MediaHub Australia has selected Scality RING software-defined storage (SDS)

Scality RING to raise data resiliency and lower TCO for MediaHub
San Francisco, CA and Sydney – June 26, 2018

Scality, leader in software solutions for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control,  and MediaHub Australia, a large-scale, multi-client digital media, play-out and distribution facility, announced today that  MediaHub Australia has selected Scality RING software-defined storage (SDS) to replace both tape and legacy storage arrays to support multiple workloads and services, including media active archive, content activation, video-on-demand, SAN and NAS offload, video transcoding and MAM and DAM storage.

“Enterprises worldwide are contending with an accelerated pace of digital transformation where reliable and flexible IT infrastructure could be the difference between winning and losing customers,” said Alan Sweeney, MediaHub’s Chief Executive Officer.  “Recently, MediaHub was looking to replace a couple of existing storage arrays with a solution which was more durable, more efficient and required less maintenance. We also wanted to be able to offer a number of new services to the market, which would require a modern, software-defined approach to storage. Our new storage array needed to be able to compete with cloud economics at scale, have geo-protection to improve the overall availability of the system, be resistant to site failure and reduce the overhead of the active stand-by storage model. This solution we found is Scality RING.”

“The RING provides true transformative innovation, with a fundamentally different way to store and manage data, transcending the limitations of storage appliances and NAS,” continued Sweeney. “Also, Scality RING software-defined storage delivers the enormous scalability that other architectures simply cannot and it runs on standard x86 servers, with no hardware lock-in, or lengthy hardware validation cycles – delivering the key advantages of cloud-hosted storage. For MediaHub, this is the future of our data management.”

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.
