Qumulo offers free software to help medical organisations fight COVID-19

CloudHealthcareTop Stories

Qumulo is offering its cloud-native file software, for free, to public and private sector medical and healthcare research organisations that are working to minimise the spread and impact of the COVID-19 virus.

Effective immediately, Qumulo is making its software in the public cloud available free of charge through to July 2020 to organisations combating the COVID-19 outbreak.

Researchers and clinicians are working day and night to learn more about COVID-19. Organisations are building tools to track its spread and to develop containment and eradication measures, including the development of a vaccination. The public cloud is critical to enabling actionable results, fast.

Matt McIlwain, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre and Managing Partner at Madrona Venture Group, said: “Research and healthcare organisations across the world are working tirelessly to find answers and collaborate faster in their COVID-19 vaccine mission

 “It will be through the work of these professionals globally, sharing and analysing all available data in the cloud, that a cure for COVID-19 will be discovered.”

At a time when every minute matters for the public health of the global community, research organisations need the ability to launch workloads with large amounts of compute power to analyse large data sets using their trusted applications for research. With Qumulo’s cloud-native file and data services, organisations can do that in the cloud to capture, process, analyse and share data with researchers distributed across geographies. Qumulo’s software works seamlessly with the applications medical and healthcare researchers have been using for decades, as well as Artificial Intelligence and analytics services more recently developed in the cloud.

“Using Qumulo’s software to manage and understand petabytes of data real-time, medical and research organisations around the world can work together and leverage the power of the cloud and hybrid environments to fight COVID-19,” said Bill Richter, President and CEO of Qumulo. “This virus requires every organisation that can make a difference to do so right now, and band together to solve this problem with all available technology resources and the smartest minds on the planet collaborating seamlessly.”
