KumoScaleTM software is architected and priced to deliver hyperscale economics even for providers with a relatively small data center footprint. An exceptionally high efficiency results from the optimum blending of dissimilar items, and KumoScale software delivers a wide range of performance points, while combining workloads on each SSD and storage node to extract the maximum value from each hardware asset.
Service provider tenants expect a full panoply of storage services. Unfortunately, the absence of any critical functionality, even if it's not a big revenue generator, can force valuable customers to look elsewhere. KumoScale software can help keep the most valuable customers by offering everything needed without building dedicated infrastructure for infrequently used price/performance points.
Infrastructure Engineers are constantly asked to do more with less, and teams aren't growing at the rate of users or compute node fleets. KumoScale enables overloaded SREs to automate even complex storage tasks with building blocks modeled after the Kubernetes® standard, even when provisioning storage for bare metal, VMs, or legacy environments. The ease and speed with which powerful "operators" can be constructed to automatically perform the most intricate maintenance operations, reduces repetitive and error-prone tasks, and gives engineers time and breathing room to plan for future growth. And because of the exploding popularity of Kubernetes in the IT community, qualified people will be easier than ever to find and retain.
