resilient storage

After analyzing several alternatives, EDF chose software-defined Scality RING object storage to deliver strong, resilient storage for multiple use cases at half the cost of competitive solutions.

“It’s stability is the most impressive thing about Scality RING. In the end, it’s the category’s best software.”

Ruggero Gatti Data Management Engineer, EDF

Award-Winning Innovation

While IT is a small organization within the massive EDF group, it bears a great deal of responsibility. Ruggero Gatti’s team was recently presented an award for innovation—and the innovation that generated the honor was their deployment of the Scality RING.

“They consider lots of ideas at the production level for these awards,” said Ruggero Gatti, Data Management Engineer at EDF. “The idea is to recognize that even in a big, conventional organization, we can innovate.”

The first use cases for EDF’s use of Scality RING are Backup (stretched across two datacenters) and Big Data (offloading more costly primary storage as a data lake).
