Media Workflow ebook

Backups matter, and CTOs & CIOs know it. Data is central to the success of business, so losing it—even losing access for hours or days—affects productivity and profitability. Discover how Scality offers Integrity and Speed with this ebook

We mainly use Scality RING for storage for distribution of digital contents such as video. In this business, as new content is added daily, securing and adding storage capacity is one of the major tasks.

Nobuhiko Watanabe Manager, Infrastructure Division, DMM.com Labo Corporation
DMM.com built a multi-petabyte streaming infrastructure with Scality RING.

The Challenge

DMM is the largest video distribution business in Japan. They sought a storage solution for their Origin Server that could manage performance with absolute stability at petabyte scale – and grow with their business and catalog. They have been growing easily with Scality RING since 2015.

Eliminated CDN Cost

Many customers access the campaigns that we conduct sporadically. Therefore, predicting the system load is difficult, and we were offloading to CDN in the past, but offloading became unnecessary.

In addition, although we used to have to construct a dedicated system for each campaign, Scality RING makes it possible to omit this construction. I think thats a very large result from the introduction of Scality RING.

Renting a video used to be difficult

Video rental stores were never where they were needed. Popular videos were always in short supply. If you did manage to find the right film, the DVD was scratched or the video cassette not rewound. And then, once you had seen it, you had to return it to the store again. Tedious.

Such high-demand, high-volume sales required the Infrastructure Division at DMM.com under Mr. Watanabe to move that title to an alternative storage system to ensure a decent customer experience. The ongoing strong growth of the content library was also driving existing systems to costly limits. Upgrades were expensive and required migrations of existing data – a time-consuming exercise, to say the least.

The Solution

With Scality RING, scalability is no more our pain point

With an ever growing content library of more than 300,000 titles, most of them decidedly not mainstream, DMM.com delivers results on the search for different media. It does so fast and in most any file format you want.

Shifting core components of its content library to the Scality RING provided Mr. Watanabe’s team immediate relief. The Scality RING was effortlessly capable of handling all requirements that DMM.com’s customers could throw at it. In fact, it did it so well that DMM.com reduced the cost of its content delivery network. And no longer needed alternative storage systems for high-demand, high-volume content. Everything was easier. And took less time.
