RING Organic Storage: storage for the petabyte scale
Scality’s RING Organic Storage is the ultimate solution for the storage of unstructured data at petabyte scale. Scality RING is based on patented object storage technology that delivers high availability, ease of operations and total control of your data. It is capable of handling billions of files, without the hassle of volume management or complex backup procedures.
The organic design creates a scale-out system with distributed intelligence that has no single point of failure. As a result, RING Organic Storage is resilient and self healing, and technology refreshes do not require any data migration or downtime.
RING is typically used for private clouds (especially backup, video and file sharing, media archives, healthcare, genomics and geophysics), for public clouds (StaaS), for SaaS applications (webmail) and for Web 2.0 services.
Thanks to its parallel architecture, RING Organic Storage delivers very high performance, up to hundreds of thousands of random I/O per second and multiple GB/s of throughput.
Scality RING Organic Storage is also hardware agnostic, allowing you to leverage inexpensive, off-the-shelf components or the very latest innovations in server and network technology. It runs on standard Linux distributions (CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian) and supports both automatic tiering and erasure coding. At every moment and for every use, Scality RING allows you to build your storage based on the best price in the market.
