Scality’s High Performance object storage solution

Scality illustrates its powerful cloud storage solution based on high performance, ultra scalable RING object store powered by the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Family
San Francisco, CA – September 26th, 2012

Scality, the award winning cloud storage infrastructure innovator, today announced its participation in the Intel Cloud Builders program. The Intel Cloud Builder Reference Architecture white paper illustrates how Scality’s high performance object storage solution with Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers and technologies delivers a powerful Cloud infrastructure based on Scality RING Organic Storage.

“Participation in this program represents an important partnership for us. It further validates our position as the high performance, ultra scalable object store. ”, said Jérôme Lecat, Scality CEO.

Scality RING is entirely hardware agnostic and can run on any commodity server running Linux on x86 processors. The new Intel Xeon Processor E5 Family helps Scality to deliver faster processing during peak periods – such as data requests, key space operations and data protection using ARC* Erasure Code. Erasure Coding technology consumes CPU and memory intensively, to deliver perfect data protection at a fraction of the cost of replication.

“Scality leverages the Intel Xeon Processor E5 Family of processors for its intensive data processing needs, especially for Erasure Coding. Faster processing translates into using less hardware to reach higher data protection and performance“, confirms Serge Dugas, Chief Alliance Officer.

“ Leading cloud Data Centers have already absorbed exabytes of photos, media, and email. Yet this unstructured data continues to grow non-linearly. Storage solutions managing explosive data growth require more than just increased capacity, the storage software must be highly automated and scalable, while incorporating intelligence for data protection. The new Intel Xeon Processor E5 Family have converged multiple cores with key integrated storage features delivering energy efficient performance and the scalable data protection required for Cloud and Big Data applications“, said David Tuhy, General Manager of Intel Storage Division.

A few months ago ESG published a lab validation report, providing a benchmark with regard to Scality RING performance and scalability. The report measures IOPS, throughput and latency deployed on Intel infrastructure. It demonstrates the predictable linearity of RING’s performance given scaling hardware resources. This illustrates, not only RING’s ability to deliver high performance numbers, but that it also ensures that costs remain predictable as the store grows. The report is available on http://scality2015.wpengine.com/research_reports.

The Scality Intel Cloud Builders reference architecture paper is available on http://bit.ly/Q38p0V.

* ARC is the acronym of Advanced Resilience Configuration, a built-in feature that tolerates several simultaneous racks, nodes or disks failures based on Erasure Coding techniques.


Past Releases


Since 2009, Scality has been enabling people to derive maximum value from data by solving their cloud-scale data storage and management challenges with our award-winning RING and Zenko technologies. More than 500 million users rely on Scality RING and Zenko™ to store and manage hundreds of petabytes of data – more than one trillion data objects.

A recognized leader in distributed file and object storage, Scality offers solutions for today’s reality of hybrid and multi-cloud data management. RING turns commodity x86 servers into an unlimited storage pool for unstructured data, whether file or object; and the Zenko multi-cloud controller, available in open source and enterprise editions, provides a window into data, no matter where it lives, with orchestration, management and search functionality.
