This section provides a reference for Qumulo Core upgrade modes from version 3.3.3 onwards.

  • An instant software upgrade requires restarting only the container on your nodes and has a downtime of less than 30 seconds without disruption to the operation of the cluster.
  • A platform upgrade requires either a complete reboot (rebooting all nodes in your cluster at the same time) or a rolling reboot (rebooting the nodes in your cluster one at a time).
  • A quarterly upgrade aggregates all improvements and fixes since the last quarterly upgrade. The version number of a quarterly upgrade ends in .0.

For downloads, release notes, and upgrade paths for on-premises and cloud releases of Qumulo Core, see Qumulo Nexus 🔒.
