University of Florida Accelerates BioTech Research with Qumulo

The University of Florida has chosen Qumulo’s distributed file system for its scalable capacity, real-time data analytics, and industry-recognized commitment to customer care. “We wanted a storage solution that would not only work for UF’s faculty but work for our research computing staff as well,” said Erik Deumens, scientist and director, UF Information Technology – Research Computing. “Selecting Qumulo takes the guesswork out of our storage management and makes us more efficient when scheduling diagnostic operations. We find the Qumulo system to be rich in features and easy to work with. It is a very cost-effective solution so that we are making the best use of university funds.”

Video: Storage Architecture for Innovation & Research at the University of Florida

In this video from the DDN booth at SC15, Dr. Erik Deumens of the University of Florida describes why unpredictable and less standard architectures and system configurations are necessary to meet the agility, availability and responsiveness requirements to meet the mission of innovation and exploration. “The University of Florida’s Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) offers access to cutting-edge technologies designed to enable university faculty, staff and students, as well as research and commercial partners worldwide with the tools and resources needed to advance scientific research.”
