Qumulo, a start-up company offering software that helps build data-aware scale-out storage for managing large storage systems announced version 2.5 of its CORE software. This version offers Snapshots for extended data protection, erasure coding improvements to provide greater storage efficiency, throughput analytics to show how the throughput load is distributed across the file system and intelligent caching of metadata on SSDs for faster metadata operations.

The company also announced that the software will be available on HPE Apollo Servers. Previously the company had offered its software as part of its own hardware and software package. This will allow scale-out file and object storage for on-premise or private cloud networks.

Qumulo’s new partnership with HPE frees their storage management software from their own box, establishes them as a player in file and object storage for on premise and private cloud storage.
