Hosted on Standard x86 Servers

The RING software can be hosted on standard x86 servers with a wide choice of popular Linux distributions, and requires no kernel modifications. This approach also decouples Scality from maintaining hardware compatibility lists (HCLs), to bring support of new platforms to market much faster. The use of commodity components also extends to the network elements with 10/40/100GbE interfaces acceptable for both the external connector interfaces and the internal RING interconnect fabric.

This flexibility makes it possible to construct capacity-optimized RINGs or performance-optimized RINGs. In all cases, the RING software abstracts the underlying physical servers and hard disk drives and can exploit the lower-latency access characteristics of SSD storage to maintain its internal metadata. RING is designed to scale out over time, across various hardware vendors, server generations and densities expected as a normal part of the RING platform lifecycle.

EXTENDED DATA MANAGEMENT

Hybrid Cloud. Solved.

The New Era of Hybrid Cloud

RING8 brings its most sophisticated XDM Solution to Market to:

  • Eliminate data silos: massively scalable & durable storage for core clouds that can span across petabytes as a single system
  • Process Intelligent orchestration: data mobility policies across core, edge & public clouds, to move data for greater data protection.
  • Create Global Visibility: data view & search across all clouds/sites for central point of governance for data
  • Deliver Edge Data Services: storage, caching & mobility policies on object storage and NAS

Object Storage Core

High-fidelity AWS S3 compliant cloud storage with Identity and Access Management (IAM)

Scale Out Object Storage

RING is fundamentally built on a scale-out object-storage layer that employs a second-generation peer-to-peer architecture. This approach uniquely distributes both the user data and the associated metadata across the underlying nodes to eliminate the typical central metadata database bottleneck.

Scale Out for Increased Performance

Built on a distributed scale-out architecture to support very high levels of application workloads and concurrent user access. This is based on a highly-available, high-performance metadata engine that can also be scaled-out for increased performance. Deployments can be geo-replicated deployments to enable highly-available disaster recovery solutions, for both Metro-Area Network environments (“stretched” deployments), as well as Cross Region Replication (CRR) asynchronous replication of individual S3 buckets or a full site.

Scale Out File System

A Distributed Architecture

A Virtual File System

RING supports native file system access through the integrated Scale-Out-File-System (SOFS) with NFS, SMB and FUSE Connectors for access over these well known file protocols . SOFS is a POSIX compatible, parallel file system that provides file storage services on the RING without the need for external gateways.

  • Shoe-in replacement for traditional file-based storage but without its inherent limitations, shackles,
    or headaches
  • Suited for file-based workflows with existing applications seeking data from a local filesystem
    accessed over SMB or NFS
  • In-situ transition path to object storage for new cloud-enabled, S3-capable applications, whether
    locally (private cloud) and/or remotely (public/hybrid cloud)

Capacity as Needed

SOFS works directly with the data protection and durability mechanisms present in the RING, including replication and configurable Erasure Coding schemas. SOFS can be provisioned into one or more “volumes”, and can be scaled in capacity as needed to support application requirements. Each volume can be accessed by any number of Connectors to support the incoming load workload, even with mixed protocols (NFS, SMB or FUSE).

DATA PROTECTION ACROSS MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

Best in class Geo-Distribution

ONE RING ENCIRCLING MULTIPLE LOCATIONS MEANS
A single logical RING deployed across multiple data centers, in a stretched (synchronous) deployment mode across sites, providing for full site failover, complete data consistency, and zero RTO and RPO with automatic failover and failback. Replication and erasure coding levels and deployment topology define overall failure tolerance.

EASE OF USE

Effortless Deployment and Management

In order to make RING as straightforward and simple to deploy and manage, Scality took into consideration many factors, striving for the most delightful user experience. Our customers must feel at home and extend their reach from the first interaction with the RING interface.

The essence of an excellent UI design is helping users complete a given task as simple and time-efficient as possible. The core to making the Ring a great UI design was to deliver the users an intuitive and smooth experience which was key to our design process.
