The European Union defines Smart Cities as the interaction between people and technological systems that use energy, materials, services, and resources in a sustainable way.

Increasingly, municipalities are investing in technology to improve municipal management and provide their citizens a better quality of life and sustainable space. Therefore, in recent years we have seen greater investment in smart cities.

The success of the implementation of smart city projects is limited by the IT infrastructure available to municipalities.

Cloud services are a more efficient option than using a native data center. Since this technological system generates a huge volume of data.

It is the data that supports decision-making, the extraction of valuable insights that allow optimizing urban planning and the creation of intelligent and dynamic systems to maximize the efficiency of municipal services. ” (…) Smart cities generate huge volumes of data from sensors and other devices. Integrating, storing and analyzing this data in real-time requires a great deal of computing power, which is not possible without resources for cloud computing services that assist in the process. It is also necessary that the computational resources are scalable, not only over time, to allow the integration of new workloads in the future, but also in short periods of time (…) ”.

MD3’s innovative answer in partnership with Qumulo

When it comes to storage and management of unstructured data in a scalable hybrid cloud, MD3 allies with Qumulo.

By putting know-how, innovation, and excellence, it makes the most sustainable process of digitization of the most demanding public and private organizations, in Portugal.

The Qumulo solution in the construction of Smart Cities

The Qumulo platform is the only one that allows the visibility of all information in real-time, enabling “valuable insights” to create smart cities.

In a city-scale gear, data security is a highly sensitive point. Therefore, Qumulo has a highly effective automatic encryption service.

Qumulo saves physical and financial resources, does not compromise on a good performance, and is all integrated into the standard service subscription.

Above all, Qumulo’s versatility allows the management of large volumes of small files and other large files that require a very powerful performance capacity, namely in the elimination of delays and bottlenecks.

The common cloud and data center interface radically facilitates the process of viewing and managing, moving, and analyzing file data. IT Managers have the ability to automate workloads and machine learning technology. Also an innovation in Qumulo.

The initial implementation is fast and simple. In other words, the client does not need to upgrade his equipment or run the risk of incompatibility between the applications he uses with Qumulo’s system.

The exclusive line for clients, available 24/7, gives enormous comfort to IT managers.

Once they know that we do not work for accounting closed tickets but for the client’s delight, with whom we work together, whenever necessary, we provide an engineering team, which knows all the products developed by Qumulo as well as their real impact on each company.

The scalability of Qumulo’s hybrid cloud solution gives total freedom for custom growth.

In addition, usable storage space is used 100%.

Data Storage Revolution

In short, this solution is revolutionizing the scalable hybrid cloud data storage market in Portugal.

Similarly, it is driving world leaders in sectors such as Media and Entertainment, Banking, Education, Scientific Research, Medicine, Public and Governmental Entities, Engineering Projects, and others, whose success requires an infrastructure of great reliability and performance at its base.
