“Our data is protected by the RING software and completely unconstrained by hardware, so it has been a simple matter of adding and removing servers. We have faced zero risk of interrupting or impairing service, and our customer satisfaction has never once been compromised”
Bart Provoost Manager, Network Applications and Services, at Telenet
Scality RING is the underpinning of Telenet’s email architecture.
Since 2010, Telenet has relied on Scality RING to keep its subscribers’ email intact and available–even through multiple expansions and upgrades–with exceptional data durability and no service interruption. Their vast messaging storage system has been expanded multiple times, and today, it runs like clockwork on multiple generations of HPE storage servers, keeping more than 24 billion unique objects for Telenet’s more than 4.9 million subscribers.
“As our business has transformed and our user base has grown, our need for storage capacity has increased exponentially. However, scaling up hasn’t required any maintenance windows or any downtime”
Email Architecture Strategy
One of Scality’s first customers in 2009, Scality worked hand-in-hand with Telent to design their email architecture end-to-end, including customization of the Zimbra suite and the migration strategy for moving users’ email from the legacy platform to Scality RING. Telenet’s RING is distributed across multiple, geographically-distributed data centers to ensure data resiliency and always-on availability. And, because if that data distribution on Scality RING, unlike with traditional NAS or SAN storage, they have eliminated the need for data backups–reaping big savings in time and cost.
“I think that every company that has a requirement for deploying or hosting services that require mass data storage can benefit from the Scality RING solution… at a lower cost, and offer them at a more competitive level to others in the market. With the evolution of cloud services ramping up in the near future”
Nick De Jonghe Manager, Network Strategy & Architecture, at Telenet
