Belgium’s #1 Service Provider Relies on Scality RING for reliable email archive storage
Manager, Network Applications and Services, at Telenet
Telenet uses x86 servers from best-of-breed vendors, including HPE, expanding as needed.
Telenet has grown its Scality RING environment more than 25X its original deployment.
Scality designed Telenet’s email Architecture end to end, including the customization of the Zimbra suite and the migration strategy for moving the user’s email from the legacy platform to the new one.
The infrastructure is distributed across multiple, geographically distributed data centers. The 1st tier of RING storage acts as a 24 hour cache. At the end of this period e-mails are migrated to Tier 2. Tier 2 is spread across two facilities, with the guarantee that at least one copy of the data is located at the local data center and another is at the other data center.
This in combination with data copies across the RING’s nodes ensures highly predictable data resilience. So unlike a traditional NAS or SAN system there is no need for data backups (or the risks, expense and time expenditure that would be associated with them).

“I think that every company that has a requirement for deploying or hosting services that require mass data storage can benefit from the Scality RING solution. It will absolutely help them in delivering (their services) at a lower cost, and help them to offer them at a more competitive level (relative) to the others in the market. And with the evolution of cloud services ramping up, this will be seen more and more in the market in the near future”.
