Hardware-centric storage systems, such as dedicated appliances and NAS, have hit a wall. They can’t cope with the massive data volumes, need for elastic scalability, and dynamic workloads of Digital Business, Big Data, and the cloud.
This is why they’re giving way to software-defined storage (SDS). In this radically different approach, storage resources are decoupled from hardware, aggregated into a giant pool, and distributed dynamically to applications and users as needed. The result? Scalability skyrockets. Hardware utilization soars. Costs plummet.
Scality RING software-defined storage delivers the enormous scalability other architectures can't.
Scality allows you to use ANY x86-based hardware. Which means you can select the most optimal hardware to fit your application needs today and tomorrow, all in one system. And unlike the competition, you can continue to scale without the need to migrate to a different system. We also don’t penalize you for long-term support and maintenance. The combination provides you with lower and more predictable TCO over time.
