Global Enterprise Cloud
Explore Scality's new online magazine where you will find all the latest articles and news.
Over the past decade, enterprise data centers have evolved into complex environments, designed to serve multiple workloads that include shared file storage, backup & archiving, compute virtualization, B2C cloud offerings and many legacy applications. Running such heterogeneous storage environments is inefficient and puts a heavy burden on the storage TCO.
Innovative enterprises are now looking to replace storage silos with unified data storage systems that can fundamentally match both the data “types” and the access patterns presented by their applications: software-defined storage with multi-protocol support (for file, object, and VM access), efficient and persistent storage for mixed data types (very large files to billions of small records) and support for very large data capacities (grow organically and scale forever).
Scality RING for Global Enterprise Cloud
Scality RING is petabyte-scale, software-defined storage; leveraging a high-performance, object storage architecture. The RING runs on standard servers, providing deployment flexibility, simpler support, many hardware options, rapid adoption of hardware innovation, and multi-generation hardware support. The RING has native interfaces for file, object, and VM applications, and the performance to serve 80% of storage workloads, eliminating silos and overhead, and enabling new applications. The RING can consolidate and protect data in a single, petabyte-scale, 100% uptime environment without adding administrators. The combination of software flexibility, multi-workload and application consolidation, and high scale and availability reduces total costs by 50-70%.
