Storage for Web and Cloud Services
Explore Scality's new online magazine where you will find all the latest articles and news.
The cloud-computing paradigm has disrupted the technology landscape by changing how we build and consume technology. Google, Amazon, and other advanced service providers are powering this accelerated pace with a new model of IT: one based entirely on standard servers, powered by independent software, where the infrastructure is a utility at the service of applications through programmatic interfaces.
Web application and cloud service providers are now deploying similar architectures. Web application providers at scale want the operational cost benefit of deploying their own infrastructure instead of paying the hidden cost of public cloud services. Cloud service providers need to expand their services to their customers but for that they need more efficient infrastructures to become competitive with the bigger players.
