Supermicro and Scality RING Solution Advantages

Starting with as few as three storage servers featuring either 2U 24-Bays or 4U 60-Bays, customers can start with small deployments that can be dynamically scaled by adding drive packs to grow node capacity or add entire nodes, scaling-out both capacity as well as storage bandwidth.

Availability

  • Stretched (synchronous) multi-site deployment for site failure protection
  • Asynchronous geo-replication or disaster recovery
  • Concurrent multi-site file access

Scalability and performance

  • Start small and grow to hundreds of petabytes
  • Linear performance scaling across thousands of servers, multiple sites and an unlimited number of files/objects
  • RING components are independently scalable
  • Aggregate RING connectors achieve tens of gigabytes per second throughput and beyond

Data access

  • Native AWS S3 and file (NFS, SMB) storage interfaces in one consolidated system
  • Fully parallel, scale-out with POSIX-style file system

Manageability, service and support

  • Browser-based administrative interface with full topology view, monitoring, reporting and graphing
  • RING status with zone, server and node details
  • Full management and control with rich and scriptable CLI
