Storage infrastructure plays a critical role in the ability to store, manage, and curate vast and rapidly growing libraries of media content. Data-aware scale-out NAS is flexible in order to adapt to your organization's business growth and takes advantage of new revenue opportunities, while providing uncompromising protection and availability; to ensure business continuity, manage millions or billions of digital assets, achieve cost containment and avoid hardware vendor lock-in, maximize price/performance and price/capacity with flash-first hybrid design and support a wide range of workloads and files sizes

Aaron Passey is Co-Founder and CTO of Qumulo. Before joining Qumulo, Aaron was the Chief Technology Officer at Clustrix producing a true scale-out OLTP relational database. Previously, Aaron was the chief architect for Isilon Systems, where he oversaw the technical direction of the product and was named as an inventor on 33 patents.
