I used Uber for the first time a few weeks ago (I like to walk, sue me). It was jaw-droppingly awesome. I had set it up in advance, which took a few minutes, so when I needed it, I simply pressed a few buttons on my HTC (my companion’s iPhone failed in the same task seconds earlier – haha). Uber told me when to expect a driver (5 minutes) and they were right. They knew where I was and where I wanted to go. We were there in minutes. At the end, I just said “thank you” and got out..

v-net.tv/wp-content/uploads/Making TV More Personal.pdf A new report by VIDEONET, Making TV More Personal  (issue 24, April 2014), highlights Scality’s advantages for powering the next generation of nPVR (network personal video recorders). Discussing the need for massive storage to support a large subscriber base for catch-up and on-demand video playback, the report also notes the extreme scalability of Scality’s scale-out architecture, the advantages of storing video content rather than on fragile consumer set top box disks, and the benefits of high performance and of fast recovery from failure for operators.

March 17th – Beyond Scality and SGI oem agreement for the RING sold as SGI OmniStor, SGI wished to validate and integrate the RING with SGI DMF. Data Migration Facility, the famous SGI solution, largely deployed and adopted in technical computing environment is a well known and recognized product. Considering the RING, one of the leading massively scalable storage platform in the industry, based on object storage technologies is an obvious choice for SGI. How data manager could deal with the real data deluge they live every day?

The Ecosystem is a must

December 18th – Data Centers represents the Holy Grail of IT since large and visible internet companies demonstrate their capability to redesign and revolutionize the heart of corporate IT. They also promote, validate and build real high-end infrastructure on commodity hardware. This ange represents the first dimension of the ecosystem for large scale IT environment, the capability to be hardware agnostic meaning that the difference comes from software. Scality is a software only solution deployed on x86 “classic” servers transforming a rack of servers into a large storage pool.

Object storage

There are two types of traditional storage systems: block storage, which manages data as blocks within sectors and tracks, and file storage, which manages files organized into hierarchical file systems. Block storage is used by Storage Area Networks (SANs), where a SAN disk array is connected via a SCSI or Fiber Channel network to servers. File Storage exist in two forms: File Servers and Networked Attached Storage (NAS). NAS is a file server appliance. File Storage provides standard network file sharing protocols to exchange file content between systems. Standard file sharing protocols include NFS, SMB (CIFS), and AFP. Index tables.

Of Clouds, Storage and Openness

San Francisco, CA – Tuesday, September 18th As I have previously talked about on this blog, there has been a significant amount of discussions about the Openness of the Cloud this year. In the League of Clouds, I was saying that it is necessary for the industry to start working on a set of standards used by every cloud Service or Software provider to ensure interoperability, which will in turn limit lock-in, boost adoption and in the end benefit all.
