Scality RING Storage Solution Now Offered as a Back-End for Nuxeo Content Management Platform
Boston, Paris – October 6, 2011 – Nuxeo, the provider of an Open Source Content Management Platform for Business Applications, today announced a technology partnership with Scality, the organic storage pioneer. A new integration will enable Scality to provide the storage and management of the binary files and unstructured data used by the Nuxeo Platform.
“Content management applications have large storage requirements that grow rapidly over time, and they need a highly scalable storage solution,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s CEO. “Scality offers a robust storage solution for Nuxeo applications that grows with the data.”
With this integration, file storage for Nuxeo content management applications, such as Nuxeo Document Management, Nuxeo Digital Asset Management, or Nuxeo Case Management Framework, can be managed by the Scality RING solution, on-premise or in Scality-powered public clouds, in a way that is highly scalable and robust. The Scality option provides globally cost-effective high-level storage, including high performance, robust data protection, high availability, and scalability.
“With the Scality integration, we can offer our customers greater options for storage with the Nuxeo Platform,” said Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO. “Since Scality storage can be on-premise or in scality-powered public clouds, deployment options are flexible, in line with Nuxeo’s offering.”
Content architects, developers, and solution providers who need a content management solution to meet substantial requirements in terms of unstructured data — large documents or numbers of documents, high availability and failover requirements — and looking for an alternative to expensive hardware solutions, will be able to rely on the Nuxeo and Scality’s integration.
Scality will present a Solution Focus on “Cloud and distributed storage for Nuxeo” at the forthcoming Nuxeo World in Paris on 20th and 21st October.
For those unable to attend Nuxeo World, a webinar on November 9, 2011, will provide an overview of the Nuxeo / Scality partnership and solution.
