The ultimate goal of any organization that embraces scalable computing must be optimization at every layer, with the ability to enhance each layer without creating imbalance elsewhere. For example, increasing efficiency in Open Compute storage hardware requires increased responsibility for availability and durability in the software layer. Only with this symbiosis between hardware and software can administrators and users reap the many rewards of scalable computing: incredible efficiency at scale, always-on stability, and budget and resource alleviation.

Scality was present at the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo 2015. The OpenStack Summit provides a wide array of persistent storage services, ranging from local data volumes managed by the Cinder API, to object storage via Swift, image storage via Glance, and shared file services through Manila. For OpenStack administrators, this can create a management burden by imposing multiple independent storage silos to provide volume, file and object storage for Nova based application instances.

BFM Business Interview of Scality

Scality, the leader in software-defined storage for the information age: Jérôme Lecat – 10/13 Jerome Lecat, CEO of Scality, explains Scality’s mission and its business. Since its creation in 2009, the French-American company has become the leader in software-defined storage and helps business manage massive amounts of data. “Our customers have thousands of hard drives and servers, and our job is to ensure that the data is reliably and securely stored there,” Lecat says. – Good Morning Business of Tuesday, October 13, 2015, interviewed by Stéphane Soumier on BFM Business.
What is the ‘Data Utilization’ management required in the Internet of Things (IoT) era? With the rapid spread of mobile devices, penetration of cloud computing and rise of network video distribution service, several changes are rapidly progressing in the world of the Internet, and ‘IoT’ is one of the big changes. What kind of impact does IoT bring to corporate management? ‘Father of the Japanese Internet’, Jun Murai, Professor in Department of Environment Information, Keio University; Jerome Lecat, CEO Scality, a rising storage vendor; and Hiroshi Fujiwara, Chairman and President, Broadband Tower, the first domestic distributor of Scality’s petabyte-scale software-defined storage.
OpenStack enterprise readiness received a lot of attention back at the OpenStack summit in Vancouver earlier this summer, which is particularly interesting as it shows that OpenStack has reached a certain level of maturity. But does it mean that enterprise IT departments have the tools necessary to be able to operate OpenStack and maintain an installation? Can legacy enterprise applications be moved to the private cloud? A notable difference between a cloud app and a traditional enterprise business application is that the former is engineered with the dynamic nature of the cloud in mind. It is keeping itself aware of.

Scality, le pionnier du stockage de données à grande échelle: Jérôme Lecat – 13/10 Jérôme Lecat, PDG de Scality, a expliqué les missions et les activités de son entreprise. Depuis sa création en 2009, cette société franco-américaine est devenue le leader dans le secteur du stockage à très grande échelle des données informatiques. Nos clients ont des milliers de disques durs et notre métier est de faire en sorte de distribuer les données sur tous ces disques, affirme-t-il. – Good Morning Business, du mardi 13 octobre 2015, présenté par Stéphane Soumier, sur BFM Business.
Interview by Chris Mellor With IBM buying Cleversafe, one of the two leading object storage startups, and the other being Scality, we asked Scality CEO Jerome Lecat half a dozen questions about the potential impact of this acquisition. El Reg: Does this imply that the shared storage model (Spectrum Scale aka GPFS) for hyper-scale storage is not sufficient? Jerome Lecat: There are many limitations as the shared storage model (Spectrum Scale aka GPFS) for hyper-scale storage is not based on an object architecture; namely, inodes, raw capacity of file system storage, etc. That type of model simply cannot scale as.
Partners say a Dell acquisition of EMC would rattle Cisco’s cage, forcing the networking giant to go hunting for an immediate storage acquisition. “They’re going to have to have a storage solution after they admitted Invicta was dead,” said a top executive solution provider and Cisco partner ranked on the CRN 2015 Solution Provider 500 list, who declined to be named. “If Dell buys EMC, Cisco seriously has got to do something.” Click here for the full article
IBM is planning to acquire CleverSafe, HGST bought Amplidata a while ago, and RedHat did the same with Ceph 18 months ago. If you put this information alongside the fact that disk shipments are doing very well, even when compared with Flash, it’s no wonder object storage is so hot right now. Scality is really focused on its growth now (targeting an IPO for 2017). It’s one of the best, and very scalable, object storage solutions out there and it is doing pretty well with RING, its product, sold as scale-out NAS (counting for 40 per cent of its sales)..
The storage market is still feeling the effects of a shake-up as new technologies come to the fore and legacy players scramble to avoid obsolescence. With SANs, NAS and DAS on the decline, flash offerings, converged infrastructures, cloud and software-defined storage (SDS) are making their marks, spawning an array of ambitious start-ups and forcing the hands of vendors that have relied on the technologies of yesteryear to turn a profit. For end users, many of which are juggling multiple storage types and attempting to strike a balance between old and new, the solution provider community’s expertise will prove invaluable in.
Visiting broadcasting trade shows is always a very humbling experience as these shows make you realize how little you know about the larger media and entertainment industry. I couldn’t say one smart thing about the newest UAV’s, drones, quad or octo-copters except for they look like fun toys. Which is the best green screen technology? Who’s the leader in mobile satellite dishes? Fortunately the Scality team knows a whole lot about video storage. Even stronger: I’d dare to say we have become an authority when it comes to building high-performance origin storage infrastructures, massive scale long-term archives and low-latency nearline.

The prerequisite to tapping the vast amounts of data coming off the connected universe is an economic way to store that information while the analysis performed, which is what earned a startup called Scality Inc. $45 million in funding last week. The investment caps off two years of tremendous growth that saw sales of its storage platform more than quadruple. The software decouples capacity and management operations from the underlying hardware, allowing organizations to use cheap off-the-shelf equipment for their environments to lower costs. Scality claims that this allows its platform to efficiently accommodate up to petabytes of data with.
“I’m Jerome Lecat, CEO of Scality. I am extremely excited to share with you a massive transformation that will affect every one of us, in our personal lives, and in every business in every industry. This change is how data storage is done. In the next couple minutes, our customers, our partners, our shareholders, and our leadership team will talk to you about this massive change, and about how Scality is at the core of it.”

“Deluxe OnDemand started about four and a half years ago. And, originally our target was the rent-tailers and retailers – so providing a library of content to power their online video stores. And over time we’ve really morphed a little bit to help power cable operators. So, both to direct to the set-top for playback and also for their TV Everywhere strategies for a delivering video-on-demand content. We have to take in all the content from 200-plus different content providers; aggregate it all, normalize all the meta-data, create transform rules and as well as do all the video transcoding to.

Let me let you in on a little secret. Data can really be in two places at once. Or three. Or even more. And you can do this without specialized WAN acceleration technologies or overlay/virtualization technologies on top of your storage. How is this possible? First, you need software that can treat distributed hardware and bits as one logical entity. Second, you need to present those bits to customers in protocols they (or their computers) can understand like NFS or SMB. Third, you need to protect all the bits and tolerate issues like site failures. Finally, you need to be able to.
  Scality Interviews Hans-Josef Lauer, Manager of IT Operations at RTL II, a top German TV Station who built a petabyte-scale Active Archive with the Scality RING software. “RTL II is a classical TV Broadcaster but by now it’s transforming more and more into a digital media house. We not only have content for the classical TV channels but also for online purposes for YouTube and also use the social networks to connect more and more people for those channels.
