Azure Blob Storage

For cold backups, archive data, and if you need cheap online storage that will not be regularly accessed. Also very good for streaming videos or audio files, for example, if you have an online education portal, you can store all the video files in Blob storage and then just load them on your website. The same applies for storing website content, pdfs, etc.

Qumulo

Qumulo is great for media and entertainment companies, that need simple and easy management of a NAS. The product can also scale and be sized to larger shops too. The support that comes with it also can act as an extension of internal IT. Their support is always watching the box when it phones home with hardware errors or if it would go offline. Qumulo is not initially set up well-running virtual workloads, while Vmware supports NFS, some settings need to be adjusted on Qumulo to allow for upgrades to happen while virtual machines are running

Pros

Azure Blob Storage

  • Reduced cost. We were able to reduce our storage infrastructure by several hundred terabytes by consolidating redundant copies and dedupe/compression on files.
  • Extremely high level of redundancy. We can replicate data in a variety of ways that we would never have been capable of on our own hardware.

Qumulo

  • Support, they offer a slack based support which is fast and incredibly helpful.
  • Fast releases, they release new features every 2 weeks and actively seek out improvement ideas from end-users.
  • NFS and SMB co-existent support through mapping permissions allows mixed end users to connect through there native protocol.

Cons

Azure Blob Storage

  • One thing we wish was done better is more guidance for building it out from day one. We did not know what we were doing and until we hired an implementation person that understood what we wanted to do. We spent a lot of time and money doing things over several times.
  • Help customers hook up with talented (local) implementation specialists would be great.

Qumulo

  • Admin users are not able to be tied to SSO or LDAP accounts.
  • At the start there was no RBAC but this has since been addressed.
  • While there is incredible analytics, there is no native way to get historical trends by volume or user.

Documentation sometimes appears to be out of date or not fully documented properly with new releases. It is like documentation comes out for a specific version and is quickly out of date. Another issue is documentation is scarce on new releases and only seems to get properly updated (and sometimes is still wrong) once enough people hit the forums to complain.

Their Slack-based support is like nothing I have experienced. They are fast, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile, even when an issue is not clearly their's to solve. They are committed to your success. The engineers on the Slack channel are oftentimes the engineers that programmed the very same feature you are asking questions about or having issues with.

Qumulo

Qumulo was not the least expensive but we were blown away by support offered and pre-sales support to ensure questions were answered. Our main challenges were mixed end-user platforms and a diverse set of use cases on those end-user computers. Having the dual access to volumes, over NFS and SMB, helps us greatly in this area.

Return on Investment

Azure Blob Storage

  • Azure Blob Storage is just way cheaper than anything we could afford to do on-prem. Forecasting spend is way easier with predictable growth than it is with large capital expenditures every few years, and that ability to grow or shrink dynamically is simplifies things.

Qumulo

  • Reduced cost in support and upgrade times compared to old fiber San.
  • Allows the Service Desk to focus on other things since permissions and access are simplified.
  • Very easy and bandwidth efficient replication allows us to comply with DR.
