Guest Post écrit par SCC Le stockage est l’un des derniers bastions de l’IT où l’impact du digital a tardé à se faire sentir. Pourtant, après vingt ans d’une lente évolution, l’ensemble de l’écosystème du stockage semble vivre un réveil brutal. Nouvelles technologies logicielles et non plus seulement matérielles avec le SDS (software-defined stockage), nouveaux business models, systèmes plus flexibles et moins chers… La révolution est en marche alors que longtemps on a pu se contenter de changements incrémentaux successifs. Le tout, bien sûr, au service des utilisateurs et des entreprises. Quel futur pour l’infrastructure ? Et quelle place, demain, pour.

Keep Calm, but Keep Up!

As the British Ministry of Information said during World War II, “Keep Calm and Carry On,” the motto for anyone claiming S3 API compatibility might be “Keep Calm, but Keep Up!” Since the introduction of the S3 service in 2006 there have been 60 releases of the service and protocol. Scality introduced their first version of the S3 REST based protocol in 2010, built using C language coding. The potential scale of this type of multi-petabyte object-based platform calls to the speed and robustness of a C language based solution. However, with the advent of new authentication mechanisms, increasingly sophisticated.

S3 to a Waiting World

As the clever name suggests: AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service) is simple, and who isn’t interested in a simple way to store stuff? The digital and mobile revolution has touched us all, even those who have little to do with the IT industry. The majority of the world’s population now has access to a mobile phone and Statistica1 reports the estimation of over two billion smartphones in use this year. An exabyte of storage only represents 500MB of data for each of those users, or about 200 stored photos each. It’s easy enough to establish the need for exabytes of.

From Portable Operating System for Unix Filesystems (POSIX), introduced first in 1988 to Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (S3), introduced in 2006, data persistence is experiencing a revolution. In 2013, AWS published the fact that their S3 platform housed over 2 trillion objects, and that the number was doubling every year. That would bring them to something like 16 trillion objects stored and if we assume that the average size of objects is only 256KB in size, the platform would currently house somewhere well into the Exabyte capacity range, putting the platform somewhere around 1% of all the world’s.

Das Kernforschungszentrum Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) betreibt einen der schnellsten Supercomputer der Welt. Um schnelle Analysen auf 30 Petabyte an Langzeitdaten ausführen zu können, setzt es auf „Scality Ring“, ein Software-defined Storage-System für Object Storage. Dieses liefert einen Datendurchsatz von 28,5 Gigabit pro Sekunde.
Reflections on another Milestone Achievement   Yesterday, Scality was proud to be in a press release issued by Open-Xchange, announcing that Rackspace has chosen Dovecot Pro on Scality Object Storage for their email platform; and this will benefit more than 3.5 million end-users globally. “By moving to Dovecot Pro and Scality Object Storage, we hope to reduce the number of servers for our email platform to just a fifth of its previous size. This will result in massive cost-savings in up-keep across hardware, electricity and cooling,” commented Dan Shain, technical director, Rackspace. “We are planning to do this without any.

The combination of higher quality and more forms of capture, along with the more consumption on-demand, means a lot more storage in the middle. We’ve been seeing these trends up close for the last two years, and our conversations at NAB only reinforced them.
