Backup and Archiving at low TCO
It started in 2010, when SFR was looking to consolidate internal storage services, including backup and archiving. The flexibility of the RING platform as well as the low TCO and easy scalability led the team to choose Scality. By 2012, SFR saw that they could build services for their customers using the same technology that was serving their own internal business well, so they developed external services using Scality RING: SFR Sync and SFR Backup, and offered the services to consumer and business customers. SFR has since expanded both in service offerings and in capacity. In 2014, they added a content delivery network (CDN) service to the portfolio….and they keep growing. Today, they store more than 7PB of data on their HPE storage servers running Scality RING software-defined storage using both file and object interface to a variety of applications, including Commvault, Symantec, Ctera, and Nomadesk.
