“Scality has enjoyed a positive relationship with Dell for some time, even before the Technology Partner program certification. Our many Dell based installations attest to our work together, and of course validates both a technical and business compatibility” said Jerome Lecat, CEO, Scailty.
Scality has announced several Dell based deployments including:
– A solution for large file, media storage at German Aerospace’s Earth Observation Center – where RING provides storage for high resolution satellite imagery
– Email storage for 8 million users at Libero, Italy’s largest email provider

Scality RING’s organic flexibility and wide range of application connectors make it a great choice for a variety of different large scale storage use cases – including StaaS, Email, Media and Web 2.0.
Each of the three use cases uses a different connector – best suited to the needs of the client: Host Europe uses an S3 connector that supports flexible billing and Libero uses Scality’s recently announced Scale-Out File System with ARC erasure code option.
