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.

Leo Leung, VP of Corporate Marketing at Scality, presents: “Unified Storage for OpenStack”
At OpenStack Tokyo Scality shared how companies could utilize the Scality RING as a solution to simplify storage challenges; grow organically to exabytes of capacity and scale-out performance for multiple applications, workloads and protocols. The Scality RING is a Software-defined Storage (SDS) solution that frees storage administrators from purchasing hardware appliance based storage arrays, and converges multi-workload, multi-protocol services into a single management view, to provide Cinder, Glance, Swift and Manila file storage services for 80% of OpenStack workloads.
