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 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.
March 8, 2016 — HPE officials have put a focus on storage in recent weeks. The addition of the Cloudline CL5200 comes less than two months after the company announced an enhanced partnership with Scality that officials said will accelerate the development and adoption of software-defined storage.
At a CrowdChat a few weeks ago, a number of us started talking about server-based storage, big data, etc, and the topic developed into a forum on data and its inherent qualities. The discussion led us to realize that data actually has a number of attributes that define it – similar to how a vector has both a direction and magnitude.
Scality and HP have teamed together to offer a single massive-scale storage platform for multiple applications and workloads. This software-defined storage platform was designed for multi-application environments with mixed-workload performance requirements at petabyte scale. The platform combines the power and flexibility of HP ProLiant servers with the scalability, availability, and performance of the Scality RING software. This provides an enterprise-class storage solution that can handle the coming onslaught of Big Data.
