Paris-based Dailymotion has expanded the Scality RING

Scaling from Terabytes to More than Thirty Petabytes with No Downtime, Scality RING Software-Defined Object Storage Assures Predictable Solution Growth for World’s Second Largest Video Sharing Site

San Francisco, CA – November 16, 2017 Scality, a pioneer of software-defined, multi-cloud data storage, today announced that Paris-based Dailymotion has expanded the Scality RING object storage back-end to its massive video repository across its global network of data centers. Scality now supplies more than 30 petabytes of useable capacity to the video sharing behemoth. Dailymotion’s move to Scality RING was impelled by its requirements for high performance, boundless scalability, assured uptime, and intuitive administration controls.

  • “Scality was the obvious choice. Performance, stability, and reliability is what impresses us most about Scality RING, which altogether meets our storage and business requirements. We could not find any other object storage solution to be as mature as Scality RING. It is well-developed, broadly deployed, and receives timely evolutionary enhancements to keep it cutting-edged.”

Alan Martins, VP of Infrastructure at Dailymotion, added: “With Scality we went to the next level and we can continue scaling more smoothly.”

Scality RING replaced EMC Isilon after demonstrating a more straightforward architecture and delivering significant performance improvement over that legacy system. Dailymotion now relies on Scality RING as its primary storage. The company recently added several petabytes for backup, as well as nine petabytes across its New York, Singapore, and Sunnyvale data centers, strengthening video distribution capabilities in those regions and enhancing user experience with local caching/points of presence.

“The requirement for uninterrupted content uploading and sharing, and seamless system expansion makes Scality RING indispensable to Dailymotion’s fast-growing business,” said Erwan Menard, president and COO at Scality. “Expanding Scality storage to more than 30 petabytes without system interruption is testament to the value of Scality RING for video sharing environments that demand zero downtime.”
