“We had to separate our processing scaling from our storage scaling. We needed an SDS provider with performance, operability and survivability – a solution that could scale to 10s of petabytes”

Rackspace Looks to Scality RING to Create Efficiencies with Infrastructure Assets, Meet SLAs

Growth and Improvements

Scality RING helped Rackspace manage costs, plan for growth, and improve operability for its hosted services. The company also realized CAPEX and OPEX savings.

At SDS Day Tokyo 2017, Dan Shain, Senior Development Manager at Rackspace, describes his experiences with managing a growing business and implementing a flexible, open storage infrastructure based on software-defined storage.

Email accessibility and reliability

A long standing member of the Dovecot Open Source community, Rackspace decided to move to the Dovecot Pro system. This allowed it to migrate the back-end storage infrastructure to the Scality RING, leveraging HPE Apollo 4510 servers.

In line with its support promise, Rackspace planned to do this without service and support disruption. The combination of Dovecot Pro and the RING reduced the number of servers required by 80%, providing massive cost savings in upkeep across hardware, electricity and cooling.

It also made it easier for Rackspace to continue operating and growing its email service, while maintaining its usual levels of quality service.
