Time Warner Cable selects Openwave Messaging’s Universal Messaging SuiteTM with Scality’s RING Organic Storage solution
Redwood City and San Francisco, CA – October 30th, 2012

Openwave Messaging, Inc., a leading global provider of universal messaging software solutions, and Scality, a storage infrastructure innovator, today formally announced a new strategic alliance whereby, Openwave Messaging will bundle and resell Scality’s RING Organic stateless storage as part of its Universal Messaging Suite™. The solution is available immediately.

Stateless infrastructure provides a significant increase in reliability while decreasing operations cost for large scale messaging systems. The system architecture uses an active-active design, with no single point of failure. With a no single point of failure implementation, hardware failures are automatically compensated for by the software, which simply and automatically reallocates resources on the fly. The automatic shifting and rebalancing of the load eliminates the need for urgent action and crisis management that would occur on a hardware failure in a different architecture.

Time Warner Cable selected the joint offering to ensure its messaging environment would be able to grow and scale dynamically with its business, and to ensure high availability and zero system downtime. “The Openwave Messaging and Scality bundled solution puts us 18 months ahead of the market,” commented Bill Webb, vice president, Systems Engineering, Time Warner Cable. “It’s crucial that our systems are always on, and always able to handle our variable peak load. We believe that with Openwave Messaging and Scality we have the best solution for our needs.”

Openwave Messaging’s Universal Messaging Suite™ provides a powerful, open and flexible, complete messaging environment optimized for today’s most complex messaging requirements including millions of mailboxes, security controls, identity management, and ease of integration with internal systems and external partners.

“In today’s business climate it is essential to provide innovative solutions that deliver high performance while ensuring business continuity and five nines availability,” stated Dave Ratner, Openwave Messaging’s president and CEO. “The Scality offering fits perfectly with our messaging solution to deliver unprecedented robustness and reliability to our joint customers.”

With Scality Organic RING, the storage is deployed on commodity server hardware, which further reduces the cost of the messaging platform. Scality’s organic design allows for easy hardware refresh when hardware reaches the end of its life. Instead of the traditional process of staging a new system and going through a complete migration, Scality Organic RING software handles technology refresh by automatically incorporating new servers and retiring those marked for removal. Furthermore, Scality Organic RING constantly rebalances resources so that there are no points of congestion, and as a result the system does not require manual balancing for performance management. The design scales linearly, so that mailbox growth or user growth can be handled without major investment or redesign.

“We have been working closely with Openwave Messaging to advance the scalability of large scale email infrastructures, and we are glad that this work now leads to today’s strategic partnership announcement,” said Jerome Lecat, CEO of Scality. “Scality will be able to benefit from Openwave Messaging’s proven messaging solutions and its strong market presence in North America, Western Europe and Japan, and Openwave Messaging will benefit from a solution truly unique in the industry.”
