It’s not every day you get to ride the wave of a fundamental shift in technology. I’d like to talk a bit about how I am staying afloat. My introduction to shared storage was with the original HP EVA series. They were pretty awesome – a single, user-friendly web interface could get you from power up to production in a couple of hours. LUNs (Logical Unit Numbers) so massive that they could host upwards of 20 virtual machines were automatically spread across hundreds of drives, utilizing the aggregate capacity and performance to deliver what would eventually be coined ‘private clouds’..
April 28th – Scality was very visible and active during NAB 2014 a few weeks ago with ton of visits on our booth. We had the opportunity to be interviewed to introduce the mission of Scality and the design we selected to build a massively scalable storage platform: the RING.
December 27th – Data volume continues to grow at a rapid rate and CIOs wish to leverage new architectures and cloud ubiquitous presence to offer multi-point of presence, data redundancy, off-site data protection (DR) and by effect a business continuity behavior for their corporate critical applications.
December 6th – Adoption is growing fast for Scality during the last few months with several various use cases. As we target large environments with tons of small or large files, we see that users started to consider the RING platform for different usages. In fact, many of them begun with one specific need and several months of usages later associated with a strong real trust in the platform, they realize the flexibility of the RING and started to enable new connectors for new applications.
