Qumulo: Data-Aware Scale-Out NAS

CEO: Peter Godman

Seattle-based Qumulo came out of stealth in March with a solution for data-aware scale-out NAS. Qumulo -- whose founding team includes some of the top folks behind Isilon, the scale-out NAS vendor acquired by EMC in 2010 -- has already received $67 million. The company develops software that can be deployed on commodity servers to deliver information on millions of files stored in file format.

Qumulo's claim to fame is the data awareness its technology offers. Qumulo's file system has an integrated database that provides the ability to answer questions about what is stored without needing to scan the data for metadata that must be separately stored and managed.
