SFR is a textbook Scality Web and Cloud success story: SFR has installed 2PB+ of Scality software as the backend storage cloud to offer a wide range of web applications to both business users and consumers. The applications include file sync & share (with Nomadesk), backup (CTERA, Commvault, Symantec), web hosting applications and video distribution. Key for the project was Scality’s wide range of integration methods and the multi-workload support.
SFR installed a stretched Scality RING over their Paris and Lyon data centers, and leverage the intelligent data protection to provide the right SLA’s for each application. The low TCO enabled Scality to replace the existing NetApp infrastructure. SFR are now investigating how they can leverage Scality’s integration with OpenStack to compliment their service offerings.
