Qumulo File Fabric is software for creating a Network Attached Storage system that can scale with a number of nodes in a distributed cluster while maintaining a single namespace. Scaling on the order of hundreds of nodes allows Qumulo to support billions of files and virtually unlimited capacity. The Qumulo software is also offered as an appliance with servers and storage by Qumulo in specific configurations and is also offered by vendor partners such as Fujitsu or HPE with their Apollo servers and storage.

The distributed architecture allows Qumulo to scale very large and to support the high performance possible with addition of multiple nodes. Qumulo has implemented a system of scalable file directories and distribution of data across devices. The data distribution and method for accessing metadata are key developments for the NAS system. For high availability, Qumulo uses a continuous replication between clusters of nodes that could be geographically dispersed or in a public cloud.

High performance uses are the target customers for Qumulo. Primary competitors will include Dell EMC Isilon, Scale-out file system WekaIO, and more traditional scale-out NAS systems such as NetApp.
