Orange supports millions of global users with its Scality-powered consumer storage cloud.
Philippe and his team gained a level of control that allowed them to roll out new services on top of the RING infrastructure without having to worry about adding additional storage. That was easily and seamlessly done.
Philippe Moreaux shares his experience working with Scality RING
““Scality met our TCO requirements, and allowed us to greatly reduce our cost of cloud storage. In terms of performance requirements, we might have had some doubts or concerns at the very beginning of the project, but Scality definitely delivered so we’re very satisfied.””

It is the little things in life that make it worthwhile.
Taking a picture of your son and knowing that it is instantly backed up, with no chance of it getting lost. Receiving the video from your wife’s reaction as she saw that picture on her phone just after you took it. Coming home after a long day at work to a door opening automatically before you, beckoning you into the warm house. Being alerted that your washing machine over owed (again) but that the house system has already stopped the machine and shut the water valve to limit the damage.
To go a step further:
Employing usage data to optimize the energy use of appliances and your house in general as well as use electricity when it is cheapest. Leveraging weather data and sensor information and run sprinklers to minimize water usage while keeping your garden in pristine condition. Learn usage criteria of your house to heat rooms when in use and lower the heat when not, all preemptively. Enable you to let friends in to the house when you are running late.
Orange moves to Scality Ring
Philippe and his team also gained a level of control that allowed them to roll out additional services on top of this new infrastructure without having to worry about adding additional storage – that was easily and seamlessly done. To date, Orange is already operating storage in the double-digit petabyte scale. The capacity of the storage system is doubling in 2016 and its speed of growth is accelerating. Orange can now make the future come to life. With innovative services that cater to your needs.
The Scality RING is scalable and boosts performance and capacity, all with minimal impact.
Scality’s software-defined storage solution decouples the software layer from the hardware it manages. Scality RING fully protects you against downtime. Which is to say, you won’t experience any. Ever. Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it. Erasure coding insulates data from hardware failures. The result is a truly always-on, 24×7 operational system.
