a technology and business model innovation, providing users the freedom, choice and flexibility to use their data where it is most strategic, without adding cost or additional integration.
To date, enterprises have been unable to easily move their critical file data to the cloud, stranding their data from the applications and services they need to use. Complicating cloud adoption even further, these organizations have been forced to completely re-architect their application workflows in order to utilize data in the cloud. Traditional legacy file systems are limited in their ability to help customers leverage the cloud, causing expensive and time-consuming application refactoring and forcing users into proprietary data formats. With Qumulo Shift for Amazon S3, organizations can now take full advantage of their valuable and growing file data and create faster business outcomes leveraging the cloud. Users can migrate and store data from thousands of sources to Amazon S3, making it easier for that data to natively interact with AWS services such as Amazon Sagemaker, AWS IoT Greengrass, and more.
