Com Hem case study recounts initial decision and multiple capacity expansions to resilient, economical, always available storage; showcased at NAB show, April 7-12 in Las Vegas
San Francisco, CA – April 4, 2018 Scality, leader in software solutions for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, today announced that since Swedish triple-play service provider Com Hem became a customer in 2016, the company has already made multiple expansions to its petabyte-scale Scality RING infrastructure. Currently, Com Hem relies on Scality RING to ensure on-demand, uninterrupted content availability to their customers across Sweden.
Having suffered a painful outage with their legacy storage, Com Hem decided to look at alternatives with two lofty goals in mind: improving the service and lowering the cost structure. “We needed to add redundancy,” said Jacob Morgan, Com Hem’s Head of Datacenter. “And that would have been very expensive with the storage we had been using.”
Two years and two expansions later, Com Hem’s infrastructure team not only improved their company’s flexibility in positioning their offering in the highly-competitive video distribution business, but they’ve also gained peace of mind. Scality RING has proven its real resiliency with the ability to keep all content available at all times. “Knowing that even if we lost a datacenter, we’d be fine is really key,” adds Morgan.
Software-defined Scality RING object storage turns any standard x86 server into highly-expandable storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent availability—all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy systems. Scality RING is deployed by more than 200 petabyte-scale customers around the world. It features native file protocols and high-fidelity AWS S3 API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty, and geo-replication for disaster recovery for customers requiring ironclad data protection.
