Scality reçoit la certification Dell Technology Partner

Scality rejoint le programme Dell Technology Partner grâce à sa solution de Stockage Objet Haute performance.

Zone EMEA Paris - 9 Jan 2013 - Scality, leader du stockage objet pour les applications web, a aujourd'hui reçu la certification partenaire pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Grâce à la certification de Scality RING sur Dell PowerEdge R620, Scality offre désormais une solution intégrée, déjà déployée en production chez plusieurs clients, qui stocke de manière évolutive et performante les données non-structurées.

Le système de stockage organique RING de Scality offre une solution de stockage objet entièrement logicielle à la fois pour les applications primaires et le stockage à long-terme. Elle fonctionne sur des serveurs x86 standards, permettant de choisir le matériel optimal pour tout type de déploiement, ce qui laisse au client le choix du distributeur de matériel informatique, en fonction des relations de confiance déjà établies, des besoins de l'application et de ses utilisateurs.

Jérôme Lecat, PDG de Scality, nous explique que « Scality a une relation très positive avec Dell depuis longtemps, avant même la certification pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Les nombreuses installations de systèmes Dell que nous avons réalisées attestent de notre relation et de notre compatibilité technique et économique. ».

Scality a annoncé plusieurs déploiements basés sur des systèmes Dell, tels que :
- Une solution pour le stockage de fichiers média volumineux pour le Centre d'Observation Terrestre de l'Agence Spatiale Allemande - où RING permet de stocker des images satellites haute-résolution.
- Le stockage primaire d'emails pour les 8 millions d'utilisateurs de Libero, le plus gros service Email en Italie.
- Un service de Stockage Cloud supportant 2 millions de clients chez Host Europe en Allemagne.

La flexibilité et le large éventail de connecteurs d'applications de Scality RING en font un choix parfait pour de nombreux cas de système de stockage très haute capacité - y compris StaaS, Emails, Médias et Web 2.0.

Chacun de ces trois cas utilise un connecteur différent, suivant les besoins du client : Host Europe utilise un connecteur compatible Amazon S3 qui permet une facturation flexible, et Libero utilise le nouveau Système de Fichiers Scale-Out avec la technologie de protection des données ARC (à base d'Erasure Coding).

Certifiée sur Dell PowerEdge R620, RING est une solution de stockage abordable, facilement opérable, évolutive et avec une très longue durabilité des données.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies. Knowing when and where these devices connect from is critical for a number of scenarios in supply chain management, disaster management, emergency response, M2M, location marketing and more. In his session at @Th...

Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations u...
