Scality RING scales out linearly and limitlessly

Scality Joins the Dell Technology Partner Program offering a software based High Performance Object Storage solution
Paris, France – Jan 8th, 2013

Scality, an object storage leader for consumer web applications, today announced that it has been formally recognized as a certified partner in the Dell Technology Partner Program. By certifying Scality RING on the Dell PowerEdge R620, Scality offers a deployment proven integrated solution that delivers scalable, high performance storage for unstructured data.

Scality RING organic storage provides a purely software based object storage solution for both primary applications and long term storage. Running on standard x86 servers it enables the selection of the optimal hardware for any given deployment, allowing customers to specify the hardware vendor of their choice, based on their existing trusted relationships and the demands of their application and users.

“Scality has enjoyed a positive relationship with Dell for some time, even before the Technology Partner program certification. Our many Dell based installations attest to our work together, and of course validates both a technical and business compatibility” said Jerome Lecat, CEO, Scailty.

Scality has announced several Dell based deployments including:

  • A solution for large file, media storage at German Aerospace’s Earth Observation Center – where RING provides storage for high resolution satellite imagery
  • Email storage for 8 million users at Libero, Italy’s largest email provider
  • A Storage as a Service solution supporting 2.5 million customers at Host Europe in Germany.

Scality RING’s organic flexibility and wide range of application connectors make it a great choice for a variety of different large scale storage use cases – including StaaS, Email, Media and Web 2.0.

Each of the three use cases uses a different connector – best suited to the needs of the client: Host Europe uses an S3 connector that supports flexible billing and Libero uses Scality’s recently announced Scale-Out File System with ARC erasure code option.

Certified on the Dell PowerEdge R620, the RING delivers an affordable and manageable storage solution with scalability and long term durability of data.
