For many Service Providers, digital business depends on the success of single Web-scale applications such as streaming video. These cloud-based applications are spreading from consumer, social, video, and photo websites to other industries, including public sector, financial services, manufacturing, and life sciences. A growing number of industry-specific clouds now host web-scale applications that serve data (e.g., IoT and sensor data), analyze data (e.g., Hadoop and real time), and share information (e.g., electronic health records).
Just as with multi-app cloud applications, single web-scale applications can have enormous data requirements. They are often also deployed at vast scale. For example, the streaming video service Dailymotion manages over 4,000 hard drives in their RING system, and hosts more than 300 million customers a month. To support such scale, many of these applications are inherently distributed and eventually consistent. The Scality RING natively supports distributed architectures, which greatly improves efficiency, often removing entire layers of “translation” infrastructure in the process.
Scality RING has a proven track record of supporting production environments that require millions of simultaneous video uploads and streams, billions of objects, and capacity expansions of tens of petabytes, all while maintaining 100% uptime.
In addition, the RING supports S3-based applications with full compatibility, along with other storage standards like Swift, CDMI, and Scality’s hyper-efficient native REST protocol, giving Service Providers complete choice for the optimal fit.
Why Scality RING for Web-scale Applications?
- Scales beyond petabytes at 50% the cost of AWS S3, without the “outbound” bandwidth tax (the cost differential is even greater across AWS regions)
- Enables newer high performance services like HD video streaming with high throughput, across many simultaneous users
- Improves customer satisfaction with 100% reliability with high availability guaranteed
- Lowers maintenance costs—requires less than one FTE per six petabytes
- Simplifies infrastructures with object storage and file compatibility and integration
