Facts about The RING
Scality RING offers native file storage access in addition to a standard object storage interface. Why does it matter to have both?
It allows for future-proofing of your storage infrastructure: native file access makes the storage available to your current enterprise applications right away, while you have the option to switch to object access whenever your cloud-enabled applications require that along the way, on your own terms and on your own timeline.
Scality’s native file access is layered on top of an underlying object store, so it inherits the performance, scalability, and flexibility attributes Scality is known for.

Object storage is ideal for storing unstructured data (as opposed to transactional data in databases, as it requires serial operations). It is most commonly used for active archive applications, content distribution, and public and private cloud services. Historically, object storage has been used for cold data. Today, the performance requirements of primary storage are well within the reach of many modern object storage products.
